DHA ,also known as docohexaenoic acid, is an omega 3 essential fatty acid. Unlike fish oils on the market DHA we use comes from algae oil, which makes it a true vegan alternative. Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.
DHA is the most prominent essential fatty acid in the brain and in the eye. With regard to DHA and the fetal brain in pregnancy, researchers found that infants born to mothers with higher blood levels of the omega-3 fatty acid DHA at delivery had advanced levels of attention spans well into their second year of life. During the first six months of life, these infants were two months ahead of those babies whose mothers had lower DHA levels.
DHA has the biggest effect on the polyunsaturated fatty acids composition in the brain. Low levels of DHA in the body have been associated with a mental decline and causes neural cell death.
Our liquid DHA with fresh lemon flavor has an adult dose of 14 drops which provides 200 mg of algal DHA. Children dose is 7 drops. One very nice thing about this product is the fact that it can be mixed with food or drinks as it is a liquid with no capsule. This should help people who have hard time swallowing capsules or children who cannot take capsules.
