Brain development is critical from the period of conception to infancy. And even through adulthood, the brain still need adequate nutrient to function properly.
DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid) is one of the critical nutrients needed. This omega-3 long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid is the primary building block for the brain, the retina of the eyes, and the nervous system. A small amount of DHA is synthesizes in our body naturally. However people who limit meat and egg intake, such as vegetarians or those on low fat diets, are vulnerable to have low levels of DHA.
a brain food for developing fetus & pregnant women
I DHA is critical throughout pregnancy for the fetus as it is the period of most rapid brain development. Premature babies born without the benefit of maternal delivery of DHA scored an average of 15 points lower on IQ tests than average full term infants when tested later in life.
DHA is also required for visual development, as it comprises about 60% of the rod outer segments
of the retina. Studies have shown that term babies fed formula without DHA have poorer vision than babies given a DHA supplement.
The natural presence of DHA in breast milk is another reason why breast-feeding wins over formula feeding. However the levels of DHA in the breast milk depend on the mother's diet. World
Health Organization (WHO) and United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) recommend 200mg of DHA per day. Studies have shown that babies who are fed formula without DHA have poorer vision equivalent to about one line on an eye chart than babies given a DHA supplement.
Women should also ensure adequate DHA intake before conception, throughout the nine months of pregnancy, during breast-feeding and afterwards. Pregnancy and lactation can deplete a woman's stores of DHA, and it takes time to rebuild the levels.
DHA is important in a child's diet as it affects learning ability. DHA deficiencies are associated with both learning and behavioral problems. Children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) also have low DHA levels and exhibit symptoms of fatty acid deficiency including hyperactivity and short attention span.
