Article Type: Food facts From: Nutrition & Food Science, Volume 41, Issue 4
Modern Olympics have changed dramatically since they were first founded in 1894, and with the 2012 Summer Olympic Programme due to feature 26 sports and a total of 36 disciplines, the ability to gain competitive advantage is now more important than ever. OmegaFlex is a unique combination of glucosamine, omega-3 EPA, omega-6 GLA and oleic acid, formulated to provide such benefits as increasing performance and endurance, health maintenance and the prevention and repair of injuries, making it the optimal supplement for all athletic disciplines. Accidental ingestion of even microgram amounts of a prohibited substance in a nutritional supplement could cause an athlete to fail a dope test, leading to considerable financial losses, as well as a significant detrimental impact on the personal and professional character of the banned athlete, which could then impact on the sporting event itself.
