The importance of Omega-3 fatty acids
Adults can obtain DHA and EPA indirectly through the conversion of the essential fatty acid alpha-linoleic acid (ALA), direct source of DHA and EPA. The foetus and infants in early life need to receive these fatty acids directly as they only have a limited capability to convert essential fatty acids to more active long chain fatty acids such as DHA.
Brain and eye development
DHA is the predominant fatty acid in the central nervous system, found in the stracture walls of brain cells. Amazingly, the foetal brain is made up of 60% fats of which 40% is DHA. There is large increase in DHA uptake by the feotus and a corresponding increase in cerebral DHA content during the last trimester of pregnancy and the first post natal month. at birth the baby’s brain weight is about 70% of an adult’s brain weight; 15% of brain growth occurs during infancy and the pre-school years.
DHA is important through out these periods of development. DHA is found in even greater concentrations in the retina, where it contributes up to 60% of the fatty acid content.
