Pregnancy


It is now an absolute and undeniable fact that omega-3 fatty acids are required nutrients for a healthy pregnancy and baby.

It is also a fact that the human body does not make enough omega-3 fatty acids to meet our nutritional needs during pregnancy and therefore must be obtained from the diet.

The omega-3 fatty acid DHA is particularly important to developing children and to pregnant and lactating women. A woman's demand for DHA increases substantially during pregnancy and will remain low for 9-12 months after delivery unless the diet is supplemented.

A very common dilemma faced is that: Both the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have sounded the alarm regarding the potential dangers of consuming too much fish because of environmental toxins that accumulate in fish.

Hence, if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, studies have compared levels of mercury and pesticides in fish versus fish oil supplements and concluded fish oil provide the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids without the risk of toxicity.

International experts agree that a minimum of 300 mg of DHA is necessary to meet the needs of pregnant and lactating women. So if you are avoiding fish because of fear of environmental contaminants, you may be doing your baby more harm than good. Hence, adding a high-quality fish oil supplement to your daily habits is the better option of supplying your offspring with the nutrients they need without the chance of exposing them to unnecessary toxins.
