Do Vegans Need DHA Supplements?

DO VEGANS NEED DHA SUPPLEMENTS? Today we look at credible research around omega 3 fatty acids, and get down and dirty about the risks and benefits of DHA. Taking a supplement should never be done casually or on a “just in case” basis. Supplements are not without risks. How did DHA become an issue of concern to some vegans? Is there an unethical agenda behind the push to get vegans to supplement with DHA? Watch the video to find out the answer to this question. Hint: it’s yes! 🙂
