The best start for your baby

During pregnancy, your baby is totally reliant on what you eat as his or her only source of nourishment. So even with a good diet, extra specific nutrients can be important.

Mums, even in Western developed countries, are often deficient in vitamins and minerals. Normal brain and eye development of the foetus as well as the much needed Vitamin A, folic acid and other nutrients, it is extremely important for the normal development of the brain and eyes of the foetus that the mum-to-be receives adequate amounts of the fatty acid DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid).

DHA and EPA are found naturally in fish oil and KrillOil. DHA is the main fatty acid in the central nervous system, and is found in the structural walls of brain cells.

The brain of the foetus is made up of 60% fats, of which an amazing 40% is DHA. Particularly during the last trimester of pregnancy and the first few months after birth, the baby has a much increased requirement for DHA.

DHA is found in even greater concentrations in the retina, where it contributes up to 60% of the fatty acid content. Research has shown that when the growing baby receives DHA from the 3rd trimester onwards and during breastfeeding, circulating levels of DHA are higher, which can help contribute to normal healthy eye development and visual clarity.
