At Purity Products, there’s no question about it. We love DHA. Whether it’s the DHA found in every cell in our bodies, or the pure DHA we offer in our dietary supplements, our love of this precious fatty acid continues to grow.
Of course, DHA is lovable for many reasons.
For example, a biochemist, as nerdy is it would be, might love it for its distinctive title as the world’s longest and most unsaturated omega 3 fatty acid.
Ornithologists should admire DHA for its fascinating role in the flight muscles of hummingbirds, capable of flapping over 50 times per second, and where it’s unusually high abundance is key to what is surely one of the animal kingdom’s most dazzling feats.
For the cardiologist, ophthalmologist or the brain researcher, DHA must be equally as wondrous, for not only are the brain, visual system, and heart brimming with DHA, but more importantly, the clinical significance of DHA supplementation in all these areas is now widely accepted for its many benefits.
If you’re an exerciser, you will learn love DHA. A recent study published in the American Journal Clinical Nutrition showed that fish oil supplementation (1560mg DHA + 360mg EPA) yielded very positive results for body composition, as well as the various cardiovascular measures they examined.
So while you might not be able to flap your arms like a hummingbird, you’ll clearly be better off increasing your DHA intake. As far as Purity Products is concerned, America needs to get the message: It’s Baseball, Mom, Apple Pie and now DHA. Think there’s room on Mt. Rushmore for a fish oil gel-cap? I bet TR, a fitness buff in his day, would’ve appreciated it.
