DHA EgGs

Health Benefits

Many people love to eat eggs but do not eat frequently because of high fat and cholesterol concerns. Growing health awareness and consciousness for healthy nutrition have inspired us at Al Jazira Poultry Farm to produce “DHA Omega-3 Golden Eggs” which like regular eggs not only contain natural vitamins, minerals & proteins but are also rich in unsaturated fats like DHA, Omega-3, Vitamin-E (a natural anti-oxidant) and Organic Selenium known to be an essential micro nutrient.

What is DHA?

DHA – Decosahexaenoic Acid known as good fat is a long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid belonging to Omega-3 group. Our brain contains about 10% DHA. Our eyes, blood vessels and even uterus contain DHA.

Why DHA, Vitamin-E and Organic Selenium?

Omega-3 and DHA cannot be produced by our body. Our changing eating habits and nature of food has decreased our required intake of DHA. Many people do not consume enough cold-water fish and foods containing Omega-3 due to variety of reasons.

Researchers have shown that Eskimos and Japanese who consume plenty of seafood have lower incidences of cardiovascular diseases. In both the groups Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), & decosahexaenoic acid (DHA) content in blood are higher.

Why DHA, Vitamin-E and Organic Selenium?

Some of the health benefits of DHA are listed here-under: (As approved by the Ministry of Health, United Arab Emirates)

  • Supports healthy heart function & Blood vessel flexibility.

DHA Omega-3 Eggs are rich in Vitamin-E which is a natural anti-oxidant that helps to have healthy flexible blood vessels, shining hair and skin.

DHA Omega-3 Eggs also contain an essential micro-nutrient Selenium which is essential for immune system and fertility.

What are the sources of DHA?

Cold-water fish like mackerel, sardines, and herring are very rich sources of Omega-3 and DHA. Some of the plant sources like Canola, Soybeans, flax, walnut contain Omega-3 but not DHA.

Eggs from chicken fed on a DHA rich diet are natural and very convenient source of DHA.
