when & why?
Over 60% of the brain is made up of fat and the Omega-3 fatty acid DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) makes up around 10-15% of this. In a 6-month study, 183 children who ate a spread high in omega-3 fatty acids experienced improved verbal learning ability and memory.
Children need vitamin D for bone growth and development. So do babies developing in the womb. Vitamin D helps us absorb calcium. Serious vitamin D deficiency in children can cause rickets, delayed motor development, muscle weakness, aches and pains, and fractures.
Vitamin D also plays a vital role in the immune system, according to Dr. Gaither. What’s more, published research shows that vitamin D blood serum levels of 50 nanograms per milliliter (ng/ml) appears to protect against viral respiratory infection—which is especially important in light of COVID-19.
