Protein powder with DHA powder(chocolate flavor)
DHA is found throughout the body, but is most abundant in the brain, eyes and heart. In fact, DHA represents about 97 percent of all omega-3 fats in the brain and 93 percent of all omega-3 fats in the eye. DHA accumulates both prenatally and postnatally in infant brain, eye and nervous system tissue. Developing infants cannot efficiently produce their own DHA and must obtain this vital nutrient through the placenta during pregnancy and form breast milk following birth. Increasing DHA in the diet during pregnancy and nursing significantly enhances the level of DHA available to the unborn baby and infant.
DHA is important for optimal infant brain and eye development. DHA is important throughout pregnancy, particularly in the third trimester when major brain growth occurs. Increasing DHA intake during pregnancy and nursing significantly enhances the level of DHA available to the foetus and infant. Certain studies have shown that supplementation of DHA in the mother’s diet improves infant developmental outcomes, such as: eye-hand coordination, motor skills, attention span.
DHA also provides important maternal benefit and helps lengthen gestation length and support the mental state of the mother. DHA provides key vitamins and minerals for daily nutritional support before and during pregnancy.
