DHA is especially valuable and is a highly refined fish oil that has undergone an advanced extraction process that concentrates the DHA lipid fraction to levels higher than those found in EPA. This higher level is similar to the ratio that is found in various human tissues. Recent research has shown that DHA is an essential nutrient for optimum neurologic function (6)* and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) which is the most common childhood behavioral disorder. Investigators at. Purdue University reported that serum and red blood cell levels of DHA were significantly lower in boys with ADHD than those of normal boys, thus demonstrating that ADHD may be the result of EFA deficiencies (7).* Furthermore, a British study on adult dyslexics showed a marked improvement in symptoms when patients supplemented with DHA by showing positive results and improvement in retinal function and reading ability (8).* In schizophrenia research, information is accumulating that phospholipid metabolism in the brain may be interrupted and that red blood cell concentrations of DHA are significantly lower in patients with clinically diagnosed psychosis (9).*
For years DHA & EPA have been known to help reduce risk factors of cardiovascular ailments. Research has shown that people who supplement with DHA or eat a diet containing fish, exhibit a moderate decrease in serum triglyceride and LDL cholesterol levels (10)*, as well as platelet aggregation, both of which have many implications in human pathology including atherosclerotic plaque formation. Supplementing with DHA has shown to significantly decrease platelet stickiness thereby reducing dangerous artery blocking plaque development (11).* DHA has also been effective in decreasing irregular heart rate, also known as cardiac arrhythmias, which can cause potentially life threatening heart attacks. By increasing blood levels of
DHA, the frequency of cardiac arrest due to arrhythmias was reduced by 70% (12).*
Current medical research has shown that DHA supplementation can reduce the inflammatory effects of the small intestine as well as lesions in the colon (13).* Subsequent studies have demonstrated the same anti-inflammatory ability of DHA in many other health problems such as psoriasis, dermatitis, rheumatoid arthritis, and dysmenorrhea or menstrual pain (14-17).* Omega-3 fish oil supplementation has also recently been shown to be extremely beneficial in many lung disorders (18-20). *
