Pure Omega 3: In-Depth Information
Omega-3s are “good fats” found in every cell in the human body. They are considered conditionally essential because they arenʼt produced by the body, so they must be obtained from foods or supplementation. The most widely researched omega-3s are eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). EPA and DHA supplements are commonly referred to as “fish oils” because coldwater fish such as mackerel, menhaden, salmon, and tuna are major sources. Other common sources include calamari, krill, and other marine animals.*
Omega-3s and Cardiovascular Health
A number of studies of endogenous fatty acid profiles suggest that higher concentrations of omega-3s decrease the risk of a number of concerns that have been associated with cardiovascular disease development—including abdominal obesity, higher liver fat content, and elevated blood lipids. *[1,2,3,4]
Omega-3 fatty acids (including EPA and DHA) have been examined in previous clinical and epidemiological research that has shown they may: *[4-15]
- Keep cell membranes fluid, flexible, and permeable to function properly
- Reduce certain pro-inflammatory signals and activities (e.g.,oxidative stress)
- Regulate genetic expression in favor of health
- Promote healthy blood flow and decrease the growth rate of atherosclerotic plaque
- Reduce LDL cholesterol levels
- Increase HDL cholesterol levels
- Reduce triglyceride levels
- Lower blood pressure (slightly)
- Decrease the risk of fatal arrhythmias
- Decrease the chance of stroke
Though EPA and DHA have individually shown to beneficially influence certain functions to a greater extent than the other, the bulk of research focuses on their combined use to support overall cardiovascular health. Their complementary effects also suggest their combined use to support cardiovascular health. *
