About EPA and DHA
What are EPA and DHA omega-3s?
EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are long-chain omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (O-3s) that are abundant in fish, shellfish, and some algae and genetically engineered plants. The body needs EPA & DHA omega-3s to develop and function optimally in every stage of life.
What effects do EPA and DHA consumption have on my health?
There are more than 40,000 published studies on EPA and DHA, including more than 4,000 human clinical trials. The vast body of science associated with omega-3s supports consumption for overall wellness, including heart, brain, eye, and prenatal/maternal health.
How much EPA and DHA do I need every day?
GOED recommends consuming 500 mg of combined EPA and DHA per day for general health, and higher quantities for specific life stages or health conditions. Most of the global population consumes significantly less EPA and DHA than recommended. Shoppers can learn more about EPA and DHA at alwaysomega3s.com.
