Your gains have been suffering. You will not get optimal results if you do not get what you need. You absolutely need fish oil containing the highest grades of DHA and EPA along with the fat-blasting fatty acid GLA and specific minerals for what your lean mass-seeking body needs. And that fish oil you are currently taking might be hurting you and the environment. If fished for in uncontrolled, dirty waters, who knows what contaminants and NASTY things you are ingesting? Scivation has the answer. An affordable, all in one fish oil and mineral formula designed just for you. Keep reading and find out how Team Scivation Members will be the first to be able to harness this power…
Fish Oil, while it might be tested for its omega 3 content, might have some contaminants since we don’t know where the fish are caught a lot of the time. Mercury, pollutants, gyno-inducing estrogens….all a possibility. Not with Scivation. Scivation’s source of Fish oil (from the waters of Peru) provides the highest potency and purity (mercury non-detectable) and ensures that the proper safeguards are taken to also protect the environment by working with ethical fishing organizations in South America. The General Law of Fishery regulates all fishing activities in Peru. Peruvian waters are monitored constantly by the Marine Institute of Peru (IMARPE) to ensure the presence of a healthy and growing ecological system and avoid contamination of the waters by enforcing adequate waste treatment for all fishing companies. Can other fish oil supplements guarantee this level of safety? Probably not.
Most also overlook the wonder fat, GLA. This is NEEDED in a bodybuilders diet. For goodness sake, it helps you lose fat! Scivation gets this from the highest quality, tested borage oil.
And the final piece of the Essentials puzzle, minerals. The Complete Essentials Blend is made for you with lean mass gains in mind. Calcium, Vitamin D3, Magnesium and Vitamin E are all needed and if you do not have enough, you will be shortchanging yourself on fat loss and lean mass gains.
This is the formula that you need, period. And while helping to protect the environment, you will also be assuring the greatest gains of your life. Forget all of the bells and whistles mumbo jumbo. You will be amazed at what will happen with proper, untainted Essentials.
WHAT'S IN ESSENTIAL FA?
Ultra EFA Complex™
Essential nutrients are nutrients that the body cannot make and therefore must be obtained through the diet. There are two groups of fatty acids that are essential nutrients; the omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. These essential fatty acids (EFAs) and their metabolites are used in multiple biological processes in the body. Of prime importance are the omega-3’s eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and the omega-6 gamma linolenic acid (GLA).
EPA & DHA—The Omega-3’s
Most people’s diets are high in omega-6’s and omega-9’s but severely lack omega-3’s. This is due to poor dietary choices, specifically the consumption of processed foods. The omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA have been shown to decrease body fat mass, support cardiovascular health, healthy blood pressure, insulin sensitivity, inflammation reduction, joint health, along with many other overall health benefits. EPA and DHA are also necessary for optimal focus, concentration and memory. Since most diets are lacking in omega-3 fatty acids, taking supplemental EPA and DHA allows you to fill the holes in your diet, giving you the beneficial fatty acids your body needs.
EPA can be synthesized from alpha-linoleic acid (ALA), but the ability of the body to do so is limited. Therefore, obtaining a direct source of EPA and DHA, such as fish oil, is ideal. Scivation’s source of Fish oil (from the waters of Peru) provides the highest potency and purity (mercury non-detectable) and ensures that the proper safeguards are taken to also protect the environment by working with ethical fishing organizations in South America. The General Law of Fishery regulates all fishing activities in Peru. Peruvian waters are monitored constantly by the Marine Institute of Peru (IMARPE) to ensure the presence of a healthy and growing ecological system and avoid contamination of the waters by enforcing adequate waste treatment for all fishing companies.
Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) is an omega-6 fatty acid found in plant oils. The omega-6 fatty acids liolenic acid (LA) and arachadonic acid (AA) are pro-inflammatory while (GLA) and dihomogamma-liolenic acid (DGLA) are anti-inflammatory. GLA can be converted to either arachadonic acid (AA) or dihomogamma-liolenic acid (DGLA) in the body, though supplemental GLA obtained from oils is preferentially converted to DGLA and not AA, leading to an anti-inflammatory effect. GLA has been shown to support healthy nervous system, calcium absorption leading to stronger bones, skin health, joint pain and swelling reduction, healthy blood pressure, and possibly assist in weight management.
The body can produce GLA from Linoleic Acid (LA), though deficiencies can develop. Taking a GLA supplement ensures you have adequate amounts of GLA in your diet. The GLA in Scivation EssentialFA comes from Borage Oil.
The Complete EFA Blend gives you the three EFAs that have positive health benefits and are often lacking in one’s diet; EPA, DHA, and GLA. Taking Scivation EssentialFA ensures that you do not develop an EPA, DHA, or GLA deficiency and allows you to obtain the many benefits these fatty acids posses.
Complete Essentials Blend™
Vitamins and minerals are vital to the proper functioning on the body and are involved in countless reactions within the body. A deficiency of specific vitamins and minerals can have many detrimental effects. One can obtain the majority of their vitamin and mineral needs from food, but often times, especially when on a calorie restricted diet, the vitamin and mineral needs of the body are not met. Taking a multi-vitamin can help meet the needs of the body, but there is still one mineral that most people do not get enough of. That mineral is calcium. The Complete Essentials Blend was designed to give you the calcium you need as well as maximize its absorption.
Calcium & Vitamin D3
Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body, 99% of which is found in bones and teeth. Calcium is involved in cell signaling, including muscle contraction, nerve impulses, hormone and enzyme secretion, and vascular system functioning. In adults, 55% of men and 78% of women do not get enough calcium. When a calcium deficiency exists, calcium is obtained from breaking down bones, leading to bone weakness as well as a disturbance of normal body functioning.
In addition to disturbed body functioning, long term calcium deficiency can lead to osteoporosis, characterized by porous, fragile bones. Having fragile bones makes you very susceptible to injuries. Of concern to bodybuilders, a high protein diet may cause leaching of calcium from bone due to increased blood phosphorus levels. Therefore, it is of vital importance to maintain a high calcium intake when on a high protein diet. Maintaining an adequate calcium intake is a must for long term health.
Recent research shows calcium to play an important role in fat loss. Calcium is stored in fat cells and it is believed that the more calcium a fat cell contains the more fat it will burn instead of store. Supplemental calcium in addition to the calcium obtained from food helps give the body the calcium it needs. Vitamin D is needed to absorb calcium. Scivation EssentialFA. contains calcium and vitamin D to ensure you absorb the calcium it gives you.
Magnesium is vital to human physiology and is part of over 300 metabolic reactions/enzymes. Adequate magnesium is needed to sustain normal nerve and muscle functioning as well as energy metabolism and protein synthesis. Magnesium also facilitates calcium absorption. Like calcium, the majority of magnesium in the body is found in bone. A magnesium deficiency can cause fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, and weakness. A high, as well as low, protein intake can inhibit magnesium absorption. Therefore, when on a high protein diet, consuming additional supplementary magnesium helps maintain adequate magnesium levels as well as aids in calcium absorption.
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin involved in many metabolic reactions in the body. Fish Oil supplementation may lower vitamin E levels in the blood. The addition of vitamin E to Scivation EssentialFA prevents this decrease in vitamin E from happening.
The Complete Essentials Blend gives you the minerals and vitamins needed to ensure an adequate calcium intake, which is needed to maintain bone strength and integrity and the proper functioning of cell signaling.
Scivation EssentialFA provides nutrients that your body NEEDS. Taking the supplemental essential fatty acids EPA, DHA, and GLA as well as additional calcium, magnesium, vitamin D, and vitamin E is something everyone will benefit from. Whether you are a competitive bodybuilder, figure competitor, athlete, weekend warrior, or stay-at-home mom looking to improve your health, Scivation EssentialFA is a must have supplement.
