What is DHA?
Docosahexanoic acid (DHA) is an omega-3 essential fatty acid (EFA). DHA is considered "essential" because the body cannot manufacture it and it must, therefore, be obtained from the diet. It’s easy to understand the importance of DHA when one realizes that the human brain and nervous system are made up of approximately 60% fat, with DHA being the primary one.
Other important essential fatty acids include the omega-3 fatty acid eicosapentanoic acid (EPA), as well as the omega-6 fat, linoleic fatty acid. All are major components of cell membranes throughout the body. When the diet is deficient in healthy fats, it uses replacement fats such as saturated and trans-fatty acids, and arachidonic acid, which are associated with many health ailments including chronic degenerative conditions and inflammation.
Why is DHA important?
In the developing fetus and in young infants, DHA is vital for the proper development of the brain, nervous system, and retina of the eye. It remains vital for the health of these organs, lifelong.
DHA is integral to the composition of the myelin sheath, the thick, fatty layer that insulates and protects nerves. DHA keeps the myelin sheath flexible and allows charged ions to be exchanged along the membrane, which facilitates electrical conduction. This ensures continuous, uninterrupted relay of information throughout the nervous system, our body's “electric highway."
Essential fatty acids are incorporated into virtually every cell membrane throughout the body. EPA (though not DHA) also serves as a substrate for production of locally produced, hormone-like substances (eicosanoids, prostaglandins, leukotrienes, etc.) that regulate a wide variety of functions including blood pressure, blood clotting, blood lipid levels, immune response, and inflammation.
Is DHA necessary during pregnancy, breastfeeding, and childhood?
Absolutely. DHA is essential for brain and eye development, and is recommended during both pregnancy and breastfeeding. Infants obtain the DHA they need from their mother's breast milk; infants who aren't breast fed are recommended to be given a DHA-supplemented formula.
Additionally, studies have shown that children with conditions such as ADD/ADHD often show a deficiency in DHA. Supplementing with DHA may significantly improve symptoms of ADHD.
Can DHA improve mental health?
Research has shown that individuals suffering from depression are often deficient in DHA. Studies suggest that taking fish oil that is rich in DHA may help antidepressants to work better, and that fish oil may improve depression associated with bipolar disorder.
How long will it take before I see results?
Improvement in DHA levels may be observed within 1-2 months; however, continued usage is recommended for optimal benefit.
What is the recommended dosage?
Take 1 to 2 softgels daily with a meal.
