Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is essential for the growth and functional development of the brain in infants. DHA is also required for maintenance of normal brain function in adults. The inclusion of plentiful DHA in the diet improves learning ability, whereas deficiencies of DHA are associated with deficits in learning. DHA is taken up by the brain in preference to other fatty acids. The turnover of DHA in the brain is very fast, more so than is generally realized. The visual acuity of healthy, full-term, formula-fed infants is increased when their formula includes DHA. During the last 50 years, many infants have been fed formula diets lacking DHA and other omega-3 fatty acids. DHA deficiencies are associated with foetal alcohol syndrome, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, cystic fibrosis, phenylketonuria, unipolar depression, aggressive hostility, and adrenoleukodystrophy. Decreases in DHA in the brain are associated with cognitive decline during aging and with onset of sporadic Alzheimer disease. The leading cause of death in western nations is cardiovascular disease. Epidemiological studies have shown a strong correlation between fish consumption and reduction in sudden death from myocardial infarction.
DHA omega-3 is naturally found throughout the body and is most abundant in the brain, eyes and heart. Just as calcium is essential for building strong bones, DHA ensures that the cells in the brain, retina, heart and other parts of the nervous system develop and function properly through all stages of life.
DHA for Brain Health
Infant mental development
Brain and nervous system development and function
Supporting the mental function of children and adults throughout life
Possible role for DHA in some behavioral and mood disorders affecting both children and adults
DHA for Eye Health
DHA is a major structural fat in the retina of the eye and it plays an important role in both infant visual development and visual function throughout life.
Studies have shown that DHA plays a role in:
Infant visual function and visual development
DHA may play a role in adult eye health
DHA for Heart Health
DHA is a key component of the heart, especially in the conducting tissue, and is important for heart health throughout life.*
Studies have shown that DHA plays a role in:
Maintaining normal triglyceride levels, heart rate and blood pressure In addition, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has reviewed the available data regarding the relationship between DHA and EPA and cardiovascular disease and has authorized the use of the following claim:
The three primary omega 3s are alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). In the marine-based omega 3s (DHA and EPA), algae is the first source of omega 3, which moves up the marine food chain through bioaccumulation, giving large, fatty, cold water, marine fish the highest concentrations. ALA omega-3 is the land based omega 3 and can be found in nuts, seeds and many vegetables, with notably high concentrations in chia, flax, walnuts and avocados. Unfortunately, while ALA could be potentially an adequate omega 3 source if on an extremely low omega 6 content diet, it may not be a viable source for most of us. In the human body, ALA must be converted to EPA and then to DHA in order to produce the bioactive products but the conversion can be anywhere between 0.2-20%.

The secret of green tea lies in the fact it is rich in catechin polyphenols, particularly epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). EGCG is a powerful anti-oxidant: besides inhibiting the growth of cancer cells, it kills cancer cells without harming healthy tissue. It has also been effective in lowering LDL cholesterol levels, and inhibiting the abnormal formation of blood clots. The latter takes on added importance when you consider that thrombosis (the formation of abnormal blood clots) is the leading cause of heart attacks and strokess
Botanical Name: Camellia sinensis
Common Name: Green Tea
Standardized For: Upto 50% Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG) by HPLC, Upto 95% total Polyphenols
Description: Light To Dark Grey Powder
Plant part used: Leaves
Applications: Weight loss, Anti-Oxidant
Benefit of Green Tea Extract
- EGCG inhibits viral attachment-the initial step in the HCV infection process
- Green tea has even more antioxidant properties than these powerful vitamins
- It helps reduce body weight by increasing energy usage and fat oxidation
- Green tea helps to reduce total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol levels
- Green tea is known traditionally use to control blood sugar. By doing so it helps to reduce the risk of having type 2 diabetes
Shilajeet is truly amazing material. Emerging from the sides of giant cliffs of the Himalayas as a black tar, Shilajit’s incredible properties are derived from the plants that create the resins that push through the rocks and the minerals that are absorbed as this material moves through. Shilajeet contains many minerals that are not found in any other organic sources while at the same time containing organic compounds and nutritional.
Latin Name: Asphaltum
English Name: Asphalt, Mineral Pitch
Common Name: Shilajeet
Benefit of Shilajeet Extract
Highly beneficial in conditions like respiratory disorders, cough, arthritis, joint pains, etc.
Reduces general weakness and enhances sexual performance.
Revitalizes body cells and muscles
Receive fulvic acid, which is key in nutrient absorption, as well as being a strong detoxifier.
Shilajit to mineralize your body faster. Fulvic Acid is fantastic, but the real “magic” of Shilajit is the organic and ionic dietary and trace minerals
