DR DHA (Dr Doughman, PhD lipidologist) is committed to your patients clinical solutions.
Thank you for contacting me.
I’ll be working with you on 4 deliverables over the next weeks or months to support our patent pending product and use programs.
1) Certifying Omega-3 (DHA/EPA) Sufficiency and EFA panel by blood test. I can help you get this going.
2) Giving a supply agreement minimum of 80 bottles per month for sales to at least get you to $20k/year profits with full support.
3) Giving a short FAQ list that will help answer the questions you and your clients will have, ppt, paters, podcast, websupport.
4) Minimum partnering efforts to develop your services in the athletics space to win with Dr. Alex the Iron-Doc.
You are asking good questions. These have been answered in my review, i.e. 15% retroconversion DHA to EPA. DHA is the only omega-3 you need as all other omega-3s are formed as needed by the body which knows what to do, even when getting slammed with EPA, which it must convert to DHA to remove from plasma and for accretive effects in tissues. For example even if taking only EPA, the body regulates the process and stores the omega-3 mainly in the form of DHA. Preformed DHA is a superior dosing strategy. Did you know 80%-90% of all omega-3s in the body is a DHA? DHA is the functional omega-3, EPA is the signaling omega-3, ALA is just good.
From our paper in submission: The human context for omega-3 oil formulations should consider human metabolism and comparisons to human tissue and body content (see Figure 1 above).
Figure 1: Percent fraction of EPA and DHA. Fish oil versus microalgae oil are compared to the body (5% EPA/90% DHA) and brain (3% EPA/97% DHA) as tissue fractions of EPA and DHA. Approximate similarities of microalgae oil to tissue levels are evident.
Clinical studies are now concluding significant benefits associated with DHA-rich microalgae oils versus DHA-poor fish oils (Sanders et al., 2006; Wijendran and Hayes, 2004; Geppert et al., 2006; Lloyd-Still et al., 2006; Wu et al., 2006; Stark et al., 2004; Erkkila et al., 2006).

Subject: DHA vs EPA
Have you ever run EFA assessments on people using just DHA?
EFA testing is one of our parameters on athletes and we frequently
see abysmal Omega 3 and Omega 6:3 ratios.
It would be interesting to see if DHA is adequately converted to EPA and how
it affected these levels?
I would appreciate the chance to chat with you about this. We are looking
for an EFA product to recommend /resell to our clients and I would
really love to have a algae based product to offer as long as I felt
comfortable leaving out [most] of the EPA.
When would be a good time to contact you.
