Vegetarian Source of Omega 3-6-9 & DHA
Most people believe that fish are a rich source of DHA,
when in fact fish get DHA from the algae in their food chain. LifeSource
Vitamins goes straight to the source, producing DHA from the same microalgae
sources fish get it from. Grown in a controlled environment, our Gummies are a
vegetarian and sustainable source of Omega
3-6-9 & DHA.
3-6-9: This combination of
well-known nutritional oils provides a unique balance of Omega-3 and Omega-6
Essential Fatty Acids plus Omega-9, a non-essential, but beneficial fatty acid.
The Omega-3's, Alpha Linolenic Acid, EPA and DHA, and the Omega-6, GLA, are
necessary for the maintenance of cardiovascular, nervous system and skin
health. Oleic Acid, an Omega-9, has also been shown to promote a healthy
vascular system. *

Omega-3 Facts - There are Good Fats and Bad Fats!
It is often said that Americans consume too much fat, but
in the U.S. and other parts of the world, many people don't eat enough good
fat. While consuming diets high in saturated and trans fats have been shown to
raise LDL or "bad" cholesterol levels and increase the risk of
coronary heart disease, foods high in polyunsaturated fats, specifically
omega-3 fatty acids, are important for good health. When attempting to avoid
the “bad fats” it is important to not cut out the ”good” fats as well. So, how
can you tell which fats are good and which fats are bad?
What Is DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid)?
Docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA, is a
polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acid found throughout the body. It is a major
structural fat in the brain and retina accounting for up to 97% of the omega-3
fats in the brain and up to 93% of the omega-3 fats in the retina. It is also a
key component of the heart. Numerous studies confirm that everyone, from
infants to adults, benefits from an adequate supply of DHA.
DHA in the Diet
As awareness of the importance of DHA
continues to grow, more attention is being paid to the fact that adults may
need to supplement their diets with DHA. On average, the typical American diet
contains less than 100mg/day, well below recommendations by expert bodies. A
growing awareness of the dietary sources of DHA and the inclusion of DHA in certain
fortified foods and supplements is making it easier for people to include this
important nutrient in their diets every day.
Kids especially need DHA.
Understanding the Role that Each Omega-3
Today, more and more food products
claim to be a good source of omega-3's, but not all omega-3's are created
equal. There are three major omega-3 fatty acids each with distinct health
Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA)
DHA, a long chain omega-3 fatty acid,
is the most abundant omega-3 in the brain and retina. It is also an important
structural component of heart tissue and naturally found in breastmilk.
Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA)
EPA, a long chain omega-3 fatty acid,
is important for human health. However, unlike DHA, EPA is not stored in
significant levels in the brain and retina and is not considered a significant
structural part of the body.
Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA)
ALA, an essential fatty acid (EFA), is
a shorter-chain omega-3 fatty acid that serves as a source of energy. It is
also a precursor for EPA and DHA and is needed for skin health.
