NOW® Omega-7 Softgels contain molecularly-distilled fish oil that provides 224 mg Palmitoleic Acid, a level significantly higher than most Sea Buckthorn Omega-7 products. The Omega-7 fatty acid Palmitoleic Acid is a monounsaturated fatty acid (MUFA) present in all body tissues, but with higher concentrations found in the skin, liver and mucous membranes. People who consume a diet low in saturated fat and high in the monounsaturated fatty acids found abundantly in fish, olive oil, vegetables, and other foods generally enjoy good health. A connection between the type of diet a person consumes and their body fat composition has been established.
Studies show that Palmitoleic Acid is involved in a broad range of body functions including cell differentiation and proliferation, fat synthesis and storage, inter-organ signaling and intercellular trafficking.* Current research is focusing on its role in glucose and liver fatty acid metabolism, as well as its effects on pancreatic ß-cell function.* Its mechanism of action is different from that of Omega-3 fatty acids and it has been suggested that dietary Omega-7 may help to maintain the proper regulation of internally synthesized palmitoleic acid, which is obtained through the biosynthesis of palmitic acid, the most common fatty acid in nature and a common constituent of meats, cheeses and other dairy products.*

Creatine Monohydrate 1,200 mg
NOW® Sports Creatine Monohydrate is a naturally occurring compound found in the human body and obtained in the diet primarily from meat and fish. Creatine is a popular supplement among active individuals because of its ability to serve as an energy reservoir, especially during intense physical exertion.* During short, intense bursts of activity, the body breaks down adenosine triphosphate (ATP) into adenosine diphosphate (ADP) and phosphate for energy. Creatine helps the body convert ADP back to ATP, providing greater amounts of ATP for energy, which may increase short-term endurance and strength.* Our smaller 1,200 mg tablets replace our 1,500 mg formula, which required a tablet size too large for many individuals to comfortably take.
