- DHA & ARA Fatty Acid Supplement
- The Leader in Organic Medical Nutrition
- DHA & ARA Fatty Acid with No Hexane Processing
- DHA & ARA Fatty Acids are Present in Breast Milk
DHA & ARA Fatty Acids for Brain Development & Visual Acuity
Baby Only Essentials is properly balanced with the long chain fatty acids, DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and ARA (arachidonic acid) important for development. These fats are known to concentrate in a baby's brain & eye retina promoting mental development and visual acuity. If breast milk is not available, then a baby requires a dietary source of these fats by synthesizing them from linoleic & alpha-linoleic fatty acids, as found in Baby's Only Organic Formulas, and/or by supplementing with Baby's Only Essentials DHA & ARA Fatty Acids.†
†For an infant receiving breast milk as its single-source of nutrition, it may not be necessary to provide supplemental DHA & ARA.
Baby Only Essentials DHA & ARA Fatty Acid is naturally derived from the goodness of Egg Phospholipids using an aqueous (water) process. This differs from life's DHA treated with hexane solvent, acid, and bleach; this ingredients is included in most organic and conventional infant formulas.
The use of egg phospholipids in human nutrition, especially infant nutrition, has been widely studied. It is well understood that phospholipids form smaller droplets in the intestinal tract, are more easily absorbed and offer greater bio-availability than DHA from algal and fish oil.¹
Benefits of Choosing Baby's Only Essentials DHA & ARA
- DHA is 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 after birth.
- Study concludes egg phospholipid is more bio-available than other sources studied (fish oil & algal oil)¹, Because it is more easily used by the body, less egg phospholipid must be consumed 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.
- Contains Choline, an important nutrient needed for the production of neurotransmitters and development of the memory center in the brain, impacting long-term memory.
- Individual packets make it possible for healthcare professionals to recommend specific dosing.
