Functions and Applications

1. Omega-3 promotes the excretion of neutral or acidic cholesterol from the feces, inhibits the synthesis of lipids and lipoproteins in the liver, and can reduce plasma cholesterol, triglycerides, low-density lipoprotein (LDL), very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) ), increasing high-density lipoprotein (HDL).

2. Omega-3 is involved in the metabolism of arachidonic acid. Prostaglandin compounds PGI3 and TXA3 are generated. The metabolites of arachidonic acid are prostacyclin (PGI2) and thromboxane (TXA2); PGI2 can relax blood vessels, resist platelet aggregation, and prevent thrombosis; TXA2 can cause vasospasm, promote platelet aggregation and thrombosis. The role of PGI3 is the same as that of PGI2; but TXA3 does not have the role of TXA2. Therefore, EPA and DHA have vasodilator, antiplatelet aggregation and antithrombotic effects. Can be used for hyperlipoproteinemia, atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease and other cardiovascular diseases.
