Some key herbs, extracts and supplements to promote natural health and wellness DHA omega 3
DHA is an omega-3 essential fatty acid that is a major building block of the brain.
Omega 3 fatty acids are thought to play a key role in the development of brain and cognitive function, as well as production of EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), vital for brain health and for proper function of the nervous system.
Deficiency is linked to psychiatric disorders and brain-nervous system dysfunction.
Healthy oils like fish oil are also purported to protect against cancer.
According to published research, it’s unlikely the average Australian gets enough DHA through their diet alone (it’s found mainly in wild salmon, krill, deep sea calamari and in some nut/seed oils), so it is well advised to consider taking a supplement. Co-enzyme Q10 naturally occurs in our bodies. However, it declines from our 20s on. It is a vital part of the final steps of our energy production, as well as supporting cardiovascular health – and no other nutrient can replace it.
Note that Q10 may not absorb so well on its own. A trick that makes it more bio-available is to combine it with black pepper. Tests indicate that that Ubiquinol is believed to absorb substantially better than Ubidecarenone; so, even though it costs more, it might be more cost-effective. Absolutely brilliant for anti-viral, antibacterial, anti-parasitical, detoxifying, immune-boosting and cardiovascular benefits – simply a must-have.
