Misunderstanding of DHA

Every mother hopes to spend her life protecting her baby, making him smart and healthy, but new mothers with children, more or less, there will always be some mistakes. Just like the spring and autumn, the temperature difference between day and night is big, the mothers will generally take care of the baby's tummy to keep warm, and ignore the neck to keep warm. In fact, the body immunity of these two seasons is weaker gens, such as babies, easy to suffer from respiratory diseases, protect the neck is to protect the concentration camp of the upper respiratory tract.

Do mothers also have misconceptions about DHA, the proverbial "brain gold"?

Misunderstanding a: high level of DHA only concentrate on a "wisdom"?

Authoritative studies have proved that DHA is not only abundant in brain cells and retina, but also contains DHA in immune cells.

A recent clinical study in Europe (Pastor Study) : Observation, nearly 1400 infants that continued feeding contain high levels of DHA in first year a group of baby formula, than feeding does not contain DHA or only contain low levels of DHA another set of baby formula milk powder, the lower rates of bronchiolitis/bronchitis, especially in the baby 5, 7, 9 three months when the difference is more apparent, its incidence fell by half or more.

It was thought that DHA could only help with brain development, but it is also effective in improving respiratory health. But do the benefits of DHA for improving respiratory health stop before the age of 1? Of course not!

The most recent clinical study, published in 2008 by Professor Bates of the United States, found that a group of babies who consumed high levels of DHA had nearly half the risk of developing respiratory infections and general allergic diseases in their first three years of life, compared with a group who did not consume DHA.

High levels of DHA not only help reduce the risk of upper respiratory infections and general allergic diseases, but also do so for up to three years.

It's an amazing find, and with this golden key, the baby's chances of surviving the autumn and winter are greatly improved. With a healthy body, mothers can rest assured to let the baby more contact with the outside world, increase knowledge, promote brain development.

Misunderstanding two: Who says DHA level doesn't matter?

Every mother will do their best to let the baby can have a better future, pay attention to the health of the baby at the same time, the most let the mother worry about the intellectual development of the baby of course.

From the rapid growth of the number of brain cells in the fetal period to the development of the developed "brain Internet" at the age of 6 years, the more than 6 years of time is an extraordinary period of the development of the baby's brain, showing different characteristics in different periods. Scientists believe that a baby's brain growth is "completed in one go", with 80 per cent of the weight of a person's brain at the age of three. The 1,365 days from the fetal period to the age of three are the golden period for brain development. Therefore, if there is a lack of adequate nutrition in the golden period of brain development, later supplementation can only be half the effort. But does the amount of DHA you take affect how well it helps your brain develop? Of course!

American nutritionist Professor Betz's clinical medical research showed that babies fed high levels of DHA formula in infancy had MDI(mental development Index) at 18 months and IQ at 4 years of age that were 7 points higher than those fed without DHA formula.

A recent Austin study found no difference in mental performance between babies fed low levels of DHA and those fed no DHA formula at either age. The amount of the original supplement is insufficient, and no supplement no difference, so much waste acridine.
