Docosahexaenoic acid or DHA is a long-chain omega-3 fat that occurs naturally in oily fish such as mackerel, salmon, pilchards, sardines, trout, kippers, herring and fresh tuna. It has several roles in the body including contributing to normal brain development in children. It’s also needed to maintain normal brain function and vision in all ages. Plus when combined with another long-chain omega-3 fat called eicosapentanoic acid or EPA, it helps the heart to work normally and maintains normal blood pressure and levels of triglycerides in the blood (a type of fat found in the blood).
