The power of Omega-3 – how it can help during TTC and pregnancy

FEATURING Wild Nutrition  |   21 Jun 2023


TRB Founder Eloise is joined by Jodie Abrahams, registered nutritional therapist from Wild Nutrition to chat through omega-3 benefits for women during conception and pregnancy.

Watch as Jodie shares how much you should take and the correct dosage for where you are in your fertility journey. Taking between 200 and 300 milligrams of DHA (a type of omega-3) daily when trying to conceive is a good idea… but how do you know if you’re deficient?

Jodie advises checking for symptoms such as dry skin, brittle hair, and brittle nails. Additionally, blood tests can be conducted to measure your omega-3 levels accurately – watch the live to find out how this works. If you suspect a deficiency, it is recommended to consult with a healthcare professional for proper diagnosis and guidance.

When it comes to supporting fertility, find out how omega-3 can help regulate hormones, improve blood flow to reproductive organs, and boost overall fertility. For pregnant women, omega-3 is crucial for the development of the baby’s brain, eyes, and nervous system. It is also beneficial for reducing the risk of preterm labour and postpartum depression. 

Consuming omega-3 from food sources like fatty fish (e.g., salmon, sardines) or through supplements can provide these benefits for women. Watch the video to learn more about what supplements offer over and above what you can get in your diet.
