General Nutritional Support
DHA, Docosahexaenoic Acid is a polyunsaturated fatty acid, and is an essential building block of brain & nerve tissue. DHA, can not be synthesized by the body, and therefore must be obtained by a diet high in deep sea cold water fish. DHA, which constitutes approximately 40% of the brain, supports brain development during the last trimester of pregnancy when the unborn childs demand for neurological growth increases greatly. If added to the mothers diet, it can help prevent the depletion of the mothers store of DHA, and support the developing babys essential fatty acid needs.
Currently, the proposed Adequate Intake of DHA for pregnant and lactating woman is 300 mg. per day.
Clinical investigations are continually carried out showing the importance of DHA and Omega 3 fatty acids in maintaining optimal health.
ProDHA facilitates normal growth and development of the central nervous system, as well as the brain, eyes, and reproductive organs. Did you know that DHA makes up over 60% of brain and nerve tissue in the human body

DHA & ALA?
DHA is one of the omega-3 fats, the good fats that can protect your eyes, brain and heart, and found in fish oil and algae.
Another important omega-3 fat is ALA ( alpha-linolenic acid), in chia, flax and walnuts, which the body eventually, but in small quantities, converts to DHA.
A third omega-3 fat is EPA, also found in fish oil.
Walnuts and chia seeds are sources of ALA and do not contain any DHA. Nuts and seeds are not nutritional equivalents to fish oil or algae oil with respect to omega-3 content.
Humans have a limited ability to convert ALA to DHA: Less than 1 percent of it is turned into DHA (although women convert it better than men do). Western diets limit their ability to convert it even more because they eat too many omega-6 fats from corn and soybean oils (Americans average 18 grams a day of omega-6 fat from these oils).
The trouble is that these omega-6 fatty acids compete with ALA for conversion. So, for instance, if a person consumed an ounce of walnuts per day, they'd get approximately 2,500 mg of ALA. But it would, at best, convert to just 25 mg of DHA, a small fraction of the DHA necessary (600 mg) for optimal health.
ALA itself isn't bad: Some research shows that it can have positive effects on heart health (DHA does too). But for brain development and health, research has shown only DHA to be beneficial.
The only way to achieve the DHA blood and tissue levels essential for optimal health and disease risk reduction is to get at least 600 mg of preformed DHA per day through fish, foods fortified with DHA or DHA supplements from algae oil or fish oil.
ProDHA is the way to ensure adequate intake of the essential brain nutrient, DHA. ProDHA is encapsulated in small, easy-to-swallow 500 mg soft gel capsules, and provides 50% DHA and 20% EPA. Molecularly distilled for purity and concentration, ProDHA has been further enhanced with strawberry essence for great taste and rosemary extract for superior freshness.
