The Benefits of Nutritional Lipids

This publication discusses the latest evidence on nutritional lipids in supporting human health across the life span. While substantiating the well-known benefits, it also explores the positive impact on lesser known areas of health.


ARA (arachidonic acid) is the primary omega-6 fatty acid in the brain, representing about 48 percent of the omega-6 fats found there. It is also naturally found in breast milk and is important for optimal growth and development of the infant brain. life’s™ARA is a sustainable, vegetarian source of ARA, produced in a controlled environment from start to finish.


life’sDHA® is a vegetarian source of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) omega-3 from algae that provides important brain and eye benefits throughout all stages of life. Most people incorrectly believe that fish produce their own DHA, when in fact it’s the algae in their food chain. life’sDHA® goes straight to the source, resulting in a sustainable, high quality product rich in DHA omega-3.


MEG-3® fish oil is the most trusted source of EPA and DHA omega-3 from fish oil. MEG-3® is concentrated for potency and sustainably sourced from clean, omega-3 rich ocean fish.
