Why do I need extra antioxidants when taking DHA?

 


THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT: when taking DHA or any fish oils, you need extra antioxidant nutrients, such as Vitamin E. The reason is because DHA is a very unsaturated fatty acid, making it more susceptible to free radical damage. Studies have found that increasing fish oil intake without extra antioxidants leads increased free radical activity as measured in the blood. Hence, experts suggest that for every extra gram of unsaturated fatty acids consumed, at least 10 IU of Vitamin E needs to be simultaneously taken. For instance, if you take 2 g of DHA, you would need to also take at least 20 IU of Vitamin E at the same time. Of course, many people already supplement with much more Vitamin E than that, so as long as you are also taking extra Vitamin E, you should have enough to prevent extra free radical damage.
