ABSTRACT The health benefits of fish oil, and its omega-3 long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid content, have attracted much scientific attention in the last four decades. Fish oils that contain higher amounts of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA; 20:5n-3) than docosahexaenoic acid (DHA; 22:6n-3), in a distinctive ratio of 18/12, are typically the most abundantly available and are commonly studied. Although the two fatty acids have traditionally been considered together, as though they were one entity… Expand
Omega-3 Long-Chain Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids, EPA and DHA: Bridging the Gap between Supply and Demand
TLDR
All the new sources have potentially important roles to play in increasing the supply of n-3 LC-PUFA so that they are available more widely and in higher concentrations providing more options and opportunities for human consumers to obtain sufficient EPA and DHA to support more healthy, balanced diets. Expand
Microalgae as sources of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids: Biotechnological aspects
TLDR
The aim of the present review is to summarize the recent biotechnological progress made regarding the production, purification, and concentration of ω-3 LC-PUFAs from marine microalgae. Expand
Comparative effects of dietary microalgae oil and fish oil on fatty acid composition and sensory quality of table eggs
TLDR
The results suggested that microalgae oil would be more promising for egg DHA enrichment owing to better sensory quality of the resultant eggs. Expand
Bioavailability and conversion of plant based sources of omega-3 fatty acids - a scoping review to update supplementation options for vegetarians and vegans.
TLDR
Preliminary advice for vegetarians and vegans is regular consumption of preformed EPA and DHA supplements may help maintain optimal O3I, and further studies should establish optimum EPA andDHA ratios and dosages in vegetarian and vegan populations. Expand
Novel high‐docosahexaenoic‐acid tuna oil supplementation modulates gut microbiota and alleviates obesity in high‐fat diet mice
TLDR
The results suggest that high‐DHA TO (HDTO) supplementation notably ameliorates obesity and related lipid parameters and restores the expression of lipid metabolism‐related genes. Expand
Comparing docosahexaenoic acid supplementation strategies in terms of broiler tissue enrichment, productivity, and cost
TLDR
The results of 2 studies are described in which the DHA-rich protist, Aurantiochytrium limacinum was fed to broilers at a rate of 0, 0.5, 1, and 2% of the diet, leading to enough DHA to be considered a source of omega-3 in the European Union and Canada. Expand
Altered levels of shorter vs long-chain omega-3 fatty acids in commercial diets for market-sized Atlantic salmon reared in seawater – Effects on fatty acid composition, metabolism and product quality
TLDR
In the absence of fish oil, the inclusion of camelina oil at high levels contributed to an improved n-6/n-3 ratio and partially ameliorated low dietary n-3 LC PUFA by providing added substrate for endogenous n-2LC PUFA synthesis in comparison to a 20% camelinaOil inclusion. Expand
Fast and Specific Screening of EPA/DHA-Enriched Phospholipids in Fish Oil Extracted from Different Species by HILIC-MS.
TLDR
A precursor ion scan-driven hydrophilic interaction chromatography mass spectrometry method with the fatty acyl moieties of m/z 301.6 and 327.6 was established to specifically and selectively screen PLEPA/DHA in different fish oil samples, including saury, grass carp, hairtail, and yellow croaker. Expand
Omega-3 fatty acids in pathological calcification and bone health.
TLDR
It is infers that supplementation of omega-3 fatty acids aids in bone preservation in elder females at the risk of osteoporosis and also, on the contrary, omega- 3 fatty acids interfere with pathological calcification of vascular cells and cancer cells. Expand
Mediterranean Sea bacteria as a potential source of long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids.
TLDR
Microorganisms belonging to the genera reported in this study showed biotechnological traits interesting for their potential future application in aquaculture. Expand

Effect of fish oils containing different amounts of EPA, DHA, and antioxidants on plasma and brain fatty acids and brain nitric oxide synthase activity in rats
TLDR
Both the EPA- and DHA-rich diets affected the blood lipids in a similarly positive manner, and they both had a large impact on plasma phospholipid fatty acids and in vivo lipid peroxidation, while the unstable oil diet resulted in smaller changes, especially in n-3 PUFAs. Expand
Lack of effect of foods enriched with plant- or marine-derived n-3 fatty acids on human immune function.
TLDR
An intake of ALA or EPA+DHA does not alter the functional activity of neutrophils, monocytes, or lymphocytes, but it changes the fatty acid composition of mononuclear cells. Expand
Effects of fish-oil supplementation on myocardial fatty acids in humans.
TLDR
The results of the present study show that dietary n-3 fatty acids are rapidly incorporated into human myocardial phospholipids at the expense of arachidonic acid during high-dose fish-oil supplementation. Expand
Comparison of the effects of linseed oil and different doses of fish oil on mononuclear cell function in healthy human subjects.
TLDR
It is concluded that, with the exception of IL-6 production, a modest increase in intake of either ALNA or EPA+DHA does not influence the functional activity of mononuclear cells. Expand
Fish consumption, fish oil, omega-3 fatty acids, and cardiovascular disease.
TLDR
Evidence from epidemiological studies and RCTs will be reviewed, and recommendations reflecting the current state of knowledge will be made with regard to both fish consumption and omega-3 fatty acid (plant- and marine-derived) supplementation. Expand
Effects of fish oil supplementation on markers of the metabolic syndrome.
TLDR
Fish oil improves BP in normotensive and normolipidemic slightly overweight adolescent boys and directly correlated with the increases in HDL cholesterol and non-HDL cholesterol concentrations. Expand
Long-chain omega-3 fatty acids and the brain: a review of the independent and shared effects of EPA, DPA and DHA
  • S. Dyall
  • Medicine
  • Front. Aging Neurosci.
  • 2015
TLDR
With a greater understanding of the individual roles of EPA, DPA and DHA in brain health and repair it is hoped that appropriate dietary recommendations can be established and therapeutic interventions can be more targeted and refined. Expand
Fish Oil Supplementation Alters the Plasma Lipidomic Profile and Increases Long-Chain PUFAs of Phospholipids and Triglycerides in Healthy Subjects
TLDR
In healthy subjects, fish oil supplementation alters lipid metabolism and increases the proportion of phospholipids and triglycerides containing long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids. Expand
(n-3) fatty acids and cardiovascular health: are effects of EPA and DHA shared or complementary?
TLDR
The present evidence suggests that EPA and DHA have both shared and complementary benefits and increasing consumption of either would be advantageous compared to little or no consumption. Expand
Effects of oils rich in eicosapentaenoic and docosahexaenoic acids on immune cell composition and function in healthy humans.
TLDR
The fatty acid composition of plasma phospholipids and neutrophils was dramatically altered by supplementation with EPA or DHA, and the effects of EPA differed notably from those of DHA. Expand
