The omega-3 fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are abundant in the retina, the adrenal glands, the testes and especially brain and nerve cells. In fact, DHA is one of the most abundant fatty acids in the brain, contributing to improved cognitive function and a positive mood.
EPA and DHA help improve blood vessel function and reduce blood thickening platelet aggregation. They also help clear the arteries of fibrinogen and other substances that promote atherosclerosis. EPA can help maintain healthy triglyceride and cholesterol levels as well as decreasing elevated blood pressure.
In addition, these fatty acids are anti-inflammatory and help balance pro-inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids that are abundant in the modern diet. It is now believed that inflammation is a causative factor in virtually all chronic diseases, so reducing systemic inflammation is important. We make the anti-inflammatory hormones PG3 prostaglandins and leukotrienes from EPA, so it may help to reduce the risk of stroke, heart attack, pulmonary embolism and other dangerous inflammation-driven conditions. Research indicates benefits for autoimmune diseases and asthma, too.
