The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition published two clinical studies, one in 1990 and one in 2013, which explained the effects of Omega-3 in humans. In the 1990 article, 27 participants were observed over 20 weeks. At the end of the 20 weeks, Omega-3 reduced the amount of unhealthy fat in the subjects’ bloodstreams and increased the amount of health fatty acids. Additionally, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) levels greatly increased in the participants.
Omega-3 has been popular for a few years now and is known for its benefits to cardiovascular health, joint pain relief and cognitive support. The primary active compounds in Omega-3 are Eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic (DHA). Omega-3 works by lowering the amounts of unhealthy fat in the blood stream and improving memory and reaction time.
