DescriptionDescription  

DEVA delivers high quality, potency and affordability all in one bottle. Our Vegan Omega-3 DHA oil comes in Vegan capsules. As an alternative to fish oil DEVA Omega-3 DHA is appreciated by vegans, vegetarians and anyone who would like to benefit from DHA as derived from algae.

DHA is an omega-3, long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid and it is one of the major building blocks of the human brain tissue and retina* The human brain is about 60% fat, and DHA is one of the most prominent structural fatty acids in both the brain and the retina*. Additionally, many scientific parties have made recommendations regarding the intake of omega-3 fatty acids for cardiovascular health. Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.

 

Unfortunately, the typical Western diet may not provide  sufficient amounts of DHA, and fatty fish or fish oils always have the risk of containing potentially harmful pollutants, such as dioxin and mercury*. Many vegetarians, vegans, and raw foods dieters are also at risk of having insufficiencies of DHA unless they supplement*

 

 The DHA used in this product is derived from algae grown under sanitary manufacturing conditions. The algae oil used in our product is extracted from the algae without the use of hexane. It is clean, safe and free of ocean borne contaminants. Now thanks to the new delayed release technology our DHA capsules withstand the stomach acid for up to three hours.  This is usually enough time for the capsule to reach the small intestine and dissolve there to reduce the likelihood of repeat issues*

 

DEVA Omega-3 DHA is 100% vegan, vegetarian and is certified by the Vegan Society, the non-profit organization that actually invented the word "vegan".
