EPA Omega-3

EPA is an omega-3 fatty acid essential for the efficient functioning of the nervous system. It helps to maintain proper blood flow in the vessels that supply the brain, providing benefits for cognitive functions. What is more, this compound contributes to improved mood and stress resilience. EPA is also able to regulate fat metabolism, so it has a positive influence on the heart.

EPA extract 25% | Omega-3 fish oil

Properties: Omega-3 fatty acids are considered healthy fats and there are plenty of reasons why. After all, they are actually necessary for the proper development of the nervous system, but they also show multidirectional, beneficial influence on overall health. Interestingly, the human body is capable of producing omega-3s, however, in too small quantities to cover our daily needs for acids of this group. For this reason, they should be supplied with food or properly balanced supplementation. Even though there are 11 compounds belonging to omega-3, from the perspective of our bodies, the most important are 3, namely: ALA, DHA and EPA. Eicosapentaenoic acid, which is the full name of EPA, primarily helps to take care of the nervous system. Thanks to research studies, it has been proven that it can bring benefits to brain structures related to memory. It can also improve the ability to focus attention. What’s more, EPA facilitates blood flow in the vessels that supply oxygen and essential nutrients to the brain, providing neurons with a good environment to work efficiently. This compound plays an important role in terms of mental well-being, as it reduces nervous tension and enhances stress resilience.

It is worth noting that high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, including EPA, are key to maintaining proper fat metabolism. For this reason, this compound can be treated as a valuable support in the prevention of atherosclerosis and other cardiovascular diseases. In fact, research shows that omega-3 acids regulate triglyceride and cholesterol levels in the blood. Moreover, they increase the sensitivity of cells to insulin, thus lowering the risk of developing diabetes and other metabolic disorders. Among the health-promoting properties of EPA we should certainly highlight the beneficial influence on the immune system. This compound exhibits immunomodulating effects. It prevents an excessive immune response, as it facilitates the production of resolvins that counteract chronic inflammation, including those associated with neurodegenerative changes. EPA proves to be an excellent support not only for the smooth functioning of the nervous system, but also protects the brain from harmful factors and helps to keep it in a good shape.

Occurrence: The most valuable sources of omega-3 fatty acids, including EPA, are marine algae and fish such as mackerel, salmon, trout, sardines or herring. Eicosapentaenoic acid can also be found in seafood, including shrimp and oysters.

Biochemistry: Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) is an omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid. The omega-3 group also includes docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). The EPA chain consists of 20 carbon atoms and five double bonds. This compound can be produced in the human body, but only in small amounts. Therefore, it must be supplied with food. Daily requirement for omega-3 fatty acids is 250-500 mg of EPA with DHA, although when dealing with deficiencies, considerably higher amounts may be recommended. 

EPA has many important functions in the human body, as it promotes the proper development of the fetus, and supports a good functioning of the nervous system. It lowers cholesterol and triglyceride levels, but additionally, reduces the risk of developing diabetes and insulin resistance. At the same time, it plays an important role in regulating the menstrual cycle of women. This compound exhibits anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It helps to maintain hair, skin and nails in good condition.

Omega-3 acids (which include EPA) as well as omega-6 and omega-9 acids belong to the group of polyunsaturated fatty acids. Their molecules have a similar, very complex structure. However, they are distinguished, depending on where the double bond occurs in their carbon chain. When it is located at the third carbon atom from the end, the compound belongs to the omega-3 group. And if the double bond occurs at the sixth or ninth carbon atom, the compound is considered omega-6 or omega-9, respectively.

Fun fact: In the 1970s, Danish researchers Jørn Dyerberg and Hans Olaf Bang went on an expedition to Greenland, as they became interested in the fact that Inuit people rarely struggle with cardiovascular disease. After examining blood samples from the island’s indigenous people, the researchers confirmed that one of major factors promoting a good heart condition is a diet rich in fish, which provides large amounts of omega-3 fatty acids.

How does EPA extract 25% | Omega-3 fish oil work?

Supports well-being and stress resilience: EPA benefits not only brain condition, but also mental comfort. Scientific findings indicate that doses of 1 g per day can improve the condition of people suffering from severe depression. Effectiveness of EPA is compared with substances from the group of SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors). Moreover, it has been observed that this omega-3 fatty acid is able to reduce norepinephrine levels in the brain by up to 30%. This is associated with reduced agitation, anxiety and irritability. Thus, EPA can improve stress resilience, especially in the long term.

Supports the nervous system: The results of scientific studies have shown that EPA has a beneficial effect on the condition and work of the brain. This is because it affects blood flow in the vessels supplying the brain, which results in better oxygenation and nourishment of this organ. It also reduces the risk of stroke. During clinical trials, regular intake of EPA has been proven to prevent decrease of brain mass and activity in the elderly, as well as atrophy of the hippocampus and amygdala. In younger people, on the other hand, it can support concentration or alleviate ADHD symptoms. It also has a positive effect on working memory (regardless of dopamine levels) and episodic memory.

Regulates body weight: During studies with animal models, it was observed that EPA intake is associated with a decrease in body fat. One of the possible explanations is the influence of this compound on leptin and adipokine levels. The former acts as a satiety hormone, and the latter is involved in regulating metabolism. Although research in this field still needs verification, scientists speculate that EPA intensifies metabolism by increasing mitochondrial activity. It also increases the bioenergetic flexibility of the body, i.e. it facilitates the change of energy source from glucose to fat. All these properties make it easier to get rid of unnecessary fat tissue.

Improves overall health: EPA, just like all omega-3 fatty acids, brings benefits for the entire body. Scientific results have shown that it regulates levels of triglycerides in blood, which has a positive influence on cardiovascular health. It reduces inflammation by decreasing the secretion of pro-inflammatory cytokines. At the same time, it supports acquired immunity – it increases the sensitivity of B lymphocytes to inflammatory factors and facilitates the release of antibodies. In addition, it can increase the sensitivity of the cells to insulin, which is beneficial during insulin resistance and diabetes. Mature ladies will most likely appreciate its ability to reduce the occurrence of hot flashes during menopause. All these properties show that EPA helps to maintain a good condition of the body.
