The two most well-researched omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) are docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). DHA forms essential structural components within the central nervous system, while EPA plays important roles in supporting a healthy cardiovascular system. DHA is the most abundant structural fatty acid in the eyes, brain and central nervous system and plays important roles in their normal development.
DHA also plays vital roles in fetal and infant eye, brain, and cognitive health and development. During pregnancy, DHA is transferred from mother to fetus, especially during the last trimester, and after birth via breast milk. DHA-supplemented and breastfed infants score significantly higher on mental, psychomotor, visual, developmental, vocabulary, and IQ tests later in life.
