There are thousands of studies evaluating the role of omega-3 fatty acids, such as DHA, in human health and nutrition. Recent research has focused on the important role of DHA in the mental and visual development and function of infants, while new research is beginning to evaluate the possible effect of DHA in reducing the risk of certain neurological disorders.
Numerous studies confirm that everyone, from infants to adults, benefits from an adequate supply of DHA. DHA plays an important role in the following:
- Brain and central nervous system development and function
- Psychomotor development (such as eye-hand coordination)
- Visual development and function
