Essential fatty acids are not produced in the body but obtained from dietary sources only. Mega 3 contains marine triglycerides providing a mixture of eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid, the omega-3 marine fatty acids. Omega-3 triglycerides are precursors of eicosanoids in fish and, when taken by man, these compete with the precursor arachidonic acid. Their action in man includes reduction in plasma triglycerides, cholesterol and very low-density lipoproteins, an anti-inflammatory action and a fibrinolytic or antiplatelet effect. In addition, these fatty acids are needed for cell membrane structure and can be converted into prostaglandin which help to maintain healthy joints, circulation and heart function. Other components of omega-3 are vitamins A and D, however, very low concentrations, do not offer any therapeutic or prophylactic values even at higher doses. Omega- 3, the main triglycerides, are fully absorbed from the Gl tract in most individuals with normal GI function. These fatty acids are well distributed in the body and stored in the adipose tissues. Alpha-Linolenic acid is converted to eicosapentaenoic acid which is further converted to docosahexaenoic acid and the final product, prostaglandin series 3. These prostaglandins are utilised to assist invarious functions in the body.
