As the demand for Omega 3 increases, there is are more and more problems with the sustainability and contamination of fish oil.
A brand new process has been developed in Switzerland, which extracts high levels of EPA and DHA from algae into a low cost, readily available supplement called V Pure.
Omega 3 Brain Food
The brain is rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids. DHA makes up about 25% of the fatty acids in grey matter cell membranes, and ensures that the messages between the brain cells are sent quickly and clearly. A lack of DHA can cause a slower message transmission which can affect brain development in babies and mental agility and memory in adults.
Pregnancy and infancy
Studies have found that DHA requirements of pregnant women and the developing foetus are high, especially during the last three months of pregnancy (Al et al 2000, Hornstra 2000). The baby in the womb depends on the mother for DHA intake, necessary for healthy visual and brain development.
The quantity of EPA and DHA contained in breast milk has declined by up to 50% over the last fifteen years, with UK breast milk now containing less than half that of breast milk in Japan, where the diet is predominantly fish based. There is clinical evidence to show that brain development in the womb, in early and adult life is affected by low levels of Epa and DHA.
The Government recommendation is 0.2g per day of the two long chain Omega-3 essential fatty acids DHA , Docosahexaenoic Acid and EPA , Eicosapentaenoic acid, combined. Average UK intakes are 0.1g per day. COMA report 46. Published in 1994 by HMSO. Source: Food Standards Agency.
