Health Notes

DHA

DHA
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Stress
Dose: 1.5 to 1.8 grams daily
Supplementing with omega-3 fatty acids, including DHA, may help improve responses to stress.(more)
Breast-Feeding Support
Dose: Consult a qualified healthcare practitioner
Studies have shown that higher breast milk concentrations of DHA (an omega-3 fatty acid present in cod liver oil) are associated with better visual acuity in infants.(more)
Childhood Intelligence
Dose: Refer to label instructions
(more)
Stress
Dose: 1.5 to 1.8 grams daily

Animal and human studies suggest that deficiencies of omega-3 fatty acids may contribute to behaviors associated with unhealthy responses to stress.1, 2 A double-blind study of students with a low dietary intake of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid) reported that taking 1.5 to 1.8 grams of DHA per day for three months prevented an increase in aggressiveness in these students during a stressful final exam period.3 This group of researchers reported in another double-blind study that 1.5 grams per day of DHA given to medical students during a stressful exam period resulted in changes in some, though not all, blood measurements indicating improved responses to stress.4

Breast-Feeding Support
Dose: Consult a qualified healthcare practitioner

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), an omega-3 fatty acid present in cod liver oil and other fish oils, is important for normal development of the brain and eyes. Studies have shown that higher concentrations of DHA in mothers' milk are associated with better visual acuity in the infants.1 Other studies have suggested that DHA improves the development of infants, although not all research agrees.2 Because DHA in the mother's diet passes into the breast milk,3 some doctors advise nursing mothers to supplement their diet with cod liver oil or another fish-oil supplement. Women wishing to use this or any supplement while breast-feeding should consult their doctors and use only under the supervision of a qualified healthcare practitioner.

Childhood Intelligence
Dose: Refer to label instructionsDocosahexaenoic acid (DHA) plays an important role in the development of the fetal and infant brain. In a double-blind trial, pregnant women received 10 ml per day of cod liver oil (providing daily 1,183 mg per day of DHA) or a placebo (corn oil), beginning in week 18 of pregnancy and continuing until 3 months after delivery. All or nearly all of the children were breastfed at least until 3 months of age. Compared with the placebo group, the group receiving cod liver oil had significantly better scores at 4 years of age on a test that measures intelligence (the Mental Processing Composite of the Kaufman Assessment Battery for Children).1

            I tried many Omega for my kids. This is the only one they'll take without spitting it out or crying. Brand is great and free of Hg. They take it every day, I give it to them for their immune system, brain, and eye development. Every parent should give this to their kids.

                Comments about Nordic Naturals® Children's DHA:

                I don't know how I am suppose to start seeing the difference. I started on DHA for the brain and eyes, he's a toddler, so eye are all good right now. As for Brain he's progressing like any other child, but one thing I have noticed, he picks (understands/says)everything after three or four time of repetition. But than again doesn't every kids at 18 months? I was concerned about this teeth, but they are taking their time coming out, I thought with this and daily multi-vitamin, it would happen faster, but no luck.

                my son loves the flavor and looks forward to getting it. It's very sticky, and thick, my son needs a glass of water or milk to wash it down.

                I would recommend it but since I don't see any difference in him and any other 18 month, I think he can do without it. It's just my preference I am giving him.
