Hot on the heels of her helping to develop what’s probably the world’s healthiest dairy free, sugar free chocolate (with shelled hemp for added essential fats and amino acids) Harley Street Nutritionist Yvonne Bishop-Weston is now helping to launch another world exclusive, a Vegetarian and Vegan docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) product.
Following many years of research and development, scientists in Europe have succeeded in developing a state of the art natural extraction process to extract DHA and EPA from a secret strain of pure algae.
Yvonne says “ There are very real concerns about toxicity in fish oils and even the ultra conservative British Nutrition Foundation admit that the idea of obtaining enough DHA and EPA from threatened fish stocks is unsustainable.”
"The practice of feeding fish to cows to increase essential fats and DHA and EPA in their milk is even more ludicrous"
“Studies show that, probably due to modern diets and lifestyles, many people’s body’s conversion of ALA to EPA and DHA is very hit and miss especially for DHA.”
Algal DHA has been shown to match fish’s ability to increase DHA in the body , meanwhile fish based DHA and EPA has been shown to out perform ALA rich foods such as flax.
Although nutritionists struggle to agree the exact ratios of essential fats most of them agree that the levels of DHA / EPA should be balanced.
The discovery of a vegetarian EPA/ DHA product that offers a credible alternative is a huge leap forward in ethical health and nutrition.
Vegetarians, Vegans, and those with strong ethical, environmental and religious beliefs should be particularly delighted with this innovative product but it also offers beneficial long-term ramifications for the natural health industry at large.
