60% of the brain is made from and runs on fats and oils, most of which are one single fatty acid DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). (Schmidt, M et al 97). So, the most important and prevalent nutrient that the brain requires to grow properly and to function properly is DHA, which is found in Omega 3 oils.

One study, J.Pediatrics, Jan, 2003, showed that when mothers supplemented their diet with Omega 3 DHA, during pregnancy and also while nursing their baby, that it increased the child’s IQ.

  • Cod Liver Oil has been given to children for centuries for brain development and immune support.  It is the world’s first dietary supplement.
  • Cod Liver Oil has more DHA (for brain support) than any other food source, plus it contains Vitamin A (to help healthy eye development) and Vitamin D (to help bone development).
  • These are both Omega 3 oils, and are both widely available in the health supplement market.
  • The primary difference is that Cod Liver Oil contains DHA already (which is easily and readily absorbed and utilized by our bodies). The Flaxseed Omega 3 oils need to be taken into our bodies and then converted into DHA (this conversion requires other nutrients like Vitamin B3, magnesium and zinc).  Depending on a child’s body, sometimes flaxseed oil may or may not be converted into DHA.
