The definition of EPA oil is an Omega 3 oil that is either very high in EPA or contains only EPA and no other essential fatty acids.
The best example of this is fish oil , fish oil naturally contains two types of “good” Omega 3,s the first is EPA which stands for eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and the second is docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) for oil to be classed as “EPA oil” the epa content of the capsule must be very high , or better still had the DHA removed completely.
Using this definition, there are very few fish oils on the market that can claim to be Pure EPA Oil, but Pura EPA is one of them.
The oil is a 90% concentrate of EPA only hence the definition “EPA oil”
To give you some idea of an oil that is not an “EPA oil” take code liver oil for example , Cod liver oil is derived from liver of cod fish. As with most fish oils, it has high levels of the omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA. Cod liver oil also contains vitamin A and vitamin D.
To summarize , most fish oils or Omega 3 oils that are for sale on the global market are not EPA oils , as they contain to high a quantity of DHA or other non essential omega 3 fatty acids.
