Nordic Naturals: Prenatal DHA Review

 
 
It is so important to increase your intake of DHA while pregnant and breastfeeding. It has been shown that DHA helps to support the healthy development of a baby's brain, eyes, nervous system and immune system while developing in the womb, it may be helpful in lowering a mother's risk for early labor and it can also help to elevate your mood and soothe nerves (which can be especially helpful after baby arrives). Getting enough DHA in your diet during both pregnancy and while breastfeeding is so important, as your body is working extra hard to grow and nourish your baby. 
 
I have had the wonderful opportunity to review Nordic Naturals in the past and I truly appreciate the care and quality that goes into all of their products. Not only does Nordic Naturals have high standards when it comes to their products, but they also use eco-responsible business practices and sustainable fishing practices. Nordic Naturals is the leading supplier of omega oil supplements and they are committed to providing the safest and most effective omega oils. Their high standards continue right into their Prenatal DHA supplement. The Nordic Naturals Prenatal DHA has even had the honor of being named the official prenatal DHA supplement of the American Pregnancy Association.  
 
 
I was thrilled to receive a bottle of the Nordic Naturals Prenatal DHA. It was an easy supplement to add to my daily vitamin and supplement routine and found that it was both easy on my stomach and easy to swallow. I simply needed to take two of the soft gel pills daily and it provided me with 450 mg of DHA (which goes above and beyond the recommended minimum dose of 300 mg a day).
 
 
This is such an easy way to add DHA to my diet! I know how important it is to get plenty of DHA in my diet while I am pregnant and also after pregnancy, when I am breastfeeding. I can't eat fish every day (and probably shouldn't, due to the risk of mercury in some fish!) and this is a simple way to make sure that I am balancing my diet and providing my new little baby with plenty of good DHA's while he is growing. These supplements are a nice, easy size to take and have no scent or smell to them. I am thankful to have gotten the chance to take them during my pregnancy and I know that I will continue to take them after our little boy is born and I am breastfeeding! I would definitely recommend these to anyone who is pregnant an breastfeeding!

  1. When I was pregnant, I FINALLY settle on Nordic Naturals DHA because they were the ONLY DHA that I did not get a fish burp from. I highly recommend them.

  2. Thanks for sharing this! I am currently taking the Spectrum brand Prenatal DHA because it's vegan (the fish oil didn't agree with me) but my little guy takes the Nordic Naturals kiddo DHA supplements, and loves them. :o)
