DHA is one of the most abundant fatty acids in the human brain. Levels of DHA alter during different life stages, with a higher amount of DHA required for childhood brain development. DHA is also needed during the development and maturation of the retina and visual cortex in children, and increases cell membrane fluidity, which influences nerve conduction and transmission.
Children require an optimal intake of micro-nutrients as they grow and develop, however many children do not even consume the recommended daily intake (RDI) of vitamins and minerals. Micro-nutrients are essential for healthy brain and nervous system development, therefore if nutritional requirements are not met during these critical stages, the overall growth of the brain may be adversely affected. Nutritional deficiencies that have been shown to interfere with neuro-development and cognition in children include vitamins B6, B12 and D, along with the minerals zinc, iodine, selenium, folate, iron and magnesium.
