– High Purity Omega-3 capsule
Each capsule provides 300mg DHA, the level recommended by international experts for mums during lactation*.
Maternal intake of DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) contributes to the normal brain and eye development of breast-fed infants**. Infants have limited capability to synthesize fatty acids, which therefore must be obtained direct from external sources such as the mother’s milk.
During breast-feeding, the infant’s brain continues to take up DHA and 15% of brain growth occurs after birth.
Contains the purest pharmaceutical grade fish oil, certified for sustainability by Friend of the Sea.
Journal of the American College of Nutrition, Vol. 18, No. 5, 487-489 (1999)
A beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 200mg DHA in addition to the recommended daily intake of omega-3 fatty acids for adults.
