Potomac, MD (PRWEB) May 30, 2013
Healthy Directions, LLC, today announced the launch of Omega DHA Brain Defense™, an innovative omega-3 DHA supplement formulated by Stephen Sinatra, MD, that supports cognitive function and promotes overall brain health.
Omega DHA Brain Defense™ contains 900 mg of life’sDHA™, a pure DHA sourced from microalgae that has been clinically studied and shown to improve memory and learning in people ages 55+; Tocomin®, a unique full-spectrum tocotrienol and tocopherol complex that helps protect the brain against oxidative stress; and a proprietary form of folic acid that supports normal homocysteine levels.
“I have been recommending the omega-3 fatty acid DHA, full-spectrum vitamin E with tocotrienols, and folic acid for years because of their proven cardioprotective benefits,” says Dr. Stephen Sinatra, an integrative cardiologist and nutritionist. “But studies have found that when taken in certain dosages and forms these nutrients can be effective at preserving brain health as well.”
For example, research shows that higher blood levels of DHA are associated with better cognitive health and lower levels, with smaller brain volumes and cognitive impairment. Omega DHA Brain Defense™ not only provides the research dose, it offers life’sDHA™, one of the purest, richest sources—the same one fish consume to get their DHA.
“One of today’s most prevalent age-related health concerns is cognitive decline,” says Healthy Directions CEO Connie Hallquist, “so I am pleased that Healthy Directions and Dr. Sinatra are able to provide a first-of-its-kind nutritional supplement that safely and naturally helps people maintain their brain health and cognitive function over the long term.”
Omega DHA Brain Defense™ is available at drsinatra.com and healthydirections.com.
