Since I found out I was pregnant I did all the research and reading I could to get all the information on the best nutrition I could take for
the best development of my baby.
One of the most important additions to my diet was omega-3 fatty acids so I started supplementing from the second trimester with OmegaBrite
Getting enough omega-3s during pregnancy has been associated with numerous benefits for the child, including:
• Higher intelligence
• Better communication and social skills
• Less behavioral problems
• Decreased risk of developmental delay
• Decreased risk of ADHD, autism and cerebral palsy
I also have to say that I not only rely on supplements to get my omega-3. As a qualified nutrition coach, I also know the importance of
making sure I include high omega-3 fatty acids in my diet.
Here are a few foods that are incredibly good for adding those extra omega-3 fatty acids into your diet as well as supplementing:
⁃ Chia seed
⁃ Kale, spinach
⁃ Peanut butter
Reasons why is so important to make sure you get enough omega-3:
Depression & Anxiety
Omega-3 fatty acids are incredibly important for your body and brain health.
There are three types of omega-3 fatty acids: ALA, EPA and DHA. Of the three, EPA appears to be the best at fighting depression and anxiety
Inflammation & Asthma
Omega-3 fatty acids can reduce the production of molecules and substances linked to inflammation.
As you might know if you have followed me for a while, I suffer with asthma and as asthma is an inflammation on the lungs to me it is very important to consume omega-3 to help reduce the symptoms of my asthma.
Bone & Jointhealth
Studies indicate that omega-3s can improve bone strength by increasing the amount of calcium in bones. This should lead to a reduced risk of
Menstrual pain occurs in the lower abdomen and pelvis, and often radiates to the lower back and thighs.
It can result in significant negative effects on a person’s quality of life.
However, studies have repeatedly shown that women who consume the most omega-3s have milder menstrual pain
Low levels of omega-3 fatty acids are associated with sleep problems in children and obstructive sleep apnea in adults
Low levels of DHA have also been linked to lower levels of the hormone melatonin, which helps you fall asleep.
Studies in both children and adults have shown that supplementing with omega-3 increases the length and quality of sleep
Omega-3 also benefits your skin in several ways:
• Controlling oil production in skin.
• Maintaining hydration of the skin.
• Preventing hyperkeratinization of hair follicles (the little red
bumps often seen on upper arms).
• Preventing premature ageing of the skin.
• Preventing acne
