New Fish Oil Book: Reviews

The Missing Wellness Factors – EPA and DHA: The Most Important Nutrients Since Vitamins

Reviews

Nutrition Reporter Extra Vol. 23 No. 12 p 2 (December 2012)

The Missing Wellness Factors __ EPA and DHA, by Jørn Dyerberg, MD, and Richard Passwater, Ph.D. (Basic Health Publications, 2012). The omega-3s – namely EPA and DHA – are among the current stars of the nutritional world. This book is unique because it is a collaboration between Dyerberg, who first identified the link between fish oils and cardiovascular health, and Passwater, a researcher with an excellent grasp of nutritional biochemistry. The book traces Dyerberg’s discovery of the benefits of omega-3 fish oils, discusses their essential roles in human biochemistry in understandable terms, and then proceeds to explain how they benefit a variety of physical and mental health problems. Finally, the authors provide specific dosage recommendations for a variety of conditions.  Jack Challem, The Nutritional Reporter.

Laguna Beach, CA—Richard A. Passwater, Ph.D., scientific editor/author of WholeFoods’ Vitamin Connection column and well-known nutrition researcher, and fish oil authority Jorn Dyerberg, M.D., DMSc., have co-authored a new book about omega-3s.

The Missing Wellness Factors—EPA and DHA, published by Basic Health Publications, is divided into two parts: the discovery of EPA/DHA and information about their health benefits as studied through clinical trials (mostly published in 2010–2012). According to Passwater, “It all started with our four-part interview in the June 2010 Vitamin Connection column. We kept the discussions going and decided to put that information plus the explosion of new research since then in book format.”

The “adventure” begins with Dyerberg speaking to readers about his long journey to visit Eskimos (Inuits) in Greenland to unlock the mystery of their amazing diet and health. Along the way, Passwater and Dyerberg review the basic biochemistry of healthy fats and our bodies. The pair then delve into the many ways DHA and EPA benefit heart, brain, eye and joint health, among other applications. Also included are guidelines for restoring EPA and DHA levels in the body.
