FATS FOR RECOVERY FROM SPORT
Recovery Plus was formulated to help balance your diet with a
40:30:30 ratio of carbohydrate/protein/fat for optimal health
and better performance. "EFA" refers to the essential
fatty acids required in our diet because they cannot be synthesised
by our bodies. "Recovery" refers to the role EFAs play
in restoring general health with a 40:30:30 diet, as well as biochemical
recovery following physical exercise and work.
two major energy sources for the production of ATP during exercise
are carbohydrates, in the form of muscle glycogen, and fats in
the form of fatty acids. Fat is the most misunderstood of the
three macronutrient sources. We are all aware of the association
between a high fat diet and health problems. This is why today's
trend is to buy "fat-free" food products. However, it
is important to know that dietary fat consists of three basic
types of fatty acids: saturated, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated.
fat, is composed of cis-fatty acids typically found in vegetable
oils, cold-water fatty fish (e.g., salmon, tuna, and herring),
avocados, nuts, and some beans. These foods are known for their
important role in an overall healthy diet. It is just as important
to regulate the kinds of fat we ingest as well as the amount of
fat. Unsaturated fats play a beneficial role in the body. Fats
are the most concentrated source of energy in the diet. Many sources
of fat provide important nutrients, carry fat-soluble vitamins
A, D, E, and K through the bloodstream, maintain healthy skin
and are crucial for foetal brain development.
typical diet, quite often, does not include a sufficient amount
of EFAs, especially those referred to as omega-3 fatty acids.

acids. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)
are found in high concentrations in cold water fish (e.g., salmon,
tuna, mackerel, and herring). EPA is used to support healthy lipid
levels and to assist healthy cellular function. EPA is required
for the production of prostaglandins, which encourage circulatory
health. DHA is a major component of human brain tissue and retinal
tissue. DHA serves in the transmission of nerve impulses in the
