Omega-3 oils are essential to the development of an infant’s brain and central nervous system. Infants rely on breast milk as a source of DHA, but most women don’t get enough in their diets, making supplementation an excellent option. Prenatal Omega-3 DHA is molecularly distilled for purity, and available in softgel or liquid form.
Omega-3 oils are incredibly beneficial to mothers and infants. They are essential to developing the brain, as well as the central nervous system and the retina. However, DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid that the human body cannot manufacture.Read More

Is essential for brain and retina development
Helps to maintain healthy bones and optimize the baby’s development.
During your pregnancy, polyunsaturated fatty acids are incorporated into fetal tissues including the brain and retina. Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), in particular, is needed to support the development and function of the central nervous system.
Concern over fish lowers DHA intake
Recent surveys indicate that globally, pregnant women eat very little fish and therefore do not consume enough omega-3 fatty acids. This is primarily due to their concerns about the adverse effects of mercury and other contaminants on the developing fetus.
A study conducted on pregnant Canadian women found that 90% of participants fell below the suggested amount calculated by Dietary Reference Intake recommendations.*
Improved eye hand coordination and locomotive skills
Clinical trials revealed that higher intakes of DHA from fish or from supplementation resulted in infants with better eye hand coordination and locomotion skills.
Lower preterm delivery and postpartum depression
Studies show an increased risk of preterm delivery and low birth rates in women who are low in DHA. As well, DHA deficiency is linked to an increased risk of postpartum depression.
Increased DHA intake has been linked to improved birth weights, enhanced immunity, and a reduced risk of allergic disease and preterm delivery.
Absorb what you ingest
Your body only uses what it absorbs. Our award-winning Omega Suspension Technology (OST) suspends the ingredients in healthy omega oils to protect the nutrients from losing potency, and enable your body to absorb more, giving you results you can feel.
