Recently, all the buzz in the muscle building community has been about essential fatty acids. They've been scientifically shown to do a whole bunch of good things, including helping to prevent muscle degeneration, block the storage of fat, and act as an anti-inflammatory.

Omega-3 fatty acids, which are the most common portion of EFA supplements, can even help in cholesterol reduction. So far, studies have shown that EFA's are good for just about every application, including general health, muscle building, and fat loss.

EFA's, which are typically either fish or flax oils, come in either capsules or liquid form. Initially, capsules may appear to be the more cost-effective method, but consider that it takes about 10 pills to equal one teaspoon of the liquid EFA. For that reason, the top EFA supplement available has to be PFO Pure Fish Oil.

If you want to go for the pill approach - and I reccomend taking several pills a day, if you're serious about your weight training - try either NOW Super Omega 3-6-9 or Labrada EFA Lean Gold.

Simply put, you must give EFA's a try if you're at all interested in improving your general health or muscle building/fat loss regime...
