Certain studies have shown that infants who received optimal levels of DHA during gestation exhibited:
- Improved psychomotor development
- Improved mental processing scores at 4 years
Certain studies have also shown that infants fed formula supplemented with DHA and ARA exhibited:
- Improved mental development
- Better visual acuity
- Significantly lower blood pressure at age six which may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease later in life
Preterm infants who were fed DHA and ARA supplemented formula exhibited normal growth in terms of weight, length and head circumference and improved visual and mental development.
