Want to maximize your energy?

Don’t forget fats!

“When I eat fatty foods I feel tired!”

“I’m tired because I’m overweight.”

“If I cut out fats I’ll lose weight and have more energy.”

True? Not entirely.

In the world of fats, there is a dark side and a good side. We hear most about the dark side—the fats that build up cholesterol, clog arteries, pack on the pounds, and sap our energy. These are the fats found in deep-fat frying (French fries, potato chips, etc.), meat fats (the grease in hamburgers, lard, etc.), and any fats that are solid at room temperature, among others. These fats do make you tired. They rob you of energy.

Don’t “go to the dark side.” There are fats that not only increase your energy; they are absolutely critical to your body’s energy production process! Essential fatty acids (EFAs) omega 3 and 6, are vital to the health of every cell and a myriad of functions in the body. When you choose AIMega™, you are choosing the good side of fats and will reap rewards, especially in the area of energy.

Oxygen for energy

Oxygen is critical to the production of energy. If you have ever taken an exercise class, your instructor probably focused on your breathing at some point. Without sufficient oxygen intake, we do not have the energy for exercise and other activities. However, oxygenation of the blood is not as simple as breathing in and breathing out. Our bodies must be able to transport and metabolize oxygen for energy production. This is where EFAs (as found in AIMega™) come in.

The EFAs in AIMega™ increase oxygen metabolism, assuring that it is processed into the components needed for energy, growth, and almost every function of the body. EFAs also make the cell walls of the red blood cells (which deliver oxygen throughout the body) more elastic allowing them to pass through capillaries easily. This means oxygen reaches cells more quickly when we have good fats (EFAs) on board. More oxygen gets to every cell of the body, increasing stamina and helping us build stronger, more efficient muscles.

Increased oxygen metabolism helps our brains receive more oxygen which not only helps our thinking processes to be clear, but also causes the message centers of the brain, that regulate the majority of body functions, to send clear messages throughout the body. The better the communication within the cells, tissues, organs, and muscles, the greater energy we experience.

A Danish study was conducted recently with 61 active men and women ranging in age from 16-62, who ingested a blend of omega-3, -6 and -9 for eight weeks. Seventy-five percent experienced improvement in their athletic performance. Fifty-seven percent reported a significant increase in their stamina and endurance. The study ties these increases to “the increase of blood flow and oxygenation of tissues, as well as to an increase in the ability to absorb and utilize oxygen.” (Danish Athletic Study, udoerasmus.com)

Nutrients for energy

EFAs also enhance the metabolism and delivery of nutrients to our cells. Did you know that EFAs are essential in protein metabolism? This is why high protein, no fat diets can be toxic. Without EFAs, protein is not broken into the components needed for muscle growth and other functions. Protein builds up and becomes toxic. Instead of increased performance, lack of coordination, lethargy and muscle weakness can result.
Remember those flexible red blood cells? They not only deliver oxygen to every cell; they deliver all the nutrients throughout our body. EFAs facilitate the nutrient delivery process. The more fully nourished our cells are, the more energy we have. Cell nourishment is enhanced with a balanced profile of EFAs.
