Universal Nutrition Animal Omega

Just the Essentials

Essential. What is essential is core or critical. What is essential is needed day in and day out, it is useful at regular intervals, and it is important to optimal performance. What is essential is foundational. The weights are essential, your desire is essential, the right food is essential. Beyond that, Animal has brought you the foundational products, the year round supplements required for your consistent growth and progress. Those that aren't required to be cycled. Products like Pak, Flex, Nitro and Pump. To this essential category we now welcome Animal Omega, "The Essential EFA Stack". Animal Omega is the fundamental in essential fatty acid supplementation.

The Importance of Diet

If you're wanting to pack on lean muscle mass, add on quality size, or even cut down, you have to first take a look at your diet. No matter what your goals are, your quest for the ultimate physique begins and ends with the diet. In other words, the foods you eat. Tailoring the right meals will yield the right results in the gym. Food... Yeah, when you get down to the basics, it's quite simple--to pack on mass, you have to take in more quality calories throughout the day. And vice versa, to cut down, you have to consume less calories, but also from quality sources. And of course keep up the lifting and cardio. Building a strong, solid physique doesn't just stop once you exit the gym, it really begins and ends with your diet and nutrition which is a 24/7 job.

When it comes to diets, for the most part, most opt for a low fat, moderate protein, moderate carbohydrate approach. "Trimming the fat" was seen as an important part of living a healthy lifestyle and shedding the pounds. This is the old school approach, and one put forth by many champions. This was displayed throughout the 80s and 90s with the increase of low-fat foods coming onto the market and getting heavily promoted in the news. But as years went on, obesity became more of an epidemic and caused the folks in the nutrition industry to look into it. Individuals weren't eating fat much anymore. They shouldn't be getting fat. Right? Wrong.

Low fat diets so often translated to decreased levels of the hormones most vital to strength and muscle growth-obviously a big disadvantage to serious iron athletes.

The Good Fats

Long story short, this science just furthermore sealed what a number of nutritionists and doctors have been endorsing for years-that there is a great role for fats in the diet and they shouldn't be shoved to the background, but instead brought into the limelight. In other words, "fats" in general aren't the problem. It's specific fats which create the issues. Other fats are, on the contrary, important. Over the years, researchers have found that there are countless health benefits of certain fats, the essential fatty acids. In other words, it shouldn't be about cutting all the fats from the diet. Cutting back on saturated and trans fats, yeah. But you should actually start using or upping the intake of EFAs, on the other hand.*

EFAs are those required fats that we as humans are unable to synthesize in our bodies and must be consumed from either diet or supplementation. Just like important amino acids (EAAs as found in Animal Nitro), and other importantl micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals, we need optimal amounts in order for the body to function properly, let alone to make gains in lean mass. Getting the proper EFAs isn't always easy, especially when they are hard to obtain with a common diet. A commondiet consists of an overabundance of saturated fats, trans fats, and those fats from plant sources (think of regular cooking oils) usually overflowing with omega 6 compounds, as they are the easiest and most economical to get your hands on. Now don't get me wrong. Omega 6s are important, as they are EFAs too. But it's not just the types of fats. It's also the ratios. More on that later.*

EFAs exert beneficial effects in many areas, including thermogenesis, anabolism, hormone synthesis, prostaglandin function, immune function, repair of cellular membranes, enabling cells to obtain optimum nutrition and more. For the bodybuilder, EFAs are important for optimal metabolism, hormone production, cardiovascular health, peak performance, reducing exercise soreness and maximizing fat burning. It's a wonder why they are so unnoticed and ignored by the population.*

For supplementation purposes there are only 2 types of fats that are needed; Omega 3's (n-3) and Omega 6's (n-6). Omega 9 is necessary, yet not essential because it can be created by the body in decent amounts. The reason why the body can't make an n-3 or n-6 fatty acid is that human metabolism can't add a double bond to a fatty acid that is more than 9 carbons away from the delta end (acid end). This is also the cause behind why the body can't convert an n-3 fatty acid to an n-6 fatty acid. Yeah, it sounds like science mumbo jumbo, but is essential to see from a chemistry perspective why it's so hard to obtain the right EFAs from the diet.*

The Animal Omega Solution

This is where a supplement like Animal Omega comes into action. Sure, it ain't fancy. No cool bells and whistles here, just the basic building blocks. It's not going to "pack on 10 lb in a week" but long-term, it'll get ya to where ya want to be. EFAs are needed, not just any old EFAs, but the right kinds and the perfect amounts. That's what Animal Omega is all about. Omega is the most comprehensive EFA product on the market. It contains the right fats that bodybuilders crave. It's a full spectrum, molecularly distilled EFA supplement, each pack containing a precise and pre-dosed ratio of n-3 to n-6. It is loaded with sources of Omega 3 oils extracted from various fish sources such as salmon, cod liver, herring, and plant-sourced omega 3s from flaxseed oil. Such a well-rounded mixture ensures that you receive all of the various n-3 extracts that are so important for general health. You get the balance of alpha linoleic acid from flax and the key fish oil extracts, EPA and DHA.*

Animal Omega is then rounded out with key Omega 6 oils, including; borage, evening primrose, sesamin, and CLA. Linoleic acid is the other vital fatty acid found in nature. As mentioned before, lack of n-6 in ones diet is hard to come by. However, there is a specific form of n-6, gamma linoneic acid or GLA, that is important for health. This is contained in ample doses in Omega. The body harnesses n-6 essential fatty acids to make various prostaglandins and leukotrienes.*

Another n-6 found in Animal Omega is CLA. CLA, is touted for its ability to lower body fat, being anti-catabolic, working as an antioxidant and enhancing the immune system. CLA positively influences the metabolism and assists with fat regulation and protein metabolism. CLA, though is not specifically an EFA, (it's a naturally occurring fatty acid found in meal and dairy) is an important addition to the Animal Omega formula as its health promoting properties were too good to pass up.*

Sesamin is another great ingredient added to the Omega formula. It's a naturally occurring lignan found in sesame oil. Sesamin can help encourage fat loss, support liver and kidney health and maintain healthy lipid profiles when coupled along with other EFAs as found in Animal Omega. Sesamin is touted as a promising ingredient in the process of lean mass recomposition.*

All of these powerful fatty nutrients are backed up by a comprehensive nutrient transport complex which allows for maximum absorption and utilization and transport of Omega's essential fatty acids. L-carnitine, lipase and lecithin make up the complex so you can be assured that the elements that make up the n-3 and n-6 complexes are actually getting into your system efficiently and effectively. Another crucial aspect of this complex is the addition of important antioxidants, Vitamins A, D and E, which guarantee EFA stability and prevents them from breaking down in the can. A must have for any type of EFA supplement. This means ultra potent softgels right from the get-go.*

Overall, Animal Omega offers much needed nutrition for the bodybuilder. It's stocked with all of the right fats, in a proper ratio of n-3 to n-6 to help encourage high quality metabolic functioning and body recomposition. It also supports cardio-vascular protection, a healthy immune system and overall health and well being. It won't change your physique overnight, but it will be a great addition to your long term physique goals.*

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • When using Animal Omega, do I need to supplement with any other EFAs?
    No. Animal Omega is complete and comprehensive. It makes EFA supplementation easy-just pop a pack and you're all covered. Keep in mind Animal Omega was not designed for the weekend warrior, but the serious lifter. If anything, you could double on the "packs", but for the majority, a single pack will be plenty.
  • Can Animal Omega be stacked with other Animal supplements?
    Absolutely. Animal Omega is a "foundational" supplement pack and can be stacked along with any of the other Animal supplements, with the possible exception for Animal Test. For best absorption, leave an hour in between the time you take the Omega and any other Animal supplement. An ideal "foundational stack", a year round stack, would include Animal Omega (EFAs), Animal Pak (vits) and Animal Flex (joint).
  • When should I take the Animal Omega?
    For best absorption, Animal Omega should be taken with a meal (like Animal Pak), never on an empty stomach. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, or any whole food meal will do the trick.
  • Does Animal Omega have to be cycled?
    Nope. Animal Omega, as it's a foundational supplement just like Animal Pak, can be taken year round, 365. The key fats found in Omega are absolutely "essential", so you want these all the time.*
  • How many pills are there in Animal Omega?
    7 softgels and 1 capsule. All moderately sized and specially coated.
  • How long will Animal Omega last?
    30 packs total. At one pack per day, you're looking at about one month's worth of EFA supplementation.
  • Why does Animal Omega contain flaxseed oil? If ALA has to convert (not efficiently) to DHA/EPA, why include flax at all, as shouldn't fish oil suffice?
    In short, yes, the body converts ALA over to DHA and EPA, however, there are many other essential processes in the body that require straight ALA in order to properly function. Fish oil, though it is very beneficial in other areas, cannot provide straight ALA, as EPA and DHA cannot be converted reversibly back into ALA, and therefore a straight fish oil supplement deprives the consumer of critical ALA. Omega provides a balance of the two -- fish and flax -- to ensure that overall EFA intake is being covered and benefits will be obtained from all angles. We leave no stone unturned.*
