What is the difference between an Omega-3 Fatty Acid and DHA?
DHA is one particular kind of omega-3 fatty acid. The omega-3 fatty acids are a group of fatty acids which share a common trait, specifically, that the first double bond occurs after the 3rd carbon atom. Many fatty acids have this trait, such as DHA, EPA, and ALA. The difference between these fatty acids is the total number of carbon and hydrogen atoms each has. DHA has twenty-two carbon atoms, EPA has twenty, while ALA has eighteen. Each plays unique roles in the body, depending on their different structures. Yet they are all classified as omega-3 fatty acids and share the defining trait.
