More than two thirds of the dry weight of the human brain is fat, and of that fat, one quarter is docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). DHA is an important building block for the membranes surrounding brain cells, particulary the synapses, which lie at the heart of efficient brain function.
DHA also regulates the production of Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF). DHA orchestrates the production, connectivity, and vialbility of brain cells while at the same time enhancing function.
