DHA or docosahexaenoic acid is a vital omega-3 fatty acid that supports healthy brain, vision, nerve, and other cellular functions in our body.

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is a polyunsaturated fatty acid composed of 22 carbon atoms and six double bonds. It is the main structural component of the human brain, cerebral cortex, skin and retina, playing an important role in their development and function throughout life.

Maternal Health & Fetal Development

Backed by several studies, it plays an essential role during pregnancy as a developing fetus cannot efficiently produce the DHA that is needed to develop their brain, nerves, and vision (1,2,7)*.

Babies can only obtain DHA through the mom's placenta or from an outside source, such as breast milk, after birth. Additionally, research shows that supplementation with DHA prior and during pregnancy significantly reduces the risk of preterm birth (5)*.

Brain, Vision, and Nerve Health Support

Even among adults and seniors, DHA plays a pivotal role in the maintenance of normal brain function(12)* throughout life. DHA also contributes to the maintenance of normal blood triglyceride levels (based on a daily intake of 2g)(10,12)*.

In a Randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, clinical study, twenty-four-week supplementation with 900 mg/d DHA improved learning and memory function and supported cognitive health is aging adults(15)*.

The importance of Omega-3


The World Health Organization (WHO), the Heart Foundation and the International Society for the Study of Fatty Acids and Lipids (ISSFAL) recommend a daily intake of 250-500mg/g EPA and DHA.

The March of Dimes® recommends that pregnant women consume at least 200 mg of DHA every day1. As most women do not consume that amount of DHA through diet alone, a good quality Omega-3 DHA helps ensure their daily DHA intake is at least 200 mg during pregnancy and while breastfeeding1,2.
