From the time you are born, docosahexaenoic acid, DHA, is a key component for the developing brain and eyes. It continues to support brain and eye function throughout life. As a matter of fact, DHA is a major structural and functional fat found in the brain and eyes and is also a key component of the tissue found in the heart and cardiovascular system. DHA is one of the omega-3 fats recommended by the American Heart Association and USDA Dietary Guidelines for good cardiovascular health. Omega-3s are one of the most studied nutrients of all time with approximately 30,000 scientific publications linking omega-3s to a number of different health benefits. In fact, one study that provided 900mg of algal DHA for six months suggests that DHA supplementation at this level may support the memory of healthy adults aged 55 years and older.
