Normally DHA is found only in fish and fish oils, along with some eggs and other animal products, and we have been searching for a reliable vegan alternative. Typically, the most common vegetarian source of omega-3 fatty acids is flax seed oil or hemp products. These short-chain, seed-based, omega-3 fatty acids are the precursor to the long-chain omega-3 DHA. However, flax seed oil is an imperfect solution because it is converted into DHA at varying rates in different people. Therefore, some vegetarians, vegans, and/or raw-foodists do not produce enough long-chain omega-3 DHA to meet requirements. Eating some coconut oil with your flax oil will aid in increasing the conversion rate in the body.*
DHA is endorsed by Dr. Gabriel Cousens, who has written about DHA in his book Conscious Eating. The properties of DHA are also discussed in Udo Erasmus' book Fats That Heal, Fats That Kill.
