With essential omega-3 fatty acid DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and alpha linoleic acid; without animal ingredients.
- Combination of active substances in capsule form as a nutritional supplement.
- Contains essential omega-3 fatty acid DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and alpha linoleic acid with which the organism should be supplemented, according to the scientific findings of the DR. BAUMANN research team. Contains no animal ingredients on ethical (factory farming) and health (residual medication and development of bacteria resistant to antibiotics) grounds.
- Important for skincare from within
Composition and properties
DHA (docosahexaenoic acid)
DHA is extracted from the algae Ulkenia sp., a marine micro-alga, and includes vitamin F. DHA is composed of alpha linoleic acid in many of the body’s metabolic processes. The metabolic process takes place very slowly. DHA plays an important function in the development of the nerve cell membranes and is highly concentrated in the brain. An English study shows that DHA is important for productivity. The DHA from algae oil can be converted in the body into EPA, which is important for cardiovascular functions.
Alpha linoleic acid
Alpha linoleic acid is contained in the form of linseed oil and also includes vitamin F. It is often lacking in our modern diet. Its effect is to repress the metabolic absorption of oils containing omega-6 (e.g. sunflower oil, safflower oil, soy bean oil), as omega-6 fatty acids as well as omega-3 fatty acids are processed by the same enzymes, and since there is so often excessive intake of oils containing omega-6, this has a suppressive effect on the metabolism of omega-3 fatty acids (alpha linoleic acid) into EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA.
Instructions for use
We recommend at least 1 to 3 capsules per day, depending on the disposition and constitution of the body. The capsules should be taken at meal times with enough fluids.
DR. BAUMANN dietary supplements cannot replace a healthy diet. Optimal requirements for a beautiful skin and healthy body can only be achieved through a combination of ‘inner nutrition’ – a healthy diet and sensible dietary supplements – and ‘outer nutrition’ from liposome products and other DR. BAUMANN skincare products.
