The impact of omega-3 fatty acids on cardiovascular health will be the focus of the EPAX AS VendorWorks presentation at SupplySide West 2009. The seminar, "Update on Marine EPA/DHA Omega-3 for Cardioprotection," will be presented by omega-3 expert Professor Bruce Holub, Ph.D., from 9 - 9:50 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 13 in the Venetian/Sands Expo room Galileo 901.
Dr. Holub will discuss the science supporting the heart-healthy benefits of marine-based eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Additionally, attendees will learn about the latest research showing EPA and DHA’s role in maintaining healthy blood triglyceride levels.
