What Is Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA)?

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is an omega-3 fatty acid that is a primary 
structural component of the human brain, cerebral cortex, skin, and 
retina. It can be synthesized from alpha-linolenic acid or obtained 
directly from maternal milk (breast milk),algae oil, or fish oil.

DHA's structure is a carboxylic acid (-oic acid) with a 22-carbon 
chain (docosa- is Greek for 22) and six (hexa-) cis double bonds (-
en-);with the first double bond located at the third carbon from the 
omega end.

-For pregnant and lactating women, DHA supports brain and eye development of the baby.
-For infants, DHA is important for brain and eye development.
-For children, DHA is important for ongoing brain and eye development.
-For adults, DHA supports brain, eye & heart health.
