Venice, FL (PRWEB) April 22, 2014

In a recent lecture at Sarasota Military Academy, Omega3 Innovations’ co-founder, Bo Martinsen, MD, was determined to excite students about how omega-3 fish oil benefits their health.

“We tend to assume that young people are not interested in healthy eating,” said Martinsen. “But when I give a lecture, it is always inspiring to see the students get interested. They start to understand how their nutrition choices impact their daily performance and future. That is powerful!”

In the lecture, Martinsen discussed the role of omega-3 in proper body and brain functioning, focusing on three main areas of the students’ experience - academics, sports, and eventual military service.

“Many studies indicate that omega-3 relieves stress and trauma, which is important for both sports and the potential military service that many of the Sarasota Military Academy students may participate in one day,” said Martinsen.

In addition, he stressed the importance of omega-3 in facilitating focus and improving the working memory of young adults - important aspects for achieving success in the classroom.

The students’ teacher, Dr. Jessica Patella, said the lessons resonated with the students.

“The students were already telling classmates in other classes how important omega-3s are for the body and brain,” Patella wrote in an email following the lecture.

Martinsen, who has specialized in omega-3 science and preventive medicine for the last three decades, regularly talks to groups around Sarasota County, including the Doctors’ Hospital Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Unit, prostate cancer support groups, the Rotary Club, and Pine View School.
