EPA and DHA are 2 of the main active ingredients in fish oil.

The following research included a total of 40 studies with 135,267 participants (Bernasconi AA, et.al., 2020). The researcher investigated different cardiovascular outcomes as they related to intake of EPA and DHA. The studies were all randomized with control groups.


The researchers stated that supplementation with EPA and DHA is an effective lifestyle strategy for cardiovascular disease prevention.

The effects of EPA and DHA supplementation were dose dependent indicating that higher doses produced better results.

Fish oil is more stable and better absorbed when it comes in a triglyceride form.

The Better Fish Oil comes in the form of triglycerides which offers better stability to the fatty acids and prevents breakdown and oxidation.

  • The anti-inflammatory effects of Omega 3 fatty acids are well known. Most people that eat a western diet can benefit from increasing the intake of Omega 3 fatty acid since their diet usually contains too much Omega 6 from vegetable oils and saturated fat from dairy and other animal sources.
