It has been seen in studies that Omega-3 fatty acids play an important role in proper development of the human body throughout life. Eicosapentaenoic acid or EPA and Docosahexaenoic acid or DHA are vital for the development of the brain and visual power. However, most of the modern diets lack the much needed fatty acids and are stuffed with harmful chemicals and vegetable oils that give rise to most of the neurological diseases.

The human body starts to take shape in the mother's womb. At this stage, the brain undergoes the most rapid and drastic changes and developments. It is needless to say that at this point, the fetus completely depends on the mother for the supply of crucial and important fatty acids. If the mother suffers from deficiency in EPA and DHA, her body will be forced to extract these fatty acids from her own neuronal cell membranes and will send them to the developing child in the womb. This forced extraction gives rise to a number of complications in the mother including postpartum depression, hormonal disorders and headaches in post pregnancy days.
