Nourishing your brain and vision
Fish oil in softgel capsules with over 50% DHA and natural vitamin E
MARNYS® DHA Complex is a food supplement in the form of softgels containing Fish oil with 50% DHA content (250mg) that maintains normal mental and visual function. It is also enriched with natural vitamin E. DHA Complex additionally contains 12% of Omega-3 EPA (60mg).
DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is an essential fatty acid that cannot be produced by the body and must be obtained from the diet. It is part of the phospholipids in the body's cell membranes, clearly influencing their structure and functionality. DHA is naturally found in high concentrations in nerve and retinal tissues.
MARNYS® DHA Complex and its ingredients provide the following properties (EFSA):
- DHA contributes to normal maintenance of brain function.
- DHA contributes to normal maintenance of vision.
- Maternal intake of Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) contributes to normal brain development in the foetus and nursing children.
- DHA and EPA contribute to normal heart function.
- Vitamin E contributes to cellular protection from oxidative damage.
MARNYS® DHA Complex is an excellent supplement for those adults who want to maintain a normal neural and visual function, for pregnant women, since it enables a good development of the foetus' nervous system, and for older adults to keep their brain function normal.
MARNYS® DHA Complex naturally guarantees that the oil properties are free from: contaminants, heavy metals, dioxins and furans.

Why are Omegas important for foetal and child development?
According to nutritionist Dr. Arianna Carughi (2010) from Stanford University: “Long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids are longer versions of the essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). There are a total of eight omega-3 fatty acids involved in human nutrition. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are the main omega-3 fatty acids in the diet and in tissues. The synthesis of Omega-3 in the human body is slow. In the fetus and the newborn, synthesis is insufficient and so they dependend practically entirely on the mother’s supply. Maternal Omega-3 status is also critical during pregnancy and lactation because these nutrients are key for the brain and the nervous system. Omega-3s (especially DHA) are particularly concentrated in retinal and neuronal cell membranes. It is crucial for neurotransmission and neurogenesis.
