Biethica Krill Oil 60 Capsules
Krill, despite its small size, is one of the world's biggest biomasses. The Antarctic krill, Euphausia superba, lives in the cold and pristine waters of Antarctica, and feed on plankton. Krill oil is a supplemental source of powerful antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids and phosholipids derived from tiny crustaceans harvested largely in the Southern Ocean waters of the Antarctic.
Omega-3 phospholipids for cardiovascular care.
Omega-3 = EPA + DHA
Omega-3 phospholipids’ role in preventing cardiovascular disease
Patients diagnosed with CVD have shown significantly lower concentrations of omega-3 in tissues, blood, and red blood cells. Omega-3 provides recognized beneficial effects in preventing CVD, and the evidence supporting greater omega-3 dietary intake is increasing.
Mechanisms by which omega-3 phospholipids prevent cardiovascular disease
The benefits of omega-3 phospholipids in the prevention of CVD result from modulation of risk factors via a number of mechanisms proposed by scientists. On the sub-cellular level, risk factor modulation results from incorporation of omega-3 phospholipids in cell membranes, alteration of membrane properties, altering inflammatory responses, inclusion in modulating enzymes involved in cell signaling pathways, and altering gene expression.
Omega-3 modulates cardiovascular risk factors
Omega-3 helps prevent heart disease by beneficially affecting several CVD risk factors. Omega-3 has been observed to lower blood pressure and appears to help prevent arrhythmia. A lower risk of CV blood clot formation may be the result of omega-3’s alteration of blood clotting processes. Omega-3 has beneficial effects on blood cholesterol levels by decreasing the level of so-called “bad” cholesterol (LDL) and increasing the level of “good” cholesterol (HDL). Omega-3 is also thought to help deter atherosclerosis processes. Modulation of the aforementioned risk factors is suggested as primary components of the beneficial effects of omega-3 in the prevention of cardiovascular disease.
