As a mum-to-be, you will be embarking on an exciting journey and you want the best for your developing baby and yourself. To support the nutritional needs of your developing baby and yourself during pregnancy and lactation, the American Pregnancy Association recommends at least four servings of dairy products a day during pregnancy. Dairy products not only contain vitamin A and Vitamin D, but are a great source of protein and calcium as well, all which help your baby grow and develop properly.
NOD Pregnancy Formula is an essential nutritional care for mothers-to-be and is specially formulated with premium ingredients such as DHA, Folic Acid, Iron, Zinc and calcium.
DHA is important for optimal infant brain and eye development. DHA is important throughout pregnancy, particularly in the third trimester when major brain growth occurs. Increasing DHA intake during pregnancy and nursing significantly enhances the level of DHA available to the foetus and infant. Certain studies (some, but not all) have shown that supplementation of DHA in the mother’s diet improves infant developmental outcomes, such as:
♦ eye-hand coordination
♦ motor skills
♦ attention span
Folic acid helps prevent neural tube defects (NTDs)—serious birth defects of the spinal cord (such as spina bifida) and the brain (such as anencephaly).Folic acid is also essential for the production, repair, and functioning of DNA, our genetic map and a basic building block of cells. So getting enough folic acid is particularly important for the rapid cell growth of the placenta and your developing baby.
