healthbrief Prenatal Omega-3 Reduces Kids’ Asthma Risk


R


esearchers from the Copenhagen University Hospital, in Denmark,


discovered expectant mothers that take omega-3 supplements while pregnant reduce the risk that their babies will develop asthma. Analyzing blood samples


from 695 Danish women at 24 weeks of gestation and again one week after birth, the study tested the levels of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and


docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)—long-


chain omega-3 fatty acids found in fish, fish oil and DHA-algae supplements— in the women’s blood. The health of the babies was monitored for five years and compared with


the blood analysis. The children of the mothers given 2.4 grams of long-chain omega-3 supplements during their third trimester displayed an overall 31 percent reduced risk of developing asthma. “Asthma and wheezing disorders have more than doubled


in Western countries in recent decades,” explains Professor Hans Bisgaard, of the Copenhagen Prospective Studies on Asthma in Childhood at the hospital. “We now have a preventative measure to help bring those numbers down.”


A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to


create, nurture and transform. — DIANE MARIECHILD
