Our Good Earth AvestaDHA® Muesli contains vegetarian source of omega-3-fatty acid DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid) derived from a microalgae.
A healthy and breakfast meal, it has the goodness and the choicest ingredients to provide you with sustained energy through the day. A multigrain cereal with oats, rice flakes, wheat flakes and corn flakes. Together they provide fiber and have immense health benefits for the heart, brain and good long lasting vision.
Our Muesli contains dry fruits too. Figs, almonds, dates and raisins, are all part of the mix. These dry fruits, apart from being a good source of nutrients, also enhanced the taste with their intense, distinctive flavor.
With natural sugars like honey and jaggery that give you the quick energy boost you require to start your day. Plus essential vitamins and minerals too.
About AvestaDHA® An Essential Nutrient for the Body
Long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFAs) such as Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are essential components of the cell membranes of various tissues and organelles such as retina and brain and cardiac tissues . DHA makes up 15 to 20% of the cerebral cortex and 30 to 60% of the retina, and is produced in the body in limited quantities, therefore it needs to be supplemented through a diet.
DHA is essential for the growth, functional development and healthy maintenance of brain function and is required throughout life from infancy through aging. Increased intake of DHA has been shown to be beneficial in inflammatory disorders, arteriosclerosis, myocardial infarction, thrombosis, and some cancers.
AvestaDHA® How It Works
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is a ω-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) with 22 carbons and 6 double bonds.
DHA is the longest and most unsaturated PUFA found commonly in biological systems in the membrane phospholipid components of the photoreceptor outer segments of the retina. The unique biophysical and biochemical properties of DHA, including its imparting ‘fluidity’ to retinal membranes, render it an essential structural component thereby mediating a faster response to stimulation. The optimal functioning of rhodopsin, the photo pigment necessary for initiating visual sensation, considered to be supported by the presence of DHA in the retinal membranes.
DHA is most highly concentrated in Photoreceptors, Brain, and Retinal Synapses and displays beneficial actions in Neuronal development, Cancer, and Inflammatory Diseases. DHA constitutes more than 30% of the total phospholipid composition of plasma membranes in the brain, and thus it is crucial for maintaining membrane integrity and, consequently, neuronal excitability and synaptic function.
Dietary DHA is indispensable for maintaining membrane ionic permeability and the function of transmembrane receptors that
support synaptic transmission and cognitive abilities.
