Why do I need DHA during pregnancy? Follow
DHA is a healthy Omega-3 fatty acid that is essential for the growth and development of your baby’s brain, immune system, eyes and nervous system.
According to the National Institutes of Health, it is recommended that pregnant women consume 1,400 mg and breastfeeding women consume 1,300 mg of Omega-3s daily. DHA is mainly found in fish and other seafood, although our bodies can create a small amount from plant sources.
In addition to supplementation, some food options that are rich in Omega-3s are:
- Fatty Fish and other seafood(such as cold-water fish like salmon, mackerel, tuna,sardines, and herring)
- Seaweed and Algae
- Nuts and Seeds (such as flaxseeds, hemp seeds, chia seeds, and walnuts)
- Omega-3 Fortified Foods (such as yogurt, eggs, milk products, healthy oils)
