The omega-3 fatty acid DHA is an important component of the brain which contains a higher concentration of DHA than other body tissues. DHA stimulates the production of neuronal features that underlie learning. Studies show that DHA is required to support nerve cell health. Current studies try to find the optimal levels of DHA in healthy individuals to support normal mood and behaviour, as well as normal cognitive function at any age.
DHA plays an important role in our bodies, being also a major component of the eye retina. Vegans and vegetarians have lower levels of this fatty acid, because fish oil does not provide an optimal amount. That is why taking a supplement becomes necessary. So, Life Extension has developed a premium DHA formulation derived from sustainable algae sources. Made with highly refined DHA oil, derived entirely from algae cells, it meets the most rigid standards of vegan and vegetarian diets and is ideal for anyone who wishes to supplement their DHA intake.
