Nu-Mega is continually involved in new scientific research, and our scientists closely follow other new developments in our field. New studies can be found below, and also on our Research page.

Among omega-3 long chain poly unsaturated fatty acids in the brain (n-3 LCPUFA), DHA accounts for the largest fraction (~40%). During the last trimester of pregnancy, the foetus is estimated to acquire ~60mg/day of n-3 LCPUFA.

Brain cells are rich in the omega-3 fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which is essential for normal brain growth and function. DHA in the brain comes entirely from the blood. It was not known how DHA crosses the protective blood-brain barrier (BBB) to enter the brain.
