    DHA for pregnant women

    Hi...
    I've heard recently that many pregnant women are taking DHA supplements. Does anyone know where to get them and which brand suitable for pregnancy???

    I am taking Alaska fish oil and got them in watsons. There are some special pregnancy brands that you can order online as well.

    GNC also sells it in tablet form. Look for DHA and EPA and pay attention to the dosage, although any amount is better than nothing.

    Hi wasabibunny....
    can you tell me which brand are you using? I read from the internet that cod liver oil is not good for pregnant woman, so i want to make sure that I buy the correct one.

    How much are they?

    We bought it in the GNC in Queensway Plaza (those malls above the Admiralty MTR,but not Pacific Place). Don't see why not, though. And I believe the GNC brand has been certified as reliable by an independent test lab back in the US. A lot of these supplements aren't what they claim (in the US they are not regulated by FDA, so nobody checks on their actual contents).

    I am pretty sure I bought mine at Watsons. It's KON WELLTA Alaska premium deep sea salmon fish oil and it's in capsule form.

    i bought GNC's Fish Body Oils 1000, which contains
    EPA 180mg
    DHA 120mg
    I've read some article said that, we should take 300mg (DHA) per day. (Cod liver oil are not recommended)
    Well, i just take 1 capsule per day, and i feel like eating some fish. (I hate fish, so i think i really need it.)
