GLOSSARY
DHA (DOCOSHEXAENOIC ACID)

DHA (docoshexaenoic acid)

 

How does it work?

DHA is an essential omega 3 fatty acid found in high quantities in the brain, retina, central nervous system, male reproductive tissue and myocardium.1 It can be obtained in the diet directly from fish and seafood, however can be converted from ALA (alpha linolenic acid), found in plant sources such as flaxseed and walnuts.2 It is important for the structure and function of the brain and development of the eyes, particularly in foetal development during pregnancy.3 Together with EPA, another omega 3 fatty acid, it has shown to be anti-inflammatory and also provides support for the brain such as improving cognitive function, memory and mood.4

What results can be expected?

DHA may assist in improving cognition and memory, and has also shown to help reduce aggression induced by mental stress.5 DHA intake helps to support healthy foetal development during pregnancy and leads to healthy pregnancy outcomes.6
