Omega-3 nutrition

DHA is an acronym for the nutrient docosahexaenoic acid, an Omega-3 fatty acid. (No wonder they abbreviate it.) Today, with people often eating on the go, our diets are typically deficient in Omega-3. Supplementing then becomes important because our bodies can’t make Omega-3 on their own.

In general, DHA is found in high amounts in the tissues of the brain and eye. A large amount of DHA is accumulated during the last in-utero trimester and the first year of life.

To get more DHA into your diet focus on eating the following:

  • Salmon
  • Herring
  • Anchovies
  • Tuna
