Fatty Acids for Brain Development & Visual Acuity
Baby Only Essentials is properly balanced with the long chain fatty acids, DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and ARA (arachidonic acid), important for development. These fats are known to concentrate in a baby's brain & eye retina promoting mental development and visual acuity. If breast milk is not available, then a baby requires a dietary source of these fats by synthesizing them from linoleic & alpha-linoleic fatty acids, as found in Baby's Only Organic Toddler Formulas, and/or by supplementing with Baby's Only Essentials DHA & ARA Fatty Acids.†
†For an infant receiving breast milk as its single-source of nutrition, it may not be necessary to provide supplemental DHA & ARA.
Baby Only Essentials DHA & ARA Fatty Acid is naturally derived from the goodness of Egg Phospholipids using an aqueous (water) process. This differs from C. cohnii oil (algae) & M. alpina oil (fungus) used in infant formulas, which are treated with hexane solvent, acid and bleach.
Choline is an essential nutrient found in Baby's Only Essentials fatty acids. Choline is necessary for the structure and function of all cells in the body. Choline is also an important nutrient needed for the production of neurotransmitters and development of the memory center in the brain, impacting long-term memory.
