100% PLANT-BASED DHA (OMEGA-3)
Optim DHAlg is a food supplement rich in 100% plant-based DHA
DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid usually found in fatty fish. Optim DHAlg contains DHA from top quality microalgae (Schizochytrium sp.).
A daily intake of 250mg of DHA:

The three main omega-3s are ALA, EPA and DHA.
ALA (alpha-linolenic acid) is an omega-3 essential for the growth and proper functioning of cells. It is an essential omega-3 because it cannot be produced by the human body. It is found in some vegetable oils (linseed oil, rapeseed oil, walnut oil, chia oil…), in seeds (flax, pumpkin) and nuts.
EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are precursors, especially lipid mediators that reduce inflammation. DHA is a ubiquitous component of cell membranes (brain, retina…). EPA and DHA are mainly found in fatty fish (sardines, anchovies, salmon…). Some microalgae such as Shizochytrium sp. contain high levels of DHA.
DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid usually found in fatty fish. Optim DHAlg is however a food supplement rich in DHA from top quality microalgae (Schizochytrium sp.).
AN ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY PRODUCT
DHA extracted from microalgae does not cause overfishing as it may be the case with fish products.
A HIGH PURITY
Optim DHAlg is a product of quality and high purity. The patented blend of antioxidants provides optimal omega-3 fatty acid protection.
A 100% PLANT-BASED OMEGA-3
Optim DHAlg is perfectly suited for vegetarians and vegans, as well as for anyone who prefers a food supplement rich in DHA of plant origin. Optim DHAlg is registered at the Vegan Society (UK).
DHA is an omega-3 often deficient in our current diet. Optim DHAlg is therefore particularly recommended for anyone who consumes industrial food or consumes little or no fatty fish, but also and especially for pregnant or lactating women, athletes and seniors.
DHA is particularly abundant in the brain and eye membranes. For example, DHA constitutes 30 to 40% of the polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) in the cerebral cortex. DHA is also present in the retina of the eye at concentrations up to 65%.
