ALPHA LINOLENIC ACID (ALA) is an essential fatty acid from the omega-3 family that is important for the health of the human body. Like linoleic acid, the body is unable to synthesize ALA on its own and must be supplied from food. It affects the body on many levels, including the hormonal, immune and metabolic levels. In the diet of athletes, ALA is often used because of its benefits in terms of improving the functioning of the cardiovascular system. It reduces inflammation and improves brain function.
Research suggests that alpha-linolenic acid may help reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering bad cholesterol and blood pressure. In addition, ALA can help reduce inflammation, which is often present in the body of training people, which can help improve recovery and reduce the risk of injury.
Dosage: 500-1000 mg per day.
