Arachidonic acid is a polyunsaturated fatty acid present in the human cell membranes. It reacts with the molecule Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) and forms a nutritious compound which is responsible for cognitive and behavioral functions in the humans. Arachidonic acid is metabolized in the body through dietary intake, especially through a fatty acid-rich food, however, this ability is not developed in newborn babies. The arachidonic acid is highly concentrated in the skeletal muscles in the body. Newborn babies consume arachidonic acid through breast milk. To address this inadequacy in infants, especially amongst those infants who are deprived of breast milk, food manufacturers have extracted arachidonic acid from various sources and incorporated arachidonic acid in products such as infant formulae. Amongst adult arachidonic acid is consumed by athletes and body-builders. Arachidonic acid is used to relieve muscular pain that is felt after the first workout.
