    I'm trying to read all that I can on DHA in the last few weeks. I'm reading that LPC-DHA in both SN-1 and SN-2 positions but no free DHA is incorporated in the brain via Mfsd2a in the BBB. It is interesting what different brain tissues incorporate different species of DHA. Rhodopsin, for example, performs much better with DHA in sn-2 than sn-1. It is also notable that sn-1 and sn-3 DHA is shunted toward beta-oxidation...

    I do have a question though. How does SN-2 DHA escape hydrolyzation to FFA DHA by pancreatic enzymes? The below picture implies it doesn't...
