Our DHA

molecule

All our products are based on our DHA molecule, Tridocosahexaenoína-AOX® . As a result of more than 10 years of research with the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of the University of Barcelona, has the greater antioxidant capacity comparing with other products in its category.

 

Characterized by:

  • 70% concentrated DHA triglyceride from fish oil, the most physiological form of DHA.

  • Enzymatic Synthesis, we do not heat or treat the oil under extreme pH, preserving its bioactivity (double bonds).

  • High proportion of DHA in the SN-2 position of triglyceride, which facilitates its incorporation as a phospholipid to cell membrane, guaranteeing maximum bioavailability.

  • Strict control of enviromental pollutants,  all the batches are contaminants free, following the European legislation and GOED (Global Organization for EPA and DHA) requirements. We have at the disposal of those who request the Analytical Certificates.

  • Our DHA enjoys the international "Friend of the Sea" seal, which guarantees that it has been obtained from controlled fishing fish oil, known as "Sustainable Oil".

Omega-3

We obtain highly concentred
DHA triglycerides derived from fish oil

The essential fatty acids (Omega 3 and Omega 6) are vital for health because our bodies are unable to make them and we have to obtain them externally through food.

For many tissues in our body to operate correctly, such as the brain (made up of approximately 60% of lipids and with a very high rate of energy consumption), they need essential fatty acids.

The most crucial of these acids are the Omega 3. Several basic, clinical and epidemiological studies have reported considerable advantages in ingesting Omega-3 fatty acids in such varied fields as cardiology, neurology, oncology, chronic inflammatory pathologies, ophthalmology, paediatrics, gynaecology, dermatology...

Both EPA and its derivative DHA can be synthesised in our bodies from alpha-linolenic acid, but the efficacy of the conversion is so low that it requires the additional nutritional support of acids preformed to cover our needs. However, DHA is the Omega 3 fatty acid that is vital for our bodies. It is much more effective to supply preformed DHA directly through the diet than to administer its ALA and EPA precursors, from which our bodies synthesize DHA in a very inefficient manner.

The most important Omega 3 fatty acids are in:

  • Alfa-linolenic (ALA): In nuts, canola oil and the green parts of green leaves.

  • Eicosapentaenoico (EPA) Docosahexaenoico (DHA): In blue fish such as tuna, salmon and sardines or in shellfish and algae.
