A revolutionary powerful formula with 300mg of DHA and 150mg of EPA per serving made naturally from algae to improve and maintain a healthy brain, eyes and heart.
Why do we use Omega 3 from Schizochytrium Sp algae?
The importance of DHA for brain function cannot be emphasised enough.
It is the main Omega 3 fat in your brain (accounts for 97% of the Omega 3 content of the brain) and is essential for good brain function.
DHA is a long-chain omega-3 fatty acid which is found in cell membranes throughout the body and helps to transmit messages between nerves. Having adequate levels of DHA makes it easier and more efficient for nerve cells to communicate.
DHA is essential for the growth and functional development of the brain in infants and is also required for maintenance of normal brain function in adults.
The inclusion of plentiful DHA improves learning ability, whereas deficiencies of DHA are associated with deficits in learning. Studies have shown that people with Alzheimers disease have lower levels of DHA than people with good brain function.
Now more than ever, we need to look after our eyes. We may find ourselves constantly in front of a screen which can cause eye problems over time.
DHA is found in a high concentration in the retina in our eyes, which shows why it is important for visual development and retinal function.
Studies suggest that the retina can degrade over time if there is not enough DHA in the diet. It is also thought that DHA has an anti-inflammatory effect in the retina which can help to relieve inflammation that shows in many eye problems.
Many research studies support the view that EPA and DHA Omega 3 fatty acids are cardioprotective nutrients.
Higher intakes of these important Omega 3 nutrients are associated with reduced risk of cardiovascular problems.
They are thought to help normalise the levels of triglycerides in the body as well as help with cholesterol levels. This is mainly due to their ability to act as an anti-inflammatory.
So much research is continually being undertaken on DHA and EPA and their other health benefits such as its positive effects on mood, joint health and skin.
