What is EPA, DHA and ETA and How Does It Help Me?

You need to get a variety of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients in your diet for your body to work as it should. You probably know about a lot of them – protein for healthy muscles, calcium for strong bones, vitamin C for your immune system and the health of your skin and gums, vitamin A for eye health, and plenty more. But are you remembering to get enough omega- 3 fatty acids? You need to get a full range of these omega-3 fatty acids in your diet – they contribute to the health and function of every cell in the body.

Getting the recommended amount of these essential omega-3s can help vital organ systems in your body work better and stay healthier. Taking a high-quality omega-3 supplement can help you get all of these good fatty acids that your body requires. EPA, DHA, and ETA are three of the beneficial fatty acids, also known as omega-3s. Each of these fatty acids have benefits for health and well-being:

EPA (eicosapentoenoic acid) – this omega-3 fatty acid is one of the fatty acids that contribute to cell health, respiratory health, good circulation, brain health, and more. Getting enough omega-3s, including EPA, is part of a therapeutic diet and a preventative approach to your health.

DHA (docsahexaenoic acid) – Your brain is partially made up of DHA, and needs it to function. Eating DHA-rich foods and taking MOXXOR® OMEGA-3 supplements can help you improve your brain health. Adequate consumption of DHA is also linked to higher IQ in children, better endurance in athletes, reduced risk of heart disease, and other health benefits.  

ETA (eicosatetraenoic acid) – This fatty acid isn’t found in some common sources of omega-3, but it is found in the green-lipped mussel, which we at MOXXOR have chosen as the source of omega-3 oil for our supplements. ETA along with other omega-3s can help improve overall health.

Though your body needs these omega-3 fatty acids, it can’t make them on its own. They’re not found in vegetables. They’re not found in any land-dwelling animal products. You can get omega-3s by eating fish, shellfish, and kelp. You can get omega-3s through nut oils. And you can get enough omega-3 by taking MOXXOR® OMEGA-3 all-natural supplements.

MOXXOR® OMEGA-3 supplements contain three potent, food-based ingredients: omega-3 oil derived from green-lipped mussels, kiwifruit oil, and sauvignon blanc grapeseed oil. These natural ingredients from sustainable sources give you the full range of omega-3s you need, and free radical-fighting blend of vitamin E and antioxidants.
