Supply Side West: Lecture on Arachidonic Acid
Supply Side West, Sports Nutrition Workshop
ARACHIDONIC ACID: OMEGA-6 FOR SPORT
October 10, 2014 (10:05-10:30am)
Looking for an ingredient that supports muscle growth from a completely new angle? Then you are not going to want to miss the lecture I’m giving on Friday, Oct. 10 at Supply Side West, “Arachidonic Acid: Omega-6 For Sport.” Emerging evidence suggests this omega-6 PUFA plays a central role in the process of muscle hypertrophy. We will start by reviewing the evidence, taking special interest in the underlying mechanisms in which ARA acts on this process. We will then examine two placebo-controlled studies on ARA supplementation with exercise, the health effects of higher dietary intake and supplementation, and finally, consider how these new findings might change EFA supplement recommendations in sport.
