Omega-3 fatty acids — especially DHA — are essential to our brains in many ways.
So, it’s wise to ensure healthy levels of omega-3 DHA, from the womb through old age.
Our supplement provides 1,040mg of omega-3 DHA per two-softgel serving, which is twice the DHA per serving found in most omega-3 supplements.
It comes from sustainably harvested anchovies and mackerel, and occurs in the well-absorbed triglyceride form found in seafood.
Better yet, each two-capsule serving provides 2,000 IU of vitamin D3 … another nutrient essential to brain health.
DHA: Critical to brain health and resiliency
Omega-3 DHA is the most abundant fatty acid in the human brain, by far.
That’s because DHA is essential to fundamental brain functions and to enabling and promoting connections among brain cells. In addition, the body uses DHA to resolve inflammation, which underlies major health conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.
The fundamental importance of DHA to the brain may explain why low blood levels are linked to higher risk for depression, anxiety, anger, and dementia, as well as diverse mental disorders.
And preliminary lab and clinical evidence suggests that ample intake of DHA renders the brain more resilient in response to physical trauma.
Vitamin D: An overlooked brain ally
Research into the role of vitamin D in brain health is growing rapidly.
Preliminary findings suggest that vitamin D is essential to brain development, and to brain health throughout life.
Low vitamin D levels have been linked to higher risks for various brain disorders, including Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
