What is Doctor’s Best Calamari DHA 500 with Calamarine?

Doctor’s BestCalamari DHA 500 with Calamarine is essential for healthy brain, eye, and heart development. It supplies highly concentrated omega-3 DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), produced from sustainably harvested squid and distilled to ensure purity. This vitamin-like nutrient and its metabolic derivatives are vital to mental performance, heart and blood vessel health, vision, immunity, and many other functions. DHA’s fundamental importance for health is primarily as a building block for cell membrane systems. DHA is a primary structural component of the human brain and cerebral cortex.

How does it work?

DHA has been shown to support the brain in a number of ways. DHA helps regulate genes that manage brain development, maturation, and maintenance. It promotes nerve cell maturation and new nerve cell extensions. DHA improves synaptic membrane fluidity, often in combination with PS (phosphatidylserine), and increases brain production of the protective BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor). It also upregulates glutathione peroxidase, along with other protective antioxidant enzymes, and is a source for docosanoids, which promote healthy tissue maintenance.

Is the DHA triglyceride form or ethyl ester form?

It is ethyl ester form. The calamari DHA is transformed into ethyl ester form and during the molecular distillation process potential contaminants are removed from the fish oil.

What is molecular distillation?

Molecular distillation is a purification process used in manufacturing high quality fish oil supplements. This purification method involves concentrating the omega-3 fatty acids in the oil to remove common contaminants such as mercury and other harmful agents which may be present in the environment of the fish.

Calamari: Allergy Information
Calamari is a type of squid, also called a mollusk.  Although calamari has no shell it is related to shellfish such as crabs, shrimps, clams and mussels (crustaceans).  Allergy to mollusks such as calamari is less common than allergy to shellfish/crustaceans.  As with most food allergies, symptoms for calamari are usually mild but severe symptoms such as anaphylactic shock can also occur after consumption by persons sensitive to crustaceans. Thus, persons known to be allergic to shellfish/crustaceans may be allergic to calamari and should consult their physician before consuming supplements containing calamari.  Currently, mollusks such as calamari, are not listed on the FDA/FALCPA list of “major food allergens”.
