What is Omega-3?
Omega-3 is the name of a type of fat that is found in oil-rich fish and some plant oils and is also known as ‘n-3.’ They are from the family of ‘good’ fats - PolyUnsaturated Fatty Acids (PUFAs) that are not only beneficial for health, but are essential in the diet. The most effective omega-3’s are EPA (EicosaPentaenoic Acid) and DHA (DocosaHexaenoic Acid).
How are Omega-3 Oils Unique?
Because of their unique structure, omega-3's have important and unique functions in our bodies. Both DHA and EPA are involved in healthy cardiovascular systems, immune processes, and help support the formation of healthy prostaglandins. DHA is a vital component of the retina, brain and neurons. Marine oils supply omega-3 fatty acids and are especially high in DHA and EPA. Some vegetable oils contain ALA, but do not contain DHA or EPA.
EcoSmart: Eco-Friendly & Sustainable Source
Carlson EcoSmart is an eco-friendly product that is made from highly sustainable species of calamari. They are caught and harvested for food, and considered a delicacy in many parts of the world. Calamari have short life spans, breed prolifically, and only the mature are harvested, not the young. The calamari were being harvested for food and the DHA omega-3 rich oil was being discarded, until Carlson brought this naturally omega-3 rich oil from Norway to North America.
Scientists internationally are encouraging people to consume more of these omega-3’s (EPA & DHA) because of their health benefits. Carlson offers EcoSmart in easyto-swallow soft gels called ~ EcoSmart DHA and EcoSmart Omega-3. DHA and EPA are recognized in today’s scientific research as vital nutrients promoting healthy cardiovascular systems, brain and nerve function, vision, immune systems, and healthy joints and movement.
Vitamins are organic compounds that are necessary for normal growth and maintenance of life. As we are unable to synthesize vitamins, we must rely on foods and food supplements to maintain adequate amounts in our body.
Thirteen essential vitamins have been isolated and these are divided into two categories, water-soluble and fat-soluble vitamins. The water-soluble vitamins include Vitamin C and the group of B-Vitamins. These water-soluble are not stored by the body and can be readily depleted. The fat-soluble vitamins A, D, and E remain in the body for longer periods of time.
Although minerals make up only a small fraction of total body weight (4-5%), they are essential for human metabolism. Minerals act as the catalysts for many biochemical reactions within the human body. They are involved in responses of the nervous system and muscles, the absorption and secretions of the body's fluids, and maintain a delicate water balance within the body. The bones and teeth of our body have high mineral contents which accounts for their hardness and rigidity. Minerals, like vitamins, must also be supplied by dietary means as we are unable to synthesize them in our body.
