Yes, studies show that pure EPA is more effective for cholesterol management than oils containing EPA & DHA.  This is because, unlike DHA-containing fish oils, high-purity EPA products do not raise low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (‘bad’ LDL-Cholesterol).

EPA inhibits an enzyme called HMG-CoA, which regulates the rate of cholesterol production in the body. As with recommendations for high blood pressure, the amount of EPA needed is relatively high; we would therefore recommend 4 capsules of Pharmepa RESTORE to achieve 2 grams of EPA daily.
