PROPERTIES OF THE INGREDIENTS
Wild tuna fish oil
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), an omega-3 fatty acid, is mainly concentrated in the brain and retina cells.
It has been recognized as essential for infant brain development and retinal function. Studies of preterm infants have shown the importance of dietary DHA in learning.DHA has further been shown to play an important role in treating ADD/ADHD.
Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) also belongs to the omega-3 family and is essential for the production of anti-inflammatory compounds.
DHA and EPA are found primarily in cold water fish such as salmon, sardines, mackerel and tuna. However, to receive the highest concentration of DHA, tuna is the richest source.
Wild Fish oil
Mackerel, Anchovy, Sardine
Borage oil (Borago officinalis) (seed)
Omega-6 fatty acids, particularly dihomo-gamma linolenic acid (DGLA) and gamma linolenic acid (GLA), the precursor to DGLA, also play an important role in healthy brain function.
Researchers have shown a DGLA deficiency in children with hyperactivity. Valuable quantities of GLA are found in borage and evening primrose oil, with borage being the richest source, containing 20% GLA.
Certified Organic Flax seed oil, cold pressed (Linum usitatissimum L) Another omega-3 fatty acid, alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), is found in high quantities in flaxseed and flaxseed oil.
ALA is the parent omega-3 and precursor to EPA and DHA. Experimental studies have shown that ALA supports learning and memory. ALA is metabolized into DHA, providing additional benefits to the brain.
Soy lecithin (Glycine max) (bean) providing: Phosphatidyl choline (9 mg)
Phosphatidyl choline (PC) which can be found in soy lecithin, is a component of all cells in the body.
It also acts as a source of choline which is the starting material for the synthesis of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter involved in learning and memory. Studies have shown that supplementation with PC helps in learning and memory.
Vitamin E (d-alpha-tocopherol)
Vitamin E is a valuable additive to any EFA oil, as it helps prevent oxidation of the oil.
DIRECTIONS: Pregnant and breastfeeding women: Take 1/2 to 1 teaspoon daily. Refrigerate after opening.
