Adequate levels of EPA and DHA are essential to maintaining our cardiovascular system in good health.
Different scientific studies on the oil of ocean water fish have demonstrated that EPA and DHA reduce the “bad” cholesterol (the low density lipoprotein cholesterol LDL) and raise the “good” cholesterol (the high density lipoprotein HDL). These fatty acids assist in lowering blood pressure by helping to reduce arterial constriction.
They also help lower blood fat, known as triglycerides, which if elevated can present significant risk for heart disease. EPA and DHA have also been shown to reduce risk of inappropriate blood clotting that can also lead to a stroke or a pulmonary embolism.
