Calories from the foods we eat are stored in the body as fats called “triglycerides.” The body draws on these fats for energy but when the triglyceride levels get too high, primarily due to bad diets and lack of physical activity, people have an elevated risk for obesity and cardiovascular issues. The strategy for lowering serum triglyceride levels should include regular exercise, smaller food portions and eating a diet that includes healthy fats like omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids while minimizing the consumption of sugar and saturated fats from animal products, and avoiding trans fats and partially hydrogenated oils altogether. As much as possible, replace the so-called “bad fats” with “good fats” like omega-3s. Flora™ DHA Vegetarian Algae is a source of the omega-3 fatty acid, docosahexaenoic acid. DHA is known to promote healthy blood triglyceride levels. Made from cultivated algae, Flora’s DHA Vegetarian Algae capsules provide all the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids, without fish taste and without the problems associated with overfishing or ocean-borne contaminants such as mercury, PCBs and dioxins. In addition to reducing serum triglycerides, Flora’s DHA Vegetarian Algae supports healthy neural and vision development of an infant when consumed by the mother during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Dedicated to quality, Flora™ ensures that every lot of raw material is tested for its potency, rancidity, and impurities such as heavy metals and microbiological integrity.
