Supports healthy growth and development

Omega 3, in particular DHA, is the structural component of brain cell membranes. It is an important fatty acid needed for the maintenance of healthy heart, brain and eyes. During pregnancy, baby depends on mom's diet to obtain sufficient omega-3 for proper growth and development. Studies show that a mom’s fish consumption has a positive effect on her breast milk DHA level. Thus, supplementing DHA before, during pregnancy and while breastfeeding could improve the level of DHA in breast milk and play an important role in the health of the baby as well as the mom.

Enhances attention and cognitive function

Research on omega-3 early in life has focused on their roles in neurodevelopment. DHA accumulates in high concentrations in the brain gray matter, especially during late pregnancy to about 2 years postnatally. It is a very important nutrient for the human brain during fetal development. Therefore, supplementation of DHA during pregnancy and breastfeeding has a positive effect on the intelligence and cognitive performance in infants and children.

Reduces risk of developing allergies, atopic dermatitis, and respiratory illness

Increasing evidence suggests that taking omega-3 early in life helps to improve respiratory health. Clinical studies on fish oil intake during pregnancy, lactation, and early postnatal years found protective effects of omega-3 supplementation on atopic dermatitis, eczema, and infectious respiratory illnesses in infants and children. In addition, they also found that infants on breast milk with higher omega-3 level have a lower risk of allergic outbreaks later in life.

Alleviates postpartum depression and mood fluctuation

It is very common for many new mothers to experience the “baby blues” moments during the first few weeks after delivery. Symptoms include mood swings, feeling overwhelmed, and depressed. Postpartum depression, a more serious illness accompanied by the feelings of hopelessness, guilt, confusion, has been linked to low levels of DHA. DHA helps to regulate mood by increasing the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that influence mood and sleep. Therefore, DHA is important for the prevention and treatment of postpartum depression.

Stimulates immune factors and responses

DHA supports healthy development and function of the immune system. The nutritional composition of breast milk consist of many immunomodulatory components and nutrients that are beneficial to the growth and maturation of infants' immune system. It helps to reduce the risk of infections, atopic diseases, respiratory illnesses, and allergies.
