EPA/DHA

Long-chain omega-3 fatty acids are EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid)

Benefits of EPA / DHA

The body needs omega-3s to develop and function optimally in every stage of life. 

They are known for helping promote especially brain- and cardiovascular health and counter inflammatory factors, which benefits the joints.

What is EPA / DHA?

  • DHA is the primary omega-3 fatty acid in the nervous system, including the brain. 
  • While DHA is metabolized from alpha-linolenic acid in the diet, the conversion is minimal. 
  • This renders a dietary source of DHA and EPA, such as fish oil or an algae source, of vital importance.

Diets that fail to provide enough of the omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) may negatively affect the nervous system. 

The finding could impact the understanding of information-processing deficits.

DHA is an important nutrient for pregnant people, read more about this here on our pregnancy blog post.
