Collection: DHA

Popular for: pregnancy and breastfeeding, infant development, general health, elderly health

DHA supports the structure of cell membranes, including cells of the brain, retina and central nervous system, making it an important fatty acid when considering growth and development in the foetus and beyond. Sources of DHA include oily fish and algae, with other plant sources of omega-3 requiring conversion by the body from short-chain omega-3s to long-chain DHA, although this is an inefficient process.

A daily DHA intake of 250mg is scientifically established as adequate for replacing the low turnover of DHA that occurs on a daily basis, with supplementation recommended for long-term maintenance of cell membrane integrity when oily fish does not form part of the diet. When considering a good quality fish oil containing DHA, it is important to ensure the fish oil is in the rTG (re-esterified triglyceride) form, as DHA is particularly susceptible to peroxidation (rancidity) which can more easily occur with fish oil in ethyl ester form.
