Arachidonic Acid (ARA), an omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA), is an essential fatty acid for human beings. ARA plays important roles as a structural lipid associated predominantly with phospholipids in blood, liver, muscle and other major organ systems. ARA is also a precursor of many important eicosanoids, such as prostaglandins, thromboxanes, and leukotrienes, etc. These derivates enhance physiological activity and immunoregulation.

ARA plays an important role in infant nutrition, particularly is essential for infant brain and visual nerve development. However, ARA cannot be synthesized by infants, it must be supplemented from diets (breast milk, infant formula, etc.) to avoid deficiency of ARA, and fulfill the demand of well mental and cognitive development of infants.
