PUFA-supplementen geven geen verbeteringen van de visuele en de neurologische ontwikkeling bij foetus

Research Question:
The use of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) during pregnancy is beneficial for both the Visual and neurological development of the fetus. However, there is still no systematic review article run.

Let PUFA supplements during pregnancy and the improvements of Visual neurological fetal development see?

Study Design:
This overview article contained 3 Rcts with Visual development as an outcome and 6 Rcts with neurological development as an outcome. Due to diverse expression of results in the infant, the studies could not be combined to a formal meta-analysis.

Results and conclusions:
Most studies could not prove that PUFA supplements in infants gave sustainable benefits in the area of cognitive and Visual development.

The researchers concluded that, at present, scientific evidence was lacking to PUFA supplements recommended to improve the Visual and neurological development in fetus. However, it is important to eat a healthy diet with sufficient PUFA.
