Prenate Pixie®: A Small Prescription Prenatal Vitamin with DHA
November 19, 2015
In recent years, DHA has become a standard nutrient in the majority of prenatal vita- mins. But many of the vitamins on the market that contain DHA are large and hard to swallow. Prenate Pixie® is a small-sized prescription prenatal vitamin with DHA.
Why Should I Take a Prenatal Vitamin with DHA?
The third trimester and the first several years of life are important times for brain development. For infants and babies, DHA is the main building block for brain growth and functional development.2 A recent study showed that the visual acuity of a healthy, full-term, formula-fed infant is increased when his or her formula includes DHA.2
Expecting moms need DHA, too. In adults, DHA helps with brain function and mental alertness. In 2004, the FDA, along with other nutritional advocacy organizations, announced that there is scientific evidence that DHA, along with other omega-3 fatty acids, also may be beneficial in the reduction of coronary heart disease (CHD).1 DHA helps reduce triglycerides in the bloodstream,and high triglycerides are a contributing factor to arterial blockages and CHD.2
Unfortunately, if a pregnant woman does not get enough DHA, it is likely that her baby also will have a deficiency in DHA.
