When It Comes To Prenatal And Lactation Supplements, DHA Is An Essential

Building your baby’s body is an incredible feat. You need every single good nutrient you can get. For this reason, many new moms add prenatal and lactation supplements to their diet. It just makes sense.

And when it comes to amping up your nutrition for pregnancy and breastfeeding, Omega-3s are a must. Particularly the Omega-3 known as DHA. DHA is essential for healthy fetal and newborn brain and eye development.* While your baby needs this nutrient throughout your pregnancy, the importance ramps up in the third trimester and after birth.

Looking for some concentrated Omega-3s to include in your prenatal and lactation supplements? Our Ultra-Concentrated Omega-3 gives you a great foundation. Then build on it with some extra DHA for your growing baby from our DHA 600. And if you need extra help keeping your mood steady, you can add more EPA with EPA 500.*

I started taking DHA supplements while I was pregnant. I’m also taking them now while I’m breastfeeding. I can’t say enough about how happy I was to find these DHA supplements. Before I used to take another brand and I had to take 3 pills to get the same amount of DHA in just one of these pills. Even though the pills are about the same size!! I love that there’s no fishy burps. And your website is my go-to source for nutrition info especially when it comes to Omega-3s.*

I am loving Omegavia so far. I have been aware of the benefits of DHA during pregnancy throughout my pregnancy and was taking a highly recommended Fish Oil that had much higher EPA than DHA. It wasn’t until my 6th or 7th month that I found your product and began taking it and have gathered a lot more information about EPA and DHA.*

Why I Don’t Take Multivitamins

Multis are gateway supplements. They’re often the first step in people’s health enlightenment. Along with a gym membership, maybe. Or a pedometer. But there are a lot of people for whom a multivitamin is it. No other supplements, diet change or exercise. That’s all they’re willing to do. They couldn’t quit smoking, so they’ll takeRead More

How to Reduce Omega-6

Omega-6 is the villain around these parts. Why? Because excess Omega-6 can lead to inflammation.   It’s not as black and white as ‘Omega-3 good; Omega-6 baaad!‘ That’s an over-simplified view of a blog focused on the wonders of Omega-3. Health matters are never that simple. Inflammation, after all, is a natural repair process. ExcessRead More
