This Vegan omega 3 is important for optimal health because it contains DHA & EPA.
DHA contributes to:
- maintaining normal brain function (the beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 250mg of DHA)
- promoting normal vision
I may also recommend maternal intake of DHA during pregnancy, because it contributes to the normal development of the brain and eyes of the foetus.
DHA and EPA contribute to:
- supporting of normal blood pressure
- maintaining normal blood triglyceride and cholesterol levels
- the normal function of the heart
Vegan Omega 3 is one of the three supplements I consider pillars for optimal health, alongside a good probiotic and a multi vitamins/minerals.
Vegan omegas are my preferred essential fatty acid for a daily use, because they are environmentally and animal friendly. But I will prefer a fish based omegas because they may be more concentrated and therapeutic.
