The importance of being Omega-3

 
 
 

Do you know Omega-3 fatty acids? Do you want to know why they are the source of much talk?

If so, in this space, that we hope to share with you, we would like to introduce EPA and DHA (both of them Omega-3 fatty acids) to you and talk about the major role they play in the development and maintenance of our health.

EPA and DHA (whose full names are eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid) intake has demonstrated benefits on blood pressure, heart rate and triglycerides level; they have been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties and have been associated with fetal development, cardiovascular function, and Alzheimer’s disease. DHA also plays a major role in development of the brain and retina during fetal development and the first two years of life. And both are essential for healthy aging. They seem interesting, don’t they?

However, we must always bear in mind that not all omega-3s are equal. We will explain you the importance to the health of its origin, extraction process and level of concentration of EPA and DHA.
