Objectives: Maternal intake of n-3 long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFAs) has positive effects on fetal development and pregnancy outcomes. Leptin plays an important role in placental transportion of LC-PUFAs. ...
The effects of maternal omega-3 fatty acid supplementation on breast milk fatty acid composition
(İstanbul Medipol University, 2018)
Breast milk is the first source of omega-3 fatty acids (FA) for infants. We hypothesized that maternal omega-3 FAs supplementation affects the FA composition of breast milk. Thirtysix women received 950 mg omega-3 ...
Supplementation of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) / Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) in a ratio of 1/1.3 during the last trimester of pregnancy results in EPA accumulation in cord blood
Omega-3 fatty acids (n-3 FA), specifically DHA, are associated with fetal growth and development. We aimed to determine the levels of DHA and EPA in cord serum after n-3 FA supplementation during the last trimester of ...
