What is Omega 3 by Vitaminalia?
Omega 3 by Vitaminalia is a nutritional supplement that contains essential fatty acids in the form of Omega 3 that comes from fish oil.
Essential fatty acids have great benefits for the human body. This supplement is made of an 18% of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and a 12% of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
Omega-3 is a polyunsaturated fatty acid and is taken daily through food. This essential fatty acid is found in vegetable oils and fish, specially blue fish and seafood. It can also be found in walnuts, although in smaller amounts.
Omega 3 supplementation helps us to meet the daily requirements of fatty acids. This Vitaminalia product will meet your Omega 3 needs for a whole year.
Properties of Omega 3 fatty acids
Omega 3 fatty acids provide many benefits. We can highlight the most important ones:
Reducing the inflammation
There are several studies about the effects of Omega 3 on inflammatory processes within the human body.
The Medical School of the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom conducted a study in which they stated that: 'Atherosclerosis has an important inflammatory component and acute cardiovascular events can be initiated by inflammatory processes occurring in advanced plaques. Fatty acids influence inflammation through a variety of mechanisms. The contents of arachidonic acid EPA and DHA seem to be important. The anti-inflammatory effects of marine n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) may contribute to their protective actions towards atherosclerosis and plaque rupture.'(1)
Preventing heart diseases
A study conducted both in humans and animals revealed that taking Omega 3 significantly reduces the electrical excitability of the cardiac myocyte membrane, reducing its potential while resting and the duration of the refractory period by inhibiting the ion channels. This is due to the fact that it reduces the heart rate at rest and, therefore, the increased intake of omega 3 fatty acids will probably help to prevent cardiac diseases. (2)
Relieving the menstrual pain
Omega 3 fatty acids supplementation reduces the intensity of the symptoms of primary dysmenorrhoea. This was confirmed by a study conducted with women between 18 and 22 years of age that suffered from menstrual pains during their period. (3)
Relieving discogenic pain
To test whether Omega-3 supplementation was beneficial for individuals with neck or back pain, a study was conducted with 250 people who suffered these pains and they were given Omega-3 fish oil.
The results of this study revealed that Omega 3 supplementation is a safer alternative, in relation to other anti-inflammatory treatments for neck or back pain. (4)
