DOCOSAPENTAENOIC ACID…say that 5 times fast!

I am sure you’ve heard of DHA and EPA….but have you ever heard of DPA? Have you ever tried saying docosapentaenoic acid 5 times fast?

DPA is a thrid essential fatty acid that is mainly found in seal oil omega-3. DPA has many health benefits. It is an anti-inflammatory, it is 10 times more effective than EPA at repairing vessel walls, and it makes DHA more effective!!

I found this interesting article when doing some research about DPA:

I find it strange that so many studies have been performed using omega-3 containing DHA and EPA and very few have looked at the benefits of DPA…
