Why is DHA Important for Babies’ Development?

  • DHA is the essential nutrient for optimal brain development (1,2,3,4, 9)
  • DHA is the main building block for retina development (1,5,4)
  • DHA improve gestation length and reduce the risk of pre-term baby (6,7)
  • DHA is associated with greater birth weight & length (6,7,8)

Product Benefits

Obimin Pluz contains key vitamins &
minerals plus DHA/EPA which are
required for a healthy pregnancy and
lactation

 

DHA
Building blocks of the brain and eye (retina)

EPA
For optimum brain functions

Vitamin B Complex
Essential for energy metabolism and foetal cell development

Vitamin C
Enhances iron absorption

Vitamin D
Enhances calcium absorption

Calcium
Essential mineral for baby and mother’s bones and teeth

Folic Acid
Essential for growth and cells division and plays an important role in the formation of red blood cells. Protects against malformation of the spine (Spina bifida), skull and brain (anencephaly).

Iron
Essential for producing extra red blood cells needed by both mother and baby. Prenatal prophylactic iron supplementation significantly lowers the incidence of low-birthweight and preterm low-birth-weight babies.

Copper
Essential for blood cell development

Iodine
Assists in the development of the thyroid gland and its hormones
