Omega-3 DHA enteric-coated softgels contain a novel ratio of essential omega-3 fatty acids in triglyceride form. Omega-3 DHA is an excellent source of these fatty acids, providing 450 mg of docosahexeanoic acid (DHA) and 150 mg eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) per serving.
The omega-3 fatty acid EPA is the direct precursor for the anti-inflammatory prostaglandins E1 and E3, whereas DHA is of primary importance for the structural integrity of neuronal membranes. DHA is essential for brain and visual development and is vital throughout pregnancy to support fetal brain growth and formation of the retina and visual cortex. As the most abundant fatty acid in the brain, adequate amounts of DHA are needed throughout infancy and adulthood for ongoing optimal function. Low levels of DHA may adversely influence behavior and mental performance, and have been correlated with changes in disposition, memory loss, and visual and other neurological conditions.*
Fish oil used for Omega-3 DHA is taken from clean, unpolluted waters and prepared using a molecular distillation method that serves to eliminate heavy metals and other potential contamination. The fish used to create the fish oil products are primarily wild-caught sardines and anchovies that come from the cold waters of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.
