What special role does DHA play in the brain ?

 


Your brain is actually made up of more than 60% fatty substances. It is a collection of billions of intricately woven cells. One kind of cell is the nerve cell, called a neuron, and it is responsible for communicating electrical signals throughout the brain and rest of the body. A protective membrane called a lipid bilayer surrounds each neuron. The lipid bilayer consists of two layers of compounds called phospholipids. Each phospholipid has a saturated fatty acid and an unsaturated one. You guessed it: the unsaturated one is usually DHA.
