A Comprehensive Assessment of Omega-3 Fatty Acids on Human Health and Well-Being

Project Overview

Omega-3 fatty acids are long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids that can be consumed via an oral supplement or eating oily fish such as salmon. Studies in recent decades have identified docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) as the particular omega-3 fatty acids responsible in helping prevent cardiovascular disease, stroke, cancer, as well as have the potential to reduce inflammation induced by diseases and exercise. Since many of these studies have examined the combined effects of DHA and EPA, the research team will conduct a comprehensive assessment of the independent effects of DHA and EPA on human health and well-being, including metabolic and cardiovascular health, as well as exercise responses.
