Typical diets in developed countries deliver large amounts of saturated fatty acids and the polyunsaturated omega-6 linoleic and arachidonic acids and low levels of omega-3 fatty acids. Throughout evolution‚ humans were accustomed to diets providing roughly equal amounts of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. However‚ during the last 200 years‚ the ratio of dietary omega-6:omega-3 fatty acids increased from about 1:1 to 20-25:1. Leading health professionals now recommend a ratio between 4:1 and 10:1.
A healthy balance of dietary omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids appears to be a prerequisite for normal immune function. Dietary linoleic acid (18:2 omega- 6) is a precursor to arachidonic acid (20:4) which in turn is a precursor for pro-inflammatory prostaglandin E2 and leukotriene B4‚ and platelet aggregating thromboxane A2. The omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA provide a natural counterbalance‚ because they serve as precursors for the anti-inflammatory prostaglandins E1 and E3‚ and decrease the formation of prostaglandin E2 and thromboxane A2.
Among other factors‚ sufficient dietary levels of EPA‚ DHA or other omega-3 fatty acids are also important in the regulation of normal blood lipoprotein and healthy cholesterol metabolism.
Opti-EPA™ is a more convenient source of EPA and DHA than regular marine fish oils for those who would like to supplement their diets with higher amounts of these important omega-3 fatty acids.
