EPA and DHA are long-chained omega-3 fatty acids that have various documented beneficial effects on health.
EPA and DHA are involved structurally as building blocks and in processes in the heart and cardiovascular system which combined have positive effects on heart health. DHA fatty acids are also unique in having positive effects on the brain and vision.
Non-marine sources of omega-3 include nuts such as walnuts, pecans and hazelnuts; seeds such as chia and flax; vegetable oils such as olive, canola and soya bean; dairy products; breads and cereals; meat and eggs. However, the concentration of the beneficial omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA is not as large as in marine sources.
The National health service (NHS) advises us to eat fish at least twice a week. If you eat less, which studies show that many of us do, it’s wise to top up with an omega-3 supplement.
