OMIAGE is rich in high quality Omega-3 DHA, vitamins and minerals for mother and child. DHA is an Omega-3 fatty acid that is passed on to your baby during pregnancy and breastfeeding for healthy brain and eye development. Furthermore, DHA can help to restore your vitality soon after the birth of your baby.
OMIAGE offers the PeriNatal range of vitamins and minerals that will best match your specific requirements. With OMIAGE you, as a pregnant woman, will meet the officially recommended daily consumption of 400 mcg folic acid.
Omega 3 essential fatty acids are an important part of a healthy diet for a pregnant and breastfeeding mother. Maximising good fats such as polyunsaturated fats and decreasing bad fats such saturated fats is a goal worth reaching, particularly during pregnancy.
Omega 3 fats are particularly important during Pre and Post Natal pregnancy. Omega 3 DHA can help support your baby’s development of the brain, cognitive system and immune system. Omega 3 fats also help cell growth and development and can prevent premature births and low birth weights.
When pregnant, magnesium is recommended as it helps build and repair your body’s tissues. Magnesium deficiencies may lead to poor fetal growth and even infant mortality.
Research has shown that optimum levels of magnesium can help keep the uterus from contracting prematurely. Moreover, magnesium may help build strong bones and teeth, whilst also regulating insulin and blood sugar levels and helping certain enzymes function.
When pregnant, iron is vital for a number of reasons including:
- When pregnant, the amount of blood within the blood can increase by as much as 50% , putting pressure on iron levels to make more hemoglobin, the protein in red blood cells responsible for carrying oxygen to all cells.
- During the second and third trimester extra iron is needed to support your growing baby and placenta.
- Iron deficiencies have been linked with preterm delivery, low birth weight and infant mortality.
When pregnant, zinc is recommended as it is essential for the production, repair and proper function of DNA, the basic building block of cells. During pregnancy, a process of rapid cell growth occurs, making zinc supplementation particularly important. Zinc can also help support your immune system, maintain your senses and help heal wounds.
Women who might become pregnant, or are pregnant need a folic acid supplement. Folic acid can assist in preventing ‘neural tube deficit’ or defects of the spinal cord and/or brain. Folic acid has been the centre of much compelling research suggesting it can also help lower the risk other defects, including heart defects. Folic acid or folate is required to maintain DNA, in similar ways to zinc, furthering supporting cell growth and a developing baby. Folic acid is recommended for all mothers to increase good health and development for your baby.
Iodine plays a vital role in regulating your thyroid gland and helps support your metabolism, the rate at which your body uses energy. During pregnancy, iodine can help the development of a baby’s brain and nervous system. Iodine deficiencies have been linked with an increased risk of miscarriages, still births and preterm delivery.
Pregnant woman , compared to others have a slightly increased need for Vitamin B12. Severe deficiencies of Vitamin B12 can lead to serious consequences for mother and baby, although this is highly unlikely. Vitamin B12 is stored within the body, an amount which is quickly depleted during pregnancy as the developing baby requires Vitamin B12 for development and to store.
