EPA (eicosapentanoic acid) and DHA (docosahexanoic acid) are two
omega-3 fatty acids found in fish and fish oil supplements. There have
been numerous clinical trials and studies performed on the health
benefits of EPA and DHA. To date, omega-3 fatty acids have been
shown to prevent primary and secondary cardiovascular events, reduce
triglycerides, improve hypertension, and help improve issues associated
with Metabolic Syndrome. They have also shown to be effective antiinflammatory
agents and have beneficial effects on mood disorders.
Several reports suggest that maternal supplementation of fish oils or
DHA alone during the third trimester and while breast-feeding can
improve cognitive development in newborns, and improve sleep
patterns. School aged children have also been shown to have
increased mood and concentration when supplemented with omega-3
The American Heart Association recommends patients with
documented Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) consume about 1 gram of
EPA + DHA per day, preferably from fatty fish, while patients who need
to lower triglycerides consume 2-4 grams of EPA + DHA per day
provided as a dietary supplement under a physician’s care. The FDA
has also recognized the importance of omega-3 fatty acids like EPA
and DHA, and allows the following health claim to be placed on fish oil
products: “Supportive but not conclusive research shows that
consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk
of coronary heart disease. One serving of [name of product] provides
[x] grams of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids”.
