Flora's DHA Flax Oil is a vegetarian source of unrefined DHA, blended with organic Flora Flax Oil to provide you with a DHA-rich oil from tank-grown algae. DHA, or Docosahexaenoic Acid, is an omega-3 fatty acid that is essential for the proper functioning of our brains as adults, and for the development of our nervous system during the first six months of life. This makes DHA supplementation extremely important for pregnant and nursing women. Because Flora DHA Flax Oil uses only cultivated algae instead of fish oil, it is naturally free of ocean-borne contaminants like PCBs, dioxins and mercury. As an added environmental benefit, cultivated algae are a completely renewable resource that does not have a detrimental impact on the depletion of fisheries anywhere in the world!
