DHA, found in fish oil, is the primary building block of the brain so we can see why it is so important in pregnancy to ensure your developing baby has the building blocks they need for a healthy brain, eyes and nervous system.
Pure DHA for baby's brain and eye development.
A vegetarian alternative to fish oil. To gain extra DHA while pregnant, spirulina is also recommended for vegetarians to take during this time.
Oily fish such as tuna and salmon are a rich source of omega-3. However, to get your daily requirement of omega-3 in meals, the fish must be consumed raw (sashimi style) as essential fatty acids are destroyed through heat.
Flaxseeds are a source of omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids. The oil can be drizzled on salads, added to cooled porridge and smoothies or taken straight off the spoon as a daily supplement.
Check omega-3 products to see if they have been tested for mercury levels as deep sea fish often store mercury. All good quality products should be tested on a regular basis or have been molecularly distilled to remove any heavy metals. Rebalance only recommends quality products!
