Beyond omega-3

Zooca® Lipids

Zooca® Lipids

Zooca® Lipids is the newest generation of omega 3 and is the natural lipid extract from the tiny zooplankton Calanus finmarchicus, an ultra-sustainable resource from the North Atlantic Ocean. Besides being eco-friendly, Zooca® Lipids composition of natural, marine nutrients has shown benefits beyond what is expected from marine oils.
Through its unique combination of raw nutrients in the form of liquid wax, Zooca® Lipids demonstrates more potency and benefits than other marine oils. Zooca® Lipids is not only good for your health and wellbeing – it also comes with a good conscience.
Evidence of exciting additional benefits is also clear. Solid scientific documentation shows that Zooca® Lipids may enhance muscle mass and function, body composition, pumping capacity of the heart, and exhibits a potent anti-inflammatory effect.

What makes it unique?

Graphical overview of the diverse composition of Zooca® Lipids, as a result of the gentle manufacturing process
Policosanols: The only commercially available marine source. Calanus oil contains unsurpassed levels of ergogenic policosanols, enhancing muscle mass and functions.
Stearidonic acid (SDA): Potent anti-inflammatory effect and metabolic signaling
Astaxanthin: Highest content of all marine oils making it the most potent antioxidant natural marine oil in the market. Gives the Calanus its dark red color, and protects the oil from UV radiation
High share of metabolic fatty acids, EPA og DHA: which all are involved in anti-inflammatory actions in the body

A special combination

The special combination of the three omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids SDA, EPA and DHA are due to the phytoplankton fatty acids being incorporated into the copepods’ storage lipids. Therefore, the fatty acids found in calanus oil are largely reflected by the fatty acid composition of the phytoplankton. The high content of the long-chain monounsaturated fatty acids and their corresponding long-chain policosanols in calanus oil are the results of the copepods’ own synthesis.

As Zooca® Lipids is a non-refined lipid extract from a natural source, it contains a plethora of different lipid components such as astaxanthin, policosanols and more than 15 different fatty acids, as illustrated in the figure.

Here’s how it works

The liquid wax in Zooca® Lipids contains unsurpassed levels of ergogenic policosanols, enhancing muscle mass and function. These lipids are digested in the distal intestine, giving a slow but complete uptake, which also allows for activation of GPR120 receptors. This receptor activation supports favourable body composition by regulating the metabolism of sugar and fat, resulting in metabolic effects like enhanced insulin sensitivity and reduction of intra-abdominal- and liver fat deposition.

In addition to policosanols, mono- and polyunsaturated fatty acids in the potent form of liquid wax C. finmarchicus contains high levels of the astaxanthin one of the most powerful antioxidants found in nature. This antioxidant gives Zooca® Lipids the dark red colour. Astaxanthin protects the zooplankton from UV radiation whilst present in the surface layers of the ocean.

Zooca® Lipids also contains the polyunsaturated fatty acids SDA, EPA and DHA which all are involved in anti-inflammatory actions in the body.
