@purplespark: DHA stands for docosahexaenoic acid. It is an essential omega 3 fatty acid. It serves many roles. Our bodies can’t synthesize DHA from fatty acid precursors. DHA must be obtained through our diet.
DHA is very important for brain development in the fetus, as well as throughout life. It contains phospholipids that are very necessary in the development of neural membrames. In lamens terms, DHA is necessary for our brain cells to communicate properly.
