Contributing to a Healthy Diet
Lipid management is an important part of maintaining a healthy heart. The majority of fats are transported in our blood through lipoproteins. Abnormal blood lipid levels (high total cholesterol, high levels of triglycerides, high levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) or low levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol) is an important risk indicators for cardiovascular health. Changing to a healthy diet can improve triglycerides and LDL levels and positively impact the lipid profile. DHA omega-3 and lycopene can play a part in a well-balanced diet.
Significantly Improved Bioavailability
One of the major challenges that lycopene and existing DHA omega-3 supplements face is poor
Bioavailability is the actual measure of what is detected in intended target tissue following the ingestion of an active ingredient. Many factors can influence bioavailability, including the formulation, the sensitivity to intestinal digestion and acidity in the stomach, the rate of absorption.
As a result, the bioavailability of key substances in many food supplements can often be as low as 5-10% of initial ingestion**.
Enhanced by Delligent™ Technology, Lycodha demonstrates superior bioavailability of DHA when compared to regular omega-3 products.
Clinically Tested Benefits for Heart Health
Lowering elevated Triglyceride Levels
A healthy level of triglycerides is important: post ingestion, the body converts excess calories into triglycerides which are stored in fat cells and later released for energy between meals. However, a raised triglyceride level is a well-known indicator of early stage deterioration of cardiovascular health.
Enabled by Delligent™ Technology, Lycodha shows superior efficacy when compared to regular omega-3 products. In a clinical test, triglycerides level was reduced by 14% after 4 weeks of Lycodha supplementation, achieving double the reduction of the DHA control product with half the dose of DHA in Lycodha (250 mg) vs. the control omega-3 product used (500 mg).
Reducing LDL oxidation levels
Lycodha provides a significantly higher rate of reduction in LDL peroxidation in comparison with reference omega-3. After 4 weeks, Lycodha can reduce LDL-Px by as much as 86%.
Superior to Reference Products
Controlled LDL-C profile
Lycodha addresses the challenges related to the administration of regular DHA omega-3 products. Low bioavailability requires high doses ingestion, resulting in side effects (fishy taste, reflux, nausea, LDL-C increase) and low compliance.
Increasing Compliance Through Reduced Dosage
All supplements have to be delivered in an appropriate formula to maximize efficacy which depends on bioavailability of active ingredients. Delligent™ Technology enhances the bioavailability of DHA omega-3 through optimal targeting to the liver and subsequently lipoproteins, allowing a lower dose of active ingredient whilst maintaining high efficacy. Lycodha’s achieves higher bioefficacy with lower doses of actives creating lower risk of potential adverse effects resulting in higher compliance.
Eliminating LDL-Related Side Effects
One of the major challenges associated with DHA omega-3 are concerns around potential increased LDL-C levels. Controlling LDL-C has therefore become a primary goal in cardiovascular prevention during DHA omega-3 intervention. Clinical tests of Lycodha vs. reference DHA omega-3 have shown significantly better control of LDL-C level.
An Effective and Safe Supplementary Treatment
Numerous scientific studies have shown that omega-3 effectively and safely lowers triglyceride levels and increases low-density lipoprotein size, as well as affecting high-density lipoprotein metabolism. PUFAs are an effective, safe and relatively cheap adjunct to diet and existing medication for patients with high and very high triglyceride levels.
