EPA/DHA A NATURAL SOURCE OF OMEGA3 FATTY ACIDS, EICOSAPENTAENOIC ACID (EPA) AND DOCOSAHEXAENOIC ACID (DHA) FROM COLD WATER FISH
After a child’s birth, omega-3 fatty acids remain important in postnatal neurodevelopment. Fish oils have benefits on the cardiovascular system, such as reduction of platelet aggregation, thus reducing the risk of cardiovascular events.
Through their triglyceride-lowering effect, they assist in the maintenance of a healthy endothelial vascular lining and a reduction of heart dysfunction. While saturated fats have been shown to worsen coronary arrhythmias, omega-3 fish oil has been shown to promote healthy heart rhythm.
Studies have indicated that omega-6 fatty acids can act as stimulators of the development and progression of abnormal cell growth. Omega-3 fatty acids however, have been shown to inhibit these same processes. EPA appears to inhibit cell proliferation, while DHA appears to enhance abnormal cell apoptosis (programmed cell death). Currently the most favorable ratio of omega-3 fatty to omega-6 fatty acids in the diet is 1.8 – 1.9/1.0. Consume about twice the amount of omega-3 fatty acids than omega-6 fatty acids.
The human brain concentrates arachidonic fatty acids (AA) and DHA rapidly during the third trimester and early postnatal period during times of rapid brain growth. Deficiencies of DHA negatively impact visual acuity, neurodevelopment, and behavior. Impulsive behavior has been linked to low levels of omega-3 fatty acids, as well as the severity of depression.
The effect of fish oil on lipids should be evaluated in diabetics. Animal studies have shown that fish oil enhances insulin production, activity, receptor responsiveness and glucose uptake. Fish oil enhances blood sugar regulation. Through its anti-inflammatory effects, fish oil has been shown to be beneficial in the treatment of inflammatory disorders.
Fish and fish oil products can be a source of toxins such as mercury, dioxin, PCBs, etc. Good manufacturing standards are essential for safety.
