Our Pregnancy Question of the Month is "
What Has DHA?
" - First off, What
DHA? More specifically, What
"Prenatal DHA"? Prenatal DHA is a dietary supplement that goes along with your normal prenatal vitamins. It helps babies brain development. Studies show most women don't get enough Omega-3 Fatty Acids in their normal diet. That's why it's important to
supplement 300 milligrams of dha daily
. Specifically, DHA is Docosahexaenoic acid. It's an Omega-3 Fatty Acid that's critical to
ensure proper brain development during pregnancy
What has DHA? Mostly Fatty Fish or Algae Oil Supplements.
We specifically recommend pregnant women
begin supplementing months of professional supplements
as soon as possible, even before conception if that's an option. If vegetarian or vegan, use an algae oil with high DHA content.
