Olimp Gold Omega-3 Sport Edition is a high-quality supplement providing unsaturated fatty acids DHA and EPA. The composition of the product has been enriched in vitamin E, which support the effectiveness of omega-3 fatty acids in the organism.
Docosahexaenoic acid demonstrates especially vital role in the work of the nervous system. Up to 60% of the structural composition of cerebral cortex is composed of DHA. As the component of lipid membranes of cells creating brain, it conditions proper conduction responsible for processing stimuli, coordination and regulation of the work of the whole body.
Moreover, DHA constitutes a precursor, essential for the synthesis of two incredibly essential neurotransmitters – serotonin and dopamine. The first one is responsible for regulating basic needs of the organism, such as sleep, appetite or sexual behaviors. It is also responsible for regulating body temperature and disorders in the synthesis of serotonin are the cause of mental disorders, especially depression. Dopamine, in turn, is mainly responsible for coordinating human musculoskeletal system (its deficit is the main pathogenesis factor of Parkinson’s disease). It also regulates emotional behaviors and influences the synthesis of other hormones. It is commonly called a “pleasure transmitter” and its synthesis is stimulated, among others, by cocaine.
Eicosapentaenoic acid in the human organism is mainly responsible for the synthesis of eicosanoids. These are tissue hormones, regulating organism’s homeostasis.
Regulation of smooth muscle spasms and inflammations
The most important eicosanoids conditioning the presence of EPA are prostaglandins. Their main function is regulation of the activity independent of the will of smooth muscles, therefore they influence the work of the respiratory, digestive and circulatory systems, ensuring proper adjustment of organs to currently prevailing environmental conditions. They also belong to mediators of inflammation, having inhibiting influence on its development. In regulating inflammations they also play the role as leukocyte chemotaxis.
Docosahexaenoic acid in regulating psychological behaviors
The correlation between DHA deficiency and emotional development in children is highlighted more and more often. The deficit of docosahexaenoic acid is considered to be one of the main causes of ADHD. Moreover, children, whose diet from the first days of life (by the presence in mother’s milk) is rich in the supply of DHA exhibit higher level of intellectual development in comparison to their peers. In adults, DHA is used in the therapy of bipolar disorders and schizophrenia.
Health of the circulatory system
Eicosapentaenoic acid has the influence on the functioning of the cardiovascular system by means of prostacyclins, of which it is a precursor. They ensure homeostasis (maintaining blood fluidity in vascular bed) in standard conditions by preventing thrombocytes aggregation. They also have diastolic effect on blood vessels and lower blood pressure. In pathological conditions, another group of EPA derivatives, thrombaxanes, is responsible for regulating blood coagulation.
Efficient immune system
Other important eicosanoids derived from eicosapentaenoic acid are leukotrienes. They are responsible for regulating the functions of the immune system. The disorders of their synthesis are one of the main causes of asthma and various allergies. Intermediation generated by leukotrienes is equally essential to maintain proper response from the immune system and the ability to effectively defend from pathogens.
Olimp Gold Omega-3 Sport Edition is a supplement which constitutes a complex solution to omega-3 acids deficiency in a diet.

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.
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
Omega-3 (n-3) group of unsaturated fatty acids: short-chain (linolenic acid, belongs to the EFAs [essential fatty acids]) and long-chain (eicosapentaenoic acid [EPA] and docosahexaenoic acid [DHA]). The number 3 indicates That the last double bond in the carbon chain is the third from the end of carbon. Acids from the group of Omega-3 are essential components of cell membranes, they are biological precursors and activators of eicosanoids. EFAs quite abundantly supplied in food, and it can be supplied with food. EPA and DHA (oils, fats marine fish) are Supplied by foods of sea origin (sea fish and seafood). They are developed also in the human body as a result of processes of denaturation and elongation of alpha-linolenic acid , but in an amount insufficient for the full needs of the organism. Therefore,they should be supplied from the outside. With the use of so-called. western diet, supplementation of fatty acids Omega 3 is more desirable (than Omega 6).
Supplementation of fatty acids of Omega 3 is recommended for people who are physically active in order to supplement and to prevent deficiencies in body as well as due to their impact on the body composition and aerobic capacity, and tissue regeneration. In addition, it regulates the systems: circulatory (including heart), nervous, respiratory and locomotor. Formulations containing EPA and DHA are a complement to an effort diet, regardless of the degree of training and exercising.
Dietary fatty acids Omega 3, in principle, are produced in the form of capsules in combination with vitamin E as an antioxidant, available for purchase at: www.muscle-zone.pl
Dosage usually we recommended supplements in sports: depending on the supply of diet and intake of Omega 6 it is 1 - 5 g of EPA and DHA / 24 h.
Vitamin E (tocopherol) is a fat soluble. Due to its antioxidant action, it is a protection of other vitamins (e.g. Vitamins A). Protects the body against free radicals, strengthens the walls of blood vessels and its capacity, causing their dilation and dissolution of blood clots. With the reduction of coagulation, it is used as an antiatherogenic medicine, it allows for the proper course of pregnancy. In cooperation with selenium it slows the ageing process of cells, strengthening connective tissue. In the food it is present in whole-grain bread, sprout and grains, vegetable oils (soybean, sunflower), soya beans and sunflower seeds, vegetable fat and hen egg yolks. Also it is used in sports medicine in the form of nutrients and supplements.
Vitamin E deficiency reduces building of red blood cells, results in changes in muscle and disorders of pregnancies.
Dosage: for children, 0.5 mg / 1 kg of weight; for adults 10-30 mg per day.
D-alpha-tocopherol – a natural form of vitamin E which is indicated as the most optimum for supplementation. It helps correct effectively deficiencies of this compound which is extremely crucial for the human body.
Vitamin E is a very important bioactive substance found in many tissues and required for normal functioning of the body. Its deficiencies may be manifested by impaired cognitive abilities and vision, muscle weakness and infertility. It is involved in erythropoiesis and that is why its low intake may lead to anaemia.
In addition, vitamin E has an important role as an antioxidant in the human body. It has the ability to reduce the amount of free radicals, thereby decreasing negative oxidative stress.
During supplementation with d-alpha-tocopherol, we should remember that it belongs to fat-soluble compounds, along with vitamin A, D and K. Because of that, supplements with vitamin E should be taken with a fat-containing meal.
