Why The Best Prenatal Fish Oil Has More DHA . . . A Lot More
If you’re pregnant, all of a sudden the world becomes so much more complicated!
Inside of you, this new life is growing into a little person. And you want to give them every advantage possible.
We know how it feels – we’ve been there!
It’s the most exciting feeling in the world . . . and the most daunting. Every decision is HUGE. And when it comes to nutrition, every bite you take becomes even more consequential.
It’s easy to wrack yourself with guilt that you’re doing something wrong . . . or feel paralyzed by all the sometimes conflicting information out there.
Certainly pregnancy advice comes and goes. And there’s a lot of misinformation out there . . .
(Like, for example, the thoroughly unsound advice that pregnant women shouldn’t exercise – Glad that’s been cleared up!)
But one choice piece of prenatal advice is as clear as a bell, bolstered by a strong and growing body of evidence . . .
Your baby (and you) needs lots of the Omega-3 fatty acids. Even more specifically – a lot of the Omega-3 fatty acid, DHA.**
Why DHA Is So Important For Your Baby’s Brain (And Adult Brains, Too!)
DHA is part of every cell membrane. It is a critical ingredient for nerve, brain and eye development.
97% of the Omega-3 fats in your brain are DHA
93% of the Omega-3s in your retina are DHA.1
In fact, that’s why
Pre-clinical research and a growing number of exciting human case studies indicates adults can get targeted brain and retina support from using DHA as well.**2, 3
Going back to pregnancy . . . Omega-3s’ benefits seem to go beyond brain and eye health. Research indicates that Omega 3s may make a difference in
Maintaining a pregnancy for a full nine months**4
Having a healthy birthweight baby**5
One recent study even hints that getting lots of DHA during pregnancy can influence how much muscle your child has 5 years down the road!**6
But while the mainstream medical world finally now advocates DHA for healthy pregnancy, they still don’t recommend it enough. DHA may be in most prenatal supplements – but usually in paltry, token amounts.
This is even more of a problem in the third trimester and after birth.
In the last few months your baby’s need for DHA balloons.7
And during the first 90 days of life a newborn’s brain grows at an amazing rate of 1% per day.
As you can see, you need to have enough DHA in your diet to help your baby build a powerful brain, healthy retinas and more.**
That’s why we created OmegaVia DHA600.
We designed OmegaVia DHA600 after discovering how hard it is to find a good prenatal fish oil supplement. DHA600
Gives you and your baby plenty of DHA to support healthy brain and eye development**
Is relatively easy to manage even with morning sickness or heartburn thanks to the enteric coating, concentration and small pill size
Has been purified with low heat distillation for mercury, PCBs and cholesterol
Has a third-party certified 5-star rating and has been confirmed radiation-free by IFOS
Plus, if you’re taking it for targeted brain support as an adult
It hits the clinically-indicated “sweet spot” for helping your brain stay sharp and vibrant**
How Much DHA Do You Need During Pregnancy?
For a healthy pregnancy and healthy fetal development, the latest consensus is
Pregnant women should take at minimum 300-600 mg DHA per day during the first two trimesters.
This goes up to 900-1200 mg in the last trimester through breastfeeding.
But based on the research, that may be just a starting point. Several clinical trials show excellent outcomes for vision and brain development at 2000 plus mg per day.**8
In our families, we’ve used more than 1000 mg in the first two trimesters and doubled this for the third.
It depends somewhat on what your starting point is. You can tell how much you have from a simple Omega-3 index blood test that you can do at home. Most recommendations are that you get this index number up to 5%.
Whatever you decide to do, don’t skip this important prenatal nutrient. And certainly don’t stop it at the end of pregnancy either.
The good thing is, despite some rumors, there are no contraindications for taking lots of Omega-3s . . .
Know The Facts: Prenatal DHA Supplements Do Not Put You At Risk For Excess Bleeding!!
Going back to bad pregnancy advice, you do not need to stop taking DHA at the end of your pregnancy. In fact that’s when you need it the most.
Despite the rumors, you are not putting yourself at risk for excess bleeding by taking fish oil supplements.
A 2017 review of 52 studies covering both healthy people and people going into surgery found no increased risk for clotting problems when taking fish oil supplements.**9
In fact, when researchers drilled down even deeper, they found something even more mind boggling . . . higher levels of fish oil might even help stop bleeding!!
In a study involving 1500 cardiac surgery patients, researchers gave the participants a whopping 6500 to 8000 mg of fish oil 2-5 days before surgery and 1700 mg on the day of surgery through to discharge.
Much to everyone’s surprise, researchers saw a significant decrease in how many blood transfusions these patients needed. In fact the patients with the highest Omega-3 levels needed the least amount of transfusions.**10
So the science is there to set your mind at ease: Fish oil – perhaps even as much as 8000 mg - will not put you at risk for excess bleeding. Of course, just to be clear, we don’t see any evidence pointing to taking more than 3000 mg per day in most cases.
Without dispute, if you’re pregnant, planning to be pregnant or breastfeeding, you want to get a lot of DHA in your diet.
What If I Didn’t Get Enough DHA At The Start Of My Pregnancy?
If for some reason you didn’t get a good start with DHA – because you didn’t know about it . . . or assumed you got enough in your prenatal sup . . . or had intolerable morning sickness that made it hard to swallow a pill . . . or got flummoxed with all the choices . . .
Don’t sweat it.
Just start taking it now and in higher amounts to get your stores back on track.
The truth is the baby will get priority for your DHA intake and stores. So in many cases your baby may have been getting enough from what you had already. You just need to restore your supply and beef up on it for those last few months when the demand gets really big.
Also, in addition to getting extra DHA with a prenatal fish oil like this one, you still should take a fish oil supplement that combines EPA and DHA. You – mom – still need a lot of EPA for general use around the body.
Because of this, many women take OmegaVia DHA 600 prenatal fish oil in addition to their basic fish oil supplement. In order to boost the DHA levels up a little.
Two Things You Can Do To Magnify These Omega 3 Fish Oil Pills’ Power
This being said, there are two common threads we’ve seen in our happiest customer stories:
- They don’t just depend on the supplement alone. By making some specific dietary changes that magnify Omega 3s power in the body, they see better results. See the tab, “No Magic Pill” for a full explanation of how this works.
- They take the supplement consistently over the long-term. Omega 3s work by bringing the specific nutrients back into balance in your body. This takes time and consistency. That’s why our Autoship program is so popular (7 out of 10 of our customers use it). Autoship makes it easy to do this. See the “Save Big & Simplify” tab for more details.
When you put these two practices together with OmegaVia’s Ultra-Concentrated Fish Oil, you get beautiful results!

Get The Most Out Of Your Omega-3 Supplement
Over 31,000 studies prove without a doubt that Omega-3s make a huge difference when it comes to your heart, your joints, brain, mood, skin, pregnancy and more.*
Thousands of our happy customers confirm this to be true.
But a bunch of pills – even OmegaVia’s carefully formulated ones – won’t work miracles for your health on their own.
This is something we emphasize over and over again.
Because we want you to see RESULTS!
We don’t want you to buy a bunch of fish oil pills from us. And then be frustrated that you’re not seeing the changes you were hoping for.
To see the full power of Omega-3 supplementation, most people need to make some changes in their diet. Here’s why:
Omega-3s work because they balance out the surplus of Omega-6 fatty acids most of us get through our diet.
This may seem a little complicated. But it’s important that you get this so you can really get the most out of your fish oil supplement.
See, Omega-3 fatty acids and Omega-6 fatty acids are both important for health. But they compete with each other in your body.
They can’t do much in your body unless they can “plug in” to special receptors or chemical reactions. And they compete for these “plug-in” spots.
Think of it like musical chairs … If you have too much Omega-6s in your diet, they take all the seats. The Omega-3s are kicked out of the game. So your body can’t fully benefit from the Omega-3s.
Most of us get about 20 Omega-6 fatty acids to every 1 omega-3 fatty acid in our diet. You can see why the Omega-6s get all the spots … And the Omega-3s can barely get a toe in!
As a result, your hormones, your immune system, your nervous system, your brain … your entire body gets thrown out of whack.*
For optimal health, you need the make the game more even. With closer to the same amount of Omega-3s and Omega-6s.
When you supplement with concentrated Omega-3s like OmegaVia, you start to bring these two fats back into balance. And your whole body gets back in gear.
But it’s incredibly hard to restore this balance of omega fatty acids without cutting down on the Omega-6 fatty acids you’re getting in your diet.
How Do You Change Your Diet So These Omega-3s Work Better?
- Cut down on the Omega-6s: Cut out corn and soy bean oil – the biggest sources of Omega-6 fatty acids. You can replace them with olive oil, butter and coconut oil which don’t have much - if any - Omega-6 fatty acids in them.
- Beef up on more Omega-3s from wild-caught seafood as well as meat, eggs and dairy from grassfed animals.
- If triglycerides are a main concern of yours, we also suggest you reduce sugars and starches. Your body turns these into triglycerides, boosting your numbers.
These tactics are so critical – we cannot underscore them enough.
Neglecting this part of the strategy for using Omega-3s for health is almost a guarantee for less-than-exciting results. This has been borne out by research in a number of studies.
In contrast, when you start to bring the balance back, something else happens …
You start to see the big, beautiful changes you were hoping for!
Of course all of us have different metabolisms, different genetics and certainly different diets.
But for most of the people who buy our products, they’ve seen the best results when they’ve combined Omega-3 supplements with a change in diet and increase in exercise.
So go get started with a good Omega-3 supplement. And get the most out of it with a few dietary shifts!
It might sound fishy (had to say it) but this stuff is GREAT! Can’t tell you how much it has helped me, and I help my heart on top of it. Has dramatically assisted me with mood. Winning!! Oh, and there is NO fish odor, taste or burping! Might be a coincidence but I am feeling better than I was. I also have reduced sugar and a few other things in my diet. I know I feel better than I did.*
I have been taking your Omega-3 for a while. And I have been following a diet low in Omega-6. This combo has really helped. (My mother & aunt both have done the same) When I added a low carb diet into the mix, my joints felt great! The combination of Omega-3 and the diet you recommend is truly a miracle!*

Fish Oil & Your Doctor
Please consult your doctor if you wish to take fish oil during pregnancy, nursing or while on any medication. Ask your doctor about Omega-3 supplements if you have a blood clotting disorder.
