DHA is important for healthy visual and mental development throughout infancy, yet developing infants cannot produce optimal levels of DHA on their own; Rapid brain growth occurs during the second half of pregnancy and continues throughout the first years of life. Infants have the greatest need for DHA during this time; Some studies suggest that increasing dietary intake of DHA during pregnancy and beyond may help to support a mother's emotional well- being after birth. Clinical studies have shown that taking 200mg of DHA during pregnancy and while nursing a child can provide significant benefits for improving the development of brain and eye function. In fact, many doctors specifically recommend that pregnant women and nursing mothers take a multivitamin and consume 200mg of DHA per day to help their baby develop during these important times.
