Eicosapentaenoic and docosahexaenoic acids at (EPA and DHA) may be administered as capsules of fish oil, flaxseed, canola (rapeseed), soybeans, pumpkin, sesame, walnut oil, krill (a type of shrimp) and algae. Dosage of fish oil supplements should be based on the amount of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) they contained the total amount of fish oil. It is important that each person be sure of the source from where buy supplements omega-3 fatty acids because they do not contain mercury, lead, cadmium and other heavy metals.
Health is very important, but people want to enjoy life. How reconcile diet with culinary pampering holidays? Besides fish oil or flaxseed oil, as healthy, but closer to the holiday spirit is meat. Of pork.
But not just any pork but meat of Mangalita. Nicknamed “olive oil on four legs” or “pork salmon” Mangalita meat is very tasty, low in fat, with vitamins and optimal lipid profile. The low level of cholesterol is the main advantage of Mangalita pork from other races. Analyses carried out on meat, revealed that the percentage of unsaturated fatty acids in this meat reaches 70%, a percentage similar to that found in olive oil and salmon. Moreover, local study recently conducted by Professor Mencinicopschi on pig meat quality has reached the conclusion that this is well suited for those who suffer from cardiovascular disease.
While Romanians abandoned the race after 1989, neighbors of Hungary intuited of this Mangalita and are now among the largest exporters in the world of Mangalita ham, priced 80 euros per kilogram.
If you want a clean source, herbal origin of omega-3 acids, we provide flaxseed oil. In portfolio Wave Sun Pharma, we find and Flaxilip – natural preparation for the relief of dyslipidemic disorders. Flaxilip has a role in improving dyslipidemia disorders and lowering statin dose co-prescription statin Flaxilip. In Flaxilip composition, we find oil of Allium Sativum (garlic) 1.5 mg oil Linum usitatissimum (in) 700 mg, 200 mg extract of Commiphora Mukul Trigonella foenum graecum extract and 3 mg. Flaxilip can be administered orally, 1 to 2 capsules twice a day.
Linum usitatissimum oil (in) is a rich source of alpha-linoleic acid, which is associated with a lower risk for coronary heart disease and several types of cancer. Alpha-linolenic acid content in Linum usitatissimum eicosopentaenoic acid is metabolized to EPA, the precursor of prostaglandins of the 3 series, 5 series leukotrienes and thromboxane 3 series. The incorporation of alpha-linolenic acid in Linum usitatissimum, as well as its metabolites in the cell membrane determines its anti-inflammatory properties, and anti-proliferative inhibition of platelet aggregation. Linum usitatissimum oil is indicated hyperlipidemia, decrease platelet aggregation, stroke prevention.
