PLATINUM - Prenatal Omega3 DHA - 200 Millilitre(s) - NPN: 80022901 -- Essential to the development of the brain, the central nervous system and the retina, DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid that the human body cannot manufacture. For a developing infant, that means they must rely on their mothers breast milk as a source.Omega-3 oils are incredibly beneficial for both mothers and infants. During your pregnancy, polyunsaturated fatty acids are incorporated into fetal brain and retinal lipids. Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), in particular, is needed to support the development and function of the central nervous system. Unfortunately, most pregnant women cannot obtain sufficient quantities in their diet. A study conducted on pregnant Canadian women found that 90% of participants fell below the suggested amount as calculated by Dietary Reference Intake recommendations.Clinical trials revealed that higher intakes of DHA from fish or from supplementation resulted in infants with higher cognitive scores and higher IQs. Increased DHA intake has also been linked to better sleep patterns, improved birth weights, enhanced immunity, a reduced risk of allergic disease, as well as preterm delivery.Prenatal Omega-3 DHA offers concentrated DHA as well as 1000 IU of vitamin D per serving to further protect the health of mother and child.Did You Know?With concerns over the mercury levels of fish, expectant mothers receive only 20-25% of the required levels of DHA.The risk of preterm delivery and low birth rate is higher in those mothers with low DHA intake.Studies have shown that DHA deficiency is linked to an increased risk of postpartum depression.

What Our Customers Are Saying

★★★★★

I have been in multiple times since they opened and I love this store! Well organized, clean and really friendly staff. The owner is very friendly and genuinely cares about the customers. I was looking at some hair products and one of the employees came over and showed me her favourites and I ended up buying everything she recommended and I am not disappointed! My hair feels and smells amazing! This is seriously my favourite store in Fredericton! Such a great variety of products that you can feel safe using :)

I am so grateful to all the staff, especially Eleanor, who have been super helpful when I have come into the store or called in. I only recently discovered Sequoia Fredericton, but IMO, having worked in the service industry myself, the greatest achievement of a business is to have a team that exceeds service expectations and strives to offer 'personalized' care to every person who walks through the door. This is what I get at Sequoia, which is now my go-to store! Thanks :)
