The Importance of Omega-3
When you welcome a new baby to your family you want to make sure you give it every opportunity to properly grow and develop. One of the best ways to support the development process is with Nordic Naturals DHA Infant. DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid, and it is essential to proper development of the brain and eyes.
DHA is one of the most important nutrients to infants, because it is used by the brain to build tissue. During the last trimester DHA starts to accumulate in the brain and eyes, and it is needed to get the brain ready for birth. After birth DHA still remains important, and without it the brain wouldn’t be able to develop at the proper rate. Studies have shown that children who regularly receive DHA tend to have higher IQs than children who don’t receive DHA. DHA is also needed to fully develop the eyes.
DHA Infant also contains the omega-3 fatty acid EPA. EPA supports the brain by helping to increase blood flow. This helps to bring oxygen and nutrients to the growing brain, and EPA can help support the child’s mental and emotional development.
DHA Infant is also a good source for the omega-9 fatty acid oleic acid, Vitamin A, D3, and E. Oleic acid helps the brain to run more efficiently by supporting the transmission of nerve impulses. Vitamin A can help to support immunity by helping to strengthen the skin and mucous membranes. This may help to keep harmful agents from entering the body. Vitamin D3 is great for infants, because it helps to promote cell differentiation. Vitamin D3 helps to assign specific jobs and tasks to cells, and this helps the body to run in a more efficient state. Vitamin E can further support the cardiovascular and nervous systems, but more importantly it is a great antioxidant. It helps to fight the formation of free radicals, and this may help to reduce cellular damage.
