Docosahexaenoic acid (commonly known as DHA) is a long-chain omega-3 essential fatty acid. Most animals make very little DHA metabolically, however small amounts are manufactured internally through the consumption of a-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid found in chia, flax, and many other seeds and nuts. DHA is most often found in fish oil.

 

DHA is a major fatty acid in sperm and brain phospholipids, especially in the retina. Dietary DHA can reduce the level of blood triglycerides in humans, which may reduce the risk of heart disease. Low levels of DHA cause reduction of brain serotonin levels and have been associated with ADHD, Alzheimer’s disease, and depression, among other diseases, and there is mounting evidence that DHA supplementation may be effective in combating such diseases.

 

Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA or also icosapentaenoic acid) is a long-chain omega-3 fatty acid. EPA is a polyunsaturated fatty acid that acts as a precursor for prostaglandin-3. (A prostaglandin is any member of a group of lipid compounds that are derived enzymatically from fatty acids and have important functions in the body.) The US National Institute of Health’s Medline Plus lists a large number of conditions in which EPA (alone or in concert with other omega-3 sources) is known or thought to be effective. Most of these involve its ability to lower inflammation.
