EPA, DHA og þú

EPA, DHA and you

EPA & DHA are vital fatty acids that the body does not produce on its own, so we need to get them from food or supplements. These nutrients are found in large amounts in the brain and are essential for the brain and central nervous system and memory. They are also found in the retina of the eye and support good vision and help reduce inflammation and form a good defense against infections. ✅

During pregnancy and/or breastfeeding, the body needs EPA and DHA to support the growth and development of the baby. The American Pregnancy Association recommends that pregnant women get at least 300mg of DHA per day. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends at least 100mg of DHA per day during breastfeeding. 💡

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children aged 1 to 3 years get at least 100mg of DHA per day and for 4-12 year olds at least 200mg. It is common for supplements to contain only the recommended amount of DHA, which is certainly necessary for the healthy growth of the child, but the ÖRLÖ products also contain EPA, which supports the general health of the body for both mother and child. 🤝

Don't go overboard and get the #1 source of DHA and EPA for both you and baby. 👶
