Omega-3 fatty acids, such as Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), are important for good health. The human body needs DHA for optimal brain and eye development and function. DHA has also been shown to support heart health from infancy through adulthood. To get sufficient DHA for good health, most people today need a dietary supplement. The most common source of concentrated DHA is fish oil, but there are vital quality differences. Bizen DHA is a superior product, in terms of both purity and concentration. Our manufacturing process is carried out to standards set to ensure production of the world’s purest DHA. We offer DHA contents ranging from 50 % to 97 %, making Bizen DHA oils ideal for use in a number of specific product formulations.
The average western diet contains far less DHA than health authorities recommend. In North America, current intake of Omega-3 fatty acids is generally only about 15% of the target intake (900 mg/day) officially recommended by the American Heart Association for those with coronary heart disease. In the case of healthy individuals, intake is only 20% of the 650 mg/day advised by experts. For women during pregnancy and lactation, the current intake of DHA is approximately 20% of the target (300 mg/day), while the average three-year-old child consumes only 19 mg/day. Bizen has the expertise to supply you with DHA of unique purity and concentration. Our DHA forms the ideal basis for developing new products to fill this enormous gap in the market.
