Notes for this study:
In 10 otherwise healthy young males given 2,000mg EPA and 1,000mg DHA for 3 months, a beneficial modulation of eicosanoids was noted (increased prostaglandin J2α and more thromboxane B2, the inactive metabolite of the platelet activating thromboxane A2) alongside a beneficial change in lipid profile.
