Omega-3 DHA-EPA Dr. Jacob's
Oil from the micro-algae Schizochytrium sp. rich in Omega-3 unsaturated fatty acids. Vegan product.
Unsaturated fatty acids DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) are one of the essential building components - they are an irreplaceable building element of all body cells. They must be supplied with food, as the body does not have the ability to produce an adequate amount of these acids. DHA supplementation is especially important when consuming small amounts of fish (the main source of DHA).
DHA-EPA is one of the few products on the market that can also be used by vegetarians and vegans. Algae are a healthy, plant-based alternative as a source of health-important omega-3 fatty acids. The oil in DHA-EPA is derived from the microalgae Schizochytrium sp. Just one capsule of DHA-EPA contains as much as 250mg of DHA and EPA acids in a 2:1 ratio (approx. 167 mg DHA, approx. 83 mg EPA).
DHA plays a very important role in building of the brain and for vision, especially in a foetus and a small child (in the central nervous system and the retina it constitutes as much as ca 30% of phospholipids). DHA supplementation is especially important for pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers. DHA deficiency reduces the concentration of serotonin (hormone of happiness) in the brain, and may be related to the occurrence of ADHD, Alzheimer's disease and depression.
DHA and EPA acids are recommended:
- for the maintenance of normal brain function and proper vision (with a daily intake of 250 mg DHA - 2 capsules),
- for correct heart function (with daily intake of 250 mg of DHA and EPA - 1 capsule)
- in case of learning difficulties at school and poor learning ability
- in case of memory and concentration disorders,
- in case of psychomotor overexcitability.
In pregnant and breast-feeding women:
- for the development of the child's nervous system (psychomotor and intellectual functions),
- For correct development and functioning of the organ of vision in a child.
