Novus DHA GOLD® Omega-3 DHA

DHA GOLD® is a high quality, vegetarian source of Omega-3 DHA. The product is Non-GMO, with a sustainable supply.

DHA GOLD is a dried, whole cell algae product made from the microorganism Schizochytrium that contains 18%-22% DHA by weight. Adding DHA GOLD to animal feed is a safe and effective route to nutritionally enhance DHA content of eggs and meat. DHA GOLD has a greater efficiency of DHA incorporation when compared to other sources, therefore making DHA GOLD a more economic source of DHA enrichment in food production.

Why DHA?

In the quest for healthy bodies and healthy minds, the word “fat” often gets a black eye from nutritionists, diet gurus and average Americans. But omega-3 fatty acids enjoy a just reputation as good fats—the kinds that our bodies need to maintain energy and stay healthy.

There are three main types of omega-3 fatty acids: ALA (alpha-linolenic acid), EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). All are important, and none can be efficiently manufactured in the human body. They must be consumed.

What makes DHA different from EPA and ALA, and particularly important to human health, is its role as a basic structural building block of brain, eye and heart tissue. Though the human body can use ALA to produce its own DHA, it’s an inefficient process that uses more nutrients than it produces. The best way to ensure that we have all the DHA for our brain, eye, and heart health is to eat foods containing plenty of fully formed DHA.
