Benefits: Fish Oil & Omegas, Heart & Vessels, Mood, Women's Health, Brain Development
DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid that is essential for the development of a healthy brain, as well as nerves and eyes.* DHA is essential for healthy fetal and infant development, accumulating in a baby’s developing brain primarily during the third trimester of pregnancy through the first two years of life.* DHA supports a healthy pregnancy as well.* Although the body can make some DHA, its conversion rate is low, so most DHA needs to be consumed in the diet. The primary dietary sources of DHA – fatty, cold-water fish – aren’t heavily consumed in a western diet, so an omega-3 nutritional supplement can help a mother reach an optimal DHA level.

DHA by the numbers:
Approximately 60 percent of a healthy brain is comprised of fat.
DHA accounts for more than 90 percent of the fatty acids in the brain.
DHA accounts for more than 90 percent of the fatty acids in the retina.
Two lobes of the brain – frontal and prefrontal – rely heavily on DHA and are responsible for the ability to learn, problem solve, focus attention, and maintaining a positive mood.*
