DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is a long-chain omega-3 fatty acid that comes
from fish oil. It is the longest and most unsaturated of 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 during 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;

Getting children to eat fish regularly can be challenging. What's more,
fish containing good sources of 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
LifeSource Vitamins Kids DHA provides a total of 270 mg 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.

Learn 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.*
Why 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 system.*
Good 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 a 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 performance.
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 on 15-year-old schoolchildren 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 interesting beginning.
An encouraging study showed that a DHA/EPA combination given to autistic
5-17-year-olds lessened their hyperactive symptoms. Studies are ongoing 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.
