STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION
The family of Omega-3 fatty acids form part of the structure of membranes of every cell in the body and are essential for normal cell growth. EPA and DHA are direct precursors of a wide range of biologically important lipid mediators used in the support of virtually all biological functions, including those of the cardiovascular, reproductive, immune, and nervous systems. EPA is beneficial for circulation and makes more efficient use of myocardial oxygen for heart health maintenance. As an Omega-3 fatty acid, EPA supports a healthy vascular system.
DHA is the most prevalent fatty acid of rod photoreceptor disc membranes and synaptic terminals, and is necessary for proper excitable membrane functions and fluidity. In addition, higher concentrations of DHA are correlated with healthy C-reactive protein levels in granulocytes, promoting healthy effects of these cells on tissue.
While the human body can enzymatically elongate and desaturate the parent Omega-3 a-Linolenic Acid into EPA and, to a lesser extent, DHA, this process may be limited. American diets may not include ample amounts of fish, a rich source of Omega-3s. PhysioLogics' EPA 180 mg / DHA 120 mg provides a dietary supplement for individuals who want to receive a daily supply of Omega-3 fatty acids.
HOW CLIENTS MAY BENEFIT
Provides essential components of cell membranes for normal cell growth
Supports circulation for heart health
Promotes cerebral and central nervous system health and maintenance
The Physician's Health Study followed apparently healthy men for up to 17 years. Analysis of the blood indicated that higher levels of Omega-3 fatty acids were found in those with a healthier cardiovascular system and quality of life. Researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health followed over 5,100 women for up to 16 years and found that diets with a higher consumption of Omega-3 fatty acids were associated with heart health maintenance and quality of life. A study assessing the cognitive abilities of over 200 men and women aged 63-74 over a four year period showed higher level of Omega-3 fatty acids in erythrocyte membranes obtained from normal diet were associated with maintenance of cognitive function in the elderly.
Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids are nutrients that may be lacking in most American diets. Consumption of Omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. FDA evaluated the data and determined that, although there is scientific evidence supporting the claim, the evidence is not conclusive. Supplementing your clients' nutrition with PhysioLogics' EPA 180 mg / DHA 120 mg will support their cardiovascular, nervous, and circulatory systems, as well as overall health.
PhysioLogics' EPA/DHA delivers natural fish oil, which contains the long-chain polyunsaturated Omega-3 fatty acids. Each softgel provides 300 mg of Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) to support circulatory and metabolic health.
