Vegan Omega-3 DHA Softgels (Gelatin-free)
- Non-Animal Softgels
- DHA derived from Algae
- Vegan Society Certified
DEVA Vegan Omega-3 DHA is a
quality product derived from algae and packaged in non-animal softgels made from
carrageenan and starch. 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. It is
known to be a major building block of human brain tissue and eye tissue, and
studies have shown it may help cognition in Alzheimer's disease.1 In
fact, the human brain consists of about sixty percent fat and essential fatty
acids like DHA are vital to its structure and function. DHA has been found to be
crucial to fetal brain development, as well as the brain development of infants
and children. It is also known to affect the heart and enhance stroke volume and
cardiac output during exercise.2 This is just one of many studies
that have shown that it helps improve cardiovascular health*
DHA has been found to also help
cardiovascular health by reducing triglyceride levels and raising HDL (good)
cholesterol levels.3 Unfortunately, our Western diet likely does not
contain adequate amounts of DHA and fish oils may contain pollutants like
mercury and dioxin.4 Pollutants may be retained in fish oils
collected from contaminated fish unless thorough distillation and filtration are
The DHA in Vegan DHA Softgels
comes from algae which has been grown under sanitary conditions and is clean,
safe and free from contaminants. The softgels are made from non-animal materials
making it one of the safest sources of vegan omega-3 fatty acids.
DEVA Omega-3 DHA is 100% vegan, vegetarian
and is certified by the Vegan Society, the non-profit organization that actually
invented the word "vegan".
