Influence d’une supplémentation en omégas 3 au cours de la grossesse

Abstract : Maternal nutrition is a major environmental factor, which can be modified and can affect fetal growth and development with potential long-term consequences. There is currently a strong mediatic pressure for supplementing diets with omega 3 fatty acids. Nevertheless, if beneficial effects seem to be confirmed in adults and in animal models, the evidence for favourable effects of omega 3 supplementation in pregnant women are less obvious. Indeed, there is a trend showing a positive effect on cerebral development, but long term effects have not been demonstrated and both the quantity of omega 3 and the omega 3:omega 6 ratios are not precisely determined. Numerous studies are needed, both in pregnant animal models and in patients, to unravel these effects.
