About EPA and DHA
EPA-DHA is an essential fatty acid. EPA stands for eicosapentaenoic acid and
DHA stands for docosahexaenoic acid. Both are essential omega 3 fatty acids.
These fatty acids can be found in cold water fish. EPA and DHA are highly
unsaturated because they contain 6 and 5 double bonds on their structural chain.
Polyunsaturated fats, such as these, are often referred to as “good fats”
because they are beneficial, as opposed to the potentially detrimental saturated
EPA and DHA should be considered as vital nutrients as they must be taken to
maintain the health of the brain and retina (in the eyes). In fact, DHA is one
of the main building blocks of the tissue that is found within the brain and
retina. Some recent studies have indicated that taking DHA may actually be
essential for maintaining normal retinal function, since so much of the retina
is composed of this fatty acid. DHA assists in forming neural transmitters,
which are essential to proper brain function.
In recent years, many studies have been done to illustrate how EPA and DHA
can work together to halt or help manage a number of chronic diseases. All of
this research is in addition to the vast array of studies that have been done to
show the link between reduced cardiovascular disease and supplementation with
EPA and DHA: A link that is now widely accepted.
DHA also plays a vital role in human growth and intellectual development. It
is essential for fetal development and development from infancy through old age.
In fact, during the last trimester of pregnancy DHA levels increase by 300 to
500 percent in the brain of the infant. Because of this, many health care
practitioners recommend that pregnant mothers supplement with DHA to help the
infant’s brain develop. When we reach our senior years, it again becomes
essential to supplement with EPA-DHA. This is because our bodies produce less of
these fatty acids as we age. The reduction of fatty acids without adequate
supplementation can lead to a loss of mental focus and cognitive function. Some
studies also indicate that EPA-DHA may help ward off Alzheimer’s disease and
EPA-DHA also acts as a source of energy, insulates the body against heat
loss, provides cushioning for the organs and tissues and prevents the skin from
becoming dry and flaky.
Since EPA-DHA is an essential fatty acid, most people can benefit from taking
this EPA-DHA Extra Strength supplement by Metrogenics. Those who do not include
a lot of seafood in their diets can especially benefit.
