FISH OIL (EPA)

Untapped Medicinal Potential

Fish oil primarily contains two types of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Both compounds have health benefits for the skin and heart. Additionally, fish oil helps the brain in treating mild memory loss and depression. For medicinal, dietary supplement, or pharmaceutical-grade applications, a high level of purity is required that can be realized with preparative chromatography.
