Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is the major fatty acid of neurological and retinal membranes. It makes up more than 30% of the structural lipid of the neuron and is particularly enriched in synaptosomal membranes. A number of seemingly unrelated neuropathological conditions including depression, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and dementia have a common association in that patients exhibit a subnormal DHA status. Clinical studies in patients with adrenoleukodystrophy, tong chain… CONTINUE READING
