DHA is a semi-essential fatty acid of the omega three series, known for its marked metabolic activities. More precisely, DHA is attributed to: lipid-lowering properties, useful in reducing blood concentrations of triglycerides and LDL cholesterol; neuroprotective properties, effective in protecting the central nervous system from the damaging action of reactive oxygen species; antioxidant properties, biologically valuable for various organs and systems, including the reproductive one; anti-inflammatory properties, able to extinguish the inflammatory cascade upstream; Immunomodulatory and antiallergic properties. By virtue of these biological functions, supplementation with DHA has proved useful in the course of hypercholesterolemia, hypertriglyceridemia and increased cardiovascular risk, neurological and neurodegenerative diseases, eczema and allergic diseases, retinopathies and autoimmune diseases. The positive effects of DHA on the normal development of the unborn child’s central nervous system are also well characterized.
