The Arachidonic acid bulk powder is made by spray dried microencapsulating technology. Arachidonic acid is important because the human body uses it as a starting material in the synthesis of two kinds of essential substances, the prostaglandins and the leukotrienes, both of which are also unsaturated carboxylic acids.

Docosahexaenoic acid  and arachidonic acid are fatty acids found in breast milk, as well as in some foods, like algae (microalgae) and eggs. (Fatty acids combine to make fat molecules.) Both DHA and ARA are classified as long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids, or PUFAs, a special type of fatty acids. They each play important roles in our bodies and health throughout our life.

The human body can make small amounts of DHA and ARA from α-linolenic acid (ALA) and linoleic acid (LA), respectively. ALA and LA are also classified as PUFAs.  In fact, ALA and LA are known as “essential fatty acids”. They are the only two essential fatty acids, because our body cannot make them, so they MUST be obtained from our diet. ALA and LA are found various foods, as well as in breast milk and in infant formulas.

DHA and ARA play very important roles in early brain and eye development.The levels of DHA and ARA in the brain rapidly increase during the last trimester of pregnancy and throughout the first two years of life. While breast milk naturally contains ALA and LA, it also contains DHA and ARA.

The addition of docosahexaenoic acid DHA and arachidonic acid ARA to infant formulas is supported by the Food and Drug and Administration (FDA), the World Health Organization, the National Academy of Sciences, and various other regulatory bodies around the world.
