Vegan Omega 3 DHA Supplement
Getting adequate amounts of both omega 3 DHA and ALA are important for cellular health.
They are an integral part of cell membranes throughout the body and affect the function of the cell receptors in these membranes. They provide the starting point for making hormones that regulate blood clotting, contraction and relaxation of artery walls, and inflammation.
Omega-3 fats have been shown to help prevent heart disease and stroke, may help control lupus, eczema, and rheumatoid arthritis, and may play protective roles in cancer and other conditions, such as health brain function.
In fact, omega 3 DHA is vitally important in brain formation. Especially in the third trimester, a baby requires a lot of it due to the fact that the brain grows faster in this time period than any time throughout one’s life. Children need it, and adults, especially as we age. There is no period throughout one’s life that it is not required for proper health. Unfortunately, it one of several nutrients that is often deficient.
Two Types of Omega 3 … DHA and ALA
Omega 3 DHA/EPA: Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) come mainly from fish, so they are sometimes called marine omega-3s. Actually, this type of omega 3 is found in specific algae. The algae is eaten, thus ends up in various sea life sources.
Omega 3 ALA/EPA: Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), the most common omega-3 fatty acid in most Western diets, is found in vegetable oils and nuts (especially walnuts), ‘fresh’ flax seeds, chia seeds, and leafy vegetables, and some animal fat, if grass-fed.
