DHA, also known as docohexaenoic acid, is an omega 3 essential fatty acid. Unlike fish oils on the market DHA we use comes from algae oil, which makes it a true vegan alternative. Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. DHA is one of the most prominent essential fatty acids in the brain and in the retina. With regard to DHA and the fetal brain in pregnancy, researchers found that infants born to mothers with higher blood levels of the omega-3 fatty acid DHA at delivery had more advanced levels of attention spans well into their second year of life. During the first six months of life, these infants were two months ahead of those babies whose mothers had lower DHA levels* Our liquid DHA with fresh lemon flavor has an adult dose of 14 dropswhich provides 200 mg of algal DHA.
