DHA 710 Select - 90 Softgels
DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is a polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acid found naturally in the oil of deep-sea, coldwater fish. Humans are able to synthesize DHA from plant-based omega-3 fatty acids (e.g. those found in flaxseed oil) but in most people, this conversion is inefficient at best. DHA is therefore considered a conditionally essential fatty acid-one which must be supplied by dietary or supplemental sources.
Found throughout the body, DHA is most abundant in tissues of the brain, eye and heart muscle. It is the primary structural fat in both the retina and the brain, sixty percent of which is constructed of fatty components. DHA is critical to the developing brain during gestation and early childhood. Throughout life, proper nervous system and visual function depend on the availability of this important omega-3 fatty acid.
Studies suggest that DHA helps to support a healthy inflammatory response as well. According to recent research, DHA may be highly effective in modulating specific markers of inflammation and blood lipids. DHA is well known for helping to promote optimal signal transmission in the brain, eyes and nervous system. Low DHA levels have been clinically associated with mood changes, memory problems, poor visual function and other neurological concerns in adults and children.
The DHA in DHA 710 Select" is obtained from molecularly distilled, Peruvian anchovy oil. It has been rigorously tested to meet international standards for safety and purity and is blended with natural mixed tocopherols to help preserve freshness and stability.
