IMPORTANCE OF DHA IN COGNITIVE DEVELOPMENT
Numerous clinical trials have shown the importance of the polyunsaturated fatty acid Omega 3 DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) in brain development during childhood. It is known that DHA is fundamental and essential for proper cognitive and visual development. The brain, the retina and other nerve tissues are particularly rich in DHA. The greatest need for DHA in the brain occurs mainly during the last trimester of pregnancy and continues until the end of the second year of life. Since its endogenous formation is relatively low, its contribution to the diet is very important to contribute to an optimal neurological development!
Paediatricians recommend that children eat blue fish, at least twice a week, as a source of Omega 3. This is not always possible, since children do not usually like fish, let alone blue fish; which may pose a risk to the child’s correct neurological development. That is why it is important to supplement the child’s diet with Omeguis droplets.
