This makes an excellent alternative to fish oil and can be confidently used by vegetarians and vegans alike. Vegans are particularly prone to diets low in omega-3 fatty acids. DHA is a long chain polyunsaturated omega-3 oil. It is an essential fatty acid, meaning that the body doesn't produce it by itself and it must be obtained in the diet. DHA is one of the most prominent essential fatty acids in the brain and in the retina. DHA has been found to be very important for fetal brain development, as well as the brain development of infants and children. * Omega-3 Oils ,including DHA, has been found to also help cardiovascular health*. Supportive but inconclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Unfortunately, typical Western dietdoes not likely contain adequate amounts of DHA and fish oils may contain pollutants like mercury and dioxin*. Pollutants may be retained in fish oils collected from contaminated fish unless thorough distillation and filtration are employed.
