Omega-3 fatty acids are a special class of polyunsaturated fatty acids that regulate many important bodily functions, such as brain and heart function, as components of cell membranes and precursors of eicosanoids.
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) are biologically active omega-3 fatty acids.
Health Benefits of DHA and EPA According to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA)
DHA and EPA contribute to:
- Normal heart function
DHA contributes to:
- Maintenance of normal brain function
- Maintenance of normal vision
Other effects of DHA and EPA are still being researched.
Vitamin D and Vitamin K2
Vitamin D and vitamin K2 are cofactors in the regulation of calcium metabolism. If there is an existing vitamin K2 deficiency while taking vitamin D3, there is a higher risk of over-sized calcium deposits in vessels and organs (risk of calcification, arteriosclerosis, kidney stones, etc.). Sunday Natural vitamin D3 and K2 MK7 combines both nutrients in a ratio to ensure optimal synergy.
Health Benefits of Vitamin D According to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA)
Vitamin D contributes to:
- Normal absorption/utilisation of calcium and phosphorus
- Normal blood calcium levels
- Maintenance of bones
- Maintenance of normal muscle function
- Maintenance of healthy teeth
- Normal immune system function
Most organisations do not consider vitamin K1 and K2 separately and, as such, there is not extensive information available on the benefits of vitamin K2 specifically. As such, our statements about vitamin K2 are based on the assumption that K1 and K2 function similarly.
Health Benefits of Vitamin K According to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA)
Vitamin K contributes to:
- Normal blood clotting
- Maintenance of normal bones
Vitamin E is, chemically speaking, an entire vitamin group consisting of 8 different compounds. These are divided into 4 tocopherols and 4 tocotrienols that are further categorised as alpha, beta, gamma, and delta. Each vitamin E compound has unique properties and works together with the other forms of vitamin E synergistically. The 4 tocopherols contained in this capsule provide optimal bioavailability and bioactivity.
Health Benefits of Vitamin E According to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA)
Vitamin E contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress and proteins and lipids from oxidative damage.
