Omega-3 Infographic Explains Differences Between EPA, DHA, and ALA

December 2, 2016

GOED has released its third consumer infographic, which covers the different benefits of EPA, DHA, and ALA omega-3s.

The Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3s (GOED; Salt Lake City, UT) has released its third consumer infographic. Developed by GOED’s communicatiosn committee, the infographic covers a few of the differences between EPA, DHA, and ALA omega-3s, including common dietary sources of each and some potential health benefits.

The infographic joins GOED’s existing line of consumer infographics, including ones on omega-3s for heart health and omega-3s for brain health. GOED has also released an infographic designed to explain the benefits of omega-3 supplementation to doctors.

GOED welcomes its members to share the infographic on websites and social media platforms. It notes that while the infographic itself is phrased in language permissible under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA), some of the graphic’s references include links that include disease language, and should therefore be reviewed by the appropriate regulatory teams before being circulated.

 

 

A high-resolution version of the infographic can be found on GOED’s website here.
