A minimum daily intake of 300 mg DHA after birth can provide levels of DHA in the breast milk of approximately 0.35% of total milk fat. This corresponds to the levels present in infant formula's containing DHA approved by the Food and Drug Administration for new and growing infants.
300 mg DHA is the minimum levels associated with significantly improved brain development in the nursing child, compared to infants given formula lacking DHA.
Adding both DHA and ARA when supplementing infant formulas with long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids supports visual and cognitive development through 39 months, based on study titled; Visual, cognitive, and language assessments at 39 months: a follow-up study of children fed formulas containing long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids to 1 year of age.
