Algae DHA

  • 4200


True Balance Algae DHA

Supports Brain, Eye, and Immune Health*

True Balance Algae DHA from contains docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), a conditionally essential omega-3 fatty acid. DHA is highly concentrated in brain synaptosomes, the cerebral cortex, mitochondria, and retina. It plays an important role in the fluidity and permeability of cell membranes and cellular communication, and supports optimal function of the brain, eyes, and immune system. This patented, processed formula is derived from marine algae.* Available in 60 softgels.

Directions

Take one vegetarian softgel daily with a meal, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.

Does Not Contain

Wheat, gluten, corn protein, yeast, soy, animal or dairy products, fish, shellfish, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, artificial colors, artificial sweeteners, or preservatives.

Caution

Consult your healthcare practitioner before use. Keep out of reach of children. Avoid if allergic to any ingredient.

Storage

Discussion

Algae are the original source of EPA/DHA in aquatic ecosystems. Certain microalgae produce high levels of EPA or DHA. Dr. Perlmutter’s DHA from Algae is organically produced from a DHA-rich microalgae fermented broth. Clinical trials with DHA-rich oil indicate a favorable comparison to fish oil.*

Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) play a critical role in the normal development and functioning of the brain and central nervous system, with the conditionally essential fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) believed to be vital to pre- and post-natal brain development. DHA is transferred directly to the fetus during pregnancy, especially during the last trimester, and is supplied to the infant in mother’s breast milk after birth. Functioning exclusively via cell membranes and anchored by phospholipid molecules, PUFAs such as DHA are involved in numerous processes affecting membrane fluidity and gene regulation. DHA is the primary structural fatty acid in the brain’s gray matter (~60%) and the eye’s retina, optimizing signal transmission in these organs and the overall nervous system. Approximately 50% of a neuronal membrane’s weight is DHA. Adequate levels of DHA are believed to support healthy memory, cognition, night vision, and mood. DHA also has immune-modulating properties and supports a healthy prostaglandin production profile. Studies using algal DHA suggest it may play a role in cardiovascular health, especially with respect to maintaining healthy lipid levels already within the normal range and supporting normal resistance to oxidative stress.*

Eco-friendly, True Balance Algae DHA and Algae DHA for Kids meet high standards, including AIB International Consolidated Standards for Inspection of Prerequisites and Food Safety Programs, Proposition 65, and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI)/ International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The DHA is extracted from a fermented algal broth and processed without any heat exposure.*
