DHA 500 from Calamari is excellent for brain health as brain is highly enriched in DHA. Offered to support immunity and improved heart health, these capsules are produced by sustainably harvested squid and double molecularly distillation. DHA 500 is effective in promoting cell and tissue structure by acting as building blocks for the same. It is a vitamin-like nutrient and is vital for health of blood vessels.


Features at a Glance:

  • Supports memory and learning problems caused due to ageing 
  • Improves immunity
  • Effectively improves functioning of cells, tissues and organs
  • Promotes cardiovascular and brain health at all stages of life
  • Essential for early development of brain and eye 
  • Servings Per Container: 60 servings



  • Universal enhancer of cell, tissue and organ functions
  • Supports memory and learning against age related decline
  • Promotes cardiovascular and overall health at all life stages
  • Essential for early brain and eye development


The importance of DHA:

DHA is the most clinically proven of all the omega 3 fatty acids. Without exception, our cell membranes contain 5-10 times more DHA than EPA. EPA co-exists with DHA in fish oils and is a simpler fatty acid than DHA and far less abundant in cell membranes. But EPA can compete against DHA for space in the cell membrane, potentially ‘crowding out’ DHA and blocking its vital actions. DHA, in contrast, does not crowd out EPA and can be readily converted to EPA as needed. The evidence therefore favours supplementing with DHA in great excess over EPA, to ensure sufficient DHA will actually reach the membranes of cells in the brain, eyes, heart, blood vessels, liver, immune system and other organs.

Food sources of DHA are few. Early human culture thrived on DHA from fish, but modern fish typically may be contaminated with mercury and other toxins. Therefore supplementation with potent and pure DHA concentrates is the best means to receive sufficient DHA for optimal health.


Support for brain health:

The brain is highly enriched in DHA and contains only trace amounts of other omega-3 nutrients. DHA promotes regulation of genes that manage brain development, maturation and maintenance. Crowds out potentially harmful fatty acids from nerve cell membranes, potentiates brain growth factors, reduces amyloid production in the brain plus a plethora of many more beneficial actions.


Support for heart and circulation:

As with the brain, DHA’s benefits predominate over EPA in the heart and circulation. Its benefits encompass heart rate control, blood pressure, arterial microcirculatory tone.



Adult Use: For maintenance take 1 softgel daily after a meal. For additional memory and learning support take 2 softgels daily. For heart and other cardiovascular protection take 3 softgels daily.

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.
