Super Omega EPA Super Omega EPA

Now Foods Super Omega EPA is a product containing eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), belonging to the group of polyunsaturated fatty acids ω-3. The majority of studies prove their anti-inflammatory properties, positive influence on the cardio-vascular system and the improvement of the functioning of people with psychological disorders.

Omega-3 acids regulate, i.a. the concentration of cytokines, whose increased level in the organism is conducive to developing autoimmunological diseases, arteriosclerosis, chronic inflammations and cancers. They also demonstrate positive influence on the circulatory system, blood supply to the brain and nerve signal transmission. They reduce the risk of heart arrhythmia, stabilize blood pressure and counteract disorders in cholesterol transformations. The results of many studies proved that they play an important role in the development of the nervous system during fetal life and in early childhood.

Polyunsaturated fatty acids from the family omega-3 are not synthesized de novo in the human organism, therefore they need to be provided to the organism with food. The main source of long chain fractions of omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) is fat coming from fish and sea animals. The modern diet does not cover the organism’s needs for proper amounts of healthy fatty acids, therefore it is believed that omega-3 EPA and DHA should be supplemented.

We should remember about the proper proportion between the provided omega-3 acids and omega-6, which should be 1:4 – 1:5. It has been proven that the excess of omega-6 acids in a diet decreases the metabolism of omega-3 fatty acids, which may impair the structural balance of the biologically active compounds synthesized from them. Standard European diet provides too much of omega-6 (plant oils, peanuts) in relation to the supply of omega-3. In order to achieve the proper proportion between these fatty acids, supplementation may turn out to be indispensable and with this aim you may use the product Now Foods Super Omega EPA.

Excessive intake of omega-6 fatty acids is believed to be unfavorable, especially with the low consumption of omega-3 acids. Eicosanoids developed from arachidonic acid (ω-6) have high biological activity even in very small amounts and in excess they stimulate inflammatory, thrombotic and allergic changes as well as cell proliferations (also cancer cells).

Eicosanoids produced from omega-3 fatty acids demonstrate much gentler effect and protect the organism from the undesired effect of the increased activity of eicosanoids which are developed from omega-6 fatty acids. EPA is a precursor to eicosanoids synthesis, exhibiting anti-inflammatory and antithrombotic effects, limiting the processes of tumorigenesis and excessive blood vessels contractibility.

The influence of omega-3 fatty acids on the organism is multidirectional. Providing the organism with their proper amount affects the reduction of the appearance of many civilization diseases, such as obesity, coronary artery disease and coronary heart disease, arteriosclerosis, diabetes type II, cancers, allergies and depression.

Omega-3 fatty acids reduce plasmatic concentration of triglycerides by inhibiting their resynthesis and influence normalization of blood pressure. Their antithrombotic effect stems from the prolonged time of bleeding, which is caused by reducing the vulnerability of platelets to conglomerate because of inhibiting the synthesis of strongly prothrombotic substances. Antiatherosclerotic properties stem from the modification in eicosanoids synthesis, reduction of cholesterol level in plasma and inhibiting platelets adhesion.

It has been proven that low level of omega-3 and high level of omega-6 in phospholipids of skeletal muscle cell membranes is connected to the growth of insulin resistance, which is conducive to the development of diabetes type II. Thanks to inhibiting lipogenesis, the intake of omega-3 fatty acids counteracts obesity.

Anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic effect of omega-3 fatty acids consists in inhibiting excessive immune response and reducing the severity of virus and bacterial inflammation processes. Antidepressant properties stem from their positive influence on the proper functioning of nerve cell membranes of the cerebral cortex. Moreover, omega-3 fatty acids show positive influence on skin and therapeutic activity in the case of skin disorders (e.g. atopic dermatitis).

DHA is an essential structural component of very active nerve tissue. It constitutes even up to 60% of the sum of fatty acids is neuron phospholipids and plays an important role in the development of the nervous system, which takes place during fetal life and in the period of early childhood. Insufficient level of DHA in the diet of pregnant women causes shortening pregnancy time and low birthweight of children. DHA deficit in infants contributes also to lowering visual acuity and learning abilities at older age and in extreme cases it may disturb the process of nerve cell mineralization and conduce the appearance of mental underdevelopment. DHA synthesis dropping with age may influence the functions of the nervous system in elderly people.

Summing up, Now Foods Super Omega EPA is a dietary supplement that will fill quality deficits of every diet, which is poor in polyunsaturated fatty acids omega-3. The preparation is recommended especially to people who eat too little amounts of oily sea fish and those burdened with high risk of the development of popular civilization diseases.

Calories

Information

Calories are the conventional name of the unit expressing the energy value of food, the demand and energy expenditure in human body, which in fact is 1 kilocalorie (1 kcal). 1 kilocalorie is the amount of thermal energy required to heat 1 g of water and 1 degree Celsius. The SI unit of thermal energy is 1 joule (1J), equal to approximately 4,185 kcal.
The energy value is determined by the chemical composition of the food product, by means of the so-called. physiological equivalents. Most often Atwater equivalent is used: ratio for protein 4 kcal / g, for carbohydrates 4kcal / g, and for fat - 9kcal / g.
The energy value carried out with the so-called. "Caloric bomb" is equivalent to the physical energy, amounting to 4.1 kcal per 1 g carbohydrate to 5.65 kcal per 1 g protein, 9.45 kcal per 1 g of fat.
Nutritional value, determines the suitability of a food product for realizing life functions of human, the higher it is - the higher bioavailability and lower quantity for consumption for obtaining the effects.

 

Fat

Information

Fat is an essential nutrient plant and animal organisms. Because of the nutritional value and composition of fats are divided into: saturated (mono-saturated and multi-saturated fatty acids) and unsaturated fatty acids (including essential fatty acids - EFA). The group of lipids include lipids (triacylglycerols, waxes), complex fats (glycolipids, phospholipids), sterols and isoprenoids. Saturated fatty acids is a group of fatty acids having different carbon chain lengths, in which except for the carboxyl group, each of the carbon atoms is bound by a single bond. May adversely affect the lipid profile, so they can be used in limited quantities. Fats are a concentrated source of energy, with different flavours, facilitating the consumption and swallowing of food. They have building functions (part of cell membranes and co-create the white matter of the brain). EFAs are precursors of tissue hormones and biologically active compounds. The unsaturated fatty acids include fatty acids from the group Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9 (the last digit indicates, on which, counting of the end of the chain, there is a double bond in the appropriate carbon chain. The essential fatty acids include: acids, medium-Omega-3 [n-3 ] included in EFAs [essential fatty acids], and long chain (eicosapentaenoic acid [EPA] and docosahexaenoic acid [DHA]) Omega-6 and Omega-9. the number indicates that the last double bond in the carbon chain is on the third from the end carbon atom. The acids from the omega 3 group are essential components of cell membranes, they are precursors of eicosanoids and biological activators. They must be combined with ingestion in suitable proportions of Omega-6 acids.
Dosage: Depending on demand and applied diet. It is generally accepted that fats should constitute 20-30% of the energy (calorie) of meals daily.


 

Protein

Information

Proteins (proteins, polypeptides) is a polymer, of which the basic units (monomers) are amino acids. Protein is composed of carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen and sulfur, and is an elementary nutrient necessary for the proper functioning of the body, an ingredient and a component of tissues, part of the hormones and enzymes and other bioactive substances. Protein determines the proper metabolism and energy processes, as well as all other life processes. The sources of natural proteins are foods of animal origin (including meat, fish, eggs, dairy products) and plant origin (legumes, soy). Deficiency of protein leads to protein malnutrition and a significant weakening of the body. It can lead to anaemia, reduced immunity, muscle relaxation, disorders of the digestive system. Also, overdose protein is undesirable because it can lead to acidification of the body, and interfere with the digestive system and an increase in the concentration of homocysteine ​​in the blood. It is a component of many supplements and nutrients necessary for the proper functioning of the body, both showing a low physical activity, or training the strength and endurance competitions.
Dosage: strength athletes: approx. 1.7 - 2.5 g / 1 kg of body weight; endurance athletes and strength -endurance athletes approx. 1.3 - 2 g / 1 kg of body weight, people with low activity approx. 0.8 - 1.1 g / 1 kg of body weight / 24h. In estimating the amount of protein, you should take into account the intake of other nutrients (carbohydrates and fats)


 

Fish Oil

Information

Fish oil is a source of long chain saturated fatty acids of the Omega-3 (EPA - eicosapentaenoic acid; DHA - docosahexaenoic acid), which are part of cell membranes and the precursor of eicosanoids, and an activator. When consuming acids Omega 3, it must be balanced with the Omega 6 (using in the range of from 1: 6 to 1: 1). Fats contained in fish oil help to reduce body fat, affect the oxygenation of the body, and the operation of systems: circulatory, respiratory, nervous system and the musculoskeletal system. Available in the form of mono-preparation supplement or as an ingredient of supplements in the category of "health and beauty".
