Co-supported by the University of Guelph, the Dietitians of Canada (DC), the DHA/EPA Omega-3 Institute, and designated as a Satellite Symposium of ISSFAL (International Society for the Study of Fatty Acids and Lipids) 

The last five years have seen a flurry of exciting new developments in the area of omega-3 fatty acids for optimal health and complementary care. Highlights include:

  • Importance of higher DHA omega-3 intakes including supplementation during pregnancy, lactation, infancy and childhood
  • Benefits of  EPA/DHA omega-3 supplementation for complementary care in inflammatory conditions
  • Clinical use of EPA/DHA supplementation for cardio care and risk factor management
  • EPA/DHA supplementation for age-related health conditions (dry eye syndrome, dementia, others)
  • EPA/DHA for various mental disorders including depression and anxiety disorders
  • EPA/DHA omega-3 treatment for the complementary management of sports-related concussions 

The symposium will also cover recommended intakes of EPA/DHA omega-3 from national and international organizations for various health targets and strategies for closing the “nutrition gap.” Supplemental/nutraceutical and functional food sources of EPA/DHA will be explored in order to meet these targets. Controversial topics will also be objectively clarified.
