$AMRN Because we science. Uhm no, we read. ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/312... Correction: Re-studied the article and mistaken my ratio. It was 4.4:1 EPA:DPA and not EPA:DHA. Was a hard read at first but became easier once realized the results just compared ratios of blood plasma uRey concentrations. Keys: 18:3n-3 is ALA 20:5n-3 is EPA 22:5n-3 is DPA 22:6n-3 is DHA en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ome... EPA 3g/d arm: * EPA went up 880%; technically (454−46.5)÷46.5 is 8.76 but authors rounded to 1 decimal place so used 8.8 which x100% becomes 880% * DPA went up 200% * DHA was unchanged DHA 3g/d arm: * EPA went up 130%; d13C EPA didn't go up meaning plasma EPA didn't come from DHA and maybe from ALA or DPA * DHA went up 180% Adding DHA doesn't significantly increase benefits from EPA. Just take EPA. ALA or DPA conversion rate is TBD. ALA didn't reduce all-cause mortality or CHD so it's really down to EPA and DPA as contenders. ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/305... #hardcoretoughbulls $MTNB
