In this section I’ll talk about Omega-3.   So to start off, it’s important to understand that the body makes all fatty acids, except two : omega-6  and omega-3's. These fatty acids are called "the essential fatty acids", and need to be provided. Often, people get too much omega-6 and not enough omega-3 (at a ratio of about 20 to 1). For optimal health, the literature says the ratio should try to be from 1:1 to 4:1.

I’ve found that omega-3 is correlated with better cardiovascular health and increased life span. DHA & EPA are part of omega-3. DHA slows age-related memory loss by replenishing "good", unsaturated fats in the brain. Plus, DHA supports one’s: memory, learning, focus, attention,  brain function, and mood.

As I’ve done my research, I’ve uncovered that EPA offers a number features. EPA helps joint-health by decreasing inflammation, thus curbing joint tenderness and stiffness. Plus, EPA can boost heart health. And, EPA lowers levels of triglycerides by binding to them. And, EPA helps break down dietary fat and cholesterol. These are a number positive of things to consider.

Together, EPA & DHA promotes many parts of one’s total health.
