Mum, Baby & Omega 3
At Nuique we know that nothing but the best is good enough for your baby, that’s why our Omega 3 supplements are the purest and most natural form of Omega 3. They are highly concentrated, 100% natural and from the source of Omega 3, algae. Whilst Omega 3 is great for all the family, it’s especially important pre/during and post pregnancy and when breastfeeding. It’s also important for infants and young children.
Omega 3 plays a vital role in the development of a baby’s brain, heart, eyes and nervous system. Omega 3 is also referred to as ‘an essential long chain fatty acid’. ‘Essential’ because it can’t be manufactured by the body, it can only be obtained through the diet.
Diet and Pregnancy
A healthy diet is an important part of a healthy lifestyle, it’s even more important when pregnant or when you’re planning to get pregnant. Eating a healthy diet during pregnancy will help your baby to develop and grow, and will keep you fit and well. Studies have shown that a poor diet during pregnancy can contribute to health problems for children later in life.
Research, by scientists from the University of Cambridge, provides important insight into why children born to mothers who consumed an unhealthy diet during pregnancy have an increased risk of type 2 diabetes (a significant contributing factor to heart disease and cancer) later in life. "What is most exciting about these findings is that we are now starting to really understand how nutrition during the first nine months of life spent in the womb shape our long term health by influencing how the cells in our body age," said Dr Susan Ozanne, the senior author on the paper and British Heart Foundation Senior Fellow from the Institute of Metabolic Science at the University of Cambridge.
Avoid fish oil and fish - Take an algae supplement instead
Typical western diets are deficient in long chain Omega 3, whilst health authorities recommend only eating 2 portions of oily fish per week when pregnant and breastfeeding due to fears from heavy metal poisoning, dioxins and PCB’s. Historically, DHA has only been available in oily fish, fish oil & cod liver oil supplements.
NOW we have all the benefits of Omega 3 from algae oil. Our new generation algae Omega 3 supplements are grown in a pharmaceutical grade facility, away from the sea, so there’s no chance of contamination; they are therefore free from pollutants, heavy metals and toxins. Even the water used in the process is pure and filtered. So, you can rest assured nothing but the best is good enough for your baby
Studies suggest Omega 3 benefits are:
Development of eye, brain and nervous system- In fact the brain is made up of 45% DHA oil.
Lowers the risk of pre-term birth and low birth rate
Helps alleviate the baby blues
