Equazen Eye Q Mind - Fatty acids are matter for the mind. The billions of nerve cells and connections that form the central nervous system depend on the presence of omega-3 and omega-6 long chain fatty acids for the brain to function. In fact up to 30% of the dry weight of the brain consists of these fatty acids. In order of importance, the fatty acids included in the formulation, are:
Omega-3 Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) plays an important role in maintaining and developing certain aspects of brain and eye function, such as moment to moment brain cell signalling.
Omega-6 Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) contains anti-inflammatory properties and can be converted by the body into Arachidonic Acid, a fatty acid that forms an integral part of nerve endings.
Omega-3 Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) is a structural fatty acid found in the brain and eyes, thus is important for providing ongoing repair.
The following nutrients work to ensure the optimum functioning of the nervous system:
B Vitamins for a better brain - Vitamin B12 and folic acid play a role in the formation of healthy blood, which transports oxygen and facilitates its utilisation through the hemispheres in the brain. Vitamin B6, along with zinc and magnesium, are essential elements for the functioning of the nervous system and are also required for the synthesis of neuro-transmitters, which allow for communication between neurons and cells.
Zinc and Vitamin E - Zinc and Vitamin E are antioxidants that help protect cells and tissues from free radical damage. Antioxidants are of particular importance in helping to protect nerve cells. Zinc may also help maintain healthy nerve cells because of its role in cell replication.
Magnesium for muscles and nerves - Magnesium assists muscle and nerve function, and also helps regulate blood glucose levels, important in fuelling the brain throughout the day. Our bodies cannot make these nutrients, and it is therefore important that an adequate intake is maintained in our diets.
