October 10, 2012 — Nordic Naturals, leading manufacturer of omega-3 supplements, introduces DHA Infant Vegetarian, made exclusively from microalgae, nature’s original source of marine omega-3s.
DHA Infant Vegetarian provides essential omega nutrition without the use of fish. Like all Nordic Naturals omega oils, it is third-party tested and surpasses strict international standards for purity and freshness.
Specially formulated for the specific needs of infants 6 months and older, DHA Infant Vegetarian is a safe, pure, and effective option for healthcare professionals to recommend to ensure that their youngest clients get the DHA they need for healthy development. Non-GMO and hexane free, it supports learning and language abilities, as well as healthy brain, eye, and nervous system function.
The product is packaged in a 1 oz. bottle and includes a measured dropper so parents can easily add it to baby’s formula or food. According to Dr. Keri Marshall, Nordic Naturals chief medical officer, “Dosage is based on the child’s weight. The convenient dropper makes it easy for parents to measure out exactly what baby needs.”
DHA Infant Vegetarian offers the same health benefits as Nordic Naturals DHA Infant, which is made from the company’s Gold Standard 100 percent Arctic Cod Liver Oil. “We recognize that some parents prefer a vegetarian option,” noted Dr. Marshall. “That’s why we developed a plant-based formulation of this popular product. Nordic Naturals is committed to correcting the global omega-3 deficiency and, through innovation, we will continue to develop products to meet the personalized nutritional needs of all of our customers.”
DHA Infant Vegetarian joins the growing line of Nordic Naturals vegetarian products, all of which are processed with minimal environmental impact. Independent labs also test every batch for heavy metals, dioxins, and PCBs to guarantee purity, freshness, and quality. Certificates of Analysis are available upon request.
