Effects Of Eicosapentaenoic Acid Versus Docosahexaenoic Acid On Serum Lipids: A Systematic Review And Meta-analysis
Notes for this study:
|Number of Subjects
Investigated EPA and DHA separately, and found LDL-C to be increased by DHA rather than EPA (which was associated with a nonsignificant decline). DHA was able to increase HDL-C, whereas EPA was not.
Both fragments decreased triglycerides, although DHA trials were more potent in doing so.
