TREC NUTRITION: SUPER OMEGA-3 120CAPS
Omega-3 fatty acids. SUPER OMEGA-3 contains ocean fish oil that provides essential omega-3 fatty acids. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) contribute to the proper functioning of the heart. The beneficial effect occurs when consuming 250 mg of EPA and DHA per day. Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) contributes to the maintenance of correct vision and the proper functioning of the brain. The beneficial effect occurs when consuming 250 mg of DHA daily. The recommended daily allowance is 4 capsules.
Omega 3 fatty acids, i.e. the most deficient fats in human nutrition
Why is the modern diet vulnerable to omega 3 deficiency?
The sudden drop in the consumption of omega-3 fatty acids is due to changes in food preferences that have occurred in recent decades. The liking for highly processed foods, dripping with trans fats, and a significant reduction in fish consumption are the main causes of omega 3 deficiency in the daily diet.
The main fatty acids from the omega 3 family are: ALA, EPA and DHA. ALA is present in high concentration in linseed oil, in smaller amounts in soybean oil, walnuts and almonds. EPA and DHA are found in fish and marine animals. Their high concentration is mainly characterized by fatty species such as herring, sardines, salmon, mackerel, tuna, crustaceans. Interestingly, wild fish have a higher concentration of omega 3 compared to farmed fish.
If you want to supplement omega-3 fatty acids, it is best to reach for a preparation containing only this class of fatty acids, such as Super Omega-3. Super Omega-3 provides these deficient fatty acids in the form of easily digestible gel capsules, ensuring high absorption. You consider that your diet is complete and omega-3 fatty acids are unnecessary. However, do you know what the specific functions of these acids are?
Detailed functions of omega 3 fatty acids
Omega 3 fatty acids lower the level of triglycerides, prevent ischemic heart disease and atherosclerosis. Acids from this family counteract platelet aggregation (blood clots), lower blood pressure, have a positive effect on the immune system and joints. Omega 3 acids improve the sensitivity of cells to glucose and insulin (diabetes prevention and treatment). DHA affects the functioning of the brain and is responsible for the proper functioning of the nervous tissue. Many scientific reports clearly indicate that omega 3 fatty acids limit the development of adipose tissue. Produced from omega 3 tissue hormones have anti-coagulant and anti-inflammatory properties, limit excessive contractility of blood vessels and carcinogenesis.
Vitamin E - a faithful friend of omega 3 fatty acids
Omega 3 fatty acids are a class of unsaturated fatty acids included in the Essential Fatty Acids. The fact that they are highly unsaturated (they have a lot of double bonds) makes them susceptible to oxidation processes. This means that they do not like all potentially damaging factors, such as solar radiation, high temperature. In contact with them, healthy omega-3 fatty acids can become a source of pathogenic free radicals. Due to the delicacy of omega 3 acids, each high-class preparation based on them, such as Super Omega 3, is equipped with a dose of antioxidant - vitamin E.
OMEGA 3 - ESSENTIAL UNSATURATED FATTY ACIDS
Omega 3 fatty acids represent not only the group of unsaturated fatty acids, but they are the main representatives of Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs).
EFAs are fats that the human body is unable to synthesize, and they are needed for proper functioning. EFAs, in which omega 3 have a strong position, fulfill a wide range of functions in the prevention and treatment of atherosclerosis, positively regulate the lipid metabolism, e.g. lower cholesterol, prevent blood clots, improve heart function.
Omega-3 acids are essential in the synthesis of prostaglandins - specific tissue hormone substances that regulate various physiological functions, e.g. stimulation and inhibition of smooth muscle contractions, initiation of an inflammatory reaction. Omega 3 is important in the human diet, but as it turns out, daily nutrition contains a very small amount of these valuable sources of fat.
Important specific functions of omega 3, i.e. why they cannot be missing in the daily diet / supplementation
Omega-3 fatty acids perform a number of important functions in maintaining health:
- Omega 3 reduces the level of triglycerides, prevents ischemic heart disease and atherosclerosis.
- Omega 3 prevents the aggregation of platelets (blood clots) and reduces blood pressure.
- Omega 3 has a positive effect on the joints.
- Omega 3 improves the sensitivity of cells to glucose and insulin (diabetes prevention and treatment).
- DHA from the omega 3 family affects the work of the brain, is responsible for the proper functioning of the nervous tissue and the eye retina.
- Omega 3 limits the development of adipose tissue.
