Growing your baby’s learning and concentration abilities from day one.
Good nutrition is always important throughout life, but did you know that nutrition is the most influential non-genetic factor of brain development?1 Whether you are planning to conceive, expecting, or breastfeeding, medical and nutritional experts agree that nutrition becomes even more crucial during these times, as it has implications for both you, and your baby.
During pregnancy you need to be even more conscientious of the amount of essential fatty acids (EFAs) in your diet. Your body will begin to prioritise your baby’s brain development and therefore shunt fatty acids from you and deliver them to your baby.2 EFAs are vital for good health, so it’s important to make sure you are always getting enough. The best source of Omega-3 EFAs is fish, therefore you should consume enough fish to receive the benefits that EFAs offer your body.
Mumomega provides additional supplementation of essential fatty acids to help benefit both you and your baby.
Positive effects on birth weight and pregnancy length
Where the foetal brain needs essential fatty acids the most
By providing the building blocks for the cells that make up the brain and eyes
Omega-3 and Omega-6 are essential fatty acids that are vital for good health. Since your body is unable to produce some of these essential fatty acids, they must be obtained through your diet.5
DHA: Docosahexaenoic Acid; EPA: Eicosapentaenoic Acid; GLA: Gamma-Linolenic Acid.
Food for thought: Adding Mumomega early may support your babies’ essential fatty acids need and help support early brain development.
