Calories

Information

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

Information

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.


 

Saturated fatty acids

Information

Saturated fatty acids are a group of fatty acid having different carbon chain lengths, in which except for the carboxyl group, each of the carbon atoms is linked by a single bond. Saturated fatty acids are commonly known as bad fat, which might adversely affect the cholesterol level, in particular by the action of acids: lauric, myristic, palmitic, and therefore their consumption should be reduced. Research carried out in this matter do not confirm entirely the prevailing beliefs.


 

Gamma-linolenic acid

Information

Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA - unsaturated fatty acid from the Omega 6 group, present in plant foods and is synthesized within the human body from linoleic acid. Participates in the synthesis of eicosanoids. Increases immunity. GLA deficiency impairs the skin, hair and nails condition. It is an additional component of supplements containing essential fatty acids (EFAs) complemented with vitamin E, which has antioxidant properties, available at www.muscle-zone.pl
Dosage: the proportions of the ratio between Omega 3 and Omega 6 in the ratio of 1: 1 to 1: 5 enables flexible dosing.

 

Borage oil

Information

Borage oil extracted from the seeds Boraginis Oleum, it is a source of fatty acid GLA (gamma-linolenic), and fatty acids from the Omega 6 (e.g.. Erucic, linoleic, stearic), anti-inflammatory properties. Positive effect on the circulatory system. It stabilizes blood cholesterol levels. Due to the improving condition of skin, hair and nails used in the cosmetic industry. Part of the preparations used in hyperlipidemia and nutrient concentrates available at www.muscle-zone.pl

Sesame seed extract

Information

Sesame seed extract - demonstrates wide pro-health properties due to the richness of biologically active ingredients contained in sesame seeds. They constitute a perfect source of B-group vitamins, vitamin A and E, provide folic acid and contain a range of minerals. Apart from this, they constitute a perfect source of dietary fiber, facilitating peristalsis. As for the amino acid profile of sesame, tryptophan may be distinguished, an amino acid promoting proper synthesis of melatonin.

Sesame seed extract is commonly used in the prophylaxis of cardiovascular system diseases. It is attributed positive influence on blood coagulation and it may also optimize lipid profile. According to some sources, it is conducive to maintaining low blood pressure values.

The compounds contained in sesame seeds are also attributed antioxidant effect, due to which it allows to fight with the excess of harmful free radicals in the organism. This is probably the reason for anticarcinogenic properties of sesame, reported by some people.
