    Omega-3 fatty acids — especially DHA — are essential to our brains in many ways.

    So, it's wise to ensure healthy levels of omega-3 DHA, from the womb through old age.

    Our supplement provides 1,040mg of omega-3 DHA per two-softgel serving, which is twice the DHA per serving found in most omega-3 supplements.

    It comes from sustainably harvested anchovies and mackerel, and occurs in the well-absorbed triglyceride form found in seafood.

    Better yet, each two-capsule serving provides 2,000 IU of vitamin D3 ... another nutrient essential to brain health.

    DHA: Critical to brain health and resiliency
    Omega-3 DHA is the most abundant fatty acid in the human brain, by far.

    That’s because DHA is essential to fundamental brain functions and to enabling and promoting connections among brain cells. In addition, the body uses DHA to resolve inflammation, which underlies major health conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.

    The fundamental importance of DHA to the brain may explain why low blood levels are linked to higher risk for depression, anxiety, anger, and dementia, as well as diverse mental disorders.

    And preliminary lab and clinical evidence suggests that ample intake of DHA renders the brain more resilient in response to physical trauma.

    Vitamin D: An overlooked brain ally
    Research into the role of vitamin D in brain health is growing rapidly.

    Preliminary findings suggest that vitamin D is essential to brain development, and to brain health throughout life.

    Low vitamin D levels have been linked to higher risks for various brain disorders, including Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. See "Recommended intakes of vitamin D", below.

    Certifed for Sport by NSF
    As well as enhancing general health, omega-3s and vitamin D support the extreme physical and mental demands placed on serious amateur and professional athletes.

    Leading sports leagues and associations, including these, have authorized their athletes to use NSF Certified for Sport™ supplements:

    • Major League Baseball
    • MLB Players' Association
    • National Football League
    • NFL Players' Association
    • The PGA and LPGA
    • Canadian Center for Ethics in Sports

    So that they can benefit from both, worry-free, we sought the prized Certified for Sport™ seal of approval from NSF, which assures athletes that our supplement is free of all substances banned by sports federations worldwide.

    All Vital Choice Salmon Oil and Vitamin D supplements are made from the same pure, natural ingredients, in the same way ... but only our Salmon Oil + Vitamin D3 supplement is Certified for Sport™ by NSF.

    The NSF Certified for Sport™ program enforces four key provisions and provides continual monitoring to ensure compliance with substance prohibitive lists promulgated by WADA, NSF Annex A, NFL, MLB, and NCAA:

    • Banned substance screening for products intended for professional and elite athletes.
    • Good Manufacturing Practices audits of the production facility.
    • Toxicological reviews of the product's formulation and substantiation of any product claims.
    • Annual label claim tests to ensure the product is meeting its declared nutritional values and is free from microbial and heavy metal contamination.

    We are proud to partner with NSF to bring high-quality, all natural supplements to athletes serious about their sport and their health.

    These unique attributes make High-DhA Brain Care a rare, powerfully health-promoting omega-3 supplement. NSF International certifies that our Sockeye Salmon Oil provides the omega-3 levels stated on the label.

    Omega-3 health benefits
    The U.S. FDA has approved two qualified health claims regarding omega-3 EPA and DHA:

    • Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.
    • Consuming EPA and DHA combined may reduce blood pressure and reduce the risk of hypertension, a risk factor for CHD (coronary heart disease).  However, FDA has concluded that the evidence is inconsistent and inconclusive.

    The long-chain omega-3s (EPA and DHA) found only in seafood (especially fatty fish) – and in supplemental fish and krill oils – are essential to human life and support optimal health in key organs, systems, and life stages*:

    • Aging
    • Vision
    • Metabolism
    • Inflammation
    • Cardiovascular
    • Fetal development
    • Skin, hair, and nails
    • Joints and movement
    • Cognition (thinking), attention, mood, and memory

    Recommended intakes of vitamin D 
    The U.S. Recommended Daily Allowances for vitamin D are 400 IU from birth to 12 months, 600 IU for ages 1-70 years (and for pregnant and breastfeeding women) and 800 IU for age 71-plus.

    However, leading vitamin D researchers worldwide recommend consuming 1000 to 2000 IU per day, to ensure adequate blood levels*.

    The official U.S. upper-intake limits are 1,000/day to 1,500 IU/day for infants under one year, 2,500 to 3,000 IU/day for children 1-8 years, and 4,000 IU/day for everyone aged 9 years or older, including pregnant or lactating women.

    "Rancid" Bev on 09/11/2020 14:38 Review: Ordered 6 bottles which is an 18 month supply. The capsules expire in 14 months. I have opened two bottles of the DHA capsules and both had a strong rancid smell. This is the first time I have not been 100% satisfied with the supplements I have ordered from VitalChocie and I have been purchasing fish and supplements for over 10 years. - Thank you for reaching out to us. We are sorry to hear your disappointment in this product. Our Customer Care Team will reach out to you today regarding this order. Thank you!

    "DHA + D" Mary K on 03/29/2021 08:41 Review: Best DHA plus vitamin D I’ve found. I’ve compared many labels of different brands and felt this was the best purest option.

    "Lost in shipping" Lisa B on 02/26/2021 10:49 Review: Have not received this yet. FedEx has been reporting that this package in transit between Hutchins, Tx and Lindale, Tx for the last 5 days. It is a 2 1/2 to 3 hour trip. Last time I ordered this, same thing happened and it eventually showed up. This time it hasn't yet. VC, you need to put it in a bigger box so it isn't so easy to misplace. I am not happy about this happening over and over. - We are sorry to hear the carrier has yet to deliver this package. We have seen many delays due to weather recently. Our Customer Service Team will reach out to you today to get this taken care of. Thank you!
