About Elevit DHA & Choline Pregnancy:

    DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid which is essential for healthy brain and central nervous system development. DHA isn’t something we can naturally produce much of; therefore, it must be obtained through diet or supplementation. While DHA can be obtained through diet by eating oily fish and seafood products, many women don’t eat the recommended serves of these types of foods, that’s why we developed Elevit DHA & Choline Pregnancy.

    Choline is an essential nutrient that is required by the body for many steps in metabolism, cell formation and repair, it is not made in adequate quantities by the body and must be obtained through diet. The need for choline increases in pregnancy as it plays an important role in a baby’s early brain development, as well as supporting maternal placenta health.

    Choline is found in food sources such as red meat, poultry, fish, dairy products and eggs11,12, however it can be difficult to meet the recommended levels required for pre-conception, pregnancy and breastfeeding with just diet alone, especially as some women have restrictive diets. If you feel you aren’t eating enough of this nutrient to support your growing baby taking a supplement like Elevit DHA & Choline Pregnancy is a convenient way to top up on this very important nutrient.

    About Elevit DHA & Choline Pregnancy:

      The first 1000 days of a baby's life, from conception to their 2nd birthday, is a critical period for brain and nervous system development. While DHA & Choline plays a key role in this, most pregnant and breastfeeding women do not get enough of these important nutrients through diet alone as they can be cautious about eating fish during this time or may have diet restrictions.

      During pre-conception, pregnancy, and breastfeeding, it is recommended to supplement to reach adequate levels of DHA & choline and in turn support your growing baby.

      While there is no recommended daily intake (RDI) for DHA (alone) in pregnancy, local and international guidelines recognise that it is an important nutrient during pre-conception, pregnancy, and breastfeeding, and that many women may not obtain enough from food sources. The National Health and Medical Research Council recommends that pregnant women get around 110 -115mg/day of total fats (DHA+EPA+DPA)1. The European Food Safety Authority recommends that pregnant and breastfeeding women take 100-200mg DHA per day, in addition to recommendations for healthy adults (200mg is roughly equivalent to one tin of tuna (95g))6.

      The recommended daily intake (RDI) levels for choline are 415 mg / 440 mg in pregnancy (women 14-18 / 19-50) to 550mg in lactating women.11,12

      During pre-conception, pregnancy and breastfeeding eating a balanced diet of vegetables, red meat, seafood, poultry, eggs, and dairy products is a great start to getting the nutrients you need to support your baby and Elevit DHA & Choline Pregnancy is a convenient way to top up your nutrition to give your baby the best start.

      It supports:

      • Mother’s pre-conception health & placenta growth

      It can be difficult to reach the optimal amount of these nutrients with diet alone. Elevit DHA & Choline Pregnancy contains 200mg DHA and 110g choline to help meet the needs of women through pre-conception, pregnancy, and breastfeeding.

      It is intended to be taken in addition to Elevit Preconception & Pregnancy Multivitamin, however as Elevit Breastfeeding also contains 200mg DHA the two products should not be taken together. It can be added to the diet based on individual needs.

      Elevit DHA & Choline Pregnancy is available in a 60’s pack from your local pharmacy.

        Traditionally, the most common source of DHA has been oily fish, making it difficult for most people to obtain the recommended levels. While many think that fish produce their own DHA, in fact, it’s the algae they feed on that makes them a rich source. Our DHA is derived directly from this microalgae. It is a plant-sourced, sustainably harvested form of DHA Omega-3 with no fishy taste or smell, making it easier for you to increase your intake of this important nutrient.
