Maxepa capsule is enriched with Eicosapentanoic acid and Docosahexanoic acid.
Omega-3 fatty acids (Eicosapentanoic acid and Docosahexanoic acid) help to reduce the risk of heart disease (e.g., irregular heartbeat) and also to promote healthy skin. They are also used along with diet and exercise to help lower levels of a certain blood fat (triglyceride) and to raise levels of "good" cholesterol (HDL). Maxepa capsule is used to help treat high blood pressure or rheumatoid arthritis.
Secondly, EPA and DHA also decrease the production of a substance called thromboxane, which is one of the chemicals that cause platelets to clump together and start off the process of blood clotting. Reducing the amount of thromboxane may help to reduce the likelihood of clots forming within blood vessels, which may help reduce the overall risk of heart attack.
