Nurture your brain, skin and baby’s development without fishy taste repeating on you.
In adult life, the brain consists of 60% fatty acids, of which 14% are omega-3, comprising 97% DHA. In the developing unborn foetus, DHA begins to make neural connections in brains by the third trimester, and the nursing mother continues to give DHA through her breastmilk. DHA supports brain and eye development.
DHA (Omega 3) is lacking in most standard diets. While omega 3 can be found in fatty fish, such as salmon, mackerel and tuna, many of us don’t eat enough of it. Also, this source is not vegan and for those concerned about marine animal species populations, sourcing your omega 3s from plentiful, vegan algae is an option.
DHA liposomes are little bubbles of sunflower phospholipids which surround and protect the DHA nutrient. These little nutrient bubbles can pass through the blood/brain barrier, carrying the DHA into the brain for rich nourishment.
