A 100% natural omega-3 fatty acid, DHA not only helps to promote better cognitive function but it can also help improve heart health and eyesight. A vegetarian alternative to fish oil, it also comes without the unpleasant fishy odour or taste.
We all already know the many benefits of omega-3 fatty acids and chances are at some stage someone has probably tried to convince us that we need more fish oil in our lives. Whether it be cod liver oil or some other ocean dwelling derivative, omega-3 tends to come with a foul flavour and a lasting odour.
And so in creating Swanson Ultra Life's DHA, two of the major downsides of fish oil have been conquered. This taste and odour free alternative is made from microalgae and boasts equal (if not superior) efficacy to its animal based predecessors, meaning that if you are a vegetarian or vegan, you too can now enjoy the many benefits of omega-3 fatty acids.
DHA or Docosahexaenoic acid is a polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acid found in abundance right through the human body. primarily, it is a structural fat found in great quantities in the brain and the retina (it accounts for 97% of the omega-3 fats in the brain and up to 93% of the omega-3 fats in the retina). It is also a key constituent of the heart and has been cited by numerous scientific communities for its purported health benefits.
Common knowledge holds that fish are a great source of DHA. While this is essentially true it omits the fact that fish get their DHA from algae in the foodchain. Swanson Ultra Life's DHA skips the animal element and sources its DHA from the same microalgae the fish get it from.
By growing Swanson Ultra Life's DHA in a controlled environment, Swanson have harnessed the healing power of a product that is both vegetarian and a sustainable source of DHA.
DHA for Brain Health
Literally the fats around which our brains are built. This structural fat contributes to roughly 30% of the structural fats in the grey matter of the brain as well as 97% of the omega-3. It plays a role in infant mental development; brain and nervous system function and development; supporting ongoing mental function and potentially preventing certain mood or behavioural disorders.
DHA for Eye Health
As a major structural fat in the retina of the eye, DHA is vital to the visual development and function of adults and children alike. With studies emerging that claim that DHA can actually help improve reading ability, is has been suggested that DHA may hold the secret to uninhibited vision in later life.
DHA for Heart Health
DHA is found most prolifically in the conducting tissue of the heart, where it plays a very important role. By maintaining normal triglyceride levels, blood pressure and heart rate, DHA is thought to be essential for preventing certain forms of cardiovascular disease. Keep your blood pumping, your eyes sharp and your brain in shape with Swanson Ultra Life's DHA.
