DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is a long-chain omega-3 fatty
acid that comes from fish oil. It is the longest and most unsaturated of the
omega-3 fatty acids and is considered physiologically essential in the proper
growth and development of the brain, nervous system and retina to support
optimal cognitive function. DHA actually accumulates in the brain our first
couple years of life; no other omega fatty acid does this. At birth DHA makes
up about 93% of the omega-3 acids in the retina and 97% of the omega-3 fatty
acids in the brain and continue to increase as the brain develops during the
first 2 years of life and after based on measures in the cerebral cortex up to
18 years of age. Basically; DHA = brain food for your Kids!*

Getting children to eat fish regularly can be challenging.
What's more, fish containing good sources of the healthy omega 3's harbor
unsafe levels of mercury, PCB's and other harmful substances. DHA is the first
fatty acid used by the brain to form brain cell membranes. Approximately 60% of
the human brain is made up of fatty acids. Research suggests that these healthy
fats may play a role in children with attention deficit disorders such as

omega-3's per serving, equivalent to about 4 oz. of canned light tuna or cooked
cod, 2oz cooked halibut, 0.5oz sardines or 0.8oz salmon.
what DHA really is and why it is important during the toddler years when the brain
grows to 85% of its full size.
Chances are you’ve heard about DHA. But
beyond knowing it’s something that’s good for you
and your children, you may not know much more. It’s not always easy to get the
real facts. Here’s a quick introduction to this important nutrient and a few
reasons why it’s important during toddlerhood.
DHA is an omega-3 fatty
acid and it’s a key building block of the brain and eyes. The name DHA is
scientific shorthand for docosahexaenoic acid.*
is DHA important?
DHA is important for the
healthy structure and function of the brain. As a baby develops, it supports
not only brain development, but the eyes and nervous system, too. And there’s
even more good news. Studies in infants have shown DHA helps support
respiratory health and contributes to the development of a healthy immune
for babies and for toddlers.
Clinical studies show
that DHA helps support cognitive abilities, visual acuity and overall brain
development in babies. Because DHA is beneficial both in utero and after a baby
is born, this nutrient is found in prenatal supplements and infant formulas.
Once a baby outgrows formula, DHA continues to be important during the first
three years of life when a child’s brain grows to 85% of its complete size.*
This Just In:
If you want your child
to reach his or her maximum intellectual potential, the research is clear that
plentiful intake of the omega-3 fat DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is essential.
In the US, most kids get
hardly any of this healthful fat, found primarily in seafood, in their diets,
are most likely missing out on this simple opportunity to boost brain
Most recently, two new
studies have confirmed that boosting your child’s intake of DHA as an infant
and into the school-age years may be a simple way to generate measurable
improvements in their brain function.
In Sweden a study was conducted of 15 year old school
children and found that those who consumed fish high in omega-3’s more than
once per week had 15% higher grades than those who consumed fish less than once
a week. Not only that, another study showed cumulative benefits from prolonged
ingestion of DHA may eventually over time have positive effects on school
The supplemented kids had improvement (based on the Hopkins
Verbal Learning Test) in recognition by 9%, discrimination index improvement of
20% and the same with the spelling test. DHA even seems to have a positive effect on
dyslexia; after taking 480mg of DHA+108mg of EPA+ a lower level of GLA(gamma-linolenic
acid, an omega-6 fatty acid) for 20 weeks the 12 year olds showed a 60%
improvement on reading tests. It should be noted however this was an open-pilot
trial. More studies are being done and need to be done but this is certainly an
An encouraging study showed that a DHA/EPA combination
given to autistic 5-17 year olds lessened their hyperactive symptoms. Studies
are on-going to find the right combination levels of DHA/EPA and dosage to help
these kids. Other problems such as ADHD could be caused by metabolic
differences in fatty acid metabolism, causing fatty acid profiles that are out
of whack, including lower levels of DHA causing poor information transmission
in nerves. Scientists are researching what combination of omega-3 and omega-6
supplementation could help with certain aspects of ADHD behaviors.
The big deal with DHA and even a DHA/EPA combination is
that it has been shown to be imperative for developmental health in kids and
people of all ages especially as we get older.
