DHA and EPA lower the risk for cardiovascular disease


DHA and EPA lower the risk for cardiovascular disease



Agro Food Industry Hi Tech 14(3): 14-17



ISSN/ISBN: 1722-6996

This article provides a brief description of n-3 polyenoic fatty acids (PUFA), and on how these essential nutrients are synthesized in the human body. Results of epidemiological investigations regarding the beneficial role of n-3 PUFA (especially eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)) in cardiovascular health, including the potential mechanisms through which EPA and DHA offer cardiac protection, are summarized.
