Avoid Carrageenan

Question: I have heard that DHA capsules derived from algae (such as Neuromins) contain the red seaweed extract carrageenan. Is it safe to use capsules with carrageenan in them?

Dr. Blaylock's Answer:

Carrageenan is a powerful pro-inflammatory substance and is known to induce colon cancer in animals. For this reason, it is best to avoid products that contain carrageenan.

As far as I know, Neuromins does not contain carrageenan. The oil from the algae is pure DHA and is the same source where fish obtain it.
