DHA Algae Oil is extracted from Schizochytrium. PROTOGA firstly manufactures Schizochytrium in fermentation cylinder to make natural DHA available for humans, protecting algae from heavy metals and bacterial contamination.
DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) is a kind of polyunsaturated fatty acid necessary for human body and animal. It belongs to Omega-3 fatty acid. Schizochytrium is a kind of Marine microalgae that can be cultured by heterotrophic fermentation. The oil content of PROTOGA Schizochytrium DHA powder can account for more than 40% of dry weight. The content of DHA is more than 50% in crude fat.
Nutritional supplement & Functional food
Numerous studies show that DHA plays an important role in cell membranes. In fact, DHA is a component of cell membranes and affects the function of their cellular receptors. In addition, DHA is a precursor of the hormones that regulate blood clotting, the contraction-relaxation of arteries and modulate inflammation. This omega-3 fatty acid is essential for maintaining the structure and function of the brain and eyes. DHA is necessary for fetal development and childhood. Optimal levels of DHA are therefore of paramount importance for mental and visual development and for maintaining these functions in adulthood.
As a highly bioactive substance and essential nutrient for biological growth, DHA content has become an important index to evaluate the nutritional value of feed.
-DHA can be added to poultry feed, which improves the hatching rate, survival rate and growth rate. DHA can be accumulated and stored in the form of phospholipid in egg yolk, raising the nutritional value of eggs. DHA in eggs is easy to be absorbed by human body in the form of phospholipid, and has a positive effect on human health.
-Adding Schizochytrium DHA into aquatic feed, the hatching rate, survival rate and growth rate of the seedlings were significantly improved in fish and shrimp.
-The feeding of Schizochytrium DHA can improve the nutrient digestion and absorption of pigs and enhance the level of lymphatic immunity. It can also improve the survival rate of piglets and DHA content in pork.
-In addition, adding polyunsaturated fatty acids such as DHA into pet feed can improve its palatability and pet's appetite, brightening pets’ fur.
