Fish Oil for a Healthy Gut
EPAand well-documented for its ability to protect intestinal mucosa and reduce oxidative damage in the gut.2 A recent experimental study published in the Journal of Scientific Reports found that EPA supplementation reduced levels of fecal calprotectin and improved mucosa production and goblet cell differentiation.3
DHA is most known for its beneficial impact on brain health. One of DHA’s most important roles is the modulation of an important part of phospholipid membranes, known as phosphatidylserine (PS). This substance promotes healthy signal conduction and protects neuronal survival not only to cells in the brains but also to neurons in the GI tract.4
DPA, also known as the “forgotten fatty acid”, is receiving more attention in the omega-3 family due to its unique ability to increase EPA and DHA tissue status, but it also supports a healthy gut by reducing pro-inflammatory cytokines and macroscopic damage.5,6 Supplementation with DPA can also inhibit inflammatory cyclooxygenase (COX) pathways, resulting in healthier cells and tissues.7
PRMs, or pro-resolving mediators, are omega-3 derivatives that
While the human body is able to convert omega-3’s to PRMs, the process is time-consuming and requires multiple steps to complete. Furthermore, it can be inhibited due to stress, disease, genetics, diet and lifestyle factors.10 Supplementation provides the body with an abundance of PRMs, so that remediation and tissue restoration can proceed quickly and without limitation.**
