What is DHA?
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is an omega-3 fatty acid which is a necessary nutrient for the body, especially the brain. It is found in abundant in deep water fish, such as tuna. DHA is essential for brain cells and retinas as well as the process of Myelinogenesis which is the proliferation of myelin sheaths throughout the nervous system. 60% of the tissues around the brain are composed of DHA. Needless to say that DHA is an essential component to a properly functioned brain.

Why DHA 70%?
Regular fish oil has Omega 3 acid with DHA and EPA ratio at 12% and 18%. However, recent development has resulted in fish oil extracted from tunas which yields as high as 70% of DHA and possesses high bioavailability which allows for greater absorbability and makes the substance last longer in the bloodstream. With that said, DHA 70% is much better than those in regular fish oil and yields greater effect in brain and eyesight development as well as improves cognitive skills.
