Importantly, the concentrated fish oil , which is a source of omega-3 fatty acids, contained in the product is additionally cleaned of harmful substances - mercury or dioxins, which occur in fish due to the water pollution.
The fish oil contained in the product is the basic source of essential polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), which the human body is unable to synthesise itself, and therefore must acquire them from the outside. These compounds have many functions in the body. They are used by the body to build cell membranes and they take part in the transport of cholesterol.
Moreover, PUFAs influence the synthesis of eicosanoids - substances that act as hormones with a multidirectional action, which also participate in the blood coagulation or immune response of the body.
Omega-3 are polyunsaturated fatty acids of a special importance for the proper functioning of our bodies. This group includes e. g. docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) which are both contained in the product.
Their presence allows to regulate lipid metabolism in the body. These acids contribute to the lowering of triglycerides and the undesirable fraction of VLDL lipoproteins. At the same time, they increase the level of so-called good high-density cholesterol (HDL).
EPA prevents thrombus formation and vasoconstriction because it inhibits the transformation of arachidonic acid and reduces the synthesis of thromboxane. However, docosahexaenoic acid plays a leading role in the normal development of the nervous system, being the basic component of neuronal cell membranes. Particular attention is paid to the important role played by these acids in the prevention of Alzheimer disease, during which their level declines significantly.
To avoid omega-3 acids deficiencies, it is recommended to eat fish about 2-3 times a week, however, it is not possible for everyone to do so, so their supplementation is a very common phenomenon.
The use of supplementation of PUFAs, which the body is unable to produce itself, is applied in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases. Omega-3 fatty acids can help reducing the risk of atherosclerosis, the effects of which are a hazard to health.
An increased intake of DHA and EPA is highly recommended among pregnant women to provide an adequate pool of fatty acids for the growing fetus in order to develop the nervous system or sight properly.
Deficiency of PUFA in food also adversely affects the condition of the skin, contributing to the impairment of actinic keratosis. These disorders may contribute to exacerbation of acne or psoriasis. The EPA and DHA may additionally reduce the production of pro-inflammatory substances during the contact with the harmful fraction of solar UV radiation. By soothing irritations, they also contribute to the acceleration of regenerative processes.
Due to the presence of the fish fat in the product, it is also a source of vitamins A and D. These vitimins affect the calcium economy of the body, which is why they are essential ingredients for its proper development. It is particularly important to provide them with sufficient quantities during the autumn and winter period.
In conclusion, Now Foods DHA-250 is a product of high-quality which contains polyunsaturated fatty acids derived from purified fish oil. The ingredients contained in the supplement support the proper functioning of the nervous and cardiovascular systems, and also affect the lipid profile of the blood.
The supplement should be consumed with fatty food in order to obtain an optimal absorption. The recommended delivery of PUFAs to the body for men and women over 19 years old is respectively 1.6 g and 1.1 g. A daily diet is often unable to provide the recommended amount of these ingredients, and the lipid balance is shifted to less undesirable saturated fatty acids. Therefore, the supplementation of unsaturated fatty acids and reduction of NKT intake is desirable in many cases.
The product should be stored in a dark, dry place, and protected from the sunlight in order to preserve its properties.

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 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.
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".
Omega-3 (n-3) group of unsaturated fatty acids: short-chain (linolenic acid, belongs to the EFAs [essential fatty acids]) and long-chain (eicosapentaenoic acid [EPA] and docosahexaenoic acid [DHA]). The number 3 indicates That the last double bond in the carbon chain is the third from the end of carbon. Acids from the group of Omega-3 are essential components of cell membranes, they are biological precursors and activators of eicosanoids. EFAs quite abundantly supplied in food, and it can be supplied with food. EPA and DHA (oils, fats marine fish) are Supplied by foods of sea origin (sea fish and seafood). They are developed also in the human body as a result of processes of denaturation and elongation of alpha-linolenic acid , but in an amount insufficient for the full needs of the organism. Therefore,they should be supplied from the outside. With the use of so-called. western diet, supplementation of fatty acids Omega 3 is more desirable (than Omega 6).
Supplementation of fatty acids of Omega 3 is recommended for people who are physically active in order to supplement and to prevent deficiencies in body as well as due to their impact on the body composition and aerobic capacity, and tissue regeneration. In addition, it regulates the systems: circulatory (including heart), nervous, respiratory and locomotor. Formulations containing EPA and DHA are a complement to an effort diet, regardless of the degree of training and exercising.
Dietary fatty acids Omega 3, in principle, are produced in the form of capsules in combination with vitamin E as an antioxidant, available for purchase at: www.muscle-zone.pl
Dosage usually we recommended supplements in sports: depending on the supply of diet and intake of Omega 6 it is 1 - 5 g of EPA and DHA / 24 h.
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
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.
