BELVEA Pregnancy & Breastfeeding VEGAN Formula

BELVEA Pregnancy & Breastfeeding VEGAN Formula is a high DHA Algal Oil Formula which is highly purified and concentrated, to deliver a high dose of DHA in a small softgel. DHA (an Omega-3 Long Chain Polyunsaturated Fatty Acid) IS ESSENTIAL during pregnancy & breastfeeding stages, to ensure optimal fetal brain, eye, immune and nervous system development for a developing fetus. Therefore, it is ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL that the expectant mother consumes sufficient DHA, especially in the first trimester of the pregnancy and throughout the entire three trimesters of the pregnancy and during breastfeeding.

The human body does not produce its own DHA. Therefore, the pregnant mother should ensure that her diet is sufficiently nourished with good DHA food sources. Unfortunately, the modern fast paced diet tends to be lacking in such nourishment.  For this reason, supplementing the diet with DHA supplements is important.

What is the Difference When Compared to Other Ordinary Fish Oil?

BELVEA Pregnancy & Breastfeeding VEGAN Formula is DHA obtained from a single species of marine micro algae (which is why it is called Algal Oil and NOT Algae Oil). The species of Schizochytrium sp. is used in the production of this DHA oil. In comparison to other micro algae oil, a single species oil offers consistency in batch to batch comparisons, as opposed to algae oil, which could have inconsistent ratios of different species in every production batches thus varying the concentration of DHA from one production batch to another.

Pregnant and Breastfeeding mothers should be careful when selecting the choice of ‘fish oils’ to supplement their diets. It should be made aware that not all ‘fish oils’ are formulated for pregnancy use. Most ‘fish oils’ that are available in the over-the-counter shelves in pharmacies, are designed for cardiovascular well-being and NOT for pregnancy. Such ‘fish oils’ have blood thinning properties which can be high risk for pregnant mothers, especially towards the end of the third trimester. Hence, pregnant mothers should be aware of this risk.

BELVEA Pregnancy & Breastfeeding  range offers two product options that ARE FORMULATED SPECIFICALLY FOR pregnancy & breastfeeding supplementation. The ratio of the Omega oil components are carefully concentrated to ensure that only the important DHA component are high and the other blood thinning components are extremely low. These formulations are therefore PURPOSE FORMULATED for pregnancy & breastfeeding use.

BELVEA Pregnancy & Breastfeeding VEGAN Formula is made from 100% single species marine micro algae. The softgel is made from corn. It is a 100% vegan product which makes it suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

Directions of Use

Take 1 to 2 softgels a day.

Best way to consume DHA supplements would be to take with food.

Women who are planning for a baby should start taking DHA supplements as early as 3 months before a planned pregnancy. This allows sufficient time for a DHA build-up in the body before any planned conception. During pregnancy, the developing fetus will draw the DHA from the mother’s body, therefore, a good DHA build-up would be essential.
