Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is an omega-3 fatty acid that is classified as essential fatty acid needed to be taken from outside source. Omega-3 fatty acids are "good fats," and are among the most important nutrients lacking in our diets today. DHA is the most essential and unsaturated Omega-3 fatty acid that is abundantly required for our body. In addition, because our bodies do not efficiently make DHA, we need to fulfill our requirement through supplements in order to keep our brains functioning optimally. It comprises 40% and 60% of the polyunsaturated fats (PUFA) in the human brain and in the retina, respectively. DHA helps maintain normal vision and memory. It is also required for optimal maintenance of heart and brain function.
