Visit the national library of health and search for studies involving eicosapentaenoic acid .
There are thousands of studies.
A systematic review of the literature on the effects of n-3 FAs (consumed as fish or fish oils rich in eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid or as alpha-linolenic acid) are available for review on ncbi.nlm.nih
There you have it!!!!!!!! A logical explanation that is straightforward and concise. I would like to thank you for your contribution.

Could anyone tell me the clinical effect of E-EPA if you eat it? Now what if you eat E-EPA? Then, imagine you eat E-EPA, what then?
What effect does this E-EPA have on cardiovascular bio markers such as APO A/B/C, Lp-PLA2, or VLDL, just to name a few??????????????? Now, what if you eat E-EPA.....then how would bio markers be affected?
Can someone explain how your body processes E-EPA if you eat it out of a box that reads Vascepa? Now explain how your body process the E-EPA if you eat it out of a box that reads Omegavia EPA 500?
So your body processes E-EPA differently depending on what you call it when you put it in your mouth?
*Vascepa - tocopherol, gelatin, glycerin, maltitol, sorbitol, and purified water.
*OmegaVia EPA 500 - Mixed Natural Tocopherols, Gelatin, Glycerin, Natural Enteric Coating.
I know they both Omegavia EPA 500 and Vascepa are manufactured in certified GMP factories. I know they both are pure E-EPA products.
I know Vascepa lacks the enteric coating allowing the capsule to dissolve in your stomach risking fishy burps.
I know if you eat salmon today or tomorrow it does not matter, your body processes the EPA the exact same way. I know that you can eat salmon caught fresh or salmon from a nice restaurant and your body will process the EPA the exact same way.
I know if you eat E-EPA capsules today or tomorrow it does not matter, your body processes the E-EPA the exact same way.
I know if you eat E-EPA capsules or E-EPA capsules it does not matter, your body processes the E-EPA the exact same way.
I know there are some real stupid people out there who lack any education and any real knowledge who are trying to tell you that E-EPA is not E-EPA.
I am not sure what you are asking.
Are you confused by E-EPA?
Do you believe that EPA is not EPA when you call it Floozeepa or Vascepa or PlusEPA?
Are you trying to tell people that if you could tell the difference between Omegavia EPA 500 and Vascepa if nobody told you which is which? Please, explain?
I hate to be the one to demolish your ignorant fantasy world, but people who have never taken courses in Biology, Chemistry and Physics tend to get confused about substances and human physiology.
The EPA is the same, the ethyl-esterization process is the same, the factories are GMP certified. The additional ingredients found in Vascepa and Omegavia EPA 500 are identical.
-Additional ingredients of OmegaVia EPA 500 - Mixed Natural Tocopherols, Gelatin, Glycerin, Natural Enteric Coating.
-Additional ingredients of Vascepa - tocopherol, gelatin, glycerin, maltitol, sorbitol, and purified water.
But even if they weren't the same, would it matter? No.
What is of concern is the E-EPA. It doesn't matter what you call the E-EPA. It doesn't matter.
When you eat EPA in any form, your body processes and uses the EPA the exact same way.
When you eat identical E-EPA fish oil pills, your body processes the E-EPA the exact same way. Then your body processes and uses the EPA the exact same way.
One last note, EPA will not fix your stupidity.
We realize you are not the sharpest knife in the sink but just possibly you heard somewhere that EVIDENCE (meaning research published in Medline Indexed journals) is the best way to support the sale of drugs. An organization called the FOOD and DRUG ADMINISTRATION mandated the use of such works, please look this up DUMB DUMB it will help you...
I am awaiting your response regarding clinical trials or scientific evidence regarding your position on OTC EPA. You have a short posting history (3-4 posts), however you are others supporting your position continue to make claims regarding efficacy similar to Vascepa. You have an opportunity to put up or shut up. Where's your evidence or documentation?
I particularly like the fact they deliver their reports in a timely manner, always getting info to their members with enough time for them to not only read the report but do their own research as well
Seemingly, Vascepa + Pravastatin may be a better COMBO than V + Lipitor, although more amount of Prav than Lip is needed to reach a comparable effect of lowering LDL-C (note: not of lowering TG or Lp-PLA2). Perhaps, AMRN already has the patent for the Combo V + P.
misleading longs are almost as bad as misleading shorts ...but at least they aren't as obnoxious.
"few more thousand scripts and co could become profitable :...!!! yeah , like about 14,000 scripts per week ..
If weekly scripts grow by 3% a week ...how many weeks until we reach 24,000 scripts per wk ?
Well I'll let you do the math.....but roughly around 34 wks IF we maintain 3% growth per week .
Now figure cash burn ...so an interesting convergence ....as we run out of $ , we get very close to break even ( with 3% script growth ) at about the earliest time we may see RI interim data.
Unfortunately, this is a GOVERNMENT entity, they can ignore anything they want. And at this point, they have to ignore everything until REDUCE-IT comes out. Otherwise they would get the #$%$ sued out of them for destroying a company for no reason. They have to pretend that REDUCE-IT is all that matters, despite a mountain of evidence to the contrary. For them to admit that they screwed up at this point, would be too much of a black eye for the agency and invite too many lawsuits.....
Camber Capital and Stonepine Capital bought big. Ra Capital buying next? I think a major rally could start soon.
