Difference between different Omega 3 Fatty Acids Fish Oils

The MenScience Omega 3 Supplement Formula contains the essential Omega 3 Fatty Acids necessary for human health and not naturally present within the body. Because of this, it is necessary to ingest Omega 3 Fatty Acids from outside sources on a daily basis to maintain good health. Two of the most beneficial Omega 3 Fatty Acids that are easily absorbed and utilized by the body are Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA). They are used by the body to help improve cardiovascular functions and overall heart health, reduce arthritis and inflammation, and play a key role in brain functions associated with vision, development and emotions.

Fish oils are an excellent dietary source of the important omega 3 fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), DPA (docosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). These lipids are particularly beneficial for the healthy function of the heart, brain and nervous system.

Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) is an omega 3 fatty acid. EPA is essential for the regulation of brain functioning, such as cell signalling and neuronal blood flow. EPA also plays an important role in controlling the inflammatory and immune systems.

Docosapentaenoic acid (DPA) is an omega 3 fatty acid beneficial in the prevention of coronary heart disease, reduction in the risk of peripheral arterial disease in smokers and in formation of new blood vessels.

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is an omega 3 fatty acid known to be an essential lipid component in the eye, brain and nervous tissues. It is helps to improve cognitive function in the elderly, concentration in children and infant development amongst many other benefits.
