DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is a fatty acid found in the meat of cold-water fish, including mackerel, herring, tuna, halibut, salmon, cod, whale blubber, and seal blubber.

Don't confuse DHA with EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid). They are both in fish oil, but they are not the same.

DHA is used as a supplement for premature babies and as an ingredient in baby formula during the first four months of life to promote better mental development. This practice probably started because DHA is found naturally in breast milk.

DHA is used for treating type 2 diabetes coronary artery disease (CAD), dementia and attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Some people use DHA is for improving vision preventing an eye disease called age-related macular degeneration (AMD), preventing and treating depression.

How does it work?
DHA plays a key role in the development of eye and nerve tissues. DHA may also reduce the risk of heart and circulatory disease by decreasing the thickness of the blood (a natural blood thinner) and lowering blood levels of triglycerides.

- Age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Increased consumption of DHA in the diet is associated with a lower risk of developing vision loss due to aging.

- Clogged arteries (coronary artery disease). Increased consumption of DHA in the diet might lower the risk of death in people with coronary artery disease.

- High cholesterol. Research suggests that taking 1.2-4 grams (1,200mg to 4,000mg) of DHA daily can lower triglyceride levels in people with high cholesterol.

- Alzheimer's disease. Some research suggests that getting more DHA from the diet might help to prevent Alzheimer's disease.

- Dementia. Early research suggests that taking 750mg of DHA daily for one year might improve symptoms of dementia.

- Dyslexia. Taking DHA seems to improve dyslexia.

- Movement and coordination disorder (dyspraxia). Taking DHA seems to improve movement disorders in children with dyspraxia.

- Improving infant development.

- Liver disease (nonalcoholic fatty liver disease). Early research suggests that taking 250-500 mg of DHA daily for 6 months reduces fat accumulation in the liver.
