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.

Mixed Fatty Acids is a complex of fatty acids which are an integral part of the diet without regardless of physical and mental activity. It is used for the decomposition of fatty acids: saturated (monounsaturated, polyunsaturated) or unsaturated. Saturated fatty acids is a fatty acid group having different carbon chain lengths, in which, except for the carboxyl group, each of the carbon atoms is linked by a single bond. May adversely affect the lipid profile, so they can be used in limited quantities. Unsaturated fatty acids are essential fatty acids, these include acids of Omega 3 (both short- and long-chain unsaturated fatty acids) and Omega 6 (long-chain unsaturated fatty acids). Number 3 (with the name Omega) informes that the last double bond in the carbon chain is the third from the end of the carbon atom. Acids of Omega 3 are an essential components of cell membranes, are precursors and biological activators of eicosanoids and white matter of the brain. Number 6 in the name Omega indicates that the last bond in the carbon chain is placed at the sixth carbon from the end. They are an important component of cell membranes and precursors of prostaglandins. Consumption of unsaturated fatty acids omega-6 should be proportional to the consumption of Omega 3 in a ratio of 1: 1 to 6: 1.

What is Lactobacillus acidophilus?
Lactobacillus acidophilus is a strain of rod-shaped bacteria with the ability to produce lactic acid which is beneficial to our health. These bacteria reside mainly in the intestinal mucosa. Like other probiotic strains, it can easily survive adverse conditions prevailing in specific sections of the digestive tract. As a result, it passes through the small intestine after oral administration and adheres to epithelial cells, forming small colonies. What is more, the strain was detected in the vagina, cervix and urethra. Owing to that, they can combat numerous diseases and maintain a healthy digestive and genitourinary system by competing with pathogenic microorganisms.
Apart from lactic acid production, the bacteria strain can synthesise also other organic acids which have the ability to inhibit the adhesion and proliferation of such pathogens as Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella, Candida albicans, Shigella, Clostridium, Listeria and Helicobacter. By maintaining the normal pH in the intestines, it promotes the digestion of food and absorption of micro- and macronutrients.
It has been reported that this strain is capable of synthesising vitamin K. Consequently, it supports proper blood clotting and has a positive impact on bone structure.
By synthesising lactase, it can also promote lactose digestion, whereby treating unpleasant digestive ailments after consuming dairy products. It uses many bacteriocins for fighting pathogens, such as acidolin, acidophilin, lactobacillin, lactocin and many more.
