Foodstate Nutritional Intelligence Omega 3 Formula Capsules 30 Capsules are a high potency fish oil supplement containing DHA and EPA. It is important to get preformed DHA as many conditions and certain foods prevent the body forming DHA from fish oil. Omega 3 fatty acids are beneficial for cardiovascular system health, nervous system development and have a function in the inflammatory response. This product contains no wheat, gluten, starch, lactose, added sugars, flavours and preservatives.
Foodstate Nutritional Intelligence High Dose Fish Oil 30 Capsules
Proprietary name (and dosage form). Foodstate omega 3 formula. Capsules. Composition: Foodstate® Vitamin B12 complex 2.5ug, Foodstate® folic acid 400ug, fish oil 1000mg (350mg EPA and 250mg DHA). Pharmacological classification: Complementary medicine - nutritional supplement. Pharmacological action: DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) are long-chain omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids found in the tissues of marine mammals and oily fish. DHA and EPA compete with arachidonic acid for inclusion in cyclooxygenase and lipoxygenase pathways resulting in an anti-inflammatory effect. DHA and EPA also decrease blood viscosity and increase red blood cell deformability. DHA may reduce cardiovascular mortality risk by several mechanisms including its effects on lipids. DHA seems to reduce serum triglycerides and increase HDL-2 cholesterol. Long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids make up a third of all lipids in brain grey matter. DHA is thought to be important for normal neural function and might play a key role in the structural development of neural and synaptic membranes. DHA and other fatty acids during pregnancy and the postnatal period results in rapid brain tissue development and growth. EPA reduces serum triglyceride concentrations, increases fasting insulin and glucose concentrations and there is some evidence that higher ratios of EPA to arachidonic acid are associated with lower ratios of total to high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol. There is preliminary evidence that EPA decreases natural killer (NK) cell activity. Vitamin B12 is required for normal erythropoiesis. It is also essential for the synthesis of methionine from homocysteine. Vitamin B12 is essential for folate utilization, and its absence results in a functional folate deficiency. Vitamin B12 deficiency usually results in megaloblastic anaemia or neurologic damage. Folic acid is a component of coenzymes which play a major role in intracellular metabolism. Tetrahydrofolate plays an indirect role in the rate-limiting step of DNA synthesis. Abnormalities in this process that occur with folic acid deficiency can cause megaloblastic anaemia. Folic acid is also involved in the metabolism of homocysteine. Low folate levels are associated with increased plasma homocysteine levels. Indications: Omega 3 essential fatty acids (EPA and DHA) are important in the functioning of many of the systems of the body including the nervous, circulatory and musculoskeletal system. The EFA's are also involved in the normal inflammation process. Interactions: High doses of fish oil seem to have antiplatelet effects so theoretically, combining fish oil with herbs, supplements or drugs with antiplatelet/anticoagulant constituents might increase the risk of bleeding in some people. Identification: A large oblong, kharki coloured, soft gelatine capsule. Presentation: Available in 30's or 500's - a white securitainer with a Foodstate® embossed cap contained in an individually printed carton.
