What does EPA and DHA do for You?

by Wellica Admin 15 Mar 2022

What does EPA and DHA do for You?

The three main omega-3 fatty acids are (ALA), (EPA), and (DHA). ALA is found mainly in plant oils . DHA and EPA are found in fish. Getting them from foods and supplements is the only way to increase levels of these omega-3 fatty acids in your body.

Omega-3s are important components of the membranes that surround each cell in your body. DHA levels are especially high in retina (eye), brain, and sperm cells.

Functions

Omega-3s have many functions in your heart, blood vessels, lungs, immune system, and endocrine system (the network of hormone-producing glands).

Would you say that omega-3 fatty acids are essential nutrients for human health and welfare? Absolutely.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death each year in the US. This is why Omega's are more important now than they've been ever before. Omegas while they are fats themselves, help your cardiovascular system reduce triglycerides in the blood as well as built up plaque that can accumulate there over time.

Foods to get EPA and DHA

For most of us, eating EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids is the exception rather than the rule. A lot of the time you have to force yourself to eat them rather than actually wanting to.

But these days you can find these essential nutrients in omega-3 fortified foods and supplements.

The main type you need is found in fish oil, such as salmon. There are other types of fish-liver oils, and the process some seafood is cooked in affects the flavor and quality of these oils.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
