Daily recommended intake of 1-3 Welmark OMEGA3 capsules benefit both the healthy people, and those at high risk of-or with cardiovascular and/or cerebrovascular conditions.
Welmark OMEGA3 soft gels are rich in essential fatty acid (EFA), the best known source of polyunsaturated OMEGA3 fatty acid that is important in human health. Containing EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA
(docosahexaenoic acid), EFA helps improving general circulation, thus is protective and beneficial in cardiovascular and cerebrovascular conditions such as myocardial infarction, cerebral infarction, high cholesterol
and artherosclerosis related diseases.
A diet high in saturated fatty acid, often present in meat and dietary fat, often result in high level of cholesterol and triglyercide in the circulation, that in turn thicken the arteries via a process called thrombogenesis. It is the increased ability of blood to clot (thrombogenesis) predisposes a higher risk of coronary heart disease, hypertensive vascular disease, cerebral infarction and stroke. Each Welmark OMEGA3
capsule contains 180mg of EPA and 120mg of DHA. EPA on the one hand, is an important component that can be converted into prostaglandin which reduces platelet aggregation, thus preventing thrombogenesis. DHA on the other hand, play an important role as structural membrane lipids in nerve tissue and the retina. Given that scientists have established the presence of DHA in the brain is essential for memory and information process, DHA is often referring to as the “Gold for the brain”.
Both EPA and DHA can be converted into natural anti-inflammatory substances such as prostaglandin and leukotrienes, these are compounds that help decrease inflammation and pain thus have been shown to be beneficial to autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory skin diseases. Research is continually producing positive findings for these two vital fatty acids.
Complementary to EPA and DHA, Welmark OMEGA3
capsules also contain a supplementary amount of Vitamins E
(1mg), a potent antioxidant that has shown to reduce blood pressure in patients with high blood pressure and appear to lowering their risk of heart disease.
