Bio EPA / DHA Omega 3 is a dietary supplement that provides a high percentage capsule fish oils are rich in very long chain polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) 420 mg, and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) 280 mg.
EPA and DHA play a major role within the lipid layers of cell membranes and they form a large percentage of the brains grey matter. Essential fatty acids are the building block for many molecules including those that control the bodies inflammatory responses. The chemicals produced from omega-3s are anti-inflammatory compared to those produced by most omega-6s.
DHA and EPA both are very important for normal functioning of human cells. DHA and EPA enter the membranes of cells where they then help cells work and grow properly. DHA and EPA help with many regular cellular processes, like normal development of neurons and their functioning, cell to cell communication, regulation of inflammatory responses in the body and in short, ensuring the electrical stability and metabolism rate in the body. Furthermore, EPA DHA and pregnancy are also closely related, as these acids lower the risk of developing high blood pressure during pregnancy.
The body has a limited ability to manufacture EPA by converting the alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) which is found in flaxseed oil, canola oil or walnuts. ALA is also an omega 3 essential fatty acid; it is the parent fatty acid to EPA.
EPA (Eicosapentaenoic acid) is a major component of fish oil. It is a long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acid of the n-3 or omega-3 type. EPA is an all cis polyunsaturated fatty acid containing 20 carbons and 5 double bonds.
DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid) is an omega-3 fatty acid. It is found in cold water fatty fish and in fish oil supplements, along with eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). There are also vegetarian sources of DHA, which come from seaweed. DHA is essential for the proper functioning of our brains as adults, and for the development of our nervous system and visual abilities during the first 6 months of life. In addition, omega-3 fatty acids are part of a healthy diet that are believed to help lower risk of heart disease. Our bodies naturally produce small amounts of DHA, but we must get the amounts we need from our diet or from supplements. It is also thought that most people in the Western world do not get enough omega-3 fatty acids in their diet.
