Omega-3 fatty acids are considered essential fatty acids (EFA's), which means that they are essential to human health, but cannot be manufactured by the body. Omega-3 fatty acids must be obtained from food. Omega-3 fatty acids can be found in marine products such the New Zealand Greenlipped™ Mussel. It is important to maintain an appropriate balance of Omega-3 as it plays a crucial role in brain function as well as
normal growth and development. These EFA's considered beneficial for the body is EPA,
DHA, ETA and aLA. ALA is known to convert to EPA and DHA:
EPA assists with skin permeability, condition and tone, with other physiological functions, such as nail strength. EPA assists in the reduction of cholesterol and saturated fat consumption. EPA is also an anti-inflammatory, beneficial for conditions such
as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. DHA perform many biological benefits for the body. The brain is composed of 10% DHA, and higher levels of DHA are associated with greater intelligence.
DHA is also critical for the health of the eyes. EPA's and DHA's help maintain the fluidity of cell membranes, so assisting nutrient delivery to the cell, and toxic metabolic by-product removal. They also help keep the blood "slippery" thereby assisting with circulation. ETA's have profound anti-inflammatory functions, in effect blocking inflammation pathways.
A key component in rebuilding cartilage and connective tissues, are Glucosamines and GAG's (Glycosaminoglycans/ Mucopolysaccharides). GAG's consist of precursors such as Glycosaminoglycans, Chondroitin sulphates which provide the necessary building blocks to rebuild cartilage and connective tissues. GAG's also contribute to the viscosity formation of synovial fluid, as they are well known for their joint lubrication qualities.
