There are two main types of omega-3 fatty acids found in omega-3 fish oil supplements: EPA and DHA.
You can take a detailed look at what DHA is here, but now it’s the turn of EPA to take the spotlight.
What is EPA Omega-3?
EPA, or eicosapentaenoic acid, is a type of long-chain, unsaturated omega-3 fatty acid – characteristics it shares with DHA (also known as docosahexaenoic acid).
Our bodies cannot produce EPA by themselves, but EPA can have an important physiological effect, which is why many people choose to take omega-3 supplements.
Fish oil produced from cold water fish is one of the main sources of EPA omega-3.
What are the Benefits of EPA?
EPA may affect inflammatory processes, and it’s also proven to contribute to normal heart function, as well as normal blood function.
