Omega-3 DHA from Veggunn algae is a food supplement based on Schyzochitrium sp microalgae oil, contained in softgel capsules (pearls) of plant origin.
Omega-3 DHA Veggunn reaches 99% of DHA content, reaching only 1% of EPA and other medium and long chains of omega 3. This high performance is achieved thanks to the purity of the original source of 40% of the microalgae, fermented in Europe.
DHA is a polyunsaturated essential fatty acid derived from long omega-3 chains. They are part of the membranes of our cells.
In addition, they exert an anti-inflammatory effect and participate in the neurodevelopment of the cognitive system. These functions make them especially interesting in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases and the development and maturation of the nervous system.
It is important for the proper performance of brain functions (as it participates in neurogenesis, in the migration of neurons from ventricular areas to the periphery, in myelination and in synaptogenesis)
Where we get DHA
We can find DHA naturally already in breast milk. Oily fish is a secondary source of this fatty acid. The original source of omega-3 is found in some marine algae, since it is the food of these fish that they obtain from them. In this way, vegans or vegetarians can find omega-3 according to their diet.
Although the body obtains DHA through food, the amounts that are synthesized are very low and a large volume of these products would have to be ingested to achieve favorable levels of this essential fatty acid. This could be a problem, especially with oily fish: its heavy metal content, if consumed in excess, tends to
stored in the basal ganglia of the brain, which hinders neural communication, which slows down.
