Let us explain fatty acids to you very quickly….!
We consume three types of fats within our diets: saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated. Two polyunsaturated fats are considered to be essential: Omega-3 and Omega-6 (the ‘omega’ and the ‘3’ or ‘6’ relate to their chemical structures).
Omega-3 is important for the development of Baby’s brain and eyes, especially during the latter stages of pregnancy. It is vitally important that mothers get enough omega-3 essential fatty acids.
There are many reported benefits of Omega-3 during pregnancy and breast feeding:
• Builds Baby’s brain
• Helps form Baby’s retinas
• Important for developing Baby’s nervous system
• Improves the general health of Mum and Baby
• Reduces the chances of developing preeclampsia
• Helps lower the risk of post-natal depression
Opti3 is a high strength Omega-3 EPA & DHA supplement perfect for Mum & Baby. We’ve added a small dose of Vitamin D3, also highly beneficial to Mum & Baby.
Oily fish are the common dietary source of Omega-3, but fish actually get their omega-3s through a natural algae-rich diet. Experts recommend pregnant and breast feeding women limit their oily fish intake to 2 portions per week, due to the possible presence of possibly harmful contaminants including mercury, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) or even dioxins. We use special algae grown in a fully-controlled pharmaceutical facility to obtain our Omega-3, guaranteeing zero contaminants or toxins.
Opti3 is 100% pure, 100% natural and 100% contaminant-free. Mothers and mums-to-be can take Opti3 in the confidence that you and your Baby will get the benefits of Omega-3 EPA & DHA without any concerns about pollutants or toxins.
