Nature’s Way Neuromins DHA Ingredients
Nature’s Way Neuromins DHA contains the following ingredients: Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) (from Algal microalgae oil), Vegetarian softgel [modified starch, glycerin, carrageenan, Sorbitol, purified water, beta carotene (natural color) and caramel (natural color)], high oleic sunflower oil, sunflower lecithin, mixed natural tocopherols and ascorbyl palmitate, and natural flavor.
Nature’s Way Neuromins DHA features DHA sourced from microalgae oil. The Omega 3 fatty acid DHA can be obtained from food or supplementation. Main sources include fish sources (salmon, tuna, herring, anchovies etc) or vegetarian sources (flax seed, canola oil or walnuts). However, the vegetarian sources do not contain DHA as such, but another Omega-3 essential fatty acid called ALA which is converted in the body in DHA. This process takes time and resources. Microalgae oil on the other hand is one of the best plant sources of DHA (provided directly and not in the form of ALA). It provides 250% more DHA per unit than fish oil.
Vegetable sources of Omega-3 (especially DHA) are also highly recommended to pregnant women, since there are some concerns regarding toxicity and contamination of fish sources.
DHA is found in large quantities in the brain and the retina, and, hence it is believed that normal functioning of the brain highly and eyes depend on DHA. The exact mechanism is yet to be studied and understood.

Nature’s Way Neuromins DHA recommended use is 1 soft gel taken two times daily. Consumer reviews are not numerous, therefore it is hard to get a clear picture of whether the formula works. No side effects or precautions are mentioned for Neuromins DHA.
