Omega EPA contains two essential fatty acids, Omega 3 (EPA) and (DHA), which cannot be synthesized by the organism, but both are part of the integrity of cellular membranes and participate in vital functions of the body. These acids are essential for the appropriate function of the brain that affects vision, coordination, mood and capacity of learning. These fatty acids are termed essential because your body cannot manufacture them by itself, they must come from food or supplemental sources. They are also essential because they are a component of every living cell in the body, and are necessary for rebuilding existing cells and the production of new cells. Fish Oil contains the desired Omega 3 fatty acids in their long chain EPA and DHA forms thereby offering us the health benefits of these PG3 prostaglandin precursors while saving our body the enzymatic steps necessary to process the Alpha-linolenic acid into the more biologically active forms.
