Not all DHA Fish Oils are Equal!
When comparing DHA supplements, always look at the percentage of DHA and form of DHA. Fish oil with high DHA percentage and is in rTG form is more desirable for its higher absorption, bioavailability and potency.
Omega-3 is made up of DHA, EPA and DPA. Many take omega-3 fish oils to support heart health and overall wellness. But, the DHA:EPA ratio may be different! OmaxPure DHA76 has a higher DHA and lower EPA content to effectively penetrate the blood-brain barrier and exert positive effects on brain & cognitive functioning as well as eye health.
The recommended daily DHA intake is at least 500mg of EPA and DHA each day. 1 OmaxPure DHA76 softgel is ultra-concentrated with 950mg of DHA (from 1250mg of fish oil). It is the quickest and easiest way to obtain needed DHA nutrients.

OmaxPure fish oils are formulated in functional dosages to meet the daily omega-3 requirement for all age groups. Supporting optimal development and overall wellness, these highly concentrated fish oils are also extremely pure and safe.
Research Proven Health Benefits of DHA:
1. Support brain health
DHA, a dominant omega-3 fatty acid in the brain, is essential for optimal cognitive performance. The accumulation of DHA has been observed in areas of the brain involved in memory and attention such as the cerebral cortex and hippocampus. In animal studies, deficiency of DHA in the brain has been shown to critically affect the neuronal development and behavior, including changes in learning, memory. As DHA status is dependent on dietary intakes, individuals who consume diets low in omega-3 fatty acid may cognitively benefit from DHA supplementation.
In this clinical trial, 176 healthy adults aged from 18 to 45 years old with a low dietary intake of DHA were orally administered 1.16 g DHA or a placebo daily for 6 months. Their cognitive performance was assessed using a computerized cognitive test battery and z scores were calculated. Compared to placebo, DHA supplementation significantly improved reaction times of episodic and working memory, with a decrease in reaction time indicates an improvement. In addition, DHA supplementation improved episodic memory in women and reaction time of working memory in men, compared to placebo. In brief, young adults whose habitual diets were low in DHA could benefit from DHA supplementation in improving their memory and reaction time.
2. Beneficial to brain and eye development in fetus & babies
Essentially needed in pregnancy, DHA provides multiple benefits to the fetus, especially on the brain and eye development. The brain and eyes of fetus will develop rapidly during the last trimester of pregnancy, as well as during first few years after birth. Hence, it is important for the pregnant women and lactating mothers to consume sufficient amount of DHA. This is because the DHA is passed from the mother to the infant during pregnancy in the third trimester and through breast milk. Preterm babies will benefit with DHA supplementation since these babies will obtain lesser DHA from their preterm birth. It is suggested that pregnant woman should take at least 200 milligrams (mg) of DHA before, during, and after pregnancy, while lack of DHA would compromise fetal development.
In a clinical trial, 14 pregnant women were administered with 300mg DHA-containing cereal bars from week 24 of gestation until delivery while another 15 pregnant women were treated with placebo bars. The infants were then administered with Infant Planning Test at the age of 9 months old. The procedure was scored on the basis of the infant's performance on each step and on the entire problem (intention score and total intentional solutions) in the problem-solving trial which included a support step and a search step. The scores were generated on the basis of the cumulative performance of the infant on 5 trials.
Infants of mothers who consumed a DHA-containing food during pregnancy showed significant improvements in performance of problem-solving tasks: total intention score (P = 0.017), total intentional solutions (P = 0.011), and number of intentional solutions on both cloth (P = 0.008) and cover (P = 0.004) steps. These findings suggest the beneficial effects of DHA supplementation during pregnancy on problem-solving performance of infants.
3. Increase omega-3 index
The omega-3 index is a measure of the amount of EPA and DHA in red blood cell membranes. Research has shown that omega-3 index level of 8 – 12% is associated with better health, including brain, eyes, heart and joints. Nonetheless, majority of people globally have an omega-3 index below 8%, which is likely to be attributed to the low-fish diet. Hence, DHA supplementation is a crucial approach to improve omega-3 index, thereby improving general wellness.
In this clinical trial, 48 men and 106 women with abdominal obesity and subclinical inflammation were randomised to a sequence of treatment phases: 1-2.7g/d of EPA, 2-2.7g/d of DHA, and 3-3g/d of corn oil (0g of EPA + DHA). The subjects took all the supplements as 3 × 1 g capsules giving for a total of 3g/d for the 10-week treatment phases separated by nine-week washouts. Fatty acid composition of red blood cell membrane and omega-3 index were assessed at baseline and the end of each phase.
It was found that the omega-3 index significantly increased after DHA supplementation, with this increase significantly greater than after EPA supplementation. As the omega-3 index has been shown to predict cardiovascular events, the greater increase in omega-3 index with DHA supplementation than EPA supplementation is consistent with the greater potency of DHA to modulate cardiovascular risk factors.
4. Improve cardiovascular health
Cardiovascular disease, which is problems with the heart, blood vessels or both, affect people of all ages. In general, the risk cardiovascular disease increases with age. Omega-3 fatty acids, including DHA have been recommended by the American Heart Association to support cardiovascular health.
In clinical trial, 38 healthy men and women aged between 40 to 65 years were administered with either 0.7 g DHA/day or placebo. Each treatment phase lasted for 3 months and separated with a 4-month washout period. It was found that the intake of DHA increased proportion of DHA in erythrocytes lipids by 58%, compared with placebo. In addition, the diastolic blood pressure decreased by 3.3 mm Hg and heart rate tended to be 2.1 beats/min lower after DHA treatment than after the placebo period. A lower heart rate would indicate a better health as the heart pumps more blood with each contraction. In brief, these findings suggest that a moderate increase in the daily intake of DHA to about 0.7 g DHA is beneficial to cardiovascular health.
