Is your growing up child getting DHA for brain development?

MBBS
General Physician, Fatehabad
Is your growing up child getting DHA for brain development?

Your child is growing up and as a mother you leave no stone unturned in making sure your kid is getting every nutrition that he/she needs for overall development. What do you do for it? Like every mother, you focus on healthy and nutritious diet, which is undoubtedly a good thing to do.

But, does diet support your child’s brain development?

The question is - does the diet that you give to your child support his/her brain development? Not necessarily. Because the building block for brain development i.e. DHA, is not present in everyday food that the child consumes like green leafy vegetables, fruits, cereals and milk. DHA-rich foods like Salmon, Tuna fishes are rarely or negligibly consumed by the child. Egg does contain DHA but has very small amount of it which is not enough to fulfill the body’s daily recommended intake of DHA of the child.

Your child is grown up. He/she doesn’t need DHA for brain development?

If you have a notion that during the breastfeeding years, your child had enough DHA through breastmilk and now your child doesn’t need it anymore for brain development, then it is not so. As your child is growing, so is his/her brain and 2-6 years is the age when brain grows to its full size. The 2 to 6-year period is crucial for development of critical brain functions in children.

But why DHA is important for your growing up child?

DHA is very critical for brain’s growth. Critical brain activities like sensory, language and higher cognitive development peak before 6 years of age. It is the period when a child’s concentration, memory and problem-solving abilities develop the most. During this phase, the rapidly growing brain requires DHA and other key nutrients to support achievement of IMEC skills.

IMEC Skills:

  • Intellectual: Involves thoughts processing

  • Motor: Involves body coordination or movement

  • Emotional/social: Involves interaction

  • Communication: Involves language

How to provide DHA to your growing up child?

Because DHA is not available in foods commonly consumed, it is important that it is provided by way of nutritional milk powders such as Enfagrow A+, which has the highest DHA*. Not just Enfagrow A+ has high amount of DHA, it also has other essential nutrients like choline, zinc, iodine, iron, vitamin B and D, protein, calcium, and prebiotics which also support overall development of the child – supports physical growth and immune health, besides brain development. It helps in building concentration, memory and develop problem-solving skills in the child. Available in two flavors, milk and vanilla, it is easy to prepare. Just 2 heaped tablespoons of Enfagrow A+ has to be mixed in warm water, boiled for 5 minutes.

Your growing up child needs sufficient DHA for brain development. Supplement his/her food with DHA-rich nutritional milk, as part of a balanced diet.

For a curious and smarter child, remember food for brain is DHA!

Can Hypertension Lead to Dementia? Find Out!

Dementia is a progressive medical condition in which functioning of the brain declines. It is commonly seen in elderly population and can be of two types - alzheimer's disease (AD) and vascular dementia (VAD). Signs of dementia appear slowly and keep getting worse with time because of the damage caused to brain cells. Some of the signs of dementia are:

  • Loss of control over senses

  • Loss of motor skills like grip, walking or standing straight

  • Disorientation

What is the link between hypertension and dementia?

High blood pressure is a chronic condition, in which blood vessels and arteries are damaged and narrowed. It results in poor blood flow, impacting the functioning of all the organs including that of brain. If your brain doesn’t receive the required amount of oxygen and blood, it results in damage to neurons, brain cells. Gradually these damaged cells start to die. These damaged and dead cells, impact your memory, thinking, language skills and senses, resulting in dementia.

Risk factors for dementia

How can you prevent vascular dementia?

Any damage that happens to brain cells is irreversible and the process can only be delayed, but can’t be reversed. Therefore, a proper treatment can slow the speed of brain damage. Other than the medical treatment, adopting a healthy lifestyle can also help in reducing your risk of developing dementia. Some of the changes that you can consider are:

  • Keeping a check on blood pressure, diabetes and cholesterol levels

  • Eating healthy

  • Daily exercise

  • Not skipping your medications

  • Avoiding smoking

  • Maintaining a healthy weight

Hypertension increases the risk of dementia, but other than that there are many risk factors that can lead to dementia. You should consult your doctor, to check if you are at a risk of developing dementia.

  • Affects the blood flow: Hypertension is the leading reason for damage to the arteries, including lining of the penis. This results in restricted blood flow in pelvic area causing ED.

  • Hormonal imbalance: Other than impacting the blood flow, hypertension is also known to create an hormonal imbalance. It decreases the level of testosterone, a hormone that is responsible for sexual arousal.

Other than high BP, some medicines like thiazide, diuretics and beta-blockers can also cause ED. This is a common side effect of medicines that are used to treat hypertension.

How to reduce the risk of erectile dysfunction?

  • Eating healthy: You should include fruits, green leafy vegetables, and whole grain cereals. It is also important to reduce the amount of salt in your diet, to keep a check on increased BP levels.

  • Maintaining a healthy weight: By maintaining a healthy weight you can reduce the risk of all the complications caused by hypertension

  • Regular exercise: Daily exercise can help in improving the blood flow and avoiding the risk of any further complications

  • Avoid tobacco: Tobacco in any form then no matter if you are smoking or chewing it, can cause damage to blood vessels and increases blood pressure.
