About this item
DEVA Vegan Omega-3 DHA - Delayed Release is a high quality, high potency alternative to fish oil. It is appreciated by vegans, vegetarians, and anyone else who would like to benefit from DHA in its safest form, as derived from algae. DHA is an omega-3, long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid. It is the primary building block of the human brain tissue and eye. The human brain is about 60% fat, and DHA is one of the crucial structural fatty acids in both the brain and the retina. Approximately 30% of the structural lipid in the gray matter of the brain is DHA. DHA is vital for normal brain development of the fetus and infant and for the maintenance of normal brain function throughout life. Additionally, many scientific parties have made recommendations regarding the intake of omega-3 fatty acids for cardiovascular health because it has been shown to help lower and normalize certain blood lipids. DHA may lower triglyceride levels and elevate HDL (good) cholesterol levels. Unfortunately, the typical Western diet may not provide sufficient amounts of DHA, and fatty fish or fish oils always have the risk of containing potentially harmful pollutants, such as dioxin and mercury. Many vegetarians, vegans, and raw foods dieters are also at risk of having insufficiencies of DHA unless they supplement. Vegan Omega-3 DHA - Delayed Release is derived from algae grown under sanitary manufacturing conditions. It is clean, safe and free of contaminants. Now with the special coating DEVA DHA capsules withstand stomach acid and dissolve in the small intestine to allow for better absorption. Delivering the omega-3 fatty acids directly to the small intestine also eliminates fishy repeat and aftertaste which is associated with most fish or algae oil products. DEVA animal-free DHA oil capsules are easy on your stomach.
