DHA

Plant-source DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is a premier breakthrough that is derived from micro-algae instead of fish, making it suitable for everyone, including vegetarians and vegans.
Feed your brain with plant-source DHA, a key omega-3 fatty acid that is important for the brain, nervous system, eyes and cardiovascular health.

DHA Benefits Nervous System Function, Cardiovascular Health, and More

The omega-3 fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is known for its importance for healthy brain function and cardioprotection. Ongoing research continues to substantiate these claims and find additional benefits of DHA supplementation.

Just this past year, scientists attributed the following benefits to DHA:

Inadequate sensorimotor gating is central to human disorders like schizophrenia and ADHD – children with ADHD have reduced DHA levels2, and DHA has been shown to improve the symptoms of ADHD.3

Cognitive development in infants: DHA makes up 90% of the omega-3 fatty acid content of the brain, and is a major component of brain cell membranes. Since DHA is crucial during development of the brain, adequate DHA intake is important for pregnant and nursing women.

Keeping arteries clear: The oxidized form of LDL cholesterol contributes to the formation of atherosclerotic plaque. DHA supplementation in healthy, middle-aged men had antioxidant effects on LDL.5

Reducing inflammation: Men who took DHA supplements for 6-12 weeks decreased the concentrations of several inflammatory markers in their blood by approximately 20%.6-7

Cancer protection: DHA and EPA induced programmed cell death in colon cancer cells8 and prostate cancer cells9, and DHA supplementation reduced tumor size in a mouse model of cancer.10

Slowing the aging process: It had already been shown that heart disease patients with higher intakes of DHA and EPA survived longer. A new study has found that higher intake of these omega-3 fatty acids was associated with slower rate of telomere shortening, which is a DNA-level sign of aging.11

Why take algae-based DHA instead of fish oil?

All over the earth, the major fisheries are in crisis. Yet, claims about fish and heart health have increased the demand for both fish and fish oils – this demand cannot be met by the world’s current supply. In 2003, it was estimated that large predatory fish populations had declined 90% since the 1950s.12 Plus, most farmed fish are fed a diet of smaller, wild fish, driving wild fish stocks down further.13 Algae-based DHA is a more sustainable option, and it is free of the environmental pollutants that accumulate in the fatty tissue of fish, like mercury, PCBs, and dioxin.
