Pure Vegan contains life's DHA, manufactured by Martek, the pioneer in vegan based DHA. Martek is a pioneer in this technology and transformed the nutritional opportunities for vegetarians and vegans. Since Pure Vegan DHA is from an algae source, common side effects such as fish burps and rancidity are not experienced.
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is an omega-3 fatty acid found in cold water fatty fish. Vegetarian sources of DHA can be found in seaweed and algae. DHA is essential for the proper functioning of our brains as adults, and for the development of our nervous system and visual abilities during the first 6 months of life. In addition, omega-3 fatty acids are part of a healthy diet that can help lower the risk of heart disease. Our bodies naturally produce small amounts of DHA, but the beneficial amounts we need must come from food or dietary supplements. Research has shown many individuals with western diets are deficient in DHA since fish is not a popular menu item. Western diets contain too much Omega-6's, but little omega-3's.
