Omega 3 EPA and DHA Reduce the Risk of Cardiac Death

Keith D. Bishop, Clinical Nutritionist, B.Sc. Pharmacy, Health Coach - June 10, 2009

  • Scientists recommend the establishment of a Dietary Reference Intake for Omega 3 EPA and DHA to reduce the risk of heart disease. 

Scientists reviewed more than 15 studies and found modest intake of omega 3 eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) reduced the risk of coronary heart disease. They recommend a Dietary Reference Intake (DRI) for EPA and DHA between 250 and 400mg/day.

Omega 3 EPA and DHA reduce the risk of cardiac death.The scientists also found that omega 3 EPA and DHA had promising effects on dementia and cancer.

Natural Care Solution Pearl:
The dosage amount for EPA and DHA are located on your supplement label. Add the amount of EPA and the amount of DHA together to get the total dose. An example is EPA 360 mg + DHA 240 mg = 600 mg.

EPA and DHA supports:
• Cardiovascular Health Including Blood Pressure, Lipids and Clotting
• Reducing Inflammation of Joints and Skin
• Reducing Back and Neck Pain
• Support for Mental Health/Behavior
• Support for the Reduction of Allergic-type Response
• Glucose and Insulin Levels

Higher doses of EPA and DHA offer additional benefits. It takes at least 2,400 mg per day to lower triglycerides.
