Fish oil is oil derived from the tissues of oily fish. Fish oils contain the omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), precursors of certain eicosanoids that are known to reduce inflammation in the body. The most widely available dietary source of EPA and DHA is cold-water oily fish, such as salmon, herring, mackerel, anchovies, and sardines. Oils from these fish have a profile of around seven times as much omega-3 oils as omega-6 oils. DHA is a structural component of the skin. It is responsible for the health of cell membranes, which make up a large part of skin. A healthy cell membrane results in soft, moist, supple and wrinkle-free skin. EPA also benefits the skin in several ways, including: managing oil production in skin; managing skin hydration; preventing hyperkeratinisation of hair follicles (the little red bumps often seen on upper arms) and preventing premature ageing of the skin. Omega-3s can also protect your skin from sun damage. EPA helps block the release of substances that eat away at the collagen in your skin after sun exposure. One of the main roles that vitamin D plays in the body is that of keeping our brain and nervous system healthy. It is important for the reabsorption of calcium by the kidneys and the absorption of phosphorous by the intestines, two basic factors for tooth and bone health. It helps to maintain normal functioning of muscles and the immune system and to regulate insulin levels in the management of type-2 diabetes. According to recent studies, vitamin D has anti-proliferative properties towards diseased cells and it plays a fundamental role in cell growth and intercellular communication. Vitamin E has properties which are mainly linked to its powerful antioxidant effect. Its action against free radicals triggers physiological reactions which render cellular membranes stronger and protect red blood cells, which are among the cells in our body most exposed to oxidative stress. As it is an antioxidant, it is capable of reducing oxidative stress in numerous physiological processes and of thus protecting the body from damage caused by various harmful factors such as UV rays, cigarette smoke and cell damage caused by ageing. It protects the cardiocirculatory system: in fact a connection between low levels of vitamin E in the blood and coronary diseases, arteriosclerosis and high cholesterol has been found. It also appears to be useful in preventing various kinds of thrombosis and blood coagulation problems and in preventing and treating various chronic pathologies linked to oxidative stress. It also protects the immune system, which comprises mainly antibodies and intestinal bacterial floral. Lastly, vitamin E supplements prevent or slow down the progress of eye diseases like cataracts or macular degeneration.
Take two tablets a day (one in the morning after breakfast and one in the evening after dinner) with plenty of water. For better absorption and to increase the product’s effectiveness, we recommend taking the tablets with hydrogen-rich water obtained using the FRAME® D5 device.
