DHA Linked to Brain Damage Reduction in Infant Stroke

DHA reduces brain damage in infant stroke patients

 

Researchers at Columbia University and other pediatric and neuroscience research centers collaborated to study the effect of administering DHA-containing tryclycerides to neonatal mice with hypoxia/ischemia brain injury. The type of study they performed using mice has often been used as a model for human neonatal stroke. DHA may benefit healthy infants, as well. New research suggests infants fed formula enriched with DHA from birth to 12 months scored better on measures of intelligence at ages three to six. Research also suggests DHA may help in cases of traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury and peripheral nerve damage.
