See Yourself Well DHA Essentials (120 Capsules) SYW-DHA
Pharmaceutical Grade & Ultra-Refined, Certified Clean & Free of Impurities.
Every batch of DHA Essentials is cold-pressed and undergoes a special molecular-distillation process that concentrates it and removes mercury, PCBs, dioxins, furans and heavy metals. (Though we only use small fish that are low on the food chain with short life spans — sourced from some of the cleanest cold waters in the world — all fish are susceptible to contaminants in this day and age). DHA Essentials fish oil also goes through a high-end process called nitrogen purging at every step of the manufacturing process, to ensure the very highest quality and to reduce oxidative stress.
Highly-Concentrated: 154 mg DHA, 22mg EPA Per 500mg Capsule — Equal to Over 1oz of Fish.
Each capsule of DHA Essentials contains 154mg DHA and 22mg EPA. This is at least twice the omega-3 content of most higher-quality drugstore and health-food store liquid fish oils. Did you know that it takes 100 gallons of the lowest health-food grade fish oil to make 1 gallon of pharmaceutical-grade fish oil? Make sure to note the concentration and purity when comparing our price to other omega-3 supplements on the market!
130mg Borage oil, a source of LA (linoleic acid) & GLA (gamma linolenic acid).
Fish oil supplementation is known to increase levels of fish oil fatty acids (EPA and DHA) in the blood. However, by doing so levels of other, also potentially important fatty acids may decrease. In pregnant women, fish oil is thought to reduce levels of the omega-6 fatty acids, GLA and arachidonic acid.
While reducing omega-6s is typically a good thing for the average person, there is the potential that reduction in these fatty acids might compromise fetal development. Recent studies indicate that supplementation with a combination of EPA plus DHA and GLA (borage oil) will result in an increase in DHA and GLA in the blood of the mother while having no effect on arachidonic acid levels.
Protects Against Decline of DHA During Pregnancy & Lactation.
Research shows that, during pregnancy and lactation, DHA levels are reduced in the mother. Reduced DHA levels in the blood are associated with reduced visual acuity in the infant, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in children and post-partum depression in new mothers. Supplementation with DHA has been shown to increase blood and breast milk levels of this crucial fatty acid. Two capsules daily of DHA ESSENTIALS supplies DHA at levels surpassing those shown to improve infant and mother DHA status in clinical research. These capsules are easy to swallow, but if inadvertently chewed, they have a pleasant orange taste.
Improves Motor & Cognitive Function in Infants.
Taking DHA Essentials increase the levels of DHA and GLA in the blood and other tissues of pregnant women and their infants. Increased levels of these key fatty acids may increase motor and cognitive development in the infant. Studies have demonstrated a strong correlation between higher infant DHA levels and improved visual acuity during the first two years of life. The important role of optimal DHA in cognitive development has also been established through numerous studies during infancy and through preschool.
Reduces Probability of Cognitive Decline in Later Life.
Omega-3 fatty acids, including DHA, have been researched in studies in humans, as well as in animals and test tubes. These fatty acids are associated with the decreased development of cardiovascular diseases and age-related cognitive disorders. DHA specifically makes up a large part of the fat in the eye and in the grey matter in the brain, and reduced DHA levels in the blood have been associated with Alzheimer’s disease in adults. Taking DHA Essentials increase the levels of DHA and GLA in the blood and other tissues. Increased levels of these key fatty acids may decrease the development of cognitive decline in adults.
