Uses For DHA Enhance
Mental and Visual Function: Fish oil promotes healthy mental function and maturation of the central nervous system, including support for cell health and neurotransmission. Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), an omega-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acid, is a component of neuronal and retinal cellular membranes and supports healthy cognitive and visual function. A longitudinal study suggest that infants born to mothers with higher DHA status demonstrated healthy cognitive capacity at 12 and 18 months. A randomized double blind study suggested that 4 year olds born to mothers who had taken fish oil had healthy cognitive function. Several studies have also revealed a relationship between dietary omega-3 fatty acids, healthy brain function and sleep patterns.*
Respiratory Health: Double blind randomized studies indicate that fish oil supplementation may promote healthy respiratory function in children. The omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA support respiratory health, including healthy bronchial smooth muscle function by moderating leukotriene and interleukin production.*
Immune Health: Omega-3 essential fatty acids may also support immune health in children, at least in part by maintaining healthy cytokine activity at the level of gene expression.*
