What is DHA?
DHA, short for docosahexaenoic acid, is the most abundant omega-3 fatty acid found in the brain and retina. It’s also a structural component of nerve cells in the brain and eyes and a component of heart tissue. DHA is not made by the body and therefore must be obtained through diet. Coldwater, fatty fish such as tuna, salmon and mackerel, as well as fish oil supplements, are ideal sources. DHA is also present in edible seaweed/algae.
How does DHA support health?
DHA is the major fatty acid of the nervous system and is essential for normal brain function and retinal development*
Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are well known for their cardioprotective properties, their ability to maintain cognitive function, their potential to support healthy mood and their positive impact on joint comfort and flexibility*
EFAs are needed for proper inflammatory responses throughout the body*
Some scientific evidence has linked insufficient DHA intake to age-related mental decline*
Higher blood levels of omega-3 EFAs including DHA and EPA are associated with better mood*
