DHA Pediaburst was specifically designed to support cognitive health in children with a higher concentration of DHA than EPA. As the most abundant omega-3 fatty acid in the brain, DHA helps support membrane fluidity, neuronal signalling and neuron health, and may provide additional cognitive benefit by increasing cerebral blood flow.1,2 It is critical for proper brain and retinal development during the final trimester of pregnancy and early childhood, and has demonstrated cognitive health benefits in children, including improved reading ability in underperforming children.1,3 DHA supplementation has also been shown to increase erythrocyte DHA levels, which is associated with improved literacy and behavioural outcomes in children.4-7 DHA Pediaburst features exceptionally pure fish oil in the triglyceride form, which has demonstrated greater bioavailability than ethyl esters in clinical research.8,9 Ideal for those who dislike swallowing capsules, this easy-to-chew and great-tasting formula supplies the DHA that children need for healthy brain development.
