Zen Supplements DHA, 100 mg contains Docosahexaenoic Acid, Life’s DHA™, Neuromins®. DHA omega-3 is naturally found throughout the body and is most abundant in the brain, eyes and heart. Just as calcium is essential for building strong bones, DHA ensures that the cells in the brain, eyes, heart and other parts of the nervous system develop and function properly through all stages of life. Most people know that fish are a rich source of DHA, but what they don’t know is that fish get DHA from the algae they eat in their food chain. life’sDHA goes straight to the source, producing DHA from the same microalgae sources fish get it from. Grown in a controlled environment, life’sDHA is a vegetarian and sustainable source of DHA.
- Supportive research shows that the consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.
- Is free of chemical pollutants and toxins that may be present in some fish oils.
- Is derived from microalgae under tightly controlled manufacturing conditions.
Neuromins® DHA: Different from the Typical Fish Oil Supplement
Neuromins® DHA is different from your typical fish oil DHA supplement. Fish oil is the most commonly recognized source of DHA for dietary supplements. However, Martek Biosciences Corporation has developed a process that extracts DHA from algae, the fish’s original source, under tightly controlled manufacturing conditions.
This yields a highly purified form of DHA called Neuromins® DHA. Neuromins® DHA does not contain other long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids such as those that may be inappropriate for infants, children, and certain adults. Neuromins® DHA is also free of chemical pollutants and toxins that may be present in certain fish oils.
Neuromins® DHA is produced directly from microalgae under tightly controlled manufacturing conditions. There are no known side effects. DHA is naturally present in certain foods and behaves like any other fat in our digestive systems.
The recommended dosage of Neuromins® DHA is 100 milligrams per day for those who obtain some DHA from their diets. For those who eat little or no DHA-rich foods, 200 mg of Neuromins® DHA is recommended per day.
DHA for Brain Health
DHA is a structural fat, making up approximately 30% of the structural fats in the gray matter of the brain and 97% of the total omega-3s in the brain.
DHA for Eye Health
DHA is a major structural fat in the retina of the eye and it plays an important role in both infant visual development and visual function throughout life.
DHA for Heart Health
DHA is a key component of heart health, in large part because it is found in abundant levels in heart tissue. As a result, DHA is important for heart health throughout life.
