EPA and DHA are omega-3 fatty acids that are found in fish oil. Consuming these regularly supports heart and cardiovascular health, maintains healthy eye function, and reduces mild joint inflammation and reduces the symptoms of mild arthritis.
It also helps to maintain healthy blood fats, supports brain health, and cognitive function.
Plus, ensuring an adequate intake of omega-3 DHA during pregnancy is important for the normal development of baby’s brain, nervous system and eyesight.
The body does not produce omega-3, we get them from the foods we eat, mainly fish. If you don’t eat fish 2-3 times a week, fish oil supplements are another rich source of omega-3.
