Fat for increased stamina?
I read an interesting article in Muscle Media.
There was a recent study in Denmark where they gave athletes a supplement of omega 3 and omega 6 fats which they say most people don't get enough of.
They found that "...within one month of giving athletes 1 tablespoon per 50 pounds of body weight per day of an oil blend with an n-3: n-6 ratio of 2:1, stamina increased by up to 40 or even 60 percent. Athletes could exercise longer before reaching exhaustion, recovered more quickly from fatigue, could exercise more often without overtraining, healed quicker from injuries, built muscle faster and had less joint pain."
They don't tell what kind of athletes they used in the study or what kind of activities they performed.
What do you think? It sounds too good to be true but if half of what they say is true it might be worth trying?
