DHA Xtra
60 softgels
Item Catalog Number: 27555

Nordic Naturals DHA Xtra is an omega-rich formula that offers increased DHA potency in fewer softgels.

With 100% natural strawberry essence for a great fruity taste, DHA Xtra offers 900 mg of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) per serving, maximizing your dosage and benefits. Although the omega-3s EPA and DHA occur naturally together in fish oil and work together in the body, research shows that each fatty acid has unique benefits.

DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid that helps support development of the brain, nervous system and the retina of the eye.1-3 DHA is critical to maintaining healthy brain function. Billions of neurons in the brain communicate with each other through connectors called synapses. Synapses have a higher concentration of DHA than almost any tissue in the body. DHA is highly concentrated within brain tissue, accounting for 40% of the polyunsaturated fats in the brain.1 Scientists are currently researching the possibility that a lack of DHA may contribute to certain behavioral and mood conditions affecting both children and adults. Some studies have also explored a possible link between insufficient DHA and age-related mental decline.4-6

DHA is a major structural fat in the retina of the eye, accounting for up to 60% of the total fatty acids. Because DHA is so prevalent in eye tissue, many researchers suspect that it plays an important role in visual development during infancy and childhood. DHA is also being studied for its possible impact on adult eye health.
