About EPA and DHA
EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are long-chain omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (O-3s) that are abundant in fish, shellfish, and some algae and genetically engineered plants. The body needs O-3s to develop and function optimally in every stage of life.
There are more than 30,000 published studies on EPA and DHA, including more than 3,700 human clinical trials. The vast body of science associated with O-3s supports consumption for overall wellness, including heart, brain and eye health.
GOED recommends consuming 500mg of EPA and DHA per day for general health, and higher quantities for specific life stages or health conditions. Most of the global population consumes significantly less EPA and DHA than recommended. Consumers can learn more about EPA and DHA at AlwaysOmega3s.com
