Genestra - SEP EFA - 90 Softgel(s) - NPN: 80002764 -- SEP EFA is a blend of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA that helps support cardiovascular health. Research indicates that EPA and DHA decrease triglycerides by altering gene expression in the liver; they lower fat production by increasing fatty acid metabolism through PPARa stimulation.This decrease in triglycerides leads to a reduction in very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol production, molecules that transport lipids throughout the body. In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial involving 60 hyperlipidemic adults, 3 weeks of daily supplementation with 1.4 g total of EPA and DHA significantly lowered serum triglycerides by approximately 20% when compared to baseline values. DHA is also the most abundant omega-3 fatty acid in the brain: supplementation with fish oils has been associated with the maintenance of neuron function in the hippocampus, a region of the brain associated with memory. In 36 elderly adults with mild cognitive impairment, daily supplementation with 1.75 g of DHA and EPA for 12 months led to significant increases in short-term and working memory.
