Application DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) and EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid)belong to Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. They are essential long chain unsaturated fatty acids for human beings. While human can’t generate these two acids in our body, we need to obtain them from daily foods or supplements. Deep sea fishes such as tuna, anchovy, sardine etc. contain large quantities of DHA and EPA in their body.

DHA is vital in maintaining normal physiological functions of our CNS system, and directly related to the etiology of a variety of neurodegenerative diseases(e.g. Alzheimer’s disease, major depression, etc.)if their levels are found to be significantly lower. DHA is of very high concentration in our brain cell membrane and retina, therefore if an infant is not getting sufficient supply of it may have the risk of either neurotic or sight development.
