Source-Omega, LLC announces Optimized DHA3â„¢ ForeBRAIN(SM) as the second product in their line of Next Gen Plant Based Omega-3â„¢ for premium optimized vegetarian lipids.
Online PR News – 25-February-2011 – – Chapel Hill, NC, February 25, 2011 -- Source-Omega, LLC announces Optimized DHA3â„¢ ForeBRAIN(SM) as the second product in their line of Next Gen Plant Based Omega-3â„¢ for premium optimized vegetarian lipids. The product is planned for launch on Earth Day 2011.
Optimized DHA3â„¢ ForeBRAIN(SM) contains select algae oil that is rich in DHA n-3 (300 mg) and DPA n-6 (100 mg) plus EPA n-3 (10 mg). Pure Oneâ„¢ DHA plus DPA n-6 and EPA ( http://www.source-omega.com ) furthers the companyâ€™s proprietary 300 mg DHA + 10 mg EPA formulation using algae oil.
The product will be 30 capsules for a one month supply. One capsule per day of the Pure One product is suggested to support brain structure and function in children 4 and over and in adults. Greater levels of DHA plus EPA are required to lower triglycerides for heart health in adults.
"We seek to most completely educate the consumer about how the new Pure Oneâ„¢ omega-3 product supports brain structure and function. The ForeBRAIN product is consistent with our prior observation that Pure Oneâ„¢ algae oil fatty acids are balanced to match the bodyâ€™s needs. This means that the human brain make-up of omegas is more closely matched by the Pure Oneâ„¢ ForeBRAIN product ratios" said Scott Doughman, PhD, President and Chief Scientist at Source-Omega. ( http://www.source-omega.com )
Since before the company was formed, Doughman started looking at how the human brain and organs are made up in terms of omega fatty acids. He said he observed parallels between ratios and levels of omega fats in eggs, breast milk and one algae oil strain in terms of the oil fat balance and the human brain fat composition.
The DPA n-6 lipid in ForeBRAIN ( http://www.source-omega.com ) comes from the same Non-GMO algae strain as the first Pure One product and is safe for pregnant and nursing mothers. The company stated that it has always known the DPA n-6 potential. Source-Omega is the first to distinguish their new 35 percent DHA plus about 15 percent DPA n-6 through the Pure Oneâ„¢ brand.
DHA AND DPA n-6
The human forebrain contains some of the highest levels of DHA in the brain. More is being discovered about the levels of DPA n-6 in the brain, yet no dietary recommendations are currently available. Many experts recommend DHA intake of at least 300 mg per day, but with little discussion of DPA n-6, a non-inflammatory structural lipid normally found in the brain, in human breast milk and in eggs.
The Pure Oneâ„¢ vegetarian form of the "egg lipids" DHA, DPA and EPA together may provide greater brain support than DHA alone, although literature research on the topic is very early. 100 mg DPA n-6 per serving is considered safe and beneficial as a fatty acid that is also present in the general food supply and is safe at higher dosages. The oil is GRAS and infant formula grade, kosher and pure.
"Optimized DHA3â„¢ ForeBRAIN(SM) has emerged out of years of research. Our published review from 2007 discusses the range and ratio of DHA n-3 to DPA n-6 in human breast milk. Optimized DHA3â„¢ ForeBRAIN features the median ratio of 3:1 DHA/DPA found in human breast milk [REF1]," said Doughman.
