Providing the best flaxseed products for athletes in Ireland

As an athlete you are always looking for a new training method or improvement to your diet that will give you an edge on the competition. Our 100% certified organic flaxseed oil contains that all-important Omega 3 element that has the restorative and healing properties that athletes need.

Our 100% certified organic flaxseed products are an excellent source for Omega 3 and is a great option for athletes looking to add that powerful Omega 3 to their diet.

What is Omega 3 and what can it offer the athlete?

ALA or alpha linolenic fatty acid omega-3 is an essential fatty acid. When we say ‘essential’ in this context, this means we cannot produce it ourselves so we must consume it in our diet from other sources. This Omega-3 fatty acid that is found in flax oil converts in the body to hormone-like compounds that drive practically every process in your body from your immune system to cardio function and so much more.

At Adora Farm, we believe Flaxseed products are particularly important for athletes as they can offer very specific benefits.

  • Faster recovery after hard training – the Omega 3 in flax seed products counteracts inflammatory activity naturally. These lower levels of inflammation will also aid your tissue and muscle fibres to repair and renew.
  • Reduce muscle soreness – Omega 3 fats have been shown to improve blood flow to muscles during exercise. They can also decrease swelling, muscular soreness and enable you to increase your range of motion after injury.
  • Burn fat and slow down muscle loss – some studies have also shown that more Omega 3 in your system also will enhance insulin sensitivity. This improves fat burning in muscles and inhibits fat storage. New research is even investigating whether or not omega 3 can actually regulate muscle growth, helping athletes during extended rest periods.
  • 100% natural organic solution – we focus on providing products as nature intended them and we can confirm our flaxseed products are 100% certified organic and can play an excellent part in the athlete’s diet.
