High DHA Finest Pure Fish Oil 150 mL by Pharmax has significant anti-inflammatory properties, provides benefits in depressive disorders and improves cognitive function. However, the most notable area of omega-3 supplementation, where there is a distinct advantage of high levels of DHA compared to EPA, is during pregnancy and lactation. The recognized benefits of DHA supplementation include the fetal and neonatal development of brain and nerve tissue in the infant. It also has the potential to prevent post partum depression in the mother.

Keep Out Of Reach Of Children
A large and growing body of scientific evidence indicates that fish oil benefits mental health and brain function in all stages of life. EPA and DHA, the omega–3 essential fatty acids in fish oil, are particularly concentrated in the brain—an organ composed of nearly 60% fat—and the nervous system, where they provide necessary building blocks for healthy cells and tissue. DHA, for example, constitutes 20% of the total fatty acids in the cerebral cortex, the outermost layer of the brain responsible for sophisticate information processing like memory and attention.
Children have the most to gain from these essential fats. From prenatal babies to adolescents, children rely heavily on EPA and DHA for visual, brain and immune system development, and for normal emotional and cognitive function. Much of this has to do with the rapid growth of the brain in childhood. Aside from autism, only about 22% of children get enough essential fats so your child will more than likely benefit by the DHA regardless.
I'd like to take a moment to inform you of a forum you may want to consider: http://www.ch3nutrigenomics.com/phpBB2/index.php
Dr. Amy Yasko has some great information and there are like-minded parents, along with kids, trying to overcome autism. Autism needs to be worked on from the foundation and outward. It is very overwhelming for parents to try and determine what is best for their child if there is no plan. I highly recommend you consider very specific lab testing for your child if you haven't done so already. Also, if you haven't eliminated wheat and dairy from his diet, I HIGHLY encourage you to do so. I wish you the best - and for your child. Autism is reversible under the right care!
