    'anti-inflammatory'

    When a food is meant to have anti-inflammatory effects on the body, does this really mean faster recovery from a workout?
    Does this mean that not as much protein needs to be consumed to repair the damaged muscle tissue from working out...

    Im confused, could someone just explain this whole idea about anti-inflammatory and muscle gains.

    It doesnt mean you need to change any of your macros or numbers, im pretty sure it just means it helps lower the body's overcompensating inflammatory response

    potentially, but to what degree is the question.

    i wouldnt say its worth more than adequate nutrient or vitamin/mineral intake.

    why are you concerned?

    I have just been reading alot of articles on fish oil and its many many amazing benefits on the human body and mind. For working out, I have read many articles that it promotes fat loss and with its anti inflammatory benefits and abilitiy to increase metabolism and protein metabolism, promotes faster recovery from workouts for faster muscle gains.

    So I was just interested in the whole antiinflammatory concept and what it is reallt about. I have concentrated fish oil right now and take them as my workout supplement and want to further understand what they do for the muscles.

    You are really making this alot more complicated, then it needs to be.

    Here is what you need to worry about. Eat, Lift, Rest. Repeat.

    You won't see any significant changes, unless you are going from eating absolute crap, to a healthier choice of macro nutrients.

    This should be really simple, stop over complicating it.

    Im just wondering if adding this to my diet will enhance things. Fish oil increases protein metabolism as well as metabolism, is an anti-inflammatory supp., and increases insulin sensitivity. That wont give me any significant changes?

    Fish oil is a supplement with many many amazing health benefits, and now that I know these facts about it also being an anabolic supplement as well, I want to be fortunate and not here that it wont give me any significant changes.

    yes take fish oil

    i take about 9 caps a day

    it seems that i stay leaner on bulks, and cut faster on a cut
    but its no steroid

    the effects are VERY subtle
    you wont notice anything at all unless your extremely anally particular about your physique, and even then, other variables make it nearly impossible to quantify the results

    yes
    take fish oil

    no
    dont expect anything noticeable

    ah well, im still taking it for my physical health because it maintains muscle mass and is still beneficial in weightlifting from all the facts I said (anti-inflammatory, increases protein metabolism..etc).

    Plus it is an excellent weightloss supplement as well because it regulates blood sugar, increases metabolism and lowers insulin levels so fat stored in the fat cells can be used much more often as energy...

    I just found this article on google, I think omega 3s have a bigger impact on muscle gains than you think

    Tip #3: The single-most important supplement

    The biggest limiting factor in naturally training people to getting lean and adding muscle is the consumption (or lack thereof) of omega-3s. Looking at the body structure of cavemen, they had a lot of muscle mass compared to modern man. They got their omega-3s through the meats they ate. Primitive man would break the skull open and eat the brains. Brains are 60% fat, and 60% of that is DHA, the omega-3. What they’ve found is that the more brain-sucking was going on in those populations, the faster the IQ went up.

    Primitive man would also break the bones of the prey and suck the marrow, also rich in omega-3, DHA particularly. DHA is the omega-3 most responsible for brain development while EPA is most associated with reducing inflammation. Don’t take all your fish oil at once though; spread intake throughout the day. Would you eat all your protein for the day at once?

    well that study would be valid if there was some kind of...

    idk
    actual study.

    its purely based on historical speculation and theory
    and the control is

    one group who consumed more brains vs another group which consumed not as much brains...

    i mean
    seriously

    its interesting, but it doesnt strengthen the argument much


    that being said
    YES fish oil is a very beneficial supplement in terms of overall health

    yeah
    its possible that it could help maintained your current levels

    i think that if your diet and lifestyle where very controlled the levels of hormones in your body would stay relatively controlled as well

    take fish oil
    it has 13,743 health benifets and it
    COULD help maintain consistency in your diet

    POSSIBLY leading to less fluctuation in testosterone levels


    i think that is a statement which not TO MANY of the guys here will disagree

    i'll add my two cents: when I started doing my fish oil again, after a month my knees, a long time problem for me, do not hurt and my carpel tunnel is gone. The only thing I added in is the fish oil.

    Well I jab mine into my gas tank and run my car on fish oil. It is so amazing. I also made a salve out of it and rubbed it on my broken arm and it reset itself and was mended in the morning.

    I used fish oil to fix my anal warts. sure enough, I woke up this morning and found my penis 12 inches longer. My wife used it for a week and she has Lara Croft sized boobies. Actually, they were always that way, but now they look like they belong in a cartoon.
