The development of the brain will go through cells’ proliferation, differentiation, migration, death and synapses all these complicated processes, and nutrition and energy are tow important things for the brain to develop. The crucial time for people to develop their brains is when they are 0-6 years old. Fetuses and DHA is an infant brain development necessary trace nutrients, also can promote neural network forming, it is an important component of the retina material. During the last three months of pregnancy, The DHA in fetuses’ brains will increase to three or five times more, no wonder people also called DHA as “brain gold”.
DHA plays an important role in infants’ vision developing. All the Information gained by the brain, 60% of them comes from our vision. Therefore, children’s vision will affect their reactivity, spatial sense and speed of perception directly. DHA is an important component of the retina material, when children are lack of DHA, their vision ability will also be affected, which results in poor reaction capacity and poor observational ability. A research showed that when added DHA to 162 non-premature babies’ infant formula; all of their visions get improved after a year. If a pregnant woman couldn’t get enough DHA, her baby may have a lower weight, or even have mental retardation, and the baby’s mental flexibility, language competence, comprehensive ability and fine motor skills may also lower than normal kids.
The research found that, if you only taking DHA rely on your diet, the efficiency can be very low, which is only 1% to adult males but 9% to pregnant women. The main source of DHA for an infant comes from the mother’s milk, but if the mother doesn’t have milk, then the baby should take infant formula with DHA or DHA softgels, especially for premature babies. DHA 100 is derived from tuna’s orbital oil; obtain a lot of DHA which can strong the retina, increase memory, and help fetus’ brain, nerves and eyes to develop, which can make the baby smart and have a strong immunity.
