DHA and EPA are omega-3 fatty acids. Higher dietary intake of omega-3 fatty acids is associated with decrease in cardiovascular disease risk and is beneficial in the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Research shows that omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation and may help lower risk of chronic diseases.
Vitamin A, D, E and K are essential fat-soluble vitamins. They are best absorbed in the presence of fat. Thus, they are included in the formula with fish oil.
Lutein, lycopene and astaxanthin are powerful fat-soluble antioxidants. They are responsible for bright red-orange color of tomatoes, bell peppers, salmon, caviar, shrimp.
Copper, iron and selenium are essential minerals. Copper is involved in many functions in the body including energy production, iron metabolism, and functioning of central nervous system. Iron is necessary for oxygen transport in the blood and production of red blood cells. It is also required for such essential functions as growth, reproduction, healing, and immune function. Selenium plays a role in thyroid function and is required for proper functioning of the immune system. It is also a potent antioxidant, especially when combined with vitamin E.
Folic acid is a vitamin B9. It is necessary for proper brain function and plays an important role in mental and emotional health. It aids in the production of DNA and RNA, the body’s genetic material, and is especially important when cells and tissues are growing rapidly, such as in infancy, adolescence, and pregnancy. Folic acid also works closely with vitamin B12 to help make red blood cells and help iron work properly in the body.
Vitamin B12 is essential for healthy development of red blood cells and nervous cells. Vitamin B12 and folic acid work together to produce SAMe, a compound involved in immune function and mood.
