Scientific Evidence Supports Omega-3 Benefits, But Regulatory Roadblocks Remain

September 1, 2010: 10:30 PM EST
Science has reported on the health benefits associated with omega-3 fatty acids, especially for cardiovascular health. And there is increasing evidence that omega-3s offer other health benefits, including the brain, infant development, breasts, eyes, etc. So the outlook for providers of omega-3 ingredients is generally rosy, if remaining regulatory hurdles can be overcome. Omega-3s have received a qualified heart health claim in the U.S., but experts would like to see full approval for the claim within a year. The Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3s (GOED) wants the FDA to set recommended daily intake levels. Draft U.S. dietary guidelines urge increases in omega-3 consumption, but lack consistency in recommended levels. Lastly, European regulators continue to debate appropriate dosages for blood pressure claims.
