Eicosapentaenoic acid 20:5 (EPA) is an important omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid with antiinflammatory properties. Eicosapentaenoic acid has cardiovascular benefits, including lowering serum triglyceride (TG) and non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (non-HDL-C) levels and potentially reducing key steps in atherogenesis.
