Algae Oil DHA
Algae Oil DHA
Nature’s superior source of DHA for peak Omega-3 levels. Water-extracted to produce the cleanest and most concentrated DHA. 1000-2000 mg of the Omega-3’s DHA and EPA are needed daily for optimal Omega-3 levels.
DHA is one of the essential Omega-3 fatty acids. Ascent Nutrition’s Algae Oil DHA uses a specific wild-strain of algae that is uniquely water extracted to naturally produce the cleanest, purest and most concentrated DHA in the world. Algae Oil DHA is known to build up DHA levels in the body which can produce 250% more Omega-3 than fish oil per unit.
- Contains 24 fatty acids to nourish the brain and body*

- Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease*
DHA is an essential omega-3 fatty acid and is also known asdocosahexaenoic acidand is a compound that us humans must continually consume, due to its fundamental and structural role in all neurons, the eyes, mitochondria, telomeres and sperm.
The DHA fatty acid is part of the neuron itself and and is responsible for 90% of the omega-3 fatty acids found in the brain and is 25% of the brain’s total poly-unsaturated fat content.
DHA is so fundamental in fact that the developing baby inside a mother’s womb utilizes DHA from the mother to help form the brain, the eyes, the nervous system and more.
The need for continual DHA consumption then continues on throughout the human lifespan.
It is because of DHA that we are able to even see, read and interpret the words on this page–as well as think, speak, memorize, recall and hear.
Additionally, some neuroscientists even view DHA as more important than DNA itself!
As it relates to brain health, memory, focus, clarity, neuroplasticity and neurogenesis, DHA can be viewed as one of the best nootropics (brain-enhancing nutrients) in existence. Literally.
While there are many different nutrients, products and smart drugs out there, it is important to closely examine the fundamental needs of the human brain to understand why DHA is one of the strongest and most effective brain-enhancing nutrients known.
DHA has been shown to up regulate the expression of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) as well as another growth factor called nerve growth factor (NGF). These are growth factors that help to maintain the connections between neurons and help in the creation of new neurons. Some refer to these proteins as “miracle grow” for the brain.
DHA also has been shown to help support the production of a compound called Synaptamide. Synaptamide (N-docosahexenoyethanolamine) is an anandamide-like compound that is synthesized from DHA in the brain and it helps to promote neurite growth, synaptogenesis and neurogenesis in developing neurons.
In other words, for Synaptamide to be produced at healthy levels, DHA needs to be present.
DHA also has been shown to modulate the expression of several different genes in the brain and nervous system, and in particular, the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN).
The SCN is commonly known as the “brain’s pacemaker” because of its ability to help regulate hormones in conjunction with the cycles of light and darkness and helps to set and balance our circadian rhythm.
DHA is also incorporated into the rods and cones in the retina of the eye and it is the photons from the sun that hit the retina and are converted to an electrical signal that the brain can then read.
DHA is vital to this process and as discussed above, is the reason we are even able to read, listen and contemplate these words here right now.
Amounts and The Pure, Original Source of DHA
1,000-2,000 mg of the omega-3’s DHA and EPA have been shown to be the amount needed per day to raise a person’s omega-3 index percentage. This omega-3 index has been correlated with many biomarkers of health, including healthy insulin sensitivity, healthy blood pressure, healthy cholesterol ratios, cellular lifespan and more.
Most people sit at about 4% total omega-3 membrane levels, but optimal levels are at 8-12%.
Unfortunately, the average American is only reaching a little over 2,400 mg of DHA per week.
Since an average serving of salmon (3 oz) will provide about 1240 mg of DHA, this means that over a course of a week, a person would need to consume about 5.6-11.2 servings of salmon per week to reach the 1,000-2,000 mg of DHA per day. (7,000-14,000 mg of DHA per week).
With these numbers in mind, Ascent Nutrition CEO Lance Schuttler created a regimen that can be utilized to help reach these levels, which is called The DHA Regimen.
In short, The DHA Regimen supports peak omega-3 levels, synaptamide production and neurogenesis at 1,000-2,000mg of algae DHA per day over a period of 3 months.
It is Ascent Nutrition’s Algae Oil DHA that supports the science behind The DHA Regimen.
Additionally, since most people aren’t consuming or don’t want to eat nearly 5-11 servings per week of salmon, supplementing with DHA is an easy and effective way to reach these levels throughout one’s week.
Since nature’s original source of DHA comes from algae, we can go direct to the source for our DHA.
Remember, it is the fish that eat the algae and incorporate the DHA fatty acids into their cellular membranes.
The pure, clean and authentic traits of products is what we at Ascent Nutrition offer and it is these same traits that are naturally present in our Algae Oil DHA.
Ascent Nutrition’s Algae Oil DHA uses a specific wild-type strain of algae that is uniquely water extracted and naturally produces a clean, pure and potently concentrated golden algae DHA oil.
It is also 3rd party tested and has shown that it not only meets, but far exceeds cleanliness and safety standards set for microbial analysis testing and the testing of heavy metals like arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury.
We proudly show these results above, whereas these results are not shown on any other algae oil or fish oil website.
Additionally, because of our sustainable and clean growing process, we can offer this at a price that beats all other algae oil products, with respect to amounts of DHA per dollar.
Our 2 oz bottle of golden DHA oil from algae contains a graduated glass tincture dropper that provides mL amounts that is easy to read and utilize. Each 2.0 mL serving of Algae Oil DHA provides 1,000 mg of DHA and 10 mg of EPA.

- JMJennifer M.Verified ReviewerI recommend this productRated 5 stars3 weeks agoA High Quality DHA Supplement
A big goal of mine this year has been brain health. While I’ve been searching I was reading about how algae is one of the best sources. Shortly after I can across Ascent Nutritions products and I’ve been really impressed. I’ve made great strides in my brain health this year and this product has definitely been part of the journey.
- JEJimenez E.Verified BuyerI recommend this productRated 3 stars3 months agoIt was great while it lasted.
I have been taking this DHA for quite some time now. The first two orders where great. The quality was obvious and with ever take of the DHA, from the initial taste, to the latter benefits, I was satisfied with my purchase. I am a man who values consistency and appreciate it when it is given. It was not difficult getting my peers and colleagues to join me in the journey of preserving our health. However, this past two orders (four if we are counting the ones made by my partners) I has notice a difference in the product, there seems to lack potency in the benefits, that is my main concern. But, the taste is even not as dense, even the color is not the same. It is not golden yellow. It looks like it lost some of its value. I can only imagine is because of the popularity is gaining. But now im honestly reluctant to try it again, and will be more reluctant to tell people how much I like the product. What a shame. I hope I am not going crazy and I hope I don’t offend nobody, I am just stating my opinionAAscentNutrition3 months agoHi Jimenez, First, we'd like to thank you for your purchases and for also recommending our [Algae Oil DHA](https://bit.ly/3cuSOuK) to people you know. It is appreciated! We also appreciate your comment and feedback to us. The good news is that you are correct in that this product is VERY popular for us and is spreading quickly. We want to reassure you that while we are growing fast, we will NEVER compromise on quality or production just to meet demand. There can be natural variation of color and taste in the different batches and with our testing, we ensure that every fatty acid that we say is in our product, is indeed in there at the quantities that we show on our COA (on the product page). In terms of the effects you've felt as compared to now, this is quite common actually. The reason is that you have been giving your body those necessary fatty acids and the initial effects can be profound! After loading the body with these fatty acid over time, the body's response to the same amounts can be different. Though it may be different, the physiological importance and function of these fatty acids remain the same and are necessary for us humans to continually consume. We believe that if you continue with our Algae Oil DHA, you'll continue to see and feel benefits. Thank you again Jimenez and have a great day! -Ascent Nutrition
