    DHA Rich Foods During Pregnancy!!



    DHA Rich Foods During Pregnancy!!-dha.jpg



    Docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA, is mainly found in animal products such as fish, eggs and meats.

    Richest Dietary sources of DHA include:

    • Algae - Certain algae are natural sources of DHA. And while most people believe that fish produce their own DHA, in fact, it’s the algae they feed on that make them a rich source of DHA.
    • Fatty fish including anchovies, salmon, herring, mackerel, trout and pilchards
    • Organ meat such as liver
    • Fish oil


    • Small amounts found in poultry and egg yolks


    There is a common misconception that foods like
    walnuts, linseed oil, and flaxseed oil are dietary sources of DHA. However, these foods are actually sources of alpha-linolenic acid, ALA, a precursor of DHA.


    Smaller, but still significant, amounts of DHA are in these foods:


    • Canned Tuna (which you can safely eat six ounces of each week)
    • Crab
    • Shrimp



    ** Fishes Names in Tamil - tamil name of fishes

    hi lalitha,
    DHA helps in brain development. It was usually prescribed as tablets during pregnancy to help baby's brain development.
