Algal supplementation has been shown to significantly raise the levels of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), according to a systematic review of literature published in the Journal of Nutrition & Intermediary Metabolism. In the study, author J.C. Craddock of the University of Wollongong in Australia looked at the relationship between supplementation with algal forms of DHA and its effects on vegetarians and vegans.
Based on the results, supplementing with algal DHA improves DHA levels in vegan and vegetarian populations.
