What special role does DHA play in the eye?
The retina is the light-sensitive part of the eye. It is a layer of many different kinds of cells. Just like neurons, these cells are protected by a lipid bilayer, which in turn consist of phospholipids. This time, both fatty acids of the phospholipid are unsaturated, and typically, both are DHA. You can imagine the importance of getting enough DHA during the first few years of life, when the brain, eyes, and nervous systems are developing. Even into adulthood, the body needs adequate amounts of DHA to maintain and replace cells.
