EPA and DHA are essential fatty acids that can not be produced by the body. EPA and DHA play an important role in many biological processes and the prevention of numerous chronic health conditions. EPA and DHA act as anti-inflammatories, support healthy brain function and may help reduce cholesterol and blood pressure. Studies have also shown that EPA and DHA can help inhibit the development of plaque and blood clots. EPA and DHA also are important for nerve functioning, as they help maintain cell membranes and support communication between nerve cells. They also help increase the levels of calcium in the body and reduce tenderness and stiffness in joints.
In adults, EPA and DHA deficiency can lead to fatigue, poor memory, poor circulation, depression, dry skin and heart problems. EPA and DHA deficiency in infants during pregnancy can lead to severe nervous system and vision impairment.
