Unique high-potency triglyceride supplement in a sea of fish oil products aimed at athletes
PITTSBURGH, Pa., December 3, 2013 – Klean Athlete®, a line NSF Certified for Sport® nutritional supplements for athletes announces today 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.” Unlike most other fish oils, 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.
KLEAN OMEGA™ joins the existing eight Klean Athlete® supplements including: Klean Multivitamin™, Klean Antioxidants™, Klean Cognitive™, Klean Probiotic™, Klean Isolate™, Klean Electrolytes™ , Klean Endurance™ and Klean-D™.
Douglas Laboratories® maintains outstanding quality control from start-to-finish for Klean Athlete® ingredients and products. They are one of the few supplement providers who control manufacturing, packaging and distribution, thus ensuring that the highest quality product reaches every athlete.
