  DHA, the scientific name docosahexaenoic acid, is a long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acid of type n-3, which is a kind of polyunsaturated fatty acid (also known as brain gold). DHA is the most abundant retinal photoreceptor. Polyunsaturated fatty acids are essential nutrients for maintaining the normal function of rhodopsin. They are mainly found in the brain's phospholipids. If the intake is insufficient, the baby's brain development process will be delayed or blocked. DHA is an indispensable substance for maintaining, improving, and improving brain function. Since the human body cannot synthesize DHA by itself, it must be supplied through food.
  ARA (also known as AA), the scientific name arachidonic acid, is an n-6 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acid, although it can be derived from linoleic acid in humans, but when the amount is insufficient, especially in In infants and young children, the amount of synthesis in the body is often insufficient, so it must also be supplied by food; it has been classified as a semi-essential fatty acid in the past. ARA has a series of physiological activities that help brain development, improve visual acuity, esterify cholesterol, increase blood vessel elasticity, lower blood viscosity, and improve immunity. The lack of ARA may have serious adverse effects on the development of human tissues and organs, especially the development of the brain and nervous system.
The best time to supplement DHA and ARA
  0-2 years old is the rapid proliferating period of brain cells, and the development of brain cells directly affects the baby's intellectual development. Essential unsaturated fatty acids DHA and ARA are the important material basis for the nervous system, especially the physiological activities of the brain. The timely and sufficient supplementation of DHA and ARA can promote brain development, improve brain metabolism, and promote the transmission of information in the nervous system. Vision, improve calcium metabolism, and effectively promote brain development. If the lack of DHA and ARA in infancy will lead to small head circumference, IQ, low vision, apathy, comprehension, reading ability, writing ability and learning ability are seriously insufficient.
  Scientific research has confirmed that the deficiency of DHA and ARA is irreversible to the mental and visual development of infants and young children. Even if the baby's nutritional status is improved in the future, physical development can catch up with normal levels, and intellectual defects are difficult to fully compensate. Therefore, the brain nutrition supply of the baby within 2 years old is very important.
