Everyone knows the importance of getting enough omega-3 oils for cardiovascular health, but did you know there’s a particular omega-3 that may be vital for the health of your brain – especially as you age?
WHAT IS DHA AND WHY DOES IT MATTER TO ME?
Docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA, is one of the two main omega-3s in fish oil and krill oil. DHA is also a major structural component of our brains and is also found in high concentrations in the membranes of cells throughout our central nervous systems. It’s also known to support the health of our eyes, as well as the delicate retina. In fact, DHA plays a vital role in helping to maintain our brain health throughout life and may even be important for maintaining cognitive function as you age. Research suggests that higher intakes of DHA in the diet may be associated with better cognitive function in the elderly and that low levels of DHA may be linked to poor memory function.**
With a whopping 470mg of DHA per capsule, Australian NaturalCare’s new Calamari Oil 1000 may provide you with that extra support for brain and eye health that you are looking for.
WHY IS CALAMARI OIL BETTER FOR ME?
Not only is Calamari Oil super-charged with DHA, it also contains EPA, or Eicosapentaenoic acid, the other main omega-3 that makes fish oil and krill oil so good for you. This combination means that in addition to the extra support for your brain health, you still have the benefits for your heart and cardiovascular health that omega3s are so well known for. It may also help reduce and relieve the symptoms of osteoarthritis including joint swelling, pain and inflammation.
