Super DHA Gems
Super DHA Gems is a fish oil with vitamin E that says it will help keep your heart, brain, eyes, and joints healthy. It’s made by Carlson Laboratories, a company which was created more than fifty years ago in Chicago. Sometime after 1965 they expanded into the city suburbs, and have been there ever since. They’re family-run and sell more than 250 supplements for a variety of dietary needs, including notable vitamins and fish oils. The company slogan is “Choose quality. Choose Carlson.”
Super DHA Gems contains the following ingredients: Vitamin E, Fish Body Oil Concentrate, DHA, EPA, Soft Gel Shell: Beef gelatin, glycerin, water, contains fish: anchovy, sardine, tuna.
Super DHA Gems contains 1000 mg of fish oil with 600 mg of Omega-3 fatty acids. 500 mg of this is DHA from anchovy, sardine, and tuna. Each serving – one soft gel capsule – also has about a third of your daily value for vitamin E.
Carlson correctly notes on their website that DHA plays an essential role in development during birth and infancy. Particularly the nervous system, brain, and eyes. DHA is important for children and their mothers, as DHA levels tend to drop significantly during pregnancy and while breastfeeding. It’s also important to have DHA throughout out life to maintain your health, as Omega-3s play important roles in your daily life. Between the ages of 5 and 55, though, you tend to want higher levels of EPA than DHA.
For most adults, EPA is often more important to have in good quantities, because DHA is slightly more effective for children and the elderly. EPA is beneficial for mood, inflammation, arthritis, heart health, and regulating LDL cholesterol. Between the ages of 5 and 65 more EPA can also assist with focus and concentration. If you’re in doubt about you what you need, a doctor will be able to fill you in and recommend a product that suits your unique individual needs.

This is a premium supplement with the type of high quality ingredients you’d want to see in fish oil capsules. The high amounts of Omega-3s will carry positive long-term results that benefit people of all ages and needs. Still, it does have a target audience, and if you’re not in that audience you may not get the best possible results. Super DHA Gems is mostly for the very young, the very old, and women who are pregnant or have recently given birth. DHA is the most important in these people because of its effects on health and development. The inclusion of EPA in each capsule is a bonus that opens more possibilities for everyone.
