DHA Gold

Omega-3 fatty acids, also known as polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), are essential fatty acids that are implicated in several bodily functions. The body cannot produce these fatty acids on its own, making it necessary to get the required amounts from food (e.g. fatty fish) or via supplementation. Omega-3 fatty acids can be found in fish, such as salmon, cod, tuna, and halibut. They can also be found in other marine food sources, such as krill and algae, as well as in some terrestrial plants and nut oils.

Perhaps best known for their crucial role in supporting cardiovascular and joint health, omega-3 fatty acids are also extremely important for brain function and normal growth and development. The most significant omega-3 fatty acids are DHA and EPA, both of which are found in differing ratios in most commercially available fish oil supplements.

DHA (short for docosahexaenoic acid) is beneficial for brain health because of its spatial characteristics and its ability to maintain membrane fluidity. In the human body, it is primarily used in the brain, cerebral cortex, skin, and retina. Although the body can synthesize small amounts of DHA from alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), supplementation is usually recommended to meet the body's optimal DHA requirements.

EPA (short for eicosapentaenoic acid) can help support the body's natural inflammation response at the cellular level, making it highly advantageous for cardiovascular support. But it gets rapidly oxidized in the brain, which is why many believe its affect on the brain is negligible. However, that’s not entirely true.

EPA can assist the brain’s efforts to combat neurological inflammation by competing for access to the same enzymes that arachidonic acid (AA) needs to cause inflammation. In this way, EPA does offer some neurological protection. Similarly, DHA is thought to increase the size of low-density lipoproteins, inhibiting their entry into the muscle cells of arteries; this offers cardiovascular benefits.

Therefore, regardless of intent, neither EPA’s nor DHA’s importance should be underestimated. A better way to think about EPA and DHA is that they each offer benefits that the other does not, but they also offer some synergistic benefits that can only be attained by taking a supplement that contains both in therapeutic amounts. This is why even those products marketed as high-EPA or high-DHA supplements usually contain small amounts of the other fatty acid for comprehensive protection.

For most people, we recommend a well balanced omega-3 supplement like our popular Double Strength and Triple Strength fish oils. But if you’re primarily interested in an omega-3 supplement to support brain and eye health, then DHA Gold is the fish oil for you. Specifically formulated to feature a 4:1 DHA to EPA ratio, it is a high-potency omega-3 supplement that maximizes all the positive effects DHA can provide.

MSC Certified

The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) is a nonprofit organization that addresses the issue of unsustainable fishing, and helps safeguard seafood supplies for the future. Their official seal on DHA Gold shows that we do our part to secure a healthy future for our planet's oceans.

Free of 7 Common Allergens

We like to make supplements that can be enjoyed by everyone. That's why our products are always compliant with the best practices for avoiding allergens and minimizing cross-contamination. DHA Gold is free of soy, gluten, egg, milk, peanut, shellfish, and corn allergens.

Made Without Magnesium Stearate

The use of magnesium stearate is a topic of contention in the supplement industry, with some studies suggesting it can have long-term health consequences. Our take on the matter is simple: as long as magnesium stearate has yet to be proven safe, we WILL NOT use it in any of our products.
