MINAMI® MyOmega for mother and baby
It's important to get enough* omega-3 during pregnancy, but its importance is not as widely known as that of vitamin D, calcium and folic acid. During pregnancy and breastfeeding, DHA, an omega-3 fatty acid, can play an important role in your baby's brain and eye development*. Your baby gets the DHA supply from you.
At MINAMI® MyOmega we believe in optimal well-being for you and your child at all stages of your pregnancy, from preconception, to pregnancy and during breastfeeding.
During this period it is important to understand your DHA levels. That is why we have developed two MINAMI® MyOmega test kits with which you can easily test your omega-3 levels at home, both before and after pregnancy.
The omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA can provide health benefits for both mother and baby during pregnancy and breastfeeding
EPA & DHA helps expectant and new mothers maintain a healthy heart with a daily intake of 250 mg EPA+DHA
Maternal DHA intake has been proven to help normal brain development in unborn children and breastfed infants*
Maternal DHA intake supports normal eye development in unborn children and breastfed infants*
The omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA have several benefits for the body and mind and contribute to maintaining your health**

* DHA helps keep brain function normal and supports vision with a daily intake of 250 mg DHA. Additional intake of at least 200 mg DHA by the mother, in addition to the recommended daily amount of 250 mg EPA+DHA, contributes to the normal development of the eyes and brain in the fetus or breastfed infant.
