What is Ultra Omega-3?
Ultra Omega-3 by HSN Essentials is a nutritional supplement made of Omega-3 fatty acids (EPA + DHA).
It is a type of polyunsaturated fat that our organism needs but which is unable to synthesize on its own.
Ultra Omega-3 has been enriched with Vitamin E, a fat-soluble vitamin with great antioxidant properties. (1)
Vitamin E helps with the protection of the cells from the presence of toxic compounds and it has significant anticoagulant properties, so it has an important role as a protector of the cardiovascular system. (2)
Composition of Omega-3
There are three main Omega-3 fatty acids: alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) which can be found in some seeds and oils of some plants such as flaxseed, eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and docosahexaenoic (DHA), found in fish and crustaceans.
Although the body produces EPA and DHA from ALA, the amount is not always enough, which is the reason why experts recommend their consumption through supplementation.
Ultra Omega-3 by HSN Essentials stands out over the rest of Omega-3 products due to its high content of Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and Dicosapentaenoic acid (EPA):
- EPA: 660 mg
- DHA: 440 mg
Both fatty acids play an essential task in the health of our organism.
When to use Omega-3 supplementation?
As it was previously explained, this type of nutrient is essential for the organism, which is why it is so important.
In this sense, those people who do not consume Omega-3 should consider using supplementation. Another reason is the higher costs of consuming sources such as blue fish to reach the daily requirements of EPA and DHA.
At the same time, there is a risk of oxidating these fatty acids when we cook.
What are the properties of Omega-3?
The essential Omega 3 fatty acid has multiple beneficial properties for the organism. Among them we highlight:
- Prevention of the obstruction of the arteries due to atherosclerosis. (3)
- Prevention of heart diseases. (4)
- Relieves menstrual pain. (5)
- Relieves joint pain. (6)
- Prenatal supplementation with fish oil may be beneficial in terms of neurological development. (7)
- Prevention of memory loss and Alzheimer's disease in old people. (8)
Specifically, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) contributes to:
- Proper functioning of the brain
- Maintenance of triglyceride levels in blood
- Maintenance of the sight
This food supplement also includes eicosapentanoic acid (EPA). The combination of these two essential acids contributes to:
- Maintenance of arterial pressure
- Maintenance of triglyceride levels in blood
- Proper functioning of the heart
Who can benefit from Omega-3?
- It is ideal for anyone who wants to provide an optimal intake of omega 3 fatty acids to their diet
- All kinds of athletes and active people
