Omega-3s are essential in controlling inflammation and without adequate intake, cellular inflammation increases which leads to an increased risk of several diseases in addition to influencing brain function. If you want to have optimal... more
MORE OMEGA 3 AND LESS OMEGA 6 TO ACHIEVE BALANCE

The purpose of EPA is to help reduce cellular inflammation, because EPA is an inhibitor of the enzyme delta-5-desaturase (D5D) that produces AA * (1), the greater the intake of EPA, the lower the production of AA. DHA is not an inhibitor of this enzyme.
The var... more
