Krill oil is rich in valuable omega-3, all enclosed in one capsule. We often hear that it's worth to eat fish, precisely because they contain omega-3. On the other hand, there are also the news about the water pollution that makes fish food worthless, almost malicious. Antarctic krill live in only the cleanest waters, so the oil obtained from this crustacean is an ideal way to ensure the optimal dose of essential fatty acids that is omega-3. it's worth to take between 1 to 3 capsules per day, with a meal.
Antarctic krill oil – a top-quality source of omega 3 acids, and eicosapentaenoic and docosahexaenoic acid which may be involved directly in metabolic pathways in the human body. This makes the krill oil a better source of omega 3 than plant sources, such as flax oil. In addition, krill oil is indicated to be one of the least polluted animal sources of EFAs and has a perfect ratio of omega 3 to omega 6.
Adequate intake of essential unsaturated fatty acids is crucial to the maintenance of cardiovascular health. It can optimise the lipid profile and helps maintain normal cholesterol levels and HDL-LDL ratio. Supplementation with omega 3 acids aids also in lowering triacylglycerol levels.
Furthermore, adequate dietary intake of EFAs promotes a healthy nervous system and delays ageing of the body. Omega 3 acids are also believed to be capable of regulating blood pressure and show anti-inflammatory activity.
Krill oil is characterised also by the content of other health-promoting substances, such as phospholipids, choline and astaxanthin. This enhances the effectiveness of this product and places it at the forefront of supplements which help maintain the body’s optimal health.
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) - 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
Astaxanthin - currently it is considered the strongest antioxidant (according to the research, it is much stronger than vitamin C or beta-carotene), which has a detoxicating effect on the organism. This substance is therefore incredibly important in the process of elimination of free radicals and detoxification.
As a compound from the group of carotenoids, it conditions the process of proper vision, however, it is not used as a building block of retinol (derivative of vitamin A) and it may fulfill its functions in the whole organism, where it is also transported. It was proven that astaxanthin helps to inhibit the creation of pathological lesions in the eye retina, therefore introducing it do a diet may even cause vision improvement.
Astaxanthin also decreases blood pressure, thanks to which the risk of developing circulatory system disorders is lower. Additionally, it demonstrates protective effect on neurons, which may be important in the future in the Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s disease.
This carotenoid is also friendly to diabetics, as thanks to antioxidant properties it inhibits oxidation of LDL cholesterol and makes pancreatic cells more sensitive to insulin.
