It can be estimated by reproducible and standardized procedures. Many epidemiological studies support the view that n–3 or w–3 index is an important risk factor or biomarker for sudden cardiac death. The n–3 or w–3 index can assess the risk for sudden cardiac death and monitor therapy with EPA + DHA. , 2005; von Schacky and Harris, 2007; Harris, 2008). Recent intervention studies with EPA in patients at 16 1 Fish Oil and Importance of Its Ingredients in Human Diet high cardiovascular risk in Japan indicate that subjects rarely die by sudden cardiac death.

Bleeding tendencies include prolonged cutaneous, nose, urinary tract, and obstetric bleedings (Dyerberg and Bang, 1979). Furthermore, Greenland Eskimos show reduced platelet in vitro aggregability, compared with Danish control subjects.

In vitro DHA deficiency can be produced by culturing hippocampal cells in chemically defined medium (Calderon and Kim, 2007). DHA supplementation restores DHA levels to the levels detected in freshly isolated hippocampus.
