Docosahexaenoic and Arachidonic Acids as Neuroprotective Nutrients throughout the Life Cycle
Nutrients. 2021 Mar 18;13(3):986. doi: 10.3390/nu13030986.ABSTRACTThe role of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and arachidonic acid (AA) in neurogenesis and brain development throughout the life cycle is fundamental. DHA and AA are long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPUFA) vital for many human physiological processes, such as signaling pathways, gene expression, structure and function of membranes, among others. DHA and AA are deposited into ... read more
