DHA Omega 3 Fatty Acids
Research has proven that DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) has the ability to support brain and eye development and health in dogs. Only DHA Omega 3, the longest chain omega-3 fatty acid can provide these benefits. ALA (alpha-linolenic acid), most commonly found in flax and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), found in fish oil are not direct sources of DHA. Since dogs are inefficient in converting these short chain omega-3′s into DHA, a preformed source, such as our DHA O-3™ is preferred. Most people believe that fish produce their own DHA, when, in fact, it’s the algae they consume from the ocean floor that makes them a rich source of DHA. Our product bypasses the fish, and goes directly to the source – algae, avoiding any concerns of ocean-bourne contaminants.
