Relation of KIDS Brain Development and DHA

Did you know studies indicate that the presence of DHA, an omega-3 fatty acid, in brain cell membranes supports efficient communication among brain cells¹, which is the basis for memory and learning!

Did you know a baby is born with billions of neurons, or brain cells. There are 2 main stages of brain development: the development of synapses (connections) and neural transmission (communication)!

Did you know DHA promotes the structural integrity of brain cells, supporting efficient communication between brain cells which is crucial for learning and memory in a child² !
Did you know that children who were breast-fed (average duration was 43 +/- 9 weeks) in the early months of their lives had higher IQ trends at age 4 than those who were on a diet with no DHA and ARA!

Did you know that the brain development of your baby begins as early as 3 weeks after conception!

Did you know that you can stimulate your child's brain development through breastfeeding, music,play and massage!

Did you know that early child brain development is very dependent on human stimulus!
