Opti-DHA enteric-coated softgels, provided by Douglas Laboratories, contain a novel ratio of essential omega- 3 fatty acids, derived from marine lipid concentrate. Processed by molecular distillation, Opti-DHA is an excellent source of these fatty acids, providing 450 mg of docosahexeanoic acid(DHA) and 150 mg eicosapentaenoic acid(EPA) per serving.
The omega-3 fatty acid EPA is the direct precursor for the anti-inflammatory prostaglandins E1 and E3, whereas DHA is of primary importance for the structural integrity of neuronal membranes. DHA is essential for brain and visual development and is vital throughout pregnancy to support fetal brain growth and formation of the retina and visual cortex. As the most abundant fatty acid in the brain, adequate amounts of DHA are needed throughout infancy and adulthood for ongoing optimal function. Low levels of DHA may adversely influence behavior and mental performance, and have been correlated with changes in disposition, memory loss, and visual and other neurological conditions.
DHA, along with EPA may play an important role in cardiovascular health. Omega-3 fatty acids can have a direct cardiac effect on arrhythmogenesis. Omega- 3 fatty acids may be able to modify sodium channels by binding to the channel proteins.
Opti-DHA may be a useful dietary adjunct for individuals wishing to supplement their diets with the essential fatty acids DHA and EPA. Additionally, Opti-DHA is enteric-coated, significantly reducing the “fishy” taste sometimes associated with marine lipid supplements.
As a dietary supplement, adults take 2 capsules daily or as directed by your helathcare professional.
