Zita West Vital DHA (60 Capsules)

The benefits of DHA and Omega 3 have been making news for the past decade for all stages of reproduction, from preparing for conception, through to pregnancy and immediately after the birth.It is especially important for the development of your baby's brain and nervous system as well as in the manufacture of healthy sperm.

Both partners should think about building their reserves prior to conception. If you are already pregnant, it is well worth starting at any time during pregnancy, whether or not you have considered taking supplemental DHA before you conceived. It can be particularly important as your baby is entirely reliant on your supply of DHA.

    • Why do I need to take Vital DHA if I am taking Vitafem or Pregnancy Plan?
      • Vitafem and Pregnancy Plan are excellent multivitamins and minerals but they don't contain the essential fatty acids you need. By taking Vital DHA alongside them, you will help to ensure you are optimally nourished when you get pregnant.
    • What are the benefits of taking both Vitafem or Pregnancy Plan and Vital DHA?
      • VitalDHA will help with hormone balance and egg production for conception as well as increasing your reserves of DHA to the benefit of your growing baby when you become pregnant.
    • Why should I take a supplement when I can take DHA from fatty fish?
      • It is sensible to incorporate fatty fish into your diet if you can. However, you would have to eat an awful lot of it to get the equivalent dosages delivered by the supplement. Unfortunately, as you may be aware, the FSA (Food Standards Agency) has recently had to warn women who are pregnant, or who are trying to get pregnant, to restrict their consumption of fresh tuna (the most popular of the oily fishes in the modern diet) due to concerns over the high levels of mercury found in some tuna fished from contaminated waters. VitalDHA does not contain any tuna but is produced from mixed, deep-sea, oily fish (using a process which removes any possible pollutants) and is biochemically screened for extra safety too.
    • How long in advance should I be taking Vital DHA?
      • We recommend that both men and women should ideally start to take a DHA supplement three to four months in advance of trying to conceive; but it is still worthwhile starting at any time prior to conception for couples, or during pregnancy for women. 8 out of 10 women enter pregnancy deficient in this essential fatty acid. It is important to take some form of DHA supplementation so that you can build your reserves for your developing baby. DHA supplementation has an important role to play for men too. It is thought that over 40% of cases of sub-fertility or infertility are now due to male factor problems (such as low quality sperm or low sperm motility) where deficiencies in DHA may be a contributory influence.
    • Why is DHA going to be the next Folic Acid?
      • The benefits of taking folic acid are now widely known, particularly its role in minimising the chance of anomalies with babies’ spines. And DHA is starting to get lots of recognition and press as well. A good maternal supply of DHA is crucial throughout pregnancy, particularly during the first 12-16 weeks of pregnancy when your baby’s brain and nervous systems are starting to develop. It's important during the third trimester too (28 - 40 weeks) as this is when maximum brain development occurs. 70% of the nourishment your baby consumes during this period goes towards it.
    • Is there an RDA for DHA?
      • No, but research shows 700 – 1000mg per day is what is needed to maximise this vital nutrient for your baby.
    • Is it possible to overdose on DHA?
      • It is best to maintain the recommended dosage on the product. 2 capsules provides 450mg of DHA per day.
    • How do I know DHA is safe to use during pregnancy?
      • Health experts around the world now agree on the importance of DHA both during pregnancy and the post-natal period.
    • I have read about fish oil being contaminated in the sea.
      • Vital DHA is produced from the oils of mixed, deep-sea fish, sourced from clean waters using only dolphin friendly techniques to harvest the fish. The product is made from highly refined oils (using a process which removes any possible pollutants) and is biochemically screened for extra safety too, so there is no risk of contamination. Given the concerns that have been raised about excess levels of mercury in fresh tuna and the risks this could pose for women who are trying to get pregnant or who are pregnant, there is all the more reason to consider using a good DHA supplement to cover your nutritional needs during this critical period. Does not contain any tuna oil.
    • I am very forgetful in pregnancy. Can DHA help?
      • Your growing baby cannot manufacture his or her own DHA, so he or she has to rely on your diet and your sources. In all likelihood this will be from your richest source - your brain. So far as we know there is no research to link memory loss directly with depleted levels of DHA, but it certainly seems possible that DHA deficiency may be an underlying cause.
