Martek, March of Dimes Partner to Promote Importance of DHA
Date:4/1/2009

multivitamin or supplement containing at least 200 milligrams of DHA are good choices.

More information on the health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids for moms and babies can be found at http://www.marchofdimes.com/pnhec/159_55030.asp

The new March of Dimes awareness effort is supported by a three-year agreement with Martek Biosciences Corporation.

"We're pleased to support the March of Dimes in their efforts to raise awareness of DHA-omega-3 fatty acids as part of a program to support healthy pregnancies and healthy babies," said Steve Dubin, Martek CEO.

The March of Dimes is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. Its mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. For the latest resources and information, visit marchofdimes.com or nacersano.org.

DHA omega-3 is a long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acid that serves as a primary building block for the brain and eyes and supports brain, eye and cardiovascular health throughout life. Studies have shown that increased availability of DHA omega-3 during pregnancy and lactation nourishes the neurological, visual and nervous system development of babies and may play an important role in long-term infant heart health and maternal well-being. Yet despite its importance, Americans have among the lowest dietary intakes of DHA omega-3 in the world. Additionally, expert bodies such as the FDA have advised pregnant and nursing women to limit their consumption of certain fatty fish that are a major dietary source of DHA, due to the potentially high levels of contaminants such as mercury found in such fish.
