December 4, 2013 — Klean Athlete, a line of NSF Certified for Sport nutritional supplements for athletes recently announced that it is expanding its product offering with the addition of Klean Omega, a supplement designed to provide essential omega-3 fatty acids from clean, pure fish oil to support the cardiovascular, neurological, and joint health of athletes who want to reach peak performance through optimal health.†
“Klean Omega is an essential addition to the Klean Athlete line,” says Andrew Halpner, PhD, head of Klean Athlete R&D. “Klean Omega is one of the very few fish oil products on the market that is NSF Certified for Sport, and is to our knowledge the most potent triglyceride EPA and DHA sport formula available in a convenient single soft gel.”
Klean Omega is also a bovine-free product by using a unique fish oil gelatin soft gel from tilapia.
Klean Omega high-potency fish oil may assist in the normal recovery of inflammation after vigorous exercise, promote healthy joints, and support proper breathing and lung capacity in active athletes.”†
In a study published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, researchers found that participants taking fish oil for six weeks increased lean muscle mass and reduced fat mass. In other studies, omega-3 fatty acids have also been shown to promote better oxygen delivery during exercise, help remove lactic acid from the body, and improve reaction time in athletes by supporting the central nervous system.†
Like the rest of the Klean Athlete line of products, Klean Omega recently underwent a meticulous testing and verification process to receive the esteemed NSF Certified for Sport certification, which ensures that it is free of banned substances. Recognized by major sports organizations including the NFL, MLB, NHL, and PGA, the NSF Certified for Sport program was developed in response to the concerns of athletes, coaches, team owners and others about finding banned substances in sports nutrition products.
