Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) is a polyunsaturated fatty acid (C22H32O2) with six double bonds and is an omega-3 essential fatty acid. Fish oil is rich in DHA. Most DHA in fish and other organisms originate from photosynthetic and heterotrophic microalgae.GET A QUOTE

1.What is DHA?
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is an omega-3 fatty acid that is found along with eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) in cold-water fish, including tuna and salmon. Don't confuse DHA with EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid). They are both in fish oil, but they are not the same. DHA can be converted into EPA in the body.
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is essential for brain development during pregnancy and early childhood. It is also linked to improved heart health, better vision, and reduced inflammatory response.
2.How DHA Works?
Most animals rarely produce DHA by metabolism. Although α-linolenic acid (ALA) is also an omega-3 fatty acid, the efficiency of ALA conversion to DHA is extremely poor, and ALA cannot be used by humans, so DHA Additional supplements are required.
DHA can be found in cell membranes throughout the body and helps to transmit messages between nerves. The brain is a fatty organ, and between 10% and 20% of its total fats are DHA. Of the polyunsaturated fatty acids in the brain, 90% are DHA, which is especially concentrated in the brain's gray matter. Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is essential for the growth and functional development of the brain in infants. DHA is also required for maintenance of normal brain function in adults. The inclusion of plentiful DHA in the diet improves learning ability, whereas deficiencies of DHA are associated with deficits in learning.
During pregnancy, people may be advised to take prenatal supplements containing 200mg to 300mg of DHA due to its benefits on brain development.
Several studies have found positive associations between DHA supplementation during pregnancy and neurological development in infants. Supplementation with DHA during the later weeks of pregnancy is also linked to a decreased risk of early preterm labor. In the first 6 months of life, DHA is especially important for the development of the nervous system. Low levels of DHA in early childhood are associated with lower literacy ability, while higher levels are linked to enhanced cognitive development and performance, memory, and speed of performing mental tasks
