Prenatal omega-3 fatty acid supplementation has been found to reduce the incidence of inflammatory-related diseases in children up to 12 years of age. The study, published in the British Journal of Nutrition, concludes that pregnant women may help their unborn children lead better, healthier lives once they are born by simply increasing their intake of omega-3 whilst carrying.
This study adds to the growing amount of literature that suggests the many beneficial effects of omega-3 fatty acid supplementation.
