MZ Omega-3 is a dietary supplement containing fish oil, which is a source of polyunsaturated fatty acids from the omega-3 family – EPA and DHA. Fatty acids from the omega-3 family are an indispensable element of a balanced diet and they show a range of pro-health properties for the body.

Omega-3 fatty acids (ω-3) are polyunsaturated fatty acids, of which the most important for human health are long-chain acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Along with omega-6 fatty acids they are essential unsaturated fatty acids (EFA). Since they cannot be synthesized by the human body, they must be supplied with a diet. The main food source for these valuable compounds is fat obtained from marine fish.

Super omega3. I always take a large package of 480 tabs, thanks to which I can afford omega3 supplementation in large doses, which translates into great pro-health effects. There are no such large packages anywhere else

The mechanism of action of omega-3 acids
After entering the gastrointestinal tract and reaching the blood, omega-3 acids are then picked up by target cells and (after appropriate transformations) are incorporated into their cell membranes, where they are a substrate for the synthesis of biologically active compounds – eicosanoids.

Eicosanoids are a group of tissue hormones, which include prostaglandins, prostacyclins, and thromboxanes. These compounds regulate a number of biochemical processes in the body. Depending on the precursor – omega-3 or omega-6 fatty acids, different eicosanoids with diverse properties are formed. Eicosanoids formed from ω-3 have a positive effect on the body, anti-inflammatory properties and protect against the adverse effects of ω-6 eicosanoids (which includes, among others, arachidonic acid) that are considered to be pro-inflammatory compounds.

Another, less known mechanism of action of ω-3 fatty acids is the effect on the activity of nuclear PPARs (peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors), which regulate the expression of specific genes. It is believed that this mechanism may be responsible for, among others, the antiarrhythmic effect of omega-3.

Protection of the cardiovascular system
Numerous epidemiological studies have shown that a diet rich in marine fish is an important element preventing the development of heart and vascular diseases. Eicosanoids show a regulatory effect on the functioning of the cardiovascular system. Eicosanoids formed from omega-3 acids have been proven to lower the level of blood triglycerides, to reduce blood pressure and to have anticoagulant properties. This results in anti-atherosclerotic effects and inhibition of the development of ischemic heart disease.

An indispensable element for the proper functioning of the brain
Docosahexaenoic acid is particularly important for the proper functioning of the nervous system. According to estimates, DHA accounts for almost 40% of all fatty acids in the gray matter of the brain. The deficiency of ω-3 fatty acids has been correlated with accelerated processes of aging of the brain, which may be manifested by memory impairment, deterioration of cognitive functions and thought processes. Decreased DHA levels are often found in the course of dementia.

It is observed that a diet rich in DHA increases BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor). It is a protein secreted by neurons, which is classified to nerve growth factors and is closely related to neuroplasticity processes, information processing, and cognitive functions.

The significance of the balanced omega-3 to omega-6 ratio
It has been shown that excessive supply of omega-6 acids with diet inhibits the transformation of omega-3 fatty acids. This results from ω-3 and ω-6 competing for the same enzymes transforming them into biologically active compounds. It is believed that a healthy diet should maintain a 4:1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3, while in a usual, "western" diet the ratio can reach even 30:1.

In summary, MZ Omega-3 is a dietary supplement containing the optimal amount of EPA and DHA, which are an essential element of a healthy diet. The product is recommended especially for people whose diet does not abound in marine fish, to prevent diseases of the cardiovascular system, to support the proper functioning of the brain, immune system and to fight inflammation.

There is an error in the product ingredients list on the product label. The food supplement contains 700 mg of other fatty acids (instead of 'other omega-3 fatty acids' as on the label).
