EPA and DHA are omega-3 fatty acids, the essential fats. Omega-3 fats play key roles in behavior and brain development in growing years, and heart, brain, joint and vascular function and maintenance in mature years.* The importance of omega-3 fats in heart and vascular health, as well as joint conditions, is well documented, yet most Americans underconsume these healthy fats.* The American Heart Association now recommends regular consumption of omega-3 fats from fish or fish oil supplements. Research also shows that omega-3 fats, as little as 1,000 mg of EPA per day, measurably improves mood.* Furthermore, clinical trials using fish oil supplements have been shown to increase focus and attention in children with behavior concerns.* EthylEPA delivers EPA and DHA from cold-water fish in a 3:2 ratio (300 mg EPA: 200 mg DHA per capsule). The small amount of vitamin E added is to maintain freshness and stability.
