Solid research on DHA in a variety of areas including ADHD and cognitive development is the basis for the new o3mega+ think. With concentrated DHA in a softgel that is approximately - the size of the others in the o3mega line, o3mega+ think is a great option for children as well as for adults who find larger capsules difficult to swallow.
The research on DHA has grown rapidly within the areas of brain structure, intelligence and maintenance of cognitive function throughout life, however, DHA is perhaps best known for brain development and function, particularly in infancy and childhood. However, DHA is not the entire story. When it comes to brain function and cognition, attention and the prevention of hyperactivity, some small levels of EPA are required. Published studies on pure DHA have shown no effect over placebo in ADHD. In contrast, studies which used predominately DHA and some EPA had successful outcomes. This is why we left in 100mg of EPA per softgel of o3mega+ think and why it will be more effective for ADHD than pure DHA formulas.
What are EPA and DHA - These are two specific essential fatty acids found in fish oil. Both Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) have been well documented in regulating cellular functions and promoting good health. Diets deficient in EPA and DHA have been associated with a number of health problems, most notably cardiovascular disease.

Fish isn’t called “brain food” for no reason! Nervous system support; memory, concentration and focus; cognitive function: Omega-3 fatty acids aren’t just helpful for our body’s structure and function, they are daily essentials, for our and we rely on dietary sources to get enough. Adequate amounts aren’t always available through diet alone, which is why supplementing with an Omega-3 is the best insurance for our overall health.
Omega-3 fatty acids are integral to our health and well being - and are an important component of every cell in our body. Research has proven that Omega-3 from wild fish oils, like those in o3mega+ think provide the best source of EPA and DHA - and DHA is the key to a healthy brain and nervous system. That’s why we formulated o3mega+ think to contain a research-proven dosage of DHA concentrate derived from wild, purity tested, sustainable fish oils for healthier brain development and function. Health experts agree: DHA is essential, particularly for children, seniors and expecting mothers.
Genuine Health helped to pioneer the fish oil industry in Canada, bringing the o3mega line to market as some of the first fish oils to be formulated with specific concentrations of EPA and DHA. We recognized early on that fish oils and their key fatty acids were not one size fits all ingredients, so we worked to ensure consumers from all walks of life with particular health concerns had a product right for them. Our Omega-3 Superior Quality 5 Point Program certifies our commitment to you: superior Omega-3 fish oils that meet and exceed quality, freshness and purity standards, while offering the highest EPA and DHA potency on the market today.

o3mega+ think Ingredients
The main components of Omega-3s that provide the great benefits are EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). EPA and DHA are both polyunsaturated fatty acids that are considered to be long-chain omega-3s. The difference between EPA and DHA is both physical as well as functional.
EPA is an omega-3 fatty acid consisting of 20 carbon atoms, and is considered an effective treatment for inflammation as it has been shown to have a positive effect on the 3 series prostaglandins, which are anti-inflammatory, while conversely interfering with the production of pro-inflammatory compounds. Clinically this results in EPA being an effective treatment for mooddisorders, especially mild to moderate depression, and inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis.
DHA on the other hand is a long-chain omega-3 fatty acid consisting of 22 carbon atoms. DHA is considered to be a physiologically essential nutrient for normal brain functioning and neuronal tissue, that’s why we brought it to the forefront in the o3mega+ think formula. Densely concentrated in the brain as well as retinal tissue of the eye, DHA is implicated in cognitive performance, learning ability, memory, and maintaining visual acuity.
o3mega+ think features an EPA:DHA ratio of 1:2.5 - providing overall health and protection - promoting, eye, brain, joint, eye and skin health while specifically addressing brain function and development; providing support from infancy to adulthood, and during pregnancy!

o3mega+ think Research
We stand behind the research conducted on our o3mega line, and are proud to be part of studies conducted at respected institutes such as the University of Guelph, University of Montreal and the University of Toronto.
In fact, researchers from the University of Alberta, Department of Agricultural, Food, and Nutritional Science, evaluated the effects of o3mega+ think supplementation in children with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (39 children aged 5-13, 4-month study, dosage was based on body weight and compared to olive oil placebo). Medical Symptom Questionnaire (MSQ) and the ADHD Conner’s Rating Scale both showed a significant improvement in ADHD symptoms in the active o3mega+ think group. Improvements in symptoms were associated with elevations in blood DHA levels. The results were presented at the Annual Meeting of the Canadian Psychological Association in Montreal, June 2009.
