DHA is the most abundant fatty acid in the human brain.

Omega-3s are important for brain health and function. At least 50% of the brain is fat. DHA is the most abundant omega-3 fatty acid in the brain and has been shown to have neuroprotective properties, while EPA has been linked to reducing inflammation. Research has shown an impact of omega-3s on cognitive function and memory, symptoms of depression, ADHD, and recovery from traumatic brain injuries.
