Eicosapentaenoic acid, commonly known as EPA and docosahexaenoic acid, often called DHA, are the two types of omega-3 fatty acids found in fish. Taking a supplement like DHA-500 by Now Foods helps to provide optimum mental performance and visual acuity. It also contributes to improving the neuronal and cognitive function.
DHA plays an essential role in the support of electrical signage and brain function, such as the ability to learn and to memorise. In fact, 30% of our brain consists of DHA acids. EPA (although not so important) also contributes to brain function, increasing blood flow and influencing the hormones and immune system.
EPA and DHA can help to keep cholesterol in the blood at healthy levels, reducing harmful fats such as trigylcerides and increasing the density of good cholesterol. The consumption of DHA-500 can improve the health of the arteries and reduce the amount of accummulated plaque.
Both EPA and DHA can lower blood pressure and can also be beneficial for people who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis. Although EPA and DHA will not halt the progress of rheumatoid arthritis, they can reduce the inflammation associated with the illness and can also reduce the symptoms.
DHA plays a very important role in foetal development, early childhood and old age. High concentrations of DHA are found in the brain and increase by some 300-500% in the brain of a baby during the last trimester of pregnancy. Taking DHA-500 by Now Foods during pregnancy can be beneficial for the development of the foetus's brain. The elderly should also take EPA and DHA, given that as we age our bodies form less DHA and EPA, which can lead to less mental acuity and harm our cognitive function. Taking EPA and DHA can also help with mental abnormalities such as Alzheimer's and dementia.
