Product Information

Unived OVEGHA DHA is inspired by the lifelong, encompassing nutritional value of DHA through life. Right from the time, a baby takes form in the mother’s womb to the time an individual grapples with travails of old age, DHA supports the development and functionality of the brain and eyes and protects the heart. DHA is a highly recommended nutrient by health authorities the world over. A wealth of research conducted over the last thirty years points to the importance of vegan Omega-3 DHA for healthy heart, eye, and brain function.

Unived OVEGHA offers a pure, unadulterated, non-GMO, natural fermented, vegan omega-3 DHA that is free of ocean-borne contaminants and 100% natural. Two capsules of OVEGHA deliver 500mg of pure Omega-3 DHA – an adequate dose for adults.

                

Unived OVEGHA DHA is a rich and sustainable source of DHA. It is richer because it is sourced from the micro-algae, the world’s richest source of DHA, unlike the commonly available fish oil DHA. Thus, OVEGHA DHA offers the primary, vegan, and more sustainable DHA sourced from the micro-algae which doesn’t have an unpleasant taste or smell, fishy burps, toxins (lead, PCBs, mercury, arsenic, dioxin), and other impurities that fish oil may contain.

Key Benefits

  • DHA supports healthy development and function of the brain, eyes and heart in children and adults.
  • DHA supports a healthy pregnancy and aids in the development of the child.
  • DHA may improve memory and reaction time in young adults.
  • DHA supports heart health and can reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
  • DHA has positive effects on mental health and overall well-being.

Ingredient Information

  • Algal Oil (50% DHA) of which Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) - 1000mg
Omega-3 is a healthy fatty acid. The three major omega-3 fatty acids are Alpha-Linoleic Acid (ALA), Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA), and Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA). DHA is the most important Omega-3 fatty acid. DHA constitutes up to 97% of the Omega-3 fatty acids in the brain and up to 93% of the omega-3 fatty acids in the retina. Maintaining healthy omega-3 DHA levels is vital for the normal development and functionality of the brain, eyes, and heart. Omega-3 DHA has nutritional relevance for all age groups.

Pregnant, nursing women, and growing children

Over 70% of a child’s brain develops in the mother’s womb. During pregnancy, infants get their DHA from their mother’s dietary intake.DHA is especially important for vision and brain development. Therefore, it is important for pregnant women to consume DHA, especially in the third trimester when there is significant brain development. Studies have shown improved intelligence scores of breastfed children whose mothers took DHA supplements during pregnancy and nursing. Most of the brain growth is completed by 5-6 years of age. The human brain increases approximately 3.5 times in this period. During this time DHA supplementation is vital in ensuring the normal development of the brain and eyes.

Young adults and working professionals

Supplementation of DHA may improve memory and reaction times for healthy young people, says a new study that could ‘translate into far-reaching benefits [8].

Seniors

Due to its overall impact on cognitive health, omega-3 DHA helps compensate for the decline in cognitive health. It is effective against disorders such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinsons’, Dementia and may improve the quality of life and memory in those affected by dementia [9].

Unived OVEGHA DHA is from Algal Oil Schizochytrium sp. (50% DHA) 1000mg, of which Docohexaenoic acid (DHA) 500mg.

Mode of Action

  • It promotes maternal DHA status. DHA plays an important role in neuronal multiplication, differentiation and migration, and formation of neural synapsis and helps in neuroprotection resulting in neurological and brain development of the fetus [1]. It also promotes fetal eye development [2].
  • Reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease [4]. Studies indicate higher levels of DHA reduced risks for the progression of coronary atherosclerosis and lowered the risk of sudden cardiac death [3].
  • Lowers triglycerides and increases HDL and reduces blood pressure at higher doses [10], [7].
  • Reduces inflammation in the brain. May reduce anxiety and panic attacks [6].

What are essential fatty acids?

A low fat or fat free diet isn't essentially a good diet. Your body needs fats for smooth functioning just as it needs carbohydrates and proteins for energy and strength. What matters is the type of fat we allow into the system. The bad – the trans and saturated fats – they increase your body's susceptibility to disease. The good fats include monounsaturated and fats contribute several benefits for healthy dynamics of the body. The two main types of PUFA (polyunsaturated fatty acids) include Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. These essential fatty acids must be present in your body in the right ratio. They cannot be synthesized by the body hence they need to be acquired through your diet.

Is it true that OVEGHA is also beneficial for mental health?

Studies have found proximity between the intake of omega-3 and human behavior. Omega-3 DHA is known to impact cell signaling, membranes and neurotransmitters. In fact researchers and experts have drawn an association between brain inflammation and depression. Post-traumatic stress disorder and postpartum depression also lead to chronic inflammation. DHA addresses this inflammation and contributes to neural development and repair. Therefore DHA is an effective way to repair the brain damage caused due to chronic inflammation. Studies have also observed the effectiveness of DHA in addressing anger and hostility, mood disorders and aggression. .

Why do I need Omega-3 DHA?

Omega-3 DHA is the most important PUFA supporting the function and development of the brain and eyes. It is also plays a major protective role in cardiovascular health. Brain: DHA is of near absolute necessity for the development of the sensory, perceptual, cognitive and motor neural systems. It enables the optimum functioning of the nervous system by improving the messaging of signals between neurons in the brain. Heart: DHA has been credited with being a key component of the heart, especially in the conducting tissue. It helps maintain normal triglyceride levels, heart rate, and blood pressure. Eyes: DHA comprises 93% of omega-3 in the retina. It plays an important role in visual development and visual function throughout life. DHA also has positive effect on conditions such as hypertension, arthritis, atherosclerosis, depression, adult -onset diabetes mellitus, myocardial infarction, thrombosis and some cancers.

How is OVEGHA different from fish oil supplements?

OVEGHA contains algal oil derived from micro-algae which are the most primary and direct source of DHA. OVEGHA thus offers vegan omega-3 DHA derived from a more direct source which is fermented under controlled conditions. The oily fish get their DHA from the smaller fish and other marine creatures which feed on DHA. They do not synthesize their own omega-3 DHA but in fact get it from their food chain. Moreover the fish often contain sea borne contaminants which have to be purified in order to make them safe for consumption.

Does OVEGHA have side-effects?

OVEGHA has no known side-effects and is safe for consumption for everyone including children, adults, pregnant women and the aged alike.

Why is Algal oil a better source of DHA than Fish oil?

The fish are not the original source of omega-3 DHA, since they do not synthesize within their system. They get DHA from their food chain, when they consume the smaller fish and other sea creatures that feed on the DHA rich algae. By the time this DHA reaches you it has already climbed up two steps of the fish food chain, used by the fish until it is caught, remains inside the dead fish until it is cut open, processed for the removal of contaminants and followed by extraction. Another concern is that some people find it difficult to digest fish or fish oil. Also, fishy burps almost always accompany fish oil supplements. Furthermore, the hazardous contaminants such as arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury that reside within the fish make them risky for consumption. Algae make their own DHA and are in fact the primary source of DHA for the fish and the marine creatures. DHA derived from this source is more direct and pure. It is also a more sustainable source.

Why can't I get my omega-3 DHA from flaxseeds or walnuts?

It is true that flaxseed, hemp, walnuts, green vegetables, soy or chia seeds etc. are all incredibly nutritious and rich sources of omega-3 fatty acids. However the concern with these sources is that only contain ALA. This ALA is then required to be converted to EPA and DHA. This conversion however is inefficient and a very low percentage of ALA gets converted to DHA. In fact research indicates that the conversion rate is 1% in infants and in adults it is much lower.

Is it safe to take OVEGHA during pregnancy?

Omega-3 DHA is widely acknowledged as beneficial for pregnant women and their babies. As it is an important element in brain development. During pregnancy the babies get their DHA from the mother's intake. Hence it is important for women to consume DHA, especially in the third trimester when there is significant brain development of the fetus. DHA supplementation has also been credited with reducing the risk of preterm birth. may be useful in prolonging the duration of gestation in some higher-risk pregnancies. Yes it is quite beneficial to take OVEGHA vegan omega-3 DHA during pregnancy.

Is OVEGHA safe for children?

Yes, it is completely safe for children. In fact it is vital for the development of their brain and eyes. DHA is especially important during the first two years of childhood. You can opt for our OVEGHA DHA Kids, which is also made from algal oil a good source of DHA, the same that is used for infant formulas.

Is OVEGHA suitable for vegetarians and vegans?

Vegans and others who eat non vegetarian diet but do not consume fatty fish, have low DHA levels. Vegetarian omega-3 sources are flaxseed, hemp, chia, walnuts, and greens. But most of those sources give you ALA which has to undergo a complex process of conversion to DHA. Majority of vegetarian Indians who do not take DHA supplementation suffer from its deficiency That is why OVEGHA is an excellent vegan omega 3 DHA supplement for the vegans and vegetarians. It is a 100% natural and pure and vegetarian dose of DHA. OVEGHA is registered by the Vegan Society – UK, and is appropriate for Vegans.
