Information about SAMDHA DROPS
Each ml contains: Docosahexaenoic acid 250 mg (Equivalent to 100 mg of DHA)
SAM-DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is an omega-3 fatty acid made by algae which is the Vegetarian Source of DHA Which is commonly used for boosting memory and thinking skills, for aiding infant and child development, for certain eye disorders, and many other conditions.DHA ensures high-level cognitive function which in turn ensures social, emotional, and behavioral development.
Discovery of algae-based DHA
In the early 1980s, NASA sponsored scientific research on a plant-based food source that could generate oxygen and nutrition on long-duration space flights. Certain species of marine algae produced rich nutrients, leading to the development of algae-based, vegetable-like oil that contains two polyunsaturated fatty acids, DHA and arachidonic acid
Studies of vegetarians and vegans
Vegetarian diets typically contain limited amounts of DHA, and vegan diets typically contain no DHA. In preliminary research, algae-based supplements increased DHA levels. While there is little evidence of adverse health or cognitive effects due to DHA deficiency in adult vegetarians or vegans, breast milk levels remain a concern for supplying adequate DHA to the developing fetus.
Brain and visual functions
A major structural component of the mammalian central nervous system, DHA is the most abundant omega−3 fatty acid in the brain and retina. Brain and retinal function rely on dietary intake of DHA to support a broad range of cell membrane and cell signaling properties, particularly in grey matter and retinal photoreceptor cell outer segments, which are rich in membranes.
DHA can cause nausea, intestinal gas. DHA can cause fishy taste, belching, and loose stools. Taking DHA with meals can often decrease these side effects.
