Overview
Docosahexaenoic acid, better known simply as DHA, is an omega-3 essential fatty acid. One of the primary building blocks of the brain and the eyes, DHA ensures optimal composition of cells in the brain, retinal tissue, heart, and parts of the nervous system. It is also vital for proper cell signaling as cells transport electrical currents that send messages throughout the body. Because of DHA's role in proper growth and development for these critical areas, it is of particular importance to developing fetuses and young infants. During the last trimester of pregnancy and continuing through the first two years of infancy (and beyond) DHA levels in the brain rapidly increase and in order to sustain this neural development, DHA must be obtained through a healthy diet or supplementation. As much as 60% of the brain is comprised of fat with approximately 36% coming from DHA alone; therefore a lack of this essential fatty acid will be a limiting factor in brain development and cognitive capacity. Although present in human breast milk, DHA is not in cow's milk; therefore many physicians recommend breast-feeding or the use of infant formula containing DHA.

Our Chewable Kids' DHA is available in a delicious lemon flavor and delivers 40 mg of DHA per softgel.
