PROGENEX Labs proudly released their newest premium product to the general public today. PROGENEX Omega+ is a powerful, readily available and absorbable, Omega 3 supplement. Unlike other Omega 3 products, Omega+ combines the most bioavailable source of Omega 3s—krill oil—with one of the world’s most powerful antioxidants—astaxanthin. This formidable combination is further complimented by the addition of calamari oil—rich in the essential amino acid DHA—and Vitamin D3.
Benefits of PROGENEX Omega+
This special proprietary blend of ingredients is specifically formulated for athletes and has been designed to enhance athletic performance and speed recovery. Omega+ helps to:
- Reduce oxidative stress and fight total body inflammation including reducing key inflammatory markers such as C-reactive protein (Deutsch, 2007).
- Reduce triglycerides and bad cholesterol (LDL) and boost good cholesterol (HDL) (Bunea, 2004).
- Decrease inflammation and muscle soreness, and help maintain muscle mass (Bunea, 2004; Deutsch, 2007; Kidd, 2007).
- Reduce joint pain and prevent injuries due to overuse (Fry, 2001), and
- Increase overall energy (Koyama, 2006)
The potency and power of Omega+ lies in the special proprietary blend of premium ingredients. First, PROGENEX begins with krill oil—the most potent and bioavailable source of Omega 3s on the planet. Krill oil is superior to fish oil because the Omega 3s in krill oil are more readily available and absorbable by the human body. The Omega 3 fatty acids found in fish oil are bonded with triglycerides, which are not water-soluble. Once a fish oil pill is swallowed, the Omega 3s must pass through the small intestine to be emulsified before any cellular absorption can occur.
Krill oil, on the other hand, is water-dispersible. The Omega 3s found in krill oil are bonded with phospholipids (the same structure found in human cellular membranes). This structural similarity negates the need for digestion and provides cells of the human body with an immediately available and absorbable supply of DHA and EPA. Krill oil also eliminates any unpleasant after-taste and the occurrence of “nasty fish burps.”
While the many benefits of krill are too many to explain here, PROGENEX finds the following to be of especial importance to athletes:
- Lower “bad” cholesterol (LDL) by up to 55 percent (Bunea, 2004)…
- Reduce harmful triglycerides by up to 27 percent (Bunea, 2004)…
- Raise “good” cholesterol (HDL) by as much as 43.92 percent (Bunea, 2004)…
- Soothe the pain and discomfort of stiff joints by up to 29 percent (Deutsch, 2007)…
- Boost mental focus by as much as 49 percent (Kidd, 2007)…
- Decrease inflammation by as much as 29 percent (Deutsch, 2007), (Kidd, 2007)…
- Increase your energy by over 50 percent (Koyama, 2006)…
Second, Omega+ harnesses the power of one of the most potent antioxidants and natural anti-inflammatories on the planet—astaxanthin. Astaxanthin has been shown to:
- Decrease Lactic Acid Build-Up: A Japanese study indicated that athletes who daily consumed astaxanthin experienced up to a 29% decrease in lactic acid buildup (Sawaki, 2002).
- Increase Strength: Another study, in Sweden, showed that a six-month regimen of astaxanthin aided in a 62% increase in the number of deep knee bends the test group was able to execute. During the same time, the placebo group increased only 22%. The astaxanthin group increased their strength, on average, 3 times faster than the placebo group (Malmsten, 1998).
- Reduce Joint Pain, Inflammation, and Increase Strength: Astaxanthin has shown tremendous promise in joint pain and inflammation reduction in recent studies as well. In an eight-week study by the Health Research and Studies Center regarding a loss of grip strength due to tennis elbow, those taking astaxanthin showed a 93% INCREASE in grip strength (Capelli, 2010)).
- Decrease Pain: The Journal of the American College of Nutrition reported that rheumatoid arthritis sufferers showed a 35% improvement in their reported pain levels and their ability to maintain their daily activities increased by 40% after only eight weeks of astaxanthin (Journal of the American College of Nutrition. 21(5):Oct, 2002).
- Boost Recovery and Eliminate Soreness: The Human Performance Laboratories at the University of Memphis conducted a three-week study on healthy individuals who experienced knee joint pain after a strenuous weights workout. Predictably the group given a placebo experienced no relief from their knee pain symptoms. However, the group given astaxanthin indicated NO knee soreness post workout (Fry, A. (2001). “Astaxanthin Clinical Trial for Delayed Onset Muscular Soreness.” Human Performance Laboratories. The University of Memphis. Report 1, August 16, 2001.).
Finally, PROGENEX adds calamari oil and vitamin D3. Calamari oil contains ultra high levels of DHA—one of the most important Omega 3 fatty acids for human growth, development, and maintenance. Likewise, adequate levels of Vitamin D3 help improve mood and energy levels, as well as boost the immune system—all essential components for peak athletic performance.
Research and PROGENEX Labs
In addition to the aforementioned studies, PROGENEX Labs has spent close to a year researching and developing Omega+. Through their research they discovered the most effective ingredient dosages to get maximum results. Simply stated, too much krill oil or too much astaxanthin, is less effective than the right amount (Park, 2010).
PROGENEX's special proprietary formula contains the precise amounts of ingredients for optimum results. Additionally, they have not compromised on quality. PROGENEX Omega+ contains only the most premium ingredients. Their product label attests to that. (insert pic of Product label from Omega+ folder).
PROGENEX Omega+ is a daily supplement and the following are the recommend dosages:
For healthy adults and/or athletes (high school athletes and above): Take 2 soft-gels per day.
For extreme athletes and individuals suffering from cardiovascular disease: Take 3 soft-gels per day.
For younger athletes: Take one soft-gel per day.
