AFC Ultimate DHA 70 | Unlock Your Full Potential

Have you watched the show Limitless? If you haven't caught it yet, you really should. It's a thriller released in 2011 starring Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro about a guy {Cooper} who takes a nootropic {intelligence enhancer} drug, NZT-48, that allows the user to access 100% of their brain capacity instead of the "usual" 20%. It works, and the show goes on to show how it changes his life with his new acute mental abilities. Brilliant stuff.

NZT-48 doesn't exist in reality, of course, but that doesn't mean that we can't unlock the true potential of what our brain is capable of.  I'm sure most have heard of DocosaHexaenoic Acid {DHA}, which is found to be vital to healthy cognitive development and functioning in adults and kids.

Both growing and aging brains need DHA for optimal brain functioning but relying on direct food sources e.g. anchovies, salmon, trout for DHA is often insufficient. That's why DHA supplementation is important for kids and adults, and especially for mums during pregnancy since DHA is essential for proper brain growth and eye development in fetuses and young babies.

There are many formulas in the market and it's hard to choose the "right" one. Most fish oil supplements are sourced from the body of regular fishes with low DHA concentration. However, using advanced technology from Japan, AFC Ultimate DHA 70 is a 100% premium grade fish oil derived from the eye sockets of deep sea tuna and contains the most potent DHA. It also undergoes rigourous testings to prove that it'sfree from harmful metals and pollutants, and is easily absorbed into our bodies.

Lil Pumpkin has been taking AFC Ultimate DHA 70 for the past month and although there is no significant change in her learning abilities yet, I do feel that she is able to focus and concentrate better. Her memory's always been good {probably because I've taking DHA since my pregnancy days haha}, but nowadays I find that she can repeat dance moves and lyrics from music videos she's seen just once or twice before. Not bad!

The supplements come in softgels which she doesn't like to take because of its texture. I'm not that keen on her just popping the softgels by herself either in case she chokes so I usually just cut it in half and squeeze the oil into her food. She doesn't taste the difference at all ^^V

If you are looking for a DHA supplement to try for you or your kids, do give AFC Ultimate DHA 70 a go. Each bottle contains 60 softgels and recommended dose for kids is 1-2/day, so a bottle should last about 1-2 months. They are found exclusively at NTUC Unity stores.
