Health Benefits And Uses Of Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA)

Support for Heart Health

Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) is an omega-3 fatty acid that is also known as icosapentaenoic acid and timnodonic acid. Its chemical structure is 20:5(n-3), which indicates that an EPA molecule is a chain of 20 carbon atoms with 5 double bonds. The first double bond is on the third carbon atom from the omega end.

The most significant dietary source of EPA is fatty fish such as herring, mackerel, menhaden, salmon and sardines. These fish don’t biosynthesize EPA, which is actually produced by plankton that the fish eat. EPA then becomes more concentrated in fish the higher up the food chain they are. Microalgae are the primary plant source of EPA in humans, and they are also the most important commercial source of EPA. Humans can biosynthesize EPA from alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), although this process is much less efficient than simply absorbing it from food.

EPA is a precursor for several substances that are important in human nutrition, especially the fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Additional substances that require EPA include leukotriene-5, thromboxane-3 and prostaglandin-3, which affect the aggregation of platelets in the blood. EPA also has direct biochemical uses, many of which involve joint conditions. It may also be able to support against low moods.

Uses and Benefits of EPA

Many people take EPA fatty acid supplements to support good heart health. Additional uses of EPA include support for joint health, weight management and child development.

Signs You May Need EPA

An EPA deficiency can cause many specific symptoms due to the large number of functions it performs. The most common general signs that you may need an EPA supplement include chronic pain, joint discomfort and fatigue, especially when they don’t have an obvious cause. A compromised immune system is also a sign that you may need to supplement your EPA intake. Specific signs of an EPA deficiency often include hair loss, dry skin, eczema, poor circulation and mood swings.
