Omega 3s in Pregnant Moms Reduce Childhood Obesity

Omega 3s in Pregnant Moms Reduce Childhood Obesity
Posted on May 17, 2011 by Justin .
According to new research from Harvard Medical School, pregnant mothers who get an adequate intake of omega-3 fatty acids may lower the risk of childhood obesity by 32 percent.
The study examined the relationship between the type of fat a mother consumed at mid-pregnancy and whether her child was obese at age 3, determined by body mass index (BMI) and skinfold measurements.  The researchers reported that enhanced omega-3 status in mother and fetus was associated with lower childhood obesity. Consuming Omega-3 fatty acids (especially EPA and DHA) is associated with several health benefits, including improving of fat metabolism, preventing heart disease, and reducing inflammation. In addition, omega-3s reduce fat levels in animals fed a high-fat diet. The researchers reported that even though around one fifth of the expectant mothers ate more than 2 fish meals per week at mid-pregnancy, only about half of these women achieved the recommend intake of DHA of 200 mg per day. Only three percent of pregnant women in the study were found to consume the recommended intake of 200 mg/day of DHA in the last month of pregnancy.  (The last month of pregnancy is when large amounts of DHA are transferred from the mother to the infant to support brain development.)
 One safe way to get plenty of Omega 3s is to take a high quality fish oil supplement.  Dr Amen recommend a daily dose to almost everyone for brain and heart health.  One of our products is Omega 3 Power.  We also have an Omega 3 Formula specifically for children and teens with ADD.

No doubt Omega-3 fatty acids are considered essential fatty acids. We need them for our bodies to work normally. Because essential fatty acids (ALA, DHA, EPA) are not made in the body or are inefficiently converted from ALA to EPA and DHA, we need to get them from our diet

Childhood obesity is really very awful situation not only for the child but also for the parent so it is the preference of every Mom to have a child which is normal. The effects of childhood obesity are very severe and some times cause very bad results. Your recommendations for the pregnant women are very great for taking the Omega 3s will definitely reduce the childhood obesity effects.

A standard screen of such a size would have been costly to run. But the screen on the Aspire Tower uses energy-saving LED technology. It also produces images of outstanding quality.

Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Firefox. I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Cheers
