During pregnancy, polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are not produced by them independently, are necessary for the body. Do these substances with food or food additives. If their number is insufficient, complications can arise both for the mother and the child.
A significant role for the full development of the fetus is fish oil, which contains fatty acids of the Omega-3 group. Therefore, during the planning of pregnancy, the doctor can prescribe you a dietary supplement called Omegamama.
Omegamama is a biologically active food additive (fish oil), which contains polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) Omega-3, which are necessary for the full development of the fetus. Their effect on the body of the pregnant and fetus manifests itself in fairly small doses (milligrams), but it is of great importance.
During pregnancy, the baby receives omega-3 fatty acids from the mother's body through the placenta. Among the acids of the Omega-3 group, the most important for the mother and future baby is docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), the concentration of which in the omegamam product is very high.
Satisfy the needs of your body and the body of the unborn child in Omega-3 acids, a pregnant woman can, if she adheres to a balanced diet and takes a multivitamin that provides the body with the necessary nutrients. If she does not consume enough omega-3 acids with food, then her body derives them from her own reserves. As a result, there is a lack of these components in the maternal organism, which makes it less resistant to stress, increases the likelihood of premature birth, postpartum depression, reduces the elasticity of cell membranes, etc.
The omegamama drug is targeted at the reproductive and neuropsychic systems of women up to and during pregnancy, as well as during lactation. For the mother, he prevents the threat of abortion, development of thromboembolic complications, arrhythmia of the heart, improves utero-placental blood circulation. Omegamama also contributes to the optimal intrauterine development of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems of the unborn child, especially his bones, brain and vision. This drug is recommended to support a healthy pregnancy and for feeding newborns.
Omegamama is made from an extract of fat from anchovies and sardines. In these species of fish, toxic metals practically do not accumulate, so the preparation itself is characterized by a high degree of purification and a lack of a fishy smell.
Unrefined fish oil may have an increased content of mercury, which can be dangerous in pregnancy and cause malformations of the fetus. In the omegamama product, fish oil is purified, so it is safe in pregnancy.
Women who have health problems should also be aware of the possible side effects of food additives based on fish oil. Although cod liver oil does not have universal contraindications, but in too large doses theoretically it can increase the risk of bleeding during pregnancy, so it should be taken in moderate doses.
If you have unpleasant sensations when taking BAD, including nausea, eructations, bad breath and taste in your mouth, you should consult a doctor for advice to replace the drug with another one that is more suitable.
