As Essential as Frosting on a Cupcake.
How and Why to Feed Essential Levels of EPA/DHA

Ask any 4-year old…a cupcake is just not a cupcake without the frosting.
So it is with embryos and EPA/DHA omega-3. These essential nutrients are stored in lipid droplets surrounding the growing embryo, where they are taken up in high quantities during early embryo development.
In fact, research shows that as little as half a gram of EPA/DHA doubled the growth rate of the day-7 embryo (Oseikria, 2016). Now, that’s essential.

This is just one of a multitude of studies that have been performed over the past several decades that support feeding EPA/DHA an essential nutrient. Download the EPA/DHA Research Timeline (PDF) to see a recap of 93 years of research at a glance, plus aEPA/DHA feeding guide.
