What does this pack contain?
An important source of vitamins
Vitamin D is naturally produced by the body when exposed to direct sunlight. However, the effective exposure to UV rays and the synthesis of vitamin D depend on many factors (season, age ...)
Vitamin D is naturally present in foods such as vitamin D2 (Ergocalciferol) and vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), but it can also be provided as supplements. Vitamin D contributes to the normal functioning of the immune system and muscles, as well as the maintenance of healthy bones and teeth, as well as the normal absorption / use of calcium and phosphorus *.
Omega 3s are a class of lipids, more precisely, they are part of polyunsaturated fatty acids.
There is alpha linolenic acid (ALA): omega 3 'base' and therefore precursor of:
-Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)
-Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)
The conversion rate of ALA to EPA and DHA is very low in humans. It is therefore necessary to provide via its diet / supplementation EPA and DHA
But what are these two omega 3s, EPA and DHA?
DHA & EPA
-allow greater membrane fluidity,
-participate in neurotransmission and synaptic plasticity at the cerebral level,
-influence the carbohydrate metabolism thus regulating the supply of glucose to the brain,
- favor neurogenesis (creation of new neuronal cells),
-contribute to neuronal survival.
-reduce blood pressure,
-reduce the blood concentration to triglycerides,
-contribute to the development of the brain. Several studies show that DHA stimulates, even in low doses, the production of the LR11 protein that naturally protects the brain.
-contribute to the development of the eye.
-prevent against myocardial infarction
-protect the arteries and heart. They also have an antiallergic effect.
=> in summary, improve and prevent health problems (cardiovacular and degenerative)!
However, we must differentiate between plant omega 3, found in flax, hemp, rapeseed or walnuts, for example. And the omega 3 animals that we find almost exclusively in the chair of marine animals such as oily fish such as salmon, mackerel, anchovies, sardines, herring, halibut, cod ...
Vegetable omega 3 does not contain the famous EPA and DHA, with the exception of some algae, but this is less common. It is therefore imperative to consume fish or supplements based on omega 3 containing EPA and DHA
?-linolenic acid (ALA) has a hypotriglyceridemic effect (body fat), reducing the synthesis of fatty acids and promoting their beta-oxidation. ?-oxidation is a biological process of degrading fatty acids to produce energy.
ALA has an anti-inflammatory effect and significantly reduces inflammatory markers: CRP, Interleukin 1, TNS a, proinflammatory cytokine.
=> in a nutshell ALA (but also EPA and DHA) reduce inflammation and thus significantly improve sports recovery while reducing the risk of injury related to inflammation such as tendinitis, well known injuries in the environment athletic.
In addition, a good omega 3 allows a better hormonal synthesis at the cellular receptors. In other words it means that your hormones work better, and having hormones that work well means having easier to build muscle mass, lose fat, recover, improve sports performance etc ...
Acquiring a good rate of omega 3 is a long-term job, it takes nearly 6 months to increase the average rate of the Belgian to a healthy rate worthy of a Japanese. But sports and especially health benefits are worth the candle.
