Effects / properties​


Polyunsaturated fat is healthy fat
The bodies of both men and animals depend on fat. Fat transports the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K within the body. Fat protects the internal organs. Fat is also a concentrated source of energy.

There is general agreement that long-chain Omega 3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA (polyunsaturated fat), are healthy fats - unlike saturated fat, which increases the overall cholesterol level and the risk of sclerosis and cardiovascular diseases. Polyunsaturated fat simultaneously reduces inflammation and is thought to have a beneficial effect on a large number of inflammation-related diseases.


EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) is a polyunsaturated fatty acid that is thought to have a beneficial effect on both human and animal health due to EPA's ability to lower inflammation. EPA is also found in breast milk.

DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) also belongs to the family of essential Omega 3 fatty acids. Adding DHA to your diet can reduce blood triglycerides (the majority of all fat consists of triglycerides), thereby lowering the risk of cardiovascular diseases. DHA is a major fatty acid in sperm, brain and retinal phospholipids (special lipids which are a major component of cell membranes). A low DHA level leads to a reduced serotonin (neurotransmitter) level in the brain, and connections have been found between a low DHA level and several diseases, such as ADHD, Alzheimer's disease and depression.
