Description
  • The purest DHA from fish oil concentrate
  • Strongly fruity taste free from the aftertaste of fish
  • Delicious chewing gums in the shape of fish
  • Suitable for children and adults
  • Beneficial for brain health
  • Supports the immune system

NOW® Kids Chewable DHA is a dietary supplement composed of omega-3 fatty acids with a predominance of DHA, obtained from the purest fish oil, free from toxins and heavy metals. The preparation has been developed with children in mind - it is available in the form of chewable tablets in the shape of small fish, has a juicy fruity taste, free from the aftertaste and smell of fish.

DHA, or docosahexaenoic acid, is one of the most famous representatives of the omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid family. It is essential for the proper functioning of the human body and is found in large amounts in the brain, heart and retina of the eye. Its proper supply should be taken care of at every stage of life, including prenatal and early childhood.

Brain health
DHA is one of the key building blocks of the central nervous system. It accumulates especially in the frontal and prefrontal lobes of the brain. It is these areas that are responsible for higher mental activities, i.e. thinking, planning, the ability to concentrate, social skills, and emotional control. Research shows that the right amount of DHA in the diet of children has a positive effect on their intellectual and emotional development.

DHA is also an important component of neurons' cell membranes, determining their physical properties, such as stability, fluidity and permeability. It has also been observed that DHA has a beneficial effect on the formation of these elements of nerve cells (including neuronal projections and dendritic spines) that are responsible for neuroplasticity of the brain.

Strengthening immunity
Enriching the diet with omega-3 fatty acids may contribute to reducing the susceptibility to colds and infections and lowering the risk of autoimmune diseases. Studies have shown that DHA regulates the activity of T and B lymphocytes and NK cells. In addition, it has a high anti-inflammatory potential.

Vision Support
Another place where DHA accumulates in the body is the retina of the eye. It has been proven that this compound plays an important role in the development and functioning of the organ of vision. It is necessary for the proper course of the maturation process of photosensitive cells.

In summary, NOW® Kids Chewable DHA is an appropriate dose of DHA for children, given in an attractive form. The preparation comprehensively supports the development of a child, promotes brain health, supports proper vision and strengthens immunity.

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".

 


 

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


 

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
