Omega-3 FA (EPA/DHA 80:20)
Omega-3 fatty acids are found in fatty layers of cold-water fish and shellfish, plant and nut oils, English walnuts, flaxseed, algae oils, and fortified foods. Omega-3 fatty acids are incredibly important. They have many powerful health benefits to our body and brain.
Studies have shown this herb to have the following actions:-
Regulates lipids metabolism: Omega-3 fatty acids reduces the synthesis and secretion of very-low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) particles, and increase TG removal from VLDL and chylomicron particles through the upregulation of enzymes, such as lipoprotein lipase.
Attenuates platelet function: Omega 3 and Omega -6 PUFA oxylipin metabolites regulates platelet function and prevents platelet aggregation though COX-2 inhibition.
Prevents atherosclerotic plaque: Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids decreases intercellular adhesive interactions; pro‐inflammatory cytokines and inhibits lipid peroxidation in blood vessels.
Increase insulin sensitivity: Omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) counteract insulin resistance development by modulating mitochondrial bioenergetics and endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress.
