What is DHA, and why is important?

Your own levels of DHA is contingent primarily on diet. You acquire this important fat from dietary sources of DHA such as fatty fish or liver. According to the National Institute of Health, DHA levels in American women are typically too low. Because the American diet is most often overly dependant on red meats, eggs, poultry and other protein sources not high in DHA, DHA levels in the body are often only 25% (or even less) of the recommended range.

EverlyWell’s DHA test is designed for women who are currently breastfeeding and want to monitor the DHA content in their breast milk.

DHA is a critical part of baby’s health, especially nervous system development. Babies’ brains grow rapidly in the early years, and it is critical that they receive the proper nutrients, including DHA, to facilitate this growth. Baby formula is fortified with DHA, but women who are taking advantage of the numerous benefits of breastfeeding may wish to monitor how much DHA they are providing to their nursing infant.

We believe that knowing your DHA levels can empower you to continue to provide the maximum benefits breastfeeding offers.

The EverlyWell DHA test is simple, safe, and convenient.

It is all done from the privacy and comfort of your own home. Place a few drops of breastmilk on the test card, allow it to dry, and mail it to us. It is that easy! This small sample is all our lab needs to measure your breast milk DHA levels. We will email you when your results are ready. Results are easy to understand; we will report your DHA levels and compare them to a known range.

EverlyWell can provide suggestions on diet and lifestyle changes that may improve your own DHA levels. As with all EverlyWell tests, we encourage you to share your results directly with your doctor.
