The VegDHA+ formula is a vegetarian alternative for clinical dosing of DHA, EPA, and GLA. The unique combination of two vegetarian sources, algae and echium, provides clinical potencies of DHA, GLA, and the omega-3 stearidonic acid (SDA) which readily converts to EPA in the body.
Because the omega-3 fats in most plant sources are present as ALA they provide very little clinical effect due to their low conversion to the bioactive omega-3 EPA and DHA. Echium is unique due to its high percentage of omega-3 SDA. Research has demonstrated that SDA converts to EPA at a rate 10x greater than ALA. Echium is also a natural source of the beneficial omega-6 GLA. Echium, combined with DHA from an algal source, makes VegDHA+ the only vegetarian formula suitable for clinical applications.
