Omega 3 - FAQs
What is Omega-3 and what is it good for ?
Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid (EFA), also known as a polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA). It is derived from both animal and plant sources, although Omega-3 from fish oil is the most common supplemental form. Fatty acids form the main useful fraction of fats and oils and are necessary for overall health. Because our body cannot manufacture essential fatty acids, we must get them from food or supplemental.
What is the difference between EPA and DHA ?
EPA and DHA are the active forms of omega-3. They work together in the body, but have different biological roles. EPA is considered the mediator, or peacemaker, of cell messengers and plays a vital role in regulating inflammation, blood pressure, blood clotting, immune function, and cell growth. EPA benefits heart health and mood balance, enhances joint health, and improves other inflammatory conditions. DHA plays a special role in dynamic, fast-acting cells, like brain cells and heart muscle. DHA is extremely important to components of cellular membranes and is highly concentrated in nervous system tissue such as the brain and eyes. Dietary DHA may improve cognitive and visual development and is protective against macular degeneration, stroke, dementia.
Joint Support - FAQs
What is Nveda Joint Support ?
Nveda Joint Support contains ingredients that promotes recovery and maintenance of joints. Unlike most nutraceutical ingredients, which provide one-dimensional support, Collagen Type 2 is actually a concentrated bioavailable and bioactive matrix of naturally occurring molecules that play a vital role in the body's ability to maintain healthy connective tissues & flexible joints. Together these elements provide multi-dimensional nutritional support that helps the body more effectively renew connective tissue health in targeted crucial areas such as joints.
Why Collagen Type 2 ?
Let’s start with what happens to our body as we age. In our teen’s and early 20’s there is an abundance of Collagen and this promotes the growth of muscles tendons and ligaments, collagen is used as the building protein for this growth.
However, from about the age of about 25, the amount of collagen produced by our bodies reduces at a rate of between 1 to 1½% per year. This means that by the age of 45 we have approximately 25% less of the collagen in your body that is needed for optimum joint and skin health.
What is the difference between Type I collagen and Type II collagen ?
Collagen types are a biological classification. Type I collagen is found in bones and skin. It accounts for more than 90% of organic mass of bone and is also the major component of skin, tendons and ligaments. Type II collagen is the main collagen of cartilage. Collagen is the most predominant protein in the body. A number of different types of collagen have been discovered among which type I/III and type II are the major types for the skin dermis and for the articular cartilage respectively.
What makes Chicken Cartilage different from gelatin ?
Chicken cartilage is the ONLY currently known source of Type II Collagen. Gelatin or Chondroitin Sulfate provides only Type I Collagen which does not work as effectively with immune-system- related forms of arthritis.
How does Chicken Cartilage work ?
The Type II Collagen in Chicken Cartilage naturally stabilizes the body's immune system and helps neutralize the production of abnormal molecular structures thought to be a major cause of joint misery and stiffness; especially in rheumatoid arthritis. It also provides the raw materials for human
