What are EPA and DHA?
- EPA – Eicosapentaenoic acid: is a special type of fatty acid that the body needs to control immune function and inflammation. The body cannot make it. It has to be obtained from diet or supplementation.
- DHA – Docosahexaenoic acid: Also an omega-3 fatty acid. DHA is the most abundant essential fatty acid in the brain and retina. It is also needed for the control of inflammation.
Chronic Inflammation – The Heart of Disease
The #1 reason why I recommend using Omega Heal as a supplement in the diet is to help with regulation of inflammation. Hundreds of studies show that the right balance of this vital fat is crucial to disease prevention.
