What is DHA?
DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid) is an omega 3 fatty acid and a primary structural component of the Brain, Skin, retina and cerebral cortex. Most DHA is found in almost exclusively in animal foods, such as seafood, pasture-raised meat and some dairy products.
What is EPA?
Like DHA, Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) is also a long chain n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA), and a precursor to DHA. EPA has numerous antiatherosclerotic effects including vasodilation, antiplatelet aggregation, and anti-inflammation.
How do omega 3's benefit children?
The Body can only make very small amounts of DHA from other fatty acids, so it is essential to consume it, along with EPA, directly from foods or from a supplement like Minami Nutrition DHA + EPA for Kids Liquid. These essential fats are especially important for kids, as play a role in their neurological and visual development.
Other research suggest that DHA/EPA supplements may help to treat particular health complications in children, such asthma, allergies and ADHD.
