What are Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids in Liquid Fish Oil?
The two key fatty acids are eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). EPA and DHA are essential fatty acids, essential meaning they can’t be produced by the body and, therefore, must be supplied through our diet. Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) is a longchain omega-3 fatty acid that inhibits the formation of arachidonic acid (AA) Arachidonic Acid (AA) is a long-chain omega-6 fatty acid that is the immediate precursor to inflammation Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) a long-chain omega-3 fatty acid is critical for brain function. Manufacturing the Fish Oil It’s very difficult to remove the toxins out of fish oil. That’s why most fish oils sold in health-food stores and supermarkets should be considered not purified. Since the contaminants in fish are oil-soluble, all the toxic contaminants are concentrated in the crude fish oil. Not a very appealing thought if you are taking fish oil for its “health” benefits.
