Pregnancy and breast feeding

The consumption of these acids is by far more important in pregnant and breast feeding women. During pregnancy, the mother transfers her reserves of fatty acids to the fetus for its brain to form, thus giving rise to cases of post-partum depression due to diminished levels of these acids in her body.

Post-partum depression is effectively treated by supplementing the diet, during pregnancy, with foods rich in fatty acids. The advantage of this type of treatment is that, along with being antidepressants, the fatty acids are completely harmless, causing no side effects, and moreover, allow the proper development of the brain in the fetus during pregnancy.

Mental health

One important beneficial impact is in the area of mental health since it has been shown that their consumption helps in the treatment of different psychiatric and neurological disorders. It is very effective in the fight against depression and other nervous system conditions.

It has even been demonstrated that introducing these acids in a student’s diet noticeably increases their scholastic performance.
