Vinco's Omega-3 Marine Omega-3 Marine‚ containing 1650 mg of Omega-3 Fatty Acid‚ represents a breakthrough in fish oil supplementation. A purity process that eliminates heavy fish oil aftertaste with no gastric "repeat‚" while leaving the natural omega-3 benefits intact. Omega-3 Marine has a pleasant Natural Lemon flavor‚ and contains an antioxidant blend for increased stability - as much as 300% more compared to other brands.
Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) Overview Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) is a member of the omega-3 family of fatty acids. Although EPA can be consumed directly by eating certain kinds of fish‚ it is also produced in the body from the conversion of alpha linolenic acid (ALA)‚ also known as omega-3. The metabolic processes that convert omega-3 to EPA is accomplished by desaturase and elongase enzymes. Desaturase enzymes produce additional double bonds‚ while elongase enzymes add carbon atoms to make a longer fatty acid chains. The parent‚ or precursor‚ omega-3 molecule‚ alpha linolenic acid (ALA)‚ is a long-chain fatty acid that contains 18 carbon atoms with three double bonds. Under the influence of the desaturase and elongase enzymes‚ omega-3 is converted to eicosapentaenoic acid‚ which is a fatty acid that is 20 carbons long and contains five double bonds. EPA is the precursor compound for the conversion to a group of chemicals called the series 3 prostaglandins (PGE3)‚ which provide anti-inflammatory activity‚ enhance the immune system‚ thin the blood and lower blood pressure.
Absorption EPA & DHA are absorbed from the intestinal tract‚ but since it is a fat‚ absorption is dependent on the amount of fat being consumed at the particular meal. One study reported that the absorption of EPA and DHA fish oils was increased three-fold when consumed with a high-fat meal.(1)
Symptoms and Causes for Deficiency of EPA & DHA A deficiency of EPA & DHA have become increasingly common for the following reasons:
• Reduced consumptions of cold water fish‚ which is the primary dietary source of EPA & DHA.
• Low-fat diets reduce consumptions of EPA‚ DHA and other important fatty acids.
• Omega-3 (alpha linolenic acid)‚ the dietary precursor to EPA & DHA‚ is typically removed from food to extend product shelf life.
In the last half century‚ there has been a significant increase in the use of processed oils from the omega-6 family such as corn‚ sunflower and safflower oils‚ which compete with and suppress the body's ability to convert omega-3 to EPA. Consumption of large quantities of trans fatty acids from foods containing partially hydrogenated fats and oils inhibits the enzyme delta-6-desaturase enzyme activity‚ which is responsible for the conversion of omega-3 to EPA and DHA and also omega-6 to its longer chain fattyacids.(2) The following nutrients are required for proper function of delta-6-desaturase enzyme activity‚ which converts omega-3 to EPA and DHA. They are niacin‚ pyridoxine‚ ascorbic acid‚ and zinc. Thus‚ a deficiency of any of these nutrients could impair the biosynthesis of EPA and DHA.(3)
Some of the major symptoms of a deficiency of EPA & DHa include the following: growth retardation in infants‚ weakness‚ impaired vision and learning ability‚ behavioral changes‚ dry skin‚ edema‚ increased inflammation‚ sticky platelets‚ elevated blood pressure‚ elevated triglycerides‚ altered metabolism‚ and weakened immune system.
