Excipients: naturally mixed tocopherols, fish gelatine.

Guaranteed to contain no: GMO, maize, yeast, gluten, lactose, added saccharose, artificial preservatives, artificial colouring and flavouring agents, artificial odours.

Essential fatty acids can quickly oxidise after coming in contact with oxygen. To prevent this from happening, naturally mixed tocopherols are added to DHA Forte. The fatty acids in this product

are present in their natural triglyceride form and not in the form of fatty acid esters.

The capsule wall is made of fish gelatine.
The fish oil is made from sardines, anchovies and mackerel caught off the coast of Peru.

No endangered species are used. Fishery is regulated by the Peruvian government to make

sure overfishing does not take place.

 

DESCRIPTION
Essential fatty acids, especially docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and arachidonic acid, are important components of the brain cell membrane and the myelin sheath around the nerves.
Unlike saturated fatty acids, whose carbon forms a straight chain, polyunsaturated fatty acids have a branched carbon chain. A higher level of polyunsaturated fatty acids in the cell membrane makes it more flexible; this has beneficial effects on the function of the membrane. The mother provides the child with large amounts of polyunsaturated fatty acids during the last trimester of pregnancy and while lactating. She uses her own reserves to do this and gets her own daily requirement of essential fatty acids from her diet. DHA is particularly important: the DHA-level in breast milk is higher when the mother eats more fish and other types of seafood. A good DHA-status is essential for both mother and child.

A good DHA-status of the baby promotes a healthy physical and psychological development;

DHA is good for vision and supports the development of the nervous system. A good DHA-status

of the mother supports metabolism in general. It supports the transfer of stimuli between cells and is therefore beneficial for a clear mind and supports concentration, memory and learning.

Most important features of DHA Forte:

  • Contains 225 mg DHA per capsule
  • High concentration of DHA compared to EPA (EPA:DHA-ratio of 2:5)
  • The fatty acids in this product are present in it’s natural triglyceride form and not in the form of fatty acid esters
  • Contains fish oil from sardines, anchovies and mackerel. No endangered species are used
  • The fish oil is highly purified and therefore low in heavy metals, dioxins and other contaminants
  • The capsule is made of fish gelatine, and is therefore suitable for people who abstain from beef or pork products
  • Natural mixed tocopherols (instead of only vitamin E) have been added to prevent oxidation from occurring
  • The capsules can be stored outside the refrigerator

 

USE
Maintenance dose: take 1 to 2 capsules daily (300-500 mg EPA + DHA) during or immediately after a meal. When necessary the dose can be increased to a few grams of DHA per day. In general, it takes 1 to 4 months before the effects of omega-3 fatty acids are noticeable. The capsule may be opened if experiencing difficulties with swallowing.

 

 

 

WARNING
High doses of fish oil (more than 5 gram EPA + DHA per day) increase the chance of getting diarrhoea. Caution is advised when using anticoagulants (blood thinners). There is an increased risk of internal haemorrhaging when using doses of more than 3 grams of EPA + DHA per day (10 capsules DHA Forte or more). Also other interactions with regular medication and other natural health products may occur. Please consult an expert about this.

 

SYNERGISM
Simultaneous use of Vitamin E-400 complex (at least 400 IE per day) is highly recommended due to the high degree of unsaturation of omega-3 fatty acids. The naturally mixed tocopherols in Bonusan omega-3 products are sufficient to prevent oxidation of the product. However, fatty acid oxidation can also occur in the body and hence protection through the simultaneous use of extra vitamin E is highly recommended.
Besides taking this product it is also recommended to follow a healthy diet, as well as taking a basic supplementation of Multi Vital Forte, Vitamin C-1000 Ascorbate Complex and Omega-3 liquid (or Omega-3 capsules).
