Pure Omega Ultra HP provides omega-3 essential polyunsaturated fatty acids that have distinct chemical structures and physiologic functions.
EPA and DHA are abundantly enriched in the retina, brain, and heart tissues. Each have preferential distribution within the phospholipid bilayer of cell membranes and have been shown to exert unique biological actions.
- Humans have limited capacity to endogenously produce EPA and DHA, dietary supplementation of EPA and DHA is an effective way to increase intake of these essential fatty acids.
- Omega-3 fatty acids compete with other fatty acids in the body for cyclooxygenase (COX) and lipoxygenase (LOX) enzyme metabolism, incorporation into cell membranes, and the synthesis of lipid mediators.
- The long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are almost exclusively marine-derived and act together to influence membrane fluidity and signal transduction pathways.
