DHA is the most abundant essential omega-3 fatty acid in the brain and as such is vital for normal brain development and for maintenance of normal brain function throughout life.
DHA plays a critical role in health and well-being. It comprises over 50% of the fatty acids in the brain’s grey matter and in the retina, suggesting that it is critical for cognitive and visual function.
DHA is also a fundamental compound in the structure and activity of the membranes of all cells throughout the body.
Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil may also help lower triglycerides, lower blood pressure, reduce the risk of blood clots and improve the health of arteries.
