Omega Goodness for You And Your Baby

Omega fish oils are good for a great many things, your heart, your brain, your mood, to balance your hormones and your baby. As your brain is mostly made up of fats, the consumption of fish and flaxseed oils help your brains health and your mood. This is good for you and for your baby’s brain development and growth. This is especially true for the brain development of a healthy baby while still in the womb, there are studies that have even shown to alleviate and even prevent many types of depression in later life. Another advantage of taking a lot of omega oils during pregnancy is miscarriages, this helps prevent miscarriages. Good sources of omega fish oils includes fatty fish, tuna, salmon and sardines. Although this is a good source, due to all the pollution nowadays, it is best advised that you take some omega oil supplements, this is especially a good idea when pregnant, because too much mercury or PCB toxins can be bad for your unborn baby. Sources of flaxseed oils is found in plants, like ground flaxseed and walnuts. These are especially rich in omega 3 fatty acids. Some doctors do say that pregnant woman should not take flaxseed oil. The reason for this is that the flax seed seems to have an effect on estrogen levels and hormones levels of a pregnant woman, and might interfere with a pregnant woman’s body during pregnancy. Another reason is that fish oil has a higher amount of DHA.

We should be careful not to take one omega oil more than the other, we should take equal amounts of both omega 3 and omega 6. Lots of food seems to contain omega 6, therefore we have to be extra careful to take extra omega 3.

Let’s have a look at how omega is good for your unborn baby. Your baby’s brain growth peaks during your third trimester. This is when the omega fatty acids have their greatest effect on your baby’s brain, learning, behavioral development and attention span. But it is important that you keep the ration of omega 3 and omega 6 the same, as unbalanced amounts of these can have an effect of infant growth and development. But that aside, these essential fatty acids also plays an important role in the normal functioning of tissues in the body. Some studies have found that babies born from mothers who had a good amount of omega fatty acids had advanced levels of development and attention spans. These babies were found to be at least two months ahead of babies the same age well into the second year of life. Omega fatty acids play an important part of brain development, and attention is considered an important component of intelligence in early life, especially during the first two years.

Many studies have shown that pregnant woman do not get enough omega 3 as they should, for their benefits as well as the unborn or breastfeeding baby. You need about 250mg daily, therefore supplements is a good idea.

Every single day holds the promise of a miracle.
