Omega-3 (fish oil)
- Concentrated fish oil contains polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), omega-3 family, which are not synthesized in the human body, as well as vitamins A and D.
- Their biological effect is large:
- a protective membrane
- protecting blood vessels and capillaries
- normalizing blood lipid composition
- normalizing blood rheology
- improves the metabolism of the brain
- protection against oncology
- Polyunsaturated fatty acids, omega-3 are involved in the regulation of metabolic processes, improve the transmission of nerve impulses, are components of cell membranes and neurons. Due to these properties and help restore concentration, improves memory.
- increases the body’s resistance to infectious diseases
- help improve memory, concentration, strengthen the view
- the normalization of the nervous system of the body of the child
- Purpose of fish oil is:
- effective in reducing blood cholesterol and triglycerides
- prevent hypertension, atherosclerosis and other cardiovascular diseases
- the prevention of thrombotic, ischemic, immune system
- the normalization of theendocrine glands, particularly the adrenal glands and gonads
- in cancer pathology
- asthma and other allergic diseases
- rheumatoid arthritis
- gastric ulcers and 12 duodenal ulcer
- liver disease
- to improve skin and hair
- Consumption of fish oil as the polyunsaturated fats in general, require additionalamounts of vitamin E as an antioxidant.
- Beta-carotene is a biological antioxidant. It protects cell membranes against the effects of free radicals.
- Beta-carotene is a predecessor of vitamin A («the growth vitamin»); it regulates the growth of bones and participates in the formation of optic pigments that are necessary for normal night and color vision.
- Vitamin A and its analogs have shown the ability to help inhibit cancer cell proliferation and help in returning to normal growth patterns. Individuals with highest levels of beta-carotene intake have lower risks of lung cancer, coronary artery heart disease, stroke and age-related eye disease than individuals with lowest lvels of beta-carotene intake. Its inhibitory effects are especially potent against leukemia and certain head and neck cancers.
- Beta-carotene may have a role to play in staving off heart disease, apparently a function of its ability to keep harmful LDL cholesterol from damaging the heart and coronary arteries.
- Beta-carotene has been shown to have benefits to the immune system.
- Like all other carotenoids, beta-carotene is an antioxidant. Antioxidants are substances that help prevent or reduce the formation of damaging chemicals in the body called free radicals.
- Consuming foods rich in beta-carotene appears to protect the body from damaging molecules called free radicals. Free radicals cause damage to cells through a process known as oxidation, and over time, such damage can lead to a variety of chronic illnesses. Beta-carotene’s antioxidant actions make it valuable in protecting against, and in some cases even reversing, precancerous conditions affecting the breast, mucous membranes, throat, mouth, stomach, prostate, colon, cervix, and bladder.
- The most important function of vitamin E is to maintain the integrity of the body’s intracellular membrane by protecting its physical stability and providing a defense line against tissue damage caused by oxidation
- Vitamin E is protective because it helps reduce oxidation of lipid membranes and the unsaturated fatty acids and prevents the breakdown of other nutrients by oxygen
- Vitamin E is an antioxidant that prevents free radical damage in biological membranes. Free radicals can cause cell damage that may contribute to the development of cardiovascular disease and cancer
- It is involved in the regulation of vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation and protein kinase C activity
- Vitamin E as an antioxidant helps to stabilize cell membranes and protect the tissues of the skin, eyes, liver, breast, and testes, which are more sensitive to oxidation
- Vitamin E helps protect against heart disease by limiting the oxidation of LDL-cholesterol
- Vitamin E also keeps arteries flexible and elastic, allowing blood to flow freely
- Vitamin E helps prevent arteries from clogging
- Vitamin E thins the blood, allowing for blood to flow more easily through arteries even when plaque is present
- Vitamin C and vitamin E, taken in combination, help to stabilise LDL cholesterol in the body. This may help to reduce the risk of atherosclerosis
- Antioxidants such as vitamin E help protect against the damaging effects of free radicals. The vitamin may also help fight cancer by boosting the immune system. Vitamin E may protect against the development of cancers by enhancing immune function
- Because of it’s antioxidant action, vitamin E may help to protect against cataracts and age related macular degeneration
- Alzheimer’s disease is a wasting disease of the brain. Oxidative stress is believed to contribute to the development of Alzheimer’s disease. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that prevents free radical damage in biological membranes. Vitamin E, together with vitamin C may prevent the development of Alzheimer’s disease
- The role of vitamin D is usually associated only with providing the body with calcium and phosphorus and the formation of the skeleton. However, its physiological function is much wider.
- Vitamin D plays an important role in the mineralization of bone, cartilage maturation and maturation of collagen, activates reparative processes in the epithelium.
- It normalizes the functions of the blood-formation and immune systems.
- Established the important role of vitamin D in the functioning of muscle and stimulation of protein synthesis, and its production of ATP. Recently identified as immunomodulatory function of vitamin D.
- Linked to this is the effectiveness of vitamin D in psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis.
- Vitamin D helps in the prevention of cancer pathology.
- Vitamin D is used to prevent and treat rickets, osteoporosis, hair loss, weeping eczema, for healing wounds and ulcers.
- Deficiency of vitamin C, B2, K and E reduces the therapeutic efficacy of vitamin D.
- In humans, vitamin D can be synthesized in the skin when exposed to sunlight from its predecessor D-7-digidroholesterina.
