Each capsule provides 300mg DHA, the level recommended by international experts for mums during lactation*.
Maternal intake of DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) contributes to the normal brain and eye development of breast-fed infants**. Infants have limited capability to synthesize fatty acids, which therefore must be obtained direct from external sources such as the mother's milk.
During breast-feeding, the infant's brain continues to take up DHA and 15% of brain growth occurs after birth.
Contains the purest pharmaceutical grade fish oil, certified for sustainability by Friend of the Sea.

** A beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 200mg DHA in addition to the recommended daily intake of omega-3 fatty acids for adults.
