    Application EPA is called as “vessel sweeper”. It plays roles in cleaning up blood vessels, therefore preventing the onset of cardiovascular diseases and heart diseases.

    During normal cell turnover or the clean-up of damaged cellular tissues, cell membrane with rich DHA/EPA components is catalytically converted by enzymes to bioactive metabolites like Resolving and Protections, which play roles in resolution of chronic inflammation – the etiology to the onset of a variety of chronic diseases.

    The American Heart Association (AHA) recommended 0.5 to 1g of omega-3 EPA and DHA for individuals with borderline fasting triglyceride levels (150 to 199mg/dL), 1 to 2g for individuals with high fasting-triglyceride levels (200 to 499mg/dL), and 2 to 4g for individuals with very high fasting-triglyceride levels (>500mg/dL). AHA also recommended normal healthy individuals consume a variety of deep sea fish and a daily intake of 1g of omega-3 EPA and DHA for patients with documented coronary heart disease (CHD).
