Takeaways include: *Increased clinical research and innovative development are drawing consumers to omega-3 products. *The U.S., Canada, Japan and EU each have a regulatory framework for permissible EPA and DHA claims. *The Omega-3 Index, an omega-3 blood marker test, could alert consumers to their need for EPA and DHA.
