• Supports the brain, eyes and central nervous system.
How It Works
DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) are essential fatty acids found almost exclusively in fish that live in deep, cold water. These fatty acids are key building blocks in every cell in the body. DHA and EPA are recognized for their health benefits in all life stages and are essential components as the body grows and develops.
DHA is critical for the optimal development and function of the brain, eyes and central nervous system during infancy and childhood. Further, DHA is a major structural fat in the brain and eyes, representing approximately 97% of all omega-3 fats in the brain and 93% of all omega-3 fats in the retina.
Scientific studies have shown the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids, especially DHA, on human brain function as well as growth and development. DHA supplementation during pregnancy has been shown to enhance intelligence, cognition and vision in infants and young children. The beneficial effects of DHA extend beyond infancy, with application in enhancing children’s performance on intelligence tests and aiding in child learning and behavioral issues.1
