* *ADVISORY* *None.
DOSAGE:For high triglycerides, take two grams (or 2000 milligrams) twice daily. For infant development, the pregnant mom should take 300 mg starting after the 24th week of pregnancy. For minimal cognitive impairment, adults should take 900 mg daily.
CONCLUSION:We conclude that DHA is a safe and effective product, but that fish oil is a more cost effective source. DHA may interfere with medications that affect blood clotting. The benefits related to infant cognitive development and minimal cognitive impairment in the elderly are preliminary, so further research is needed before we can make a confident recommendation. If you do elect to try it, remember to include it in your list of medications when you visit your doctor and other health care providers.
