    Here's an interesting fact: most people believe that fish produce their own docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), when in fact, it's the algae in their food chain that makes fish a rich source of omega fatty acids. But most of us don't go fishing for algae, right? Instead I recommend adding this amazing natural food to your diet through food that is fortified with DHA. From juice to tortilla shells to chocolate bars, you have so many choices. One of the easiest ways to get your DHA is in Genesis Today Omega Orange Juice. It's creamy and delicious, and you can pick it up in the refrigerated section at Walmart.
