General Nutrient Support DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is a polyunsaturated fatty acid found in deep-sea cold water fish. DHA is an essential nutrient for proper brain, nervous system, and visual function and must be obtained through the diet. A healthy balance of DHA is essential to properly care for the brain throughout life, particularly during the early stages of development. A high concentration of DHA can be found in mother’s breast milk. However, the level is directly related to the amount of omega-3 fatty acids that are consumed in the mother’s diet. Due to refined foods and trendy diets, many individuals have reduced their intake of the dietary sources of omega-3 fatty acids, contributing to lower levels of DHA in breast milk. The impact of low DHA intake on neurological function of adults and children is the subject of ongoing clinical investigations.
