Colin Barrow, PhD, Ocean Nutrition's vice president of research and development, has any number of ways of getting omega-3s into his diet.

Dr. Colin Barrow, Vice President of R&D with ONC, said, "Both EPA and DHA are important in heart health and normal growth and development as stated in an FDA qualified heart health claim for foods containing EPA and DHA. Dr. Barrow continued, "Over 8,000 scientific papers have been published demonstrating the health benefits of EPA and DHA reflecting the nutritional value for consumers."
