General Nutrient Support DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) is a polyunsaturated fatty acid, and is an essential building block of brain and nerve tissue.
DHA can not be synthesized by the body, and therefore must be obtained from diet high in deep-sea cold water fish.
DHA, which constitutes approximately 40% of the brain, supports brain development during the last trimester of pregnancy when the unborn child\\\'s demand for neurological growth increases greatly.
If added to the mother\\\'s diet, it can help prevent the depletion of the mother\\\'s store of DHA, and support the developing baby\\\'s essential fatty acid needs.
Currently, the proposed Adequate Intake of DHA for pregnant and lactating women is 300 mg. per day. (ISSFAL)* Clinical investigations are continually carried out on the importance of DHA and Omega-3 fatty acids in health and disease.
