A mother’s intake of the omega-3 fatty acid DHA during pregnancy helps the development of the retina of the eye of her baby. Studies also show there is a connection between a mother’s DHA intake and her child’s brain and vision development.
Omega-3 is a collective term for a group of different fatty acids. Some of these fatty acids have been proven to have positive health effects, which is why it’s important to choose omega-3 products that contain the fatty acid types that are proven to have an effect, namely DHA and EPA. DHA and EPA are long-chained, flexible fatty acids that are especially beneficial if present in the cell membranes of the heart and blood vessels.
Older children and adults need DHA and EPA as they are building blocks for brain maintenance and heart function. DHA further helps maintain normal vision in adults and the elderly.
As these fatty acids are part of virtually all body cells, omega-3 is of benefit to people of all ages.
