DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid)

Updated: Mar 11

DHA is an omega-3-fatty acid. It is the basic component for the development of many important human organs like skin, nerve tissues, and the eye retina. It is commonly found in cold-water fish, algae, and even breast milk (as it is required by the baby for proper development). It is also produced in plants in small quantities.
