The Omega-3 fats eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) have been widely studied and shown to support cardiovascular and brain health.* In the 1970s, researchers began to realize that essential fatty acids from fish oil were beneficial to human health when it was discovered that Greenland Eskimos’ high fat diet from cold water fish was the source of their high incidence of cardiovascular health.*

DHA: Not Just For The Brain*
DHA is generally regarded as the brain-healthy Omega-3, as it is selectively incorporated into the nerves, retina, and gray matter of the brain - all tissues responsible for nerve transmission.* In fact, DHA makes up about 40% of the PUFA in the brain and roughly 60% in the retina. It’s absolutely essential to developing brains and the primary reason fish oil is recommended during pregnancy.* Mechanistically, its effects result from a powerful impact on the fluidity and function of cell membranes.* DHA is also a precursor to neuroprotectin D1, which has broad protective activity in the brain.
In addition to critical brain functionality, DHA has been found to have effects throughout the body.* It’s now beginning to be understood that DHA plays complementary roles to EPA in the cardiovascular system.* For instance, studies in both Japanese and Caucasian males have demonstrated a more potent effect for DHA than EPA on maintaining blood-vessel health.
EPA: Not Just For The Heart*
EPA is generally classified as the heart-healthy Omega-3.* And there is an overwhelming amount of research to support the beneficial effects of EPA for cardiovascular health.* Other effects include balancing blood-lipids, supporting blood-vessel health, and promoting healthy blood pressure.
Yet, similar to the situation with DHA, accumulating evidence suggests that EPA is more important than previously surmised for other bodily systems. In fact, recent research on mood and behavior has found that EPA may be more important than DHA in mood modification.*

My husband started taking this a few months ago at his doctor's request. His "bad" cholesterol was rising as was his blood pressure. He just had his yearly physical and his BP AND cholesterol readings were great! He had, also, cut back on sugar and refined products. True he made a number of other improvements in his lifestyle, but I do think taking this product helped him the most. It has none of the "fishy" smell, nor associated belching of fish oil, like some of the other products he has taken.
I like this brand of fish oil the best. It does not stink like some do and it has a pleasant fragrance and it seems to work okay.
