Baby's Only Essentials DHA & ARA Fatty Acid Powder - 30 ct
DHA & ARA Fatty Acids are known to concentrate in a fetus' developing brain and eye retina at a rate that increases as the pregnancy progresses. This accumulation of DHA & ARA in the brain and retina continues even after birth.
Baby's Only DHA & ARA source of fatty acids is from the natural goodness of egg-yolk phospholipids. This differs from other vegetarian sources, which are derived from a non-toxigenic soil fungus or microalgae. A recent study concluded that egg phospholipid was more bio-available than other sources used in the study (fish oil and algal oil). Because it was more easily incorporated into the body, less egg-phospholipid had to be consumed in order to achieve the desired effect.
Nature's One provides the only source of DHA & ARA containing cholesterol also present in breast milk and believed to assist in normal cholesterol production as the baby matures. Baby's Only Essentials DHA & ARA is not extracted using harsh hexane chemicals. Instead, Nature's One uses a gentle and natural aqueous (water) process.
Individual packets make it possible for healthcare professionals to recommend specific dosing of DHA & ARA.
