Pregnancy

EQUAZEN has been specially formulated mumomega for women during pregnancy and breastfeeding as it contains a higher concentration of the structural fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and omega-3, than standard EQUAZEN. Adequate maternal intake of DHA throughout pregnancy is particularly important as it has been shown to contribute to the normal development of both the brain and eye of the foetus and breastfed infants.

These beneficial effects on the foetus and breastfed infants has led the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) to recommend all pregnant and nursing women consume the required 200 mg DHA per day, in addition to the 250 mg Omega-3 fatty acids (EPA+ DHA) per day already recommended for all adults.
