A small study by University of Western Australia's School of Pediatrics and Child Health to prove his usefulness, as many as 98 pregnant women were asked to consume supplements containing 4 grams of fish oil every day since the age of 20 weeks gestation. After their children aged 2.5 years, 75 of whom were tested in the field of language skills, practical understanding, as well as hand and eye coordination. It turns out that children score better than children's peers whose mothers did not consume fish oil.

There are three types of fatty acids in fish oil, ie unsaturated fatty acids (no double bonds in its carbon chain), such as palmitic, monounsaturated fatty acids (a single double bond on carbon chain), for example oleic, and unsaturated fatty acids double (have more than one double bond in its carbon chain), for example, linoleic, linolenic, eikosapentanoat acid (EPA), and dokosaheksanoat acid (DHA). The longer the carbon chain on a type of fatty acid and a growing number of double bonds in carbon chain composition, the fatty acids it will be more "rich" health benefits.
Polyunsaturated fatty acids (polyunsaturated fatty acids / PUFAs) in fish oil will help the process for growing up the brain (intelligence), and the development of the sense of vision and the immune system of infants and toddlers. The most popular types of PUFA is DHA and EPA, which when combined are known as omega-3. Types of fish that "rich" in omega-3 include salmon, tuna (especially bluefin tuna, yellow fin tuna, and albacore), sardines, herring, mackerel, and shellfish.
