Bill Harris, PhD, FAHA and Marie Spano, MS, RD, CSCS, CSSD discuss omega-3 fatty acids. Decades of research have uncovered many health benefits of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, specifically eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). EPA and DHA are both essential building blocks for tissue structures and important biological mediators in health and disease, which is why the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, as well as recommendations from health advocacy groups around the globe, recommend eating foods rich in EPA and DHA as part of an overall healthy eating pattern. Yet, there is increasing debate about the cardiovascular benefits of EPA and DHA when taken in supplement form. This webinar reviews the scientific evidence about EPA and DHA and its association with cardiovascular health and disease risk reduction.
