Table 2 Performance measures Visit 1 and Visit 2 for the omega-3 supplementation (N-3 PUFA) and placebo groups. The differences in mean change is given as a percent ± 90 % confidence limits and corresponding inference

From: 21 days of mammalian omega-3 fatty acid supplementation improves aspects of neuromuscular function and performance in male athletes compared to olive oil placebo
