Effects of EPA and DHA

In an extensive research program within the framework of the EU Health Claims Regulations, the European Food Safety Authority evaluated the health effects of nutritional supplements and micronutrients based on current state of science.

For many substances, such as probiotic cultures, health claims were not granted due to lack of substances' characterization or lack of scientifically sound evidence for their effects.

In  their evaluation of EPA and DHA, the EFSA came to clear conclusions: based on current research results, EPA and DHA proved to have a very positive effect on the cardiovascular system. And for the first time, the positive effect of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids on the development of brain function and visual acuity was independently confirmed.1
