DHA is an omega-3, long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid and it is the primary building block of the human brain tissue and eye. The human brain is about 60% fat, and DHA is one of the crucial structural fatty acids in both the brain and the retina.
Approximately 30% of the structural lipid in the gray matter of the brain is DHA. Thus, it is required for the proper functioning of the neural systems. DHA is vital for normal brain development of the foetus and infant and for the maintenance of normal brain function throughout life.
Additionally, many scientific parties have made recommendations regarding the intake of omega-3 fatty acids for cardiovascular health because it has been shown to help lower and, normalize certain blood lipids*. DHA may lower triglyceride levels and in some, may elevate HDL (good) cholesterol levels*. Unfortunately, the typical Western diet may not provide sufficient amounts of DHA, and fatty fish or fish oils always have the risk of containing potentially harmful pollutants, such as dioxin and mercury*. Interestingly, many vegetarians, vegans, and raw foods dieters are also at risk of having insufficiencies of DHA unless they supplement
The DHA used in this product is derived from algae grown under sanitary manufacturing conditions. It is clean, safe and free of contaminants. Now with the special coating our DHA capsules withstand stomach acid and dissolve in the small intestine to allow for better absorption. Delivering the omega-3 fatty acids directly to the small intestine also eliminates fishy repeat and aftertaste which is associated with most fish or algae oil products.
