Premium Prenatal DHA + Lutein Supplements
During pregnancy, there are some nutrients that every developing baby requires. Unfortunately, some of these cannot be made by the mother’s body and must be acquired through diet or supplementation. DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and lutein are two of these essential elements. DHA and lutein work together to deliver the proper level of nutrients for the visual and brain health of your growing baby. * The high concentration of vegetarian DHA combined with naturally-sourced lutein in Ally Nature’s prenatal formula delivers these essential primary ingredients in plant-based softgels throughout pregnancy, postpartum and early childhood.
The popular Prenatal DHA
DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid that is necessary during the growth of the baby. It is a critical component of the fetal brain and eyes. Most pregnant women likely do not get enough omega-3 fatty acids. This is due to the fact that the major dietary source comes from fish and seafood. These food items must be limited during pregnancy due to potential mercury levels. For pregnant women who are vegans or vegetarians, it is even more difficult to get the beneficial levels of DHA. Omega-3 supplement is an easy way to get the necessary DHA during pregnancy. *
Benefits of Lutein In Pregnancy
Lutein is a carotenoid with powerful antioxidant properties, it is well known for its significant role in the development of vision and nervous system (among others, it is important for the development of retina as well as energy metabolism and brain electrical activity). It is one of the major carotenoids in cord blood (blood from the umbilical cord) as well as prominent in colostrum (the first milk your breasts produce that contains antibodies and immunoglobulins to help protect and develop a newborn’s immune system). In addition, more scientific evidence is emerging on the role of lutein in the prevention of disorders affecting preterm infants, who are susceptible to oxidative stress, particularly retinopathy of prematurity. *
Lutein supplementation offers a simple and effective option for increasing intake to support proper eye development and a healthy brain throughout pregnancy and lactation. Our body cannot make lutein on its own, so it is essential that pregnant women get it from diet or supplementation. *
