DEVA Vegan Omega-3 DHA is a quality product derived from algae and packaged in non-animal softgels made from carrageenan and starch. This makes an excellent alternative to fish oil and can be confidently used by vegetarians and vegans alike. Vegans are particularly prone to diets low in omega-3 fatty acids. DHA is a long chain polyunsaturated omega-3 oil. It is an essential fatty acid, meaning that the body doesn’t produce it by itself and it must be obtained in the diet. It is known to be a major building block of human brain tissue and eye tissue, and studies have shown it may help cognition in Alzheimer’s disease.1 In fact, the human brain consists of about sixty percent fat and essential fatty acids like DHA are vital to its structure and function. DHA has been found to be crucial to fetal brain development, as well as the brain development of infants and children. It is also known to affect the heart and enhance stroke volume and cardiac output during exercise.2 This is just one of many studies that have shown that it helps improve cardiovascular health* DHA has been found to also help cardiovascular health by reducing triglyceride levels and raising HDL (good) cholesterol levels.3 Unfortunately, our Western diet likely does not contain adequate amounts of DHA and fish oils may contain pollutants like mercury and dioxin.4 Pollutants may be retained in fish oils collected from contaminated fish unless thorough distillation and filtration are employed
Whether the DHA is doing anything for me I can't say for sure. I do think I finish newspaper puzzles faster because of it, but that's not based on any scientific study. What I like about these capsules is that they look fresh. A previous version of these used a casing that looked like the capsules were quite old and seemed rigid, if not more difficult to swallow. These are not unlike my wife's gelatin based capsules. As a committed vegetarian (who would have thought that I would out myself on Amazon) it was important to not use animal products at all and DEVA's product lives up to that and the quality of the product is an added bonus.
