docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is the most biologically active omega-3 fatty acid.DHA have been shown to have multiple beneficial effects, including improving childhood development when ingested during pregnancy.
Fetal brain growth accelerates during the second half of pregnancy, and the rate of growth remains high during the first year of life with continued growth for the next several years. It is likely that, during pregnancy, omega-3 requirements increase over normal to support fetal growth, particularly of the brain and eyes.
Deprivation of omega-3 fatty acids during pregnancy is associated with visual and behavioral deficits that cannot be reversed with postnatal supplementation. For these reasons, it is important for omega-3 fatty acids to be supplied to the fetus in adequate amounts throughout pregnancy. To optimize pregnancy outcomes and fetal health, consensus guidelines have recommended that pregnant women consume at least 200 mg of DHA per day.
Folate (vitamin B9) is an essential nutrient that is required for DNA replication and as a substrate for a range of enzymatic reactions involved in amino acid synthesis and vitamin metabolism. Demands for folate increase during pregnancy because it is also required for growth and development of the fetus. Folate deficiency has been associated with abnormalities in both mothers (anemia, peripheral neuropathy) and fetuses (congenital abnormalities).
