An unsaturated omega-3 fatty acid. With docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) there is increasing direct evidence that its metabolic products reduce inflammatory mediators by direct action[1]. Higher dietry intake is associated with reduced risk of coronary heart disease events[2], although unlike docosahexaenoic acid, it does not seem to decrease risk of atrial fibrillation[3].
