Info: 60 Enteric-Coated Softgels
This fish oil extract is mercury-free, made with Sea-licious's cleanest and purest anchovy and sardine oil. But don't worry about an off-putting taste - these softgel capsules (with a lemon-flavoured exterior) are enteric-coated, so they'll dissolve in the intestines, not the stomach, so there's no burping or fish oil taste.
Sea-Licious Belly to Baby Prenatal also contains ginger root, to help prevent nausea, upset stomach, or indigestion during pregnancy, and Vitamin D3, another essential building blocks for a baby's developing brain and eyes, and also helps support expectant mothers' mood and mental focus.
DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid), an omega-3 fatty acid, has a number of important functions in the human body, both during development and on an ongoing basis, especially in the eyes and brain. We get it through diet, but pregnant and nursing women need more of it to share; deficiencies may lead to various sorts of cognitive or visual impairments in their newborn. And while many types of fish are excellent sources of Omega-3 DHA, the health authorities in some locales caution against eating it more than twice a week, for fear of mercury contamination.
