TIENS Omega-3 Capsules are a high quality dietary supplement whose formula combines the Nutritional benefits of fish oil, sea buckthorn oil and vitamin E. This well balanced formula allows easy absorption and has multiple benefits to your wellbeing.
The main ingredient of TIENS’ Omega-3 is fish oil. It is a valuable and even irreplaceable element of our diet. Nutritional importance of Fish oil was realised after research demonstrated that Eskimos, despite their high-calorie diet rich in fat, very seldom suffer from the cardiovascular system diseases. It was demonstrated that the reason for this phenomenon was not genetic factors, but the presence of protective substances found in fish oil. In fact, it turned out that Eskimo emigrants who changed their diet, developed lifestyle diseases connected with the cardiovascular system as frequently as Europeans.
Fish Oil contains vitamins A and D, but its beneficial properties result, first of all, from a high content of Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids belong to the group of essential fatty acids (EFA). Their most valuable source is the fat of sea fish. The adjective “essential”, which is associated with the name of these acids, confirms the important role they play in the human body. However, the human body cannot produce them.
Supplementing our diet with essential fatty acids is important. Particularly valuable Omega-3 fatty acids are EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). EPA is necessary for transmission of information between nerve fibres. DHA demonstrates many positive influences for example, it lowers the level of triglycerides in the blood, whereas its deficiency lowers the level of serotonin in the brain and it may cause the occurrence of mental and nervous system diseases.
Sea buckthorn grows mainly in Europe and Asia, it is much older than the gingko tree and is one of the oldest plants on Earth, evolving for 200 million years. Sea buckthorn is full of nutrients and has a nutrient combination that increases its healing abilities. The seeds contain high levels of antioxidants such as vitamin C and E, and flavonoids.
