omega-3 extra strength : Lean body mass

By Genuine Health

Researchers from Gettysburg College found when individuals took 4 softgels of o3mega extra strength daily for 6 weeks, it led to no overall weight change, but a loss in over 1.1 kg of body fat and a decrease in body fat %. This means o3mega extra strength can improve body composition by increasing lean body mass. Research suggests that these effects may be caused by the omega-3 fatty acids reducing the stress hormone cortisol and by lowering blood pressure.
