A vegan-friendly blend of DHA and vitamin E
• Provides 200 mg DHA from algal oil per daily dose
• Provides 40 IU of vitamin E per daily dose
• Supports neurological function
Neurogen DHA is an effective combination of the omega-3 fatty acid DHA and vitamin E that helps to support neurological health. As vegan and vegetarian diets tend to provide significantly less DHA, algae-derived oils provide a vegan-friendly omega-3 source with a low impact on the ocean ecosystem.1,2 Recent research demonstrates that DHA deficiency decreases the level of brain-derived neurotropic factor in the hypothalamus and hippocampus, which is necessary for brain plasticity and function.3 Neuroprotectin D1, a metabolite of DHA, has also been shown to maintain neuronal cell function after exposure to oxidative stress.4
