Q1: Why is DHA important for brain development?
- DHA, a long chain omega-3 fatty acid is a major lipid in the brain, especially at the frontal lobes (consists about 15%). The frontal lobes are known to control important cognitive functions that responsible for cognitive activities such as planning, problem solving and focused attention; which corresponding to social, emotional and behavioral development. Frontal lobes development may begin as early as 6 months of age, growth rapidly at age of 2, and continue to develop throughout childhood and adolescence. Therefore, it is essential for the children to include sufficient DHA in their daily diet to support optimal brain development.
