KD Pharma launches KD Smart DHA

This new KD-Pür product is the cornerstone of KD Pharma’s new high DHA line-up

KD Pharma proudly announces the launch of its specially formulated KD Smart omega-3 oil. It was developed to provide the same average ratio of omega-3 EPA and DHA found in mother’s milk.

'KD Smart is an important product for us,' says René Kamminga, VP of Nutrition for KD Pharma. 'DHA plays a critical role in eye and cognitive health starting right from early development and continuing on throughout life. This particular product is designed to ensure expecting or nursing mothers receive sufficient DHA for both themselves and their growing baby.'

DHA is found throughout the body, but most prevalently in the brain and eye retina. Intake of omega-3 EPA and DHA is important because the human body cannot manufacture them. It is needed throughout life to support not only the development, but also the maintenance, of the brain and eye health.

It is particularly critical for both baby and mother during pregnancy and lactation. In the prenatal stage, fatty acids, especially DHA, are in high demand, accumulating in the infant’s brain, the eye retina, and throughout the body as a cellular component.

Studies have shown this build-up is at its most rapid from gestation through to the age of 2. A developing baby’s sole source of DHA comes from its mother, so KD Pharma has specially formulated KD Smart in the 1:4 ratio of EPA:DHA found in mother’s milk. Now, Mum can be sure she is getting what she needs to 'pass it on' and help her little one start smart.

KD Pharma supplies KD-Pür omega-3 APIs and concentrates to both the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries worldwide. Since its beginning, nearly 25 years ago in Germany, KD Pharma has excelled in separation technology.

Today, KD Pharma employs the largest repertoire of state-of-the-art purification technologies, which includes its patented supercritical fluid (SCF) method of producing high concentrate omega-3 EPA and DHA. This and its large cGMP manufacturing capacity provide KD Pharma with the unique flexibility to tailor make omega-3 concentrations in a variety of finished forms that are unsurpassed in quality and purity.
