DHA has been used in clinical trials to support those with cardiovascular and cognitive related disorders. DHA is also a well-known fatty acid in the development of children and can be used as a pre-natal supplement by women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
The health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids, like EPA and DHA from fish oil, are plentiful and have received a lot of attention both in the media and in medical facilities throughout the United States. As the health benefits of EPA and DHA become common house hold conversation, the need for high quality high potency EPA and DHA products becomes more vital.
While efficacious EPA/DHA combination formulas remain the backbone of any fish oil regimen, fish oils containing high doses of either EPA or DHA follow current research trends. Strong evidence has emerged supporting the value of unique formulations of EPA and DHA for specific health related benefits.
High doses of DHA have been used in studies examining cognitive, eye, cardiovascular and pre-natal health. DHA is contained in the retina of the eye and is important for eye integrity. Recent studies used DHA along with other nutrients to support those with age related eye disorders.
Several reports suggest that maternal supplementation of fish oils or DHA alone during the third trimester and/or while breastfeeding can improve cognitive development in their newborns, improve their newborns sleep patterns (a measure of brain development), and even increase IQ scores (measured at age 4).
DHA is also a very important omega-3 fatty acid in cardiovascular and mental health. Studies measuring DHA levels in those with and without cardiovascular disease have found lower DHA level in those who have had a cardiovascular episode. The same is found in those with dementia and other related disorders.
