English term or phrase: Shed two carbon bonds
Although we need EPA, excess DHA can be converted into EPA when the body needs it. Chemically, this is a simple process whereby DHA sheds two carbon bonds and then becomes EPA. Adding two carbon bonds for EPA to become DHA is not so easy. Thus, excess EPA can’t make up for a lack of DHA omega3.
