Neurological deficiencies are associated with premature birth and early loss of DHA supply

 

Premature infants who have lost the rich placental supply of DHA early, have been shown to be at a greater risk for neurological deficits, such as learning disabilities, social/behavioral problems and significantly lower scores on IQ tests.

 

The rapidly growing infant brain needs DHA supplementation

The rate of brain growth in the perinatal period is so rapid that the baby's capacity to synthesize DHA from an essential fatty acid precursor (currently present in some infant formulas) is insufficient to keep up with the demand of the growing brain and nervous system. Studies have shown that unless pre-formed DHA supplementation is provided to formula-fed infants, their brain DHA levels are significantly lower than levels in breast-fed infants.
