Opti-EPA Enteric Coated Opti-EPA Enteric Coated

Douglas Opti-EPA Enteric Coated is a dietary supplement that provides high doses of omega-3 essential fatty acids derived from concentrated marine fish oil (anchovies and mackerel) OptiEPA ™.

The product is in the form of soft enteric capsules and is an excellent source of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Thanks to a special enteric coating, an unpleasant "fishy" flavor has been minimized.

Fish oil is obtained mainly by extraction from fish tissue. It usually comes from species such as herring, tuna, and mackerel. Sometimes it is also obtained from the liver of other fish, including cod.

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends eating 1-2 portions of fish per week due to the extensive pro-health activity of omega-3 acids contained in them. Supplementation with omega-3 is therefore particularly recommended for people who do not like fish or rarely eat them. Another reason to ensure an adequate intake of these acids is that the western diet has replaced omega-3 with other fats, such as omega-6. This, in turn, has disturbed the ratio of the acids to one another, leading to an emergence of many lifestyle diseases associated with the Western lifestyle.

Beneficial effect on the heart
Heart disease is one of the most common causes of death in the world. There are many risk factors that seem to be reduced by eating the right amount of fish fatty acids. The benefits of their consumption include, among others, ensuring an adequate level of cholesterol – they can increase the level of HDL ("good cholesterol"). In addition, omega-3 can reduce triglyceride levels by up to 15-30%.

Another encouragement to their use is the fact that already small doses of fish fatty acids help to reduce blood pressure in people suffering from hypertension. They can also prevent the formation of clots that form in the arteries causing their hardening. They also make the already existing clots more stable and safer.

Help in the treatment of some mental disorders
Our brain is almost 60% built of fats, and many of which are the omega-3 fatty acids. They are therefore essential for the proper functioning of the nervous system.

Some studies have shown that people with mental disorders probably have lower levels of omega-3 in their blood. Interestingly, the experiments show that supplementation of fish oil may prevent development or reduce the symptoms of some diseases. An example may be a reduction in the occurrence of psychotic disorders in persons in the group of increased risk. In addition, high doses of omega-3 can help to reduce the symptoms of both schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

Supporting weight loss and waistline
Obesity is defined as a body mass index (BMI) of more than 30. Worldwide, as many as 39% of adults are overweight, while 13% are obese. These numbers are even higher in highly developed countries such as the United States.

Obesity can significantly increase the risk of other diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes or even cancer. Supplementation with fish oils can help to improve body composition and reduce risk factors for heart disease in obese people. What's more, some studies have shown that combining the consumption of omega-3 fatty acids with an appropriate diet and physical activity can promote weight reduction. A meta-analysis of 21 studies confirmed that fish oil supplementation helped to reduce waist circumference and waist-hip proportion.

Ensuring eye health for years
Omega-3 fatty acids play an important role not only in the brain but also as a structural element of human eyes. Studies show that people who do not provide the right amount of omega-3 are more likely to suffer from eye diseases. Sight deteriorates with aging, which can lead to macular degradation. The consumption of fish oils seems to be helpful in the prevention of this disease.

In conclusion, Douglas Opti-EPA Enteric Coated is a natural, high-quality supplement with a versatile effect. It provides polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids – EPA and DHA, which are necessary for the proper functioning of the body, in particular, the cardiovascular and nervous systems.

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.


 

Total fat content

Information

Total fats - total fat introduced into the body in food and dietary supplements containing both saturated fatty acids and unsaturated, including the essential fatty acids. Generally fats, thanks to energy production, allows for greater energy expenditure during exercise, causing post-workout regeneration. It is partially stored in the body. It is assumed that the energy of fat is 9 kcal per 1g. In addition to the production of fatty acids, they are the building blocks of cell membranes and the white matter of the brain. EFAs are precursors of tissue hormones and biologically active compounds. It is especially important to maintain a proper balance between acids of Omega 3 and Omega 6.

EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid)

Information

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)

Information

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
