Default Fish Oil and Pregnancy Study

Fish Oil Supplementation Improves Baby's Hand-Eye Coordination

Better hand-eye coordination scores were significantly correlated with higher levels of two kinds of n-3 fatty acids--eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)-- in cord blood erythrocytes (P=0.007 and P=0.009, respectively). Adjusting for maternal age and education and breast feeding duration did not alter the associations.
Only those that ate 2 or fewer servings of fish per week were included in the study. Interesting finding nonetheless.
