DHA :: DHA supplement for pregnant and breastfeeding moms

DHA, an omega-3 fatty acid, is received by babies in utero and through breastmilk. It is found in high concentrations in the tissues of the brain and eye. This indicates that DHA helps support the development of your baby?s brain and eyes.

It is especially important for visual and central nervous system development during gestation and the first two years after birth.

The typical American diet contains low levels of DHA compared to many other countries – due to a low dietary intake of foods that are rich in this important nutrient. Supplementing with Expecta LIPIL can help provide the DHA your diet may lack.

Fish and shellfish are an important part of a healthy diet, and fatty fish, such as salmon and tuna, are the most abundant sources of DHA. However, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Food and Drug Administration have advised at risk groups including pregnant and nursing women to reduce their exposure to mercury by avoiding certain fish and by limiting their intake of fish and seafood.
