Support mom and baby during pregnancy and through nursing with omega-3's.

Two essential omega-3 fatty acids – DHA and EPA – to support a healthy pregnancy and development of baby’s brain and nervous system*

Thorne Prenatal DHA 60 Gelcaps


    DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid that is essential for the development of a healthy brain, as well as nerves and eyes.* DHA is especially important for healthy fetal and infant development, accumulating in a baby’s developing brain primarily during the third trimester of pregnancy through the first two years of life.* DHA supports a healthy pregnancy as well.* Although the body can make some DHA, its conversion rate is low, so most DHA needs to be consumed in the diet. The primary dietary sources of DHA – fatty, cold-water fish – aren’t heavily consumed in a western diet, so an omega-3 nutritional supplement can help a mother reach an optimal DHA level.

    • DHA accounts for more than 90 percent of the fatty acids in the brain.
    • DHA accounts for more than 90 percent of the fatty acids in the retina.
    • Two lobes of the brain – frontal and prefrontal – rely heavily on DHA and are responsible for the ability to learn, problem solve, focus attention, and maintaining a positive mood.*
    • Average daily U.S. adult intake of DHA and EPA is only 90 mg; and only 40 mg in children and teenagers.
    • Most researchers recommend a minimum of 500 mg DHA + EPA daily.
