ProDHA - Plain x 90 Soft Gels
ProDHA from Nordic Naturals is a high-potency formula, perfect for children, teenagers, and pregnant women. It is designed for enhanced neurological function, and supports learning, memory, and mood.
DHA is an essential nutrient for brain health, and original research on ProDHA has shown that it supports a healthy mood, structural integrity of the central nervous system, and cognitive function. It has also demonstrated neurological enhancement, and neuro-synaptic improvement with exercise.
Although the omega-3s EPA and DHA occur naturally together in fish oil and work together in the body, research shows that each fatty acid has unique benefits. DHA is the fatty acid that supports a healthy brain, eyes, nervous system, and mood. In fact, at least 20% of the brain is comprised of this vital fatty acid. Research shows that DHA supports memory, cognition, and emotional well-being, in addition to promoting healthy eyes.
WHY OMEGA 3'S ?
Essential Fatty Acids are nutritional cornerstones of human health. Two major families of fats are comprised under this designation, omegas 3 and 6. They are deemed "essential" because we need them for proper health - much like certain vitamins and minerals - but cannot produce them on our own. We must therefore consume these fats through diet or supplementation.
Most people associate omega-3s with cardiovascular health, but their benefits go far beyond the heart. The two main omega-3s - eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) - promote a healthy immune response that is behind the relief of many chronic conditions. However, this immune response is too often inhibited by poor nutrition.
Extensive research has documented the health benefits of EPA and DHA, which include not only a healthy heart, but brain and cognitive function, joint mobility, eye health, pregnancy and lactation, healthy skin and hair, and a normally functioning immune response.
Despite the great health benefits of omega-3s, individuals around the world suffer from omega–3 deficiency, which is becoming more well known, and one that is counted as the 8th leading cause of preventable death in the USA, among dietary, lifestyle, and metabolic risk factors. Omega–3 deficiency stems in large part from the growing unavailability of foods rich in these nutrients, principally fish, and because of the increasing popularity of the Western diet worldwide. While most diets prior to the 20th century contained a relative balance of omega–3 and omega–6 rich foods, the typical Western diet today contains far more of the omega–6s, and often damaged omega-6s. In fact, Americans have the lowest intake of omega-3 essential fatty acids of any developed country; the typical American diet contains 14–25 times more omega–6s than omega–3s! Through science and education, Nordic Naturals is committed to delivering both increased awareness and quality omega nutrition in order to address this global health concern.
