ArQ Defense Ahiflower Omega 3
A completely vegan supplement to support your health.
Flexible joints, quick reaction time, resistance to disease … these are physical goals you strive and train for. Specific types of “good fats,” Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, are crucial to achieving these goals. They support joint health and regeneration, as well as brain and nervous system function, and promote healthy levels of inflammation throughout your body. Your body cannot produce these essential fatty acids itself, so you must obtain them through your diet or with supplements. ArQ Defense Ahiflower Omega 3 supplements provide these critical nutrients in optimized quantities from an entirely plant-based source.
Science for Athletes
As noted above, Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids are important to the health of your whole body, supporting healthy heart function, immune system health, and the growth and regeneration of muscles after exercise . They are taken in via the diet, most often through the consumption of fish. Many Omega-3 and Omega-6 supplements are made with fish extract or are processed from tiny shrimp-like animals called krill . There are also plant-based supplements, but most don’t provide the right kind of Omega-3 fatty acids, called long-chain fatty acids, without being genetically modified to do so.
In the past, if a vegan or vegetarian wanted to get the health benefits of these wonderful fatty acids, they had to either choose GMO supplements, find the still fairly expensive algae-based brands, or permit fish (or krill) into their diet .
Well, you don’t have to settle for that anymore! Better than flax, and not from fish- Arc Defense Ahiflower Omega 3 is superior in quality to Omega-3 supplements from other sources. It is also completely vegan, all natural, and GMO-free.
Directions for Use
Aim for the recommended daily amount of 250-500mg. It is a good idea to also add omega-3 and omega-6 rich foods to your diet, such as nuts, seeds, flax meal, and canola oil (for cooking), in addition to the supplements.
ArQ Defense Omega 3 is made with oil from the ahiflower, a small plant sustainably cultivated in the United Kingdom. This plant naturally has high levels of long-chain Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids in its seeds – the optimal kinds to support your health and performance goals. Ahiflower oil has been shown to be 2.5 times more effective at providing long chain Omega-3 fatty acids than flaxseed, a common ingredient in plant-based supplements .
It is also better for the environment; using ArQ Defense Omega 3 Supplements means that fewer fish are harvested for supplements. This allows fish populations to recover, and helps preserve their biodiversity and beauty for ages to come.
Add ArQ Defense Ahiflower Omega 3 to your supplement regimen, and enjoy the health benefits that a plant-based, vegan supplement can bring.
