Omega-3 fatty acids are absolutely essential for your Baby. This starts from conception and it is vital that Mum obtains sufficient omega-3s from her diet. Omega-3 supplement is widely recommended for mums to be, and Opti3 is a perfect option.

Omega-3s are essential for baby and toddler development, so in addition to obtaining sufficient nutrients during pregnancy, it is vital that you Baby obtains all key nutrients from birth onwards. The first years of life see rapid, incredible growth and development, so it is essential your little one is given the best chance. Omega-3s play a key role for babies and children, so it is vital you assess their diet and supplement if required.

Why are omega-3 fatty acids so important for babies?


For the first 2 years, Baby’s brain is still developing rapidly and using up a lot of energy and nutrients in the process. Omega-3 fatty acids are critical. Studies have shown that infants whose mothers have higher omega-3 intake from their diet have improved cognition and attention.

Why is Flax Seed insufficient as my vegetal omega-3?


Seeds and seed oils such as Chia, Blackcurrant and Flax are sources of Omega-3, however are not sufficient. The issue is very simple, the form of Omega-3 in these sources is only of value to the body if converted, and this conversion is low.

The two key forms of Omega-3 of use to the body are Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA). Seeds and seed oils such as Flax contain Omega-3 in the form of Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA). Here is the math.. ALA needs to be converted by the body to EPA in order to be of value as an Omega-3, however at best that conversion rate is only 5%.

Opti3 contains Omega-3 in the correct forms of EPA and DHA, making it immediately bioavailable for the body to utilise.

Why is Opti3 so good as a source of Omega-3 for mum & baby?


Quite simply, Opti3 is perfect for mum and baby due to its purity. Unlike fish sources of omega-3, which can contain toxins and contaminants including mercury and heavy metals, Opti3 is produced in a way that ensures 100% purity.

This means mum and baby can obtain high quantities of essential omega-3 fatty acids in the correct forms of Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) and Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) from a 100% pure source.

What dose would you recommend for my baby? 

Please always your Doctor or Health Practitioner when considering taking any supplements.

Each individual Opti3 capsule contains a minimum of 150mg EPA and 250mg DHA. Our recommendation is to use 1 x capsule per day for your baby. In addition to the Omega-3 EPA & DHA, 1 x capsule will provide Baby with 100iu of Vitamin D3. 

As Opti3 is supplied in capsules, the correct method is to pierce a capsule and add the oily contents to Baby’s milk or food.
