Q: What is DHA good for and when should I take it?

Q: What is DHA good for and when should I take it?

Dr. Henry Cheg: Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) is one of the active ingredients of Omega 3 oils.  It has been proven to be essential for central nervous system development, maintaining normal nerve functions, preventing dementia,  improving cardiovascular functions, and promoting retinal health.  Most fish oils and Omega 3 preparations have only a small portion of DHA and predominantly EPA.  So choose a preparation that has DHA as the main ingredient like Metagenic’s High DHA® or DHA Lemon Gel®.  It is indicated especially for autism, ADHD, memory, neuropathies, fibromyalgia, cardio-vascular problems, and macular degeneration. 

Henry Cheng is a medical graduate of the University of London, England and is now Natural Products Consultant at Pharmasave Health Centre Downtown Cloverdale.
