Protect & Restore High DHA Omega-3s


Protect & Restore is a highly concentrated high potency Omega-3 that is especially rich in DHA, an extremely important conditionally essential fatty acid. DHA supports brain, eye, and overall health and well-being. Cavin calls it “the most important brain nutrient.” Cavin was inspired to make the Protect & Restore High DHA Omega-3s to support recovery from brain injury as well as to enhance performance for healthy brains.

Cavin considers DHA to be THE most important nutrient for supporting brain health, which is why he searched far and wide for the best fish oil he could find. Protect and Restore uses a natural enzymatically enhanced MaxSimil® monoglyceride fish oil that has a three times greater absorption rate than an equivalent dose of ethyl ester fish oil.  It is a go to nutrient for healing from any injury or inflammation (TBI, concussion, stroke, migraines, etc…) and also the most supportive and protective supplement anyone can use to preserve and enhance brain plasticity and to support overall brain function.

DHA is the rarest needed fat that we find in foods, and it is the final stage of the conversion process that Omega-3’s undergo in our bodies. If we can get an optimal amount from diet and/or supplementation, then it takes the pressure off our liver to convert other omega-3’s into DHA.

Much of the research on Omega-3’s show DHA specifically to have the most beneficial effects on memory, and brain health. In the Chicago study (1), a strong neuroprotective effect was observed with DHA that was not seen to the same degree with EPA.

Several studies have also shown that people with Alzheimer’s have severely low levels of DHA in key areas of the brain related to memory formation like the hippocampus (2)(3).

  • DHA is the most abundant structural fatty acid in the brain and nervous system and plays a vital role in prenatal and postnatal brain development.
  • Researchers propose that DHA may play a role in maintaining myelin and neuronal health, supporting healthy eicosanoid metabolism (especially in the brain), and exerting pleiotropic effects to support healthy metabolism and aging.
  • Higher DHA levels were significantly associated with better performance in the areas of nonverbal reasoning, mental flexibility, working memory, and vocabulary.
  • DHA is recognized for developing and maintaining eye health and function during early life. Optimal retinal and visual cortex maturation were understood to depend upon dietary DHA during development, and visual acuity and mental development were “seemingly improved by extra DHA.”

DHA is found in fish oils. The production of fish oil concentrates requires converting the fish oil into a form that can be encapsulated. There are typically two different forms of fish oil supplements:

  • Ethyl Ester (EE): Using a chemical process called “molecular distillation”, the natural triglyceride form of a fish oil is broken apart and an ethanol molecule is attached to the free fatty acids created. This process allows for a “fish oil concentrate,” but these fish oils lack a glycerol backbone. Because of this the fatty acids are unstable and are looking for an available triglyceride backbone which they may take from an existing molecule in our brain or body. When this occurs, our cells are actually damaged. Additionally, studies have shown that ethyl esters are the least bio-available forms of omega-3’s.(1)
  • Triglyceride (TG): Fish naturally contain the omega-3 fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) as triglyceride esters. Evidence suggests that triglyceride (TG) fish oils are better absorbed in comparison to EEs. And because we can only use what we absorb, absorption is VERY important! So, because they are better absorbed (and because they aren’t creating a domino effect of unstable fatty acids in our bodies), TGs are better than EEs.

BUT… you know what’s up to 3x better absorbed than triglyceride (TG) fish oils?

Our bodies enzymatically break down triglycerides into monoglycerides that we can then use, but Protect & Restore is already enzymatically broken down into its high potency monoglyceride form. This makes Protect & Restore up to 3x more absorbable than an equivalent dose of ethyl ester fish oil!

This technology means that the DHA, sourced from cold water fatty fish, has already been pre-digested so that up to 3 times the DHA and EPA is able to be readily absorbed by our cells. One of these per day is a priceless gift to our incredible brain. We ALL need this stuff. It is an honor to share this epic quality product with you!!!
