DHA Omega-3

Brain Health

Learn more

DHA Omega-3 is in the Omega-3 fatty acid
and it supports brain and eye health.
Our bodies can produce
a small amount of omega-3 fatty acids but not enough to meet
our needs, meaning we have to get
most of them from what we eat and drink.

Every 8-ounce glass of Growing YearsTM milk
has 50mg of DHA Omega-3.

DHA is found in most human body tissues, with
the highest amounts in the brain, nervous system
and retina of the eye.1 In the brain, DHA is
involved in with neuronal signaling. In the eye,
DHA is necessary to maintain good vision.2 DHA
Omega-3 is recognized by doctors and
nutritionists as an important part of a healthy diet.


Helps Transport
DHA in the Body

Get 55 mg of choline in each 8-ounce glass
of Growing YearsTM milk.

According to the Institute of Medicine,
choline is an essential nutrient, and
that’s why we’ve added VitaCholine™ to our
milk. Although our bodies make some
choline, our diets supply the majority.

Choline has an Adequate Intake recommendation
set by the Food and Nutrition Board of the
Institute of Medicine. Choline aids in the transport
and synthesis of lipids (or fats), and it helps
transport DHA throughout the body. It’s like a
DHA delivery truck.
