Max DHA Description Max DHA is four times richer in DHA and contains 80% Omega-3 fatty acids in their natural glyceride form. The glyceride form of fish oil is better absorbed than free fatty acid by 50% and ethyl ester by 100%.
Jarrow Formulas' Max DHA is purified and concentrated by molecular distillation. Max DHA is concentrated by increasing DHA four-fold to 50% while maintaining EPA at only 20%. This ratio of DHA/EPA reflects the omega-3 fatty acid profile in the brain, nervous system and retina of humans. Molecular distillation is the secret to the high DHA and the purity of the product. This high DHA to EPA formulation is especially for pregnant or lactating women and seniors.
Max DHA contains highly concentrated omega-3 fatty acids from ultra purified, pharmaceutical grade fish oil concentrated by molecular distillation.
Max DHA is mixed glycerides, which are better digested than free fatty acid and ethyl ester fish oils.
Max DHA contains NO methyl or ethyl esters.
The predominant fatty acid in the brain, nervous system and retina of humans is DHA, an Omega-3 fatty acid. DHA is necessary for fetus and infantile neurological development during pregnancy and lactation. Also DHA helps support neurological function in seniors.

Max DHA Questions & Answers
What is DHA and why is it important? DHA is short for docosahexaenoic acid. DHA is a fatty acid ?in specific terms, an omega-3 long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid. It is the primary building block of the brain and eye. The brain is 60 percent fat, and DHA is a major structural fatty acid in both the brain and the retina. It is essential for optimal brain and eye function.
Who needs DHA? Everyone needs DHA. Cells in the brain, retina, heart and other parts of the nervous system have connecting arms that transport electrical currents sending messages throughout the body. DHA ensures the optimal composition of these cells for the most effective transmission of these signals. Fortunately, most people have some in their diet, but the average American's diet is low in DHA. Low levels of DHA have been correlated with memory loss, mood swings and other mental and visual conditions. Research is underway to further determine the connection.
How much DHA do I need? This depends on your diet. Our bodies make a small amount of DHA naturally, but we get most of our DHA through our diets. DHA is found in foods such as eggs, fish and animal organ meats. However, in avoiding "bad" saturated fats, we have missed out on "good" fats like DHA. Today, the average American's daily intake of DHA is estimated to be significantly lower than it was about 50 years ago. Similarly, the level of DHA in the breast milk of American woman is significantly below what it was 50 years ago, and is also one of the lowest in the world. An additional 200 milligrams of DHA per day helps return the breast milk of the average American mother to near historical levels.
How do I know if I'm getting enough DHA in my diet? DHA is detectable in your blood and can be measured, but a routine blood test is not yet available. Your DHA level, however, can be estimated by a physician or nutritionist based on your diet. If you eat at least one serving of fatty fish daily, for example, you are probably getting enough DHA in your diet.
