DHA for brain growth and development

DHA is a vital fatty acid in the brain and it is a primary structural component of brain tissue, which plays a role in effective communication between brain cells. DHA is one of the nutrients that are building blocks of the brain; it helps build the brain and keep brain cells flexible. DHA is essential for brain growth and development, as well as brain function. DHA together with other nutrients such as Vitamin B, Iron, Zinc and Iodine help support your child’s overall development in key development areas, such as cognitive, motor, emotional and communication skills. These key development areas help contribute to your child’s overall continuous learning.
