What is Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) ?

Docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA, is a polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acid found throughout the body. It is a major structural fat in the brain and retina accounting for up to 97% of the omega-3 fats in the brain and up to 93% of the omega-3 fats in the retina. It is also a key component of the heart. Numerous studies confirm that everyone, from infants to adults, benefits from an adequate supply of DHA.

Throughout every stage of life, both Omega-3 and Omega 6 Essential Fatty Acids are important for the health of our brain, eyes and heart. They are essential for health but our body requires them in a ratio not normaly achieved by the typical diet of today’s industralized nations. Our body has limited storage for them as such they must be consumed regulary. But as important as EFAs are, most of us don't get nearly enough.
