    What is Solmega® DHA

    Solmega® DHA is a solvent-free extract of Schizochytrium sp., a marine microalga that naturally accumulates high levels of the long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acid DHA. DHA is essential for the growth, development, and optimal functioning of the brain and the eye1. DHA derived from Schizochytrium sp. is an accepted ingredient for use in infant formulas, dietary supplements, and a variety of foods and beverages2.

    How is Solmega® Made
    Solmega® DHA is produced through a tightly-controlled process using a proprietary, natural, non-genetically modified strain of Schizochytrium sp. Solmega® DHA meets the quality standards for DHA oil used in food and dietary supplement applications. No organic solvent, GMO or animal derived material is used in the production of Solmega® DHA.  Because Solmega® does not come from fish, there is no risk of ocean-borne contaminants and it is free of any pesticide residue.
