Now Foods Red Omega™ Softgels is an innovative product in which the traditional form of omega 3 fatty acids with many health benefits is fortified with coenzyme Q10, responsible for the body’s energy processes, and Red Yeast Rice, a highly valued ingredient in Asian herbal medicine for its cholesterol-lowering effect.

It has been produced carefully to avoid the formation of citrinin which is found often in low-quality products with Red Yeast Rice.

The product contains:
Organic Red Yeast Rice (RYR) – the natural product of the fermentation of rice with Red Yeast (Monascus purpureus). RYR has been used for ages as an agent supporting healthy lipid profile and a valuable additive in Far Eastern cuisine.

RYR contains numerous natural substances which help regulate cholesterol levels, e.g. monacolins, in particular the vital monacolin K, a compound from the group of statins. One of its mechanisms of action consists in the inhibition of HMG-CoA which induces SREBP2 protein responsible for regulation of sterols. As a consequence, there is increased absorption of cholesterol in adipocytes and liver cells which contributes to reducing LDL levels in the cardiovascular system.

Another mechanism of action is an increase in cholesterol absorption through muscle cells which, owing to the presence of statin, may enhance it by 30%, thereby reducing its amount in the cardiac muscle.

Studies indicate that statins may help increase gains in muscle tissue when they are combined with physical activity. The observed increase in hypertrophy is explained by reduced selenoprotein levels caused by decreased amounts of isopentenyl diphosphate.

Omega 3 fatty acids – represented in the product by key compounds from this group –  eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). These acids demonstrate a wide range of health benefits, including:

* A decrease in cholesterol levels by inhibiting CETP which contributes to increasing blood HDL levels and reducing triglyceride levels.

* Support for the nervous system – studies confirm that individuals with increased DHA and EPA levels have been shown to have improved memory, decreased aggression and reduced symptoms of aggression as well as are less prone to stress.

* Better glucose metabolism – studies show an improvement in the body’s response to glucose, decreased insulin resistance and a reduced incidence of diabetes.

* Promotion of weight loss – by activating PPARαs and increasing adiponectin secretion from adipocytes which contributes to higher energy expenditure.

* Enhanced post-workout hypertrophy – it improves fat and glucose metabolism in muscle cells.

* Reduced inflammation – by decreasing levels of interleukin-2, TNF-α and interleukin-1β, largely responsible for formation of inflammation.

Coenzyme Q10 – a molecule found in the mitochondria. It is especially important to the body’s energy processes and supports the cardiovascular system. It shows also neuroprotective properties.

Its main function is to take part in reactions conducted by mitochondria which provide energy for the body. Its proper levels are therefore vital to maintain optimum exercise capacity.

Coenzyme Q10 may increase blood flow in individuals with impaired blood circulation. It serves also as an antioxidant for nitrogen oxide which helps it dilate blood vessels.

Studies show also that it protects from 3-nitroproprionic acid that is a mycotoxin and potent mitochondrial inhibitor. It has been also shown to be more effective in maintaining dopaminergic functions in the case of neurological disorders.

To sum up, Now Foods Red Omega is a product which improves comprehensively the overall condition of the body. However, it will work the best for individuals who want to regulate their cholesterol levels or for whom a standard formula for supplementing omega-3 fatty acids is not sufficient.

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.


 

Fish Oil

Information

Fish oil is a source of long chain saturated fatty acids of the Omega-3 (EPA - eicosapentaenoic acid; DHA - docosahexaenoic acid), which are part of cell membranes and the precursor of eicosanoids, and an activator. When consuming acids Omega 3, it must be balanced with the Omega 6 (using in the range of from 1: 6 to 1: 1). Fats contained in fish oil help to reduce body fat, affect the oxygenation of the body, and the operation of systems: circulatory, respiratory, nervous system and the musculoskeletal system. Available in the form of mono-preparation supplement or as an ingredient of supplements in the category of "health and beauty".

 


 

Red Yeast Rice

Information

Red yeast rice, produced in the fermentation of Monascus purpureus with rice, is a natural supplement which helps maintain normal blood cholesterol levels. It has been used for ages by Asian herbalists due to its unique health benefits.

Adding red rice to a diet may reduce LDL cholesterol levels. It also lowers triglyceride levels and may have therefore an antiatherosclerotic effect.

Red yeast rice has also a positive impact on weight loss. Fermented yeast contributes to a reduction in fat cells whereas fiber from this rice makes us feel satiated and thus helps lose weight.

Furthermore, it contains many valuable micro- and macroelements, i.e. calcium, manganese, phosphorous, magnesium, zinc, potassium and iron. The next advantage is also the presence of B vitamins, vitamin K, affecting blood coagulation, and vitamin E, which prevents the clumping of blood cells and maintains normal permeability of cell membranes.

Red yeast rice has been also shown to support thyroid and liver function, increase the elasticity of blood vessel walls and relieve their tension and stimulate blood flow by dilating blood vessels.

Coenzyme Q10

Information

Coenzyme Q10 (ubiquinone) is a physiological antioxidant, a fat soluble. It takes an active part in the process of creating the energy of ATP. intracorporeal synthesis requires the presence of B vitamins and trace elements, its intensification is caused by heavy training stress or under the influence of stress. Beneficial effects of Coenzyme Q10 has been found on the cardiovascular system, lipid profile (lowering LDL) cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease. Reducing the level of coenzyme Q10 starts when the age of 35, hence must be supplemented by preparations available in cosmetics (external action on the skin), and supplements intensifying the production of energy (for athletes strength) as well as mono-preparation supplement available at www.muscle-zone.pl.
Dosage: 10 - 90 mg / 24h
