A 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
sustainable source of Omega 3-6-9 & DHA.
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. *

The 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 Plays
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 benefits:
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.
