Best DHA Supplement for Preggos!
on October 28, 2011
I started using this product when I was 22 weeks pregnant. I had tried Orthomega and Expecta Lipil. I was using Orthomega before I became pregnant. You only have to take one per day, but the pill is huge, and I still experienced burp up when I became pregnant. I then tried Expecta Lipil, but wasn't convinced that it was potent enough. The local organic foods store recommended Nordic Naturals Prenatal DHA. I did research online and decided this was the best product for me because it had the most complete Omega 3 and Vitamin D3. I have not been disappointed. I take 2 capsules with dinner or at bedtime. I have experienced absolutely NO fishy burp up or after taste. I trust the efficacy and purity of this product. My baby is 11 months old now, and I still take 2 capsules daily. I am a breastfeeding mom (no formula), so it is important that I continue my supplement regimen even though my son has started baby food.
NOTE to pregnant/lactating women: This is NOT a substitute for your prenatal vitamins. This is a supplement to prenatal vitamins. Ladies, if your prenatal vitamins already include a DHA supplement, please check with your doctor before taking this supplement. You only need one source for your DHA supplement. Also, I hope no one is misled by another reviewer's comment about this supplement not having folic acid. It's not intended to have folic acid. You get your folic acid from your prenatal vitamin, not from a DHA supplement.
