Omega-3 Omega-3

FA Omega-3 is a supplement with a high content of omega-3 fatty acids : EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). These fats oxidise quickly. Because of that, the ingredients have been selected carefully to avoid their toxicity and represent the highest quality in the market.

Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) is found in great amounts in high-quality fish, i.e. salmon, mackerel and sardines. It relieves inflammations and is one of the most important formulas used in in treating depression, mood and psychosomatic disorders.

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) – the best absorbable omega-3 fatty acid. It has an important role in the development of cognitive functions, improves concentration and memory in children, adults and the elderly. It helps to learn faster and is effective in fighting hypertension.

Omega-3 fatty acids  are essential fatty acids (EFAs) which have a variety of functions in our body. The brain needs them (especially DHA) mainly for proper functioning: improving memory, concentration and logic thinking. Adequately high doses of DHA helps inhibit the development of dementia in the elderly and improve all cognitive and executive functions.

Anti - inflammatory properties
When talking about omega-3 fatty acids, we should not forget about omega-6 acids. The last ones contribute to releasing proinflammatory hormones, that is why the proper ratio of these fatty acids is so important. EPA and DHA make the opposite and show a strong anti-inflamatory action, inhibiting the release of proinflammatory hormones in our body. The recommended ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids is 4:1 or 5:1 whereas the ratio in the diet of most people is 20:1 and more.

Omega-3 for pregnant women
EPA and DHA has many health benefits. Apart from their anti-inflamatory action, they are involved in building cell membranes. Pregnant women should especially provide adequate amounts of these fatty acids, because they are critical to normal child brain development and form the eye retina (omega-3 deficiency in pregnancy can cause a greater tendency for a child to have visual impairments).

Health-promoting properties of omega-3 

Studies have shown a number of advantages of healthy serum omega-3 levels. First of all, the consumption of EPA and DHA improves the condition of the heart, regulates its function and prevents heart attacks. They help to regulate the lipid profile by decreasing blood triglyceride levels as well as increase the overall immunity of the body and that is why they are recommended for colds.Omega-3 are extremely important in disease entities with particularly severe inflammations, e.g. autoimmune diseases or RA – rheumatoid arthritis.

Omega-3 supplementation in athletes
Undoubtedly, EPA and DHA are highly significant in the athlete’s supplementation. Studies show that increased omega-3 intake improves insulin sensivity and consequently contributes to increased synthesis of muscle fibres and decreased blood glucose concentration. Anti-inflammory properties help an athlete to regenerate quickly, hereby reducing the effects of microtraumas formed during training sessions.

To sum up, FA Omega-3 is a careful selection of high-quality omega-3 fatty acids whose supplementation leads to the improvement of brain function, reduction of inflammations and protection of the heart and cardiovascular system. A high content of EPA and DHA perfectly corrects deficiencies due to a poorly balanced diet, consequently improving our health.

Energy value

Information

The energy value is determined by the chemical composition of the food product, by means of the so-called. physiological equivalents energy., determining the value of metabolic energy contained in 1 g of the component. Most commonly used is the equivalent of Atwater: protein 4 kcal/g for carbohydrates 4kcal/g, and for fat 9kcal/g.


 

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)


 

Carbohydrates

Information

Carbohydrates are an essential nutrient. They are divided into: simple sugars (monosaccharides), disaccharides and polysaccharides. In terms of the human bioavailability of carbohydrates is divided into: digestabe, those which are digested in the gastrointestinal tract by transferring energy to the tissues or cells (such as starch, fructose) and indigestable, resistant to digestive enzymes (e.g. cellulose) . Affects blood glucose levels (glycemic index) and the metabolism of insulin (insulin index). The greatest demand for carbohydrates occurs before physical activity or in the middle of it, because they increase the exercise capacity, consumed after exercise provide regeneration. In the sports diet the absorption rate it is important of carbohydrates and reactions of the organism. Available in mono-preparation supplements and part of the energetic supplements, creatine stacks, nitrogen boosters.
Dosage: according to the statistics of the Institute of Food and Nutrition, carbohydrates should comprise about 50% of daily energy intake. In some diets, used
residual carbohydrate consumption, not exceeding 30g / 24h.


 

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.


 

EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid)

Information

EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) – what is it?

EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) is a long-chain, polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acid. The chain of the fatty acid consists of 20 carbon molecules, and the first bound out of five double bounds is located at the third carbon from the omega end, which is characteristic for omega-3 acids. It is present in large quantities in fish oils, where it is accompanied by docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).

EPA is a precursor to prostaglandins and other eicosanoids, which contributes to the reduction in inflammations. It is involved in inhibition of platelets aggregation. It contributes also to the reduction in triglycerides level in blood. EPA block the activity of an enzyme, phospholipase A2, present on cell membranes, which under the influence of stressors can release polyunsaturated fatty acid (from the group of eicosanoids) into the glycerol skeleton. To some extent, EPA can be also converted into 22-carbon DHA. The both acids have positive impact on the condition of the nervous system and cardiovascular health.

Eicosapentaenoic acid contained in dietary supplements with omega-3, which are available in the offer of muscle-zone.pl

DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid)

Information

DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) - acid of omega-3 family, unsaturated fatty acids with the last double bond in the chain located on the third carbon atom from the end. Synthesized in the human body to eicosapentaenoic acid, or retrieved from foods of marine origin (fish, particularly salmon). In the medicine it is indicated for the treatment of depression, Alzheimer's ADHD. There has been its positive impact on the insulin metabolism noted as well as on endocrine and cardiovascular systems. When used in appropriate doses, it has a beneficial effect on the composition and appearance of the body. In the the supplementation it is part of formulas containing fish oil, which fill in the gaps of unsaturated fatty acids Omega 3, recommended for people with different physical activity.
Dosage: 200-2000 mg per day
