What does alcohol do to DHA?

 

Drinking even a little bit of alcohol effects the level of DHA in your brain and eyes. The body is extremely careful about DHA, because it is so important to the structure of the brain and other nervous tissue. Researcher N. Salem at the National Institutes of Health reports that in animal studies, rats fed low-fat diets for as long as a year still retain their DHA, but after a single drink of alcohol, DHA levels drop in a matter of hours. The same was found in cats and monkeys. Alcohol immediately leaches DHA out of brain and retinal cells. No wonder alcoholics and chronic, heavy drinkers have been found to be chronically deficient in DHA. They are also prone to other mental diseases such as depression.
