How Does EPA + DHA Help Support My Heart Health?

A beneficial role

Large scale trials have demonstrated the beneficial effects of EPA and DHA for cardiovascular health.

There is scientific evidence that EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids support heart health so the FDA permitted a qualified health claim, which states that "supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease."

Am I getting enough EPA + DHA?

This is a question you can ask your doctor. It depends on your diet. If you are vegetarian, or don't care for fish, you may not be getting enough. Supplements can help fill the gaps.

"I try to follow a diet low in fat (it can be difficult) and exercise. This whole life changing event has not been easy but I am taking one day at a time."
