DHA From Algae

As Seen On...

DHA from AlgaeAlgae is the original source of EPA/DHA in aquatic ecosystems. Certain microalgae produce high levels of EPA or DHA. DHA from Algae is organically produced from a DHA-rich microalgae fermented broth. Clinical trials with DHA-rich oil indicate a favorable comparison to fish oil.*

Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) play a critical role in the normal development and functioning of the brain and central nervous system, with the conditionally essential fatty acid, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), proven to be vital to pre- and post-natal brain development. DHA is transferred directly to the fetus during pregnancy, especially during the last trimester, and is supplied to the infant in mother’s breast milk after birth. Functioning exclusively via cell membranes and anchored by phospholipid molecules, PUFAs such as DHA are involved in numerous processes affecting membrane fluidity and gene regulation. DHA is the primary structural fatty acid in the brain’s gray matter (~60%) and the eye’s retina, optimizing signal transmission in these organs and the overall nervous system. Approximately 50% of a neuronal membrane’s weight is DHA. Low levels of this fatty acid have been correlated with memory loss, impairment of the ability to recognize and comprehend written words, poor night vision, and other neurological conditions. Meta-analyses confirm benefits in affective disorders. DHA also has immune-modulating and anti-inflammatory properties. Studies using algal DHA demonstrate efficacy for cardiovascular support, especially with respect to plasma triglycerides and oxidative stress.*

Eco-friendly, Revolution Health & Wellness’s DHA from Algae/ meets the requirements that set high standards, including AIB International Consolidated Standards for Prerequisites and Food Safety Programs, Prop 65, and ANSI/ISO. The DHA is extracted from a fermented algal broth and processed without any heat exposure. (See chart for details.)*
