Why You Should Use FFA Supplements


Supplements are a controversial topic in the world of fitness. There are a lot of athletes who claim that they’re “all-natural,” which can mean a lot of different things. Often, it means that they don’t use steroids, but some expand this to say that they don’t use any artificial supplements at all. In our humble opinion, this is either not true or it’s an unnecessarily extreme way of looking at fitness. There’s nothing wrong with supplements as long as you use them carefully and listen to your body.

That being said, when people say “supplements,” they usually think of protein. However, there’s another group of supplements that’s just as important as protein, if not more. We’re talking, of course, about FFAs, or functional fatty acids. These chemical compounds include omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, the only fatty acids, in fact, that your body cannot synthesize on its own. They’re often called “essential” fats for this very reason; if you don’t ingest them, there’s no other way for your body to get them.


The problem is that they’re not popular. You’ll never see pro¬†bodybuilders in magazines claiming that FFAs are the reason they got jacked. And why should they? FFAs are dirt cheap and there’s no real profit in advertising them. You should be aware, however, that they’re one of the basic building blocks of a healthy body. One of the benefits of FFAs is actually related to weight loss. Fats good for weight loss, what? Well…yes. Through several mechanisms in your body, which we won’t be getting into right now, FFAs can help you reduce excess body fat, particularly around your belly. Not only that, they can even help you during a mass phase by reducing total fat accumulation by “deactivating” certain fat-forming enzymes.

They also help in enhancing recovery and improving blood flow to your muscles, which can lead to faster recovery and even stronger joints. Many people who use these supplements report that their joints feel much better since they’ve started using them. And most importantly, they reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. FFAs are incredibly good for your cardiovascular system and overall health. And fitness is about health, after all: the healthier you are, the more you’ll be able to lift. Seriously, FFAs come with numerous health benefits and they’re dirt cheap, so there isn’t a single reason why you shouldn’t be using them.
