Nervonic acid is a monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acid. Nervonic acid has been identified as important in the biosynthesis of nerve cell myelin. It is found in the sphingolipids of white matter in human brain.
Nervonic acid is abundant in king salmon (a.k.a. Chinook salmon) with 140 mg/100g, yellow mustard seed (83 mg/100g), flaxseed (64 mg/100g), sockeye salmon (40 mg/100g), sesame seed (35 mg/100g), and macadamia nuts (18 mg/100g).
