It’s an omega-3 fatty ACID. Although the body does have the capability of making some DHA, the addition of DHA to some of our formulas is an “insurance policy” to provide good amounts of this fatty acid to promote good brain and eye development.
It supports BRAIN tissue development and BETTER eye health (In fact, it makes up 60% of brain lipids, and improves focus, attention, memory and cognitive function)
It’s CRUCIAL during pregnancy and the first years of life.
You may have heard that DHA is bad, but OURS is really, really good.
DHA is an important nutrient that works to ensure optimal brain and eye development, and gives children a great head start in life. (DHA can be bad if it’s processed with hexane—a harsh and totally unnecessary chemical, but hexane is NEVER used by Nature’s One). In fact, Nature’s One Baby’s Only® Formula is the ONLY formula on the market supplemented with certified organic DHA formulated without ANY harsh chemicals.
Nature’s One hexane-free certified organic DHA is naturally derived from egg yolks from our own humanely raised chickens.
We extract phospholipid DHA directly from chicken egg yolks without the use of toxic solvents like our competitors—a more bio-available and readily absorbed form than the triglyceride form found in fish oil or algae. It’s nature’s safe and gentle way of delivering crucial DHA to the body, and also provides natural choline, a member of the B-Vitamin family that improves cell functioning.
