Description

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).

  • Support for proper brain and heart function
  • Beneficial effect on cognitive functions
  • Reduction in triglyceride levels
  • Anti-inflammatory properties
  • Supports the immune system
  • Cardiovascular protection
  • Hormonal balance

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.

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).

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
