WHAT SCIENTISTS SAY ABOUT DPA OMEGA-3

Long-chain omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids and healthy ageing

A study published in the British Medical Journal found an association between higher blood levels of the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids EPA, DPA, and DHA and “healthy aging.” The authors concluded their findings support guidelines for increased dietary consumption of long-chain omega-3s in older adults.


More omega-3, fewer respiratory events

Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (DHA+EPA+DPA) possess properties that may be protective in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Using the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA), researchers hypothesized that higher plasma levels of n-3 PUFAs would be associated with a slower progression of percent emphysema on CT, a slower decline in lung function, and a lower risk of chronic lower respiratory disease (CLRD) events.


Harvard scholars have found that Omega-3 may increase brain volumes in infants

Scholars at Harvard Medical School and Boston Children’s Hospital have suggested that maternal dietary intake of Omega-3 fatty acids correlates positively with regional brain volumes in 1-month-old term infants.Omega-3 fatty acids remained significantly correlated with infant brain volumes after subsetting to the 54 infants who were exclusively breastfed, but retinol and vitamin B12 did not.
