The benefits of fish oil. Why is it worth giving to children?

About 10-20 years ago, every second child took fish oil. “Feeding” is a tool, because it is useful, you can call it a special tradition. But now the new generation has refused to use the “goodies.” And, it would seem, almost no one is interested in the benefits of consuming fish oil, until the researchers decided to recall this, calling for the presence of capsules in the diet of children.

And if you look into the distant past, such a storehouse of vitamins was mandatory for admission to every child care facility. And even now, you probably frowned, remembering this specific smell and taste. However, one should not just put them in a distant drawer due to an unpleasant sensation from the “capsules”. After all, the benefits of fish oil are huge and affect the baby’s health.

First screening: ultrasound and blood chemistry

Pregnancy screening is a complex of studies. It includes ultrasound diagnostics (ultrasound) and a biochemical blood test. The first screening allows doctors to get detailed information about the health of the fetus and the expectant mother. The doctor makes all the indicators in a special program. It automatically calculates whether there are opportunities for the development of pathologies and the risks of anomalies. With its help, various developmental anomalies are eliminated, and the physiology of the unborn baby is revealed.

First trimester screening

A study is being conducted between the eleventh and thirteenth weeks of pregnancy. There is no point in conducting it earlier. Most of the data will be non-indicative.

The first screening includes two medical tests – ultrasound and hormone analysis. Continue reading
