Docosahexaenoic Acid

Docosahexaenoic Acid

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is a nutrient needed by brain and nerve cells. It is a major component of the brain and retina, and has a possible role in nerve transmission. DHA is found in significant quantities in fish, fish oils, and the fat of marine mammals who live on fish; it is not found in significant amounts in vegetable oils, land animals, or dairy products.
