Pregnancy Nursing Period.
Femibion 2 Pregnancy
Nursing Period is a
combination of 400 μg of folate (200 µg of
folic acid combined with the corresponding
quantity of Metafolin) and further vitamins
and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid).
The particular significance of DHA
In the second half of pregnancy, DHA, a
polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acid, is
particularly important. Maternal intake of
DHA contributes to the normal development
of the eyes and the brain of the foetus and
breastfed infant. The beneficial effect is
obtained with a daily intake of 200 mg of
DHA in addition to the recommended daily
intake for omega-3 fatty acids for adults, i.e.
250 mg DHA.
The German Society of Nutrition (DGE),
therefore, recommends the daily intake of at
least 200 mg DHA during pregnancy and the
nursing period. Femibion 2 Pregnancy
Nursing Period contains 200 mg DHA
extracted from highly purified fish-oil
concentrate. The strictly controlled
manufacturing procedure employed
guarantees excellent, nearly odourless
quality. Being a natural product, slight colour
fluctuations of the fish oil are possible.
