I have been an active duty Air Force Unit Fitness Program Manager for quite some time now. During that time, I have been through numerous classes on a variety of different aspects of health, from smoking, to weight loss, to fad diets, to circuit/weight training, and virtually every other topic you could imagine.
As a UFPM, I am directly responsible for the management of the health and fitness for upwards of 800 personnel at any given period of time. This means that I administer all fitness testing, I counsel those that are having weight issues, and I aid in training those that desire the added assistance in obtaining muscle mass, losing weight, or whatever their goals are. Essentially, I am a personal trainer for the military.
This job of course is much different in the military however, than it would be in the civilian world. In the military world, we have to have a certain weight, and meet specific standards, whereas civilians are guided by their own desires. This means that in order for personnel to keep their jobs, I have to be on top of all of the best supplements, training guides, equipment, and methods of training that will yield the best results for each individual user's goals.
Throughout my time as a UFPM, I have tried so many different products myself, read about a large number of products, attended classes, and seen the direct results of members that have used these products. I know what works, what doesn't work, and what you have to do to make these products work.
Twinlab Complete EFA Omega 3-6-9 Softgels Omega 3, 6, and 9 are essentially fatty acids that are required by our bodies for the everyday maintenance of cell structure. These acids are extremely important with people that are sick, especially with HIV/AIDs, where the number of acids is drastically lowered. Also, those with cancer and a variety of other illnesses also have low numbers of fatty acids. This means that their body is unable to create the cell structures that are required for healthy cells. By taking more fatty acids, your body is able to create more cells, both white and red, which will enable your body to be healthier overall.
Other aspects of the Omega acids is that they are said to support energy production, by stimulating the cells. It is said that lower cell counts will result in a substantially lower level of energy and that by increasing their numbers, you will feel a significant increase in the energy that you have on a regular basis.
Performance The softgels when taken on a regular basis actually do seem to overtime give me more energy. I have been taking these for about a year with my other numerous supplements and I have felt a pretty decent boost of energy, especially when taken in combination with other supplements and exercise.
While it is realistically impossible for me to tell if they are working on my cells properly, I can say that the boosted energy levels alone are enough to keep me taking the product. I have found that since I started taking the product I am less inclined to drink energy drinks, which were my major downfall prior to hearing about fatty acids.
Overall, the product is very easy to take, doesn't have any bad after taste and seem to be effective for their intended purpose. I have noticed also that I don't get sick quite as often as I used to and I somewhat relate that to the fact that I have increased cell counts. The increased white blood cells seem to give my body the advantage that it needs in fending off sickness, especially during the more noticeable winter months.
