EPA Fish Oil Supplements - An In Depth Analysis On What Works And What Doesn't In Omega 3's

Author: Vijay K Raisinghani

 

EPA fish oil offers numerous health benefits for our body's health and vitality. But the importance of DHA Omega 3s cannot be underestimated. Find out the expert facts on what you should look out for in the most effective EPA fish oil supplements in this article.

EPA and DHA are long chain Omega 3 fatty acids. Out Of the two, DHA plays a more important role in enhanced brain function. This is because a high level of DHA is found in the brain (much higher than in the other organs of the body).

Studies conducted on patients suffering from depression showed significant improvement when they received supplements containing both DHA and EPA fish oil. Scientists and doctors have not fully understood how Omega 3s work, but there is conclusive proof that they offer numerous health benefits.

 
Omega 3 fatty acids are not produced by the body. Thus, they need to be supplemented through external food sources. Doctors suggest DHA and EPA fish oil to be the best supplementation over consuming fish directly because fish meal itself contains high levels of Mercury and other contaminants that poses various health risks.

The best EPA fish oil products are manufactured by companies that use pure or pharmaceutical grade fish oil in the supplements. They use a process of molecular distillation that get rids of all contaminants from the oil.

Omega 3 fatty acids are required in sufficient quantities by our brain, heart, joints and the digestive system. DHA and EPA fish oil supplements are one of the best means of providing the body with a balanced source of Omega 3s.

DHA and EPA are more easily absorbed by the body. ALA Omega 3 is commonly found in flaxseed oil. Our body has to convert ALA into DHA and EPA before it can be used. This conversion does not happen smoothly for a lot of people, especially those with less than optimal health and elderly people.

DHA and EPA fish oil gain an edge over supplements made out of plant-based sources such as flaxseed oil due to this reason. Fish oil is rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA. So our body can absorb them directly and doesn't have to go through the conversion process of ALA into DHA and EPA.

In summary, it is important to remember that both DHA and EPA are essential Omega 3 fatty acids and play a vital role in our body's health and well-being. The best supplements will contain both DHA and EPA fish oil.
