DHA for Dietary Supplements
While it has been shown that DHA is important for health and development, it’s difficult for most people to get enough through diet alone. This is because the primary dietary sources of DHA are limited to organ meat and fatty fish. And, although expert bodies such as the American Heart Association and the USDA (through its Dietary Guidelines for Americans) recommend eating fish regularly, other agencies including the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) caution against eating certain types of fish because of contaminant concerns (See Fish Advisories
). Fortunately, as the interest in improving health through nutrition continues to grow, and research continues to demonstrate just how important DHA is to our health, the demand for DHA supplements with DHA will continue to increase.
life'sDHA Adds Tremendous Value
There is a growing number of adults who are looking for ways to keep their aging brains healthy. In 2000, there were more than 56 million Americans over the age of 55. And, according to the results of a national survey, memory loss (from Alzheimer’s or dementia) was the leading health fear among people aged 55 and older. In fact, a recently published nutritional study in Alzheimer's & Dementia: The Journal of the Alzheimer's Association has demonstrated the benefits of algal DHA in improving memory in older adults.* Supplements containing DHA, an important brain fat, is an easy and effective way for adults to get the DHA that may be missing in their diets.
*Based on a clinical study using 900mg DHA/day for 6 months in healthy adults 55 with a mild memory complaint.
