Nordic Naturals Children’s DHA is a delicious way for children to supplement their diet with the essential fatty acid DHA. DHA (docaxhexaeonic acid) is found in abundance in the cold waters of the deep sea fish salmon, mackerel, cod and sardines. DHA is an omega 3 fatty acid, components of fat or lipids that are beneficial to us and are called essential fatty acids (EFA’s). Omega 3 fatty acids are anti-inflammatory, help prevent heart disease, and are thought to be protective against several different types of cancer. DHA is found in cells throughout the body, but primarily centralized in cell of the nervous system. This fatty acids helps to support normal development of the brain and retina of infants and children, helps with signalling between nerve cells and enhances neurotransmitter communication. However, the effects of DHA on the nervous system may well extend beyond infancy. Young adults and teenagers given DHA have shown less aggression in response to mental stress, and adults who have neurological conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, autism and even depression can benefit from DHA.
A high concentration of DHA can be found in mother's breast milk, a biological sign that DHA is needed for babies and young children. However, the amount of DHA is reflective of dietary intake of EFA’s, which is low in western societies because processed foods are so widely available. Supplementation of DHA is highly recommended for pregnant and nursing mothers, as well as all women who are trying to get pregnant
Conditions for which Children’s DHA is beneficial are; attention deficit disorder; asthma; autistic disorder; depression; diabetes and for the health of children.
