Abstract The clinical review of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFAs) is conducted with a focus on their crucial role in psychoneurocognitive development and health, and atopy. The review suggests that omega-3 fatty-acid intakes might promote full-term pregnancies, protect against preeclampsia, improve cognitive development and IQ scores, and reduce allergy incidence in offspring.
