Omega-3 like nature intended
Developing infants rely on their mother for DHA, and receive it through the placenta during pregnancy and through breast milk when nursing. Numerous health organizations globally thus recommend that pregnant and breastfeeding women increase their intake of omega-3 DHA.
For the developing brain
The most profound growth of the human brain takes place during the period of pregnancy and the first 2 years of the infant's life. Omega-3 DHA has a crucial role in this process, and that’s when your baby has the greatest need for DHA. Omega-3 DHA supports normal brain growth and cognitive development of the fetus and nursing infants.
For your baby
Sufficient intake of DHA during pregnancy and breastfeeding is also needed to support your baby’s normal eye development and function, their normal nervous system development, and to boost their attention span, motor skills & hand-eye coordination later in life.
For children & toddlers
Omega-3 DHA is also especially important for toddlers and children, which makes Simris® Algae Omega-3 for Mothers a particularly good option for kids as well. The softgels may be too large for small children, but can be cut open to serve the oil on a spoon, or mixed with their food.
