Great Healthworks, Inc, Makers of Omega XL, Report Newly Published Study on Their Patented Oil: PCSO-524® Delivers Relief for Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness

Hollywood, FL (PRWEB) May 27, 2013

In a recent study published in the Open Access Journal of Sports Medicine, researchers followed the patterns of DOMS-related discomfort experienced by 32 non-professional distance runners over an 11-week period. In a single blind test, half of the study’s participants were given the commercial form of PCSO-524®, Omega XL®, with the other half receiving olive oil control capsules. Researchers discovered that participants taking Omega XL reported less soreness and pain during the hours and days immediately following intense 30 km training runs. The pain reducing effect of Omega XL was greatest in lesser-trained runners. In addition, the study found that there was a “slight but significant” reduction in creatine kinase (CK) concentration in individuals taking Omega XL. High levels of CK in the blood stream indicate injury or stress to muscle tissue and are indicative of conditions leading to sensations of pain. A reduction in CK concentration typically signals the presence of less discomfort, further supporting Omega XL’s positive impact on the reduction in pain sensation.

Athletes of all levels can experience intense muscle pain, soreness or stiffness after training beyond their normal limits. Delayed onset muscle soreness is typically most severe within one to three days after exercise. While DOMS is relatively common, little is known about the underlying physical mechanism that causes the pain. Because non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication is commonly used for treatment, researchers speculate that inflammation triggered by muscular trauma plays a likely role.

Additional research is required to further understand the effectiveness of Omega XL in offsetting DOMS in runners. However, the initial results of this study suggest significant implications for athletes and exercisers of all levels seeking to reduce the impact of delayed onset muscle soreness. By reducing muscle pain and stiffness experienced after long training sessions, marine oil dietary supplementation through Omega XL may positively impact an athlete’s ability to get back to training sooner.

Marine oil dietary supplements have a long history of published clinical studies that demonstrate reduced joint pain associated with inflammation and inflammatory conditions. Omega XL is one of only two Omega 3 supplements sold in the world that contains the patented stabilized marine lipid extract PCSO-524™ derived only from the New Zealand green-lipped mussel, with over 30 healthy fatty acids including DHA and EPA. Sold in other parts of the world under its sister brand name Lyprinol, Omega XL is manufactured exclusively by Great HealthWorks Inc., and is the most widely available omega-3 fish oil supplement containing the potent PCSO-524™ marine lipid extract.
