Vegetarian DHA from Source Naturals® is a dietary supplement containing one of the most important polyunsaturated fatty acids - docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).

The company Source Naturals® decided to choose such a source of DHA, which constitutes an alternative to the one coming from animal sources, thanks to which the preparation is vegetarian-friendly. The fatty acid in the capsule is of plant origin. It was isolated from algal oil.

Maintaining proper level of fatty acids omega-3 in people on a vegan diet is a real challenge. The content of DHA in plant products is too low to ensure its proper concentration in the organism. The consequence of this is the impairment of both the work of the nervous system and other important aspects of the functioning of the organism.

Health from scratch
Proper functioning of the organism depends on the proper structure of the smallest building block – a cell. Docosahexaenoic acid is an important component of cell membranes. The fact that it contains as many as 6 double bonds makes it a very plastic structure. Thanks to this, it supports proper functioning of cells. It is responsible for the proper transmission of information to the inside of cells, which is important in regulating gene expression. Moreover, DHA demonstrates anti-inflammatory effect and supports the creation of many lipid and peptide mediators, which enable proper regulation of processes taking place in cells.

Taking care of the proper functions of the nervous system
DHA constitutes the most popular fatty acid in the center of the nervous system – in the brain. Many studies suggest that it constitutes as much as 97% of all fatty acids present in this area. It influences the functions related to the development of the frontal lobe, as this element of the grey matter is incredibly rich in its content.

Being the building component of cells and neurons, it facilitates proper transmission of nerve impulses, which results in efficient work of the nervous system. It was proven that a diet rich in this fatty acid results in accelerated transmission of information between cells. It enables better processing of information, facilitates memory and influences concentration.

Docosahexaenoic acid during pregnancy and breast-feeding
The proper intake of DHA by pregnant and breast-feeding women constitutes an important element of appropriate development of the fetus. It was proven that the high content of fatty acids omega 3 in a diet, especially in the third trimester of pregnancy supports the development of the nervous system in the fetus. Moreover, it positively influences forming of the eyesight. The mother’s organism transports fatty acids to the growing fetus through placenta and breastfeeding mothers through milk. It allows to maintain proper development of children and reduces the risk of developmental birth defects related to its deficiency.

The influence of DHA on the development of children
The proper supply of DHA in a few years old children allows to improve the development and work of their nervous system. It enables the improvement of thinking processes and psychomotor development of children. By constituting an important element of the eyesight, it positively influences its work, thanks to which the problems related to vision are reduced.

Positive influence of the proper content of omega-3 fatty acids in a diet was also proven on such diseases as: fetal alcohol syndrome, cystic fibrosis, phenylketonuria, depression, aggression and ADHD.

DHA and old age
Fatty acids in a large part build the nervous system, therefore their proper content in food allows to reduce degeneration of this system, which takes place with age. Many studies proved that DHA deficiency may be related to losing cognitive abilities in elderly people and is conducive to the development of Alzheimer’s disease.

Positive influence on the functioning of the circulatory system
Docosahexaenoic acid helps to maintain certain fractions of cholesterol at the proper proportions, which supports reduction of the development of the atherosclerotic plaque. This effect is also strengthened by its reducing influence on the excessive amount of triglycerides in blood.

The positive influence of the proper content of this acid in a diet was also observed in relation to blood density. The results of many studies proved that it supports the reduction of excessive blood coagulation, which reduced the risk of thrombosis. Lower blood density also decreases effort that our heart is subjected to when it has to pump excessively dense blood.

Moreover, DHA supports the creation of many prostaglandins and supports their protective function related to the functioning of the endothelium of blood vessels. It enables the improvement of their structure and function.

The improvement of vision
DHA, apart from the positive influence on the development and structure of the nervous system, also supports eyesight. It constitutes a basic building block of eye retina, thanks to which it influences the activity of rhodopsin. It is a protein building photoreceptors in the eyes. DHA therefore enables more efficient transmission of information, which were registered by eyesight.

To sum up, Vegetarian DHA from Source Naturals® is a unique source of an important fatty acid, created especially for vegetarians. Proper supplementation with fatty acids supports the functioning of the human organism and supports proper development of the fetus and children and delays the occurrence of the negative consequences related to aging. High content of DHA in the portion (600 mg) allows to effectively supplement its deficiency in a diet.
