What are Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, and why are they important?

Certain Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids cannot be produced by our bodies or produced in ideal quantities and, therefore, must be consumed in the diet. But when our diets are too rich in Omega-6 fatty acids compared to Omega-3s, a cellular imbalance can result that leads to excess inflammation and predisposes us to a host of chronic and severe health conditions. By administering Platinum Performance® Wellness, you can help support a healthy ratio of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids.

  • Play a crucial role in brain function as well as normal growth and development
  • Provide important building blocks to the body, impacting health on the cellular level
  • Highly concentrated in the brain, helping to support cognitive health
  • Cannot be produced by the body and therefore must be consumed through the diet
  • Also known as polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs)

What impact does turmeric have on my joints?

Turmeric is a powerful plant compound that has been used for 4,000 years to support a variety of conditions. Plant compounds that contain natural antioxidant activity can scavenge free radicals in the body. Free radicals can damage cell membranes. Antioxidants can neutralize free radicals and maintain cell integrity. Turmeric can support a normal healthy inflammatory response in the body.

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a glycosaminoglycan in connective, epithelial and neural tissues. It is a major component of synovial fluid that coats and lubricates joint surfaces to reduce friction between bones during movement. In doing so, HA helps maintain healthy joint function.

What is the role of sulfur in joint comfort?

MSM is a naturally occurring sulfur compound, which is critical to joint health and helps maintain the structure of connective tissue in the joint. The sulfur in MSM is used to produce glycosaminoglycans that are the fundamental building blocks of joint cartilage and whose molecules are linked together in chains by disulfide bonds. These bridges help reduce conformational flexibility of glycosaminoglycan chains, making cartilage firm and resilient.

Does my diet provide the proper amount of magnesium?

Most people believe that they are consuming enough magnesium from their diet alone, but often times this isn't the case. In fact, data from the 1999-2000 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey suggest that a significant amount of adults in the United States do not get the recommended amounts of magnesium in their diets. The right supplement plan can help replenish magnesium in the body and restore proper levels. Magnesium citrate, found in Platinum Performance® Wellness formula and Platinum Performance® Minerals , is easily absorbed into the body.

Athletic Performance Icon

Athletic Performance

How can Omega-3 fatty acids benefit athletes?

  • Keeping Cool. When the body metabolizes Omega-3 fatty acids, it tends to run cooler because there is less heat produced than other sources and less water utilized, keeping athletes hydrated during heavy work.
  • Less Lactic Acid. These fats also allow for a reduction in exercise-induced lactate production, which is the body's natural response when oxygen is limited and support is needed very quickly during strenuous work. The body will use fat stores before it needs to break down glucose for additional support.
  • Muscle Support. With a diet rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, athletes have more intramuscular fat stores readily available and will use that as their first support source during exercise.
  • Encourage Recovery. When fatty acids are present in the diet, there is a reduction in the amount of glucose utilized and more muscle glycogen is spared which will delay the onset of fatigue and support muscle recovery.
Immune Support Icon

Immune Support

What is colostrum?

Colostrum is a form of milk produced by mammals and is important within the first 72 hours after birth, providing life-supporting immune and growth factors that ensure the health of a newborn baby. The amount of immune and growth factors present in our bodies begins to decline as we age. Colostrum may provide powerful support for a healthy immune system.

Is cell mediated immunity important?

Cell mediated immunity is extremely important in the resistance to infection by certain bacteria, viruses, yeast and parasites. Platinum Performance® Wellness contains several ingredients including L-Glutamine, vitamin C, vitamin E, whey protein and Omega-3 fatty acids that help support healthy immune function.
Cognitive Icon


How does DHA affect cognitive function?

The Omega-3 fatty acid known as DHA is key to proper brain function. DHA is found in high concentration in the gray matter of the brain and is important in the function of brain cell membranes. By causing cell membranes to become more fluid, DHA can support communication between cells. Omega-3 fatty acids, especially DHA, are like the oil to your brain’s engine.

Why do pregnant women need to supplement with Omega-3 fatty acids?

DHA Omega-3 is found throughout the body but is most abundant in the brain, eyes and heart. In fact, DHA represents about 97% of all Omega-3 fats in the brain and 93% of all Omega-3 fats in the retina. It is important prenatally and postnatally for optimal infant brain, eye and nervous system development. However, developing infants cannot efficiently produce their own DHA and must obtain this vital nutrient through the placenta during pregnancy and from breast milk after birth.
Antioxidant Support Icon

Antioxidant Support

What is a free radical and how do antioxidants affect them?

Free radicals are chemicals produced either as a result of normal metabolism or in response to exercise, inhalation of dust and air pollutants or exposure to ultraviolet light. Free radicals cause chain reactions that result in oxidative damage to proteins, lipids and DNA. Antioxidants are known as “free radical scavengers” and have the ability to terminate these chain reactions by removing free radicals and inhibiting the oxidation of other molecules.
