The supplement is characterised by the highest quality of its composition. Rival products offen contain small amounts of omega-3 acids in 1 g of fish oil. We offer you the highest concentration of DHA and EPA acids – 900 mg per serving (1 capsule).
The common problem among supplements providing fish fatty acids is their polluted composition, especially with heavy metals coming from pollution in seas and oceans. This is why the supplement manufacturer decided to obtain the oil from Alaska Pollock. Moreover, to keep maximally pure composition, the oil underwent molecular destilation which got rid of any pollution without loss to the quality of the product.
Mechanism of action of DHA and EPA acids
Unsaturated omega-3 fatty acids contained in the product are characterised by multidirectional action because of the unique mechanism of their metabolism. They can be the part of the lipid bilayers which surround each cell of the body system. They compete over a place with proinflammatory omega-6 fatty acids consumed in excessive quantities by many people. The perfect relationship between omega-3 and omega-6 acids is 1:1, while in a diet of an average European it is around 1:30. Moreover, omega-3 acids are able to modify expression of particular genes.
The main advantage of the omega acids DHA and EPA, responsible for their multidirectional effects, is the ability to reduce inflammations. What is important, the effects result from many mechanisms. One of them is reduction in proinflammatory action of omega-6 acids, consumed in excessive quantities, resulting from inhibiting the activity of C-reactive protein. Moreover, DHA and EPA reduce the amount of interleukin 2, which stimulates the development of cytotoxic lymphocytes T and NK cells. Omega-3 acids reduce also gene expression of proinflammatory cytokine TNF-α, which is associated with development of autoimmune diseases and cancers.
Supplementation with fish oil contributes to the reduction in inflammations, also due to reduction in enzymes involved in inflammation development. They also act here at the stage of protein gene expression, which is why they inhibit the synthesis of such compounds as induced cyclooxygenase and lipooxygenase. Moreover, eicosapentaenoic and docosahexaenoic acids are precursors for the production of protectins and resolvins. These compounds have specific receptors on cell membranes which suppress inflammations.
The proper nerve conduction
A characteristic of nerve cells is the presence of large amounts of DHA in cell membranes. The acid is responsible for liquidity essential for their proper functioning. Depolarisation of neuron cell membranes is the basic mechanism of nerve conduction, which is why their efficiency determines the proper functioning of the whole system. Omega-3 acid deficiencies in diet result in decline in mental capacity, impaired perception of stimuli and motor coordination. Supplementation with fish oil is also an effective form of prevention of neurodegenerative diseases. Moreover, it has been demonstrated that children whose diets from the beginning included bigger amounts of DHA and EPA acids achieved better results in IQ tests.
Healthy cardiovascular system
Omega-3 acids have similar influence on cardiomyocytes, whose unique characteristic is the ability to self-stimulation and impulse conduction, which are the only mechanism determining heart functions. In this way, supplementation with DHA and EPA prevents cardiac arrhythmia and contraction disorders whose main symptom is hypertension. Studies demonstrate important corelation between omega-3 acid supplementation and smaller risk of coronary artery disease.
Optimisation of lipid profile
Fish oil can also balance the lipid profile. The supplementation has such beneficial influence on the triglycerides level, that it is often recommended instead traditional pharmacological measures. Moreover, omega-3 acids contribute to the increase in the concentration of HDL lipoprotein (the so called “good” cholesterol) and positively affects the relationship between HDL and LDL levels, which is one of the main indicators of the condition of the cardiovascular system.
Mental disorders treatment
The supplementation with eicosapentaenoic and docosahexaenoic acids is also effective in the treatment of depression, including postnatal depression. DHA acid can also reduce symptoms of schizophrenic disorder. Moreover, supplementation with fish oil is indicated to be an effective measure in the treatment of bipolar disorder and ADHD in children.
To sum it all up, EPA and DHA acids are essential for the proper functioning of all cells of the human body system, and increasing their supply bring many benefits both for the general improvement in the body system functions and for the prevention of various disorders.
Optimal Fish Oil is a dietary supplement which provides the best bioavailable forms of eicosapentaenoic and docosahexaenoic acids of natural origin, without any risk of burdening the body system with heavy metals, pesticides and any pollution characteristic for aquatic organisms.
In case of a diet rich in omega-6 fatty acids, it is worth to increase the supplement dose up to 5 capsules a day, which will provide the amount of 5 g of pure omega-3 acids.
People with high cholesterol level should be particularly careful during supplementation with DHA and EPA acids. In such case, it is recommended to increase the dose gradually and check regularly on the lipid profile.

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 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 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".
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.
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
