Omega-3 rich food not only makes the fetus smarter but also prevents early labor and reduces pre-eclampsia… for mother.

Omega-3 is better known in 2 types of fatty acid: EPA and DHA. EPA supports the development of the immune, cardiovascular system, while DHA is good for the brain, eyes, and the central nervous system.

Besides, a sufficient amount of omega-3 will help the body produce prostaglandin. This hormone plays an important role in adjusting blood pressure, prevent haemophilia, allergies… for the mother. Depending on each type of fatty acid in diets, the prostaglandin amount can be produced more or less. However, if the amount of prostaglandin is unbalanced, pregnant women can easily catch a disease. Prostaglandin also has other benefits for the health, such as preventing heart disease, increasing the fetal awareness… IT also helps to develop the nervous system and vision for the baby.

However, many researches show that the diets of pregnant women usually lack omega-3. It’s not just that, as most of the amount of omega-3 concentrates on the development of the nervous system of the fetus, the omega-3 used to fully develop other organs is not enough.Omega-3 also helps to prevent early labor, pre-eclampsia and increase the weight for the mom and fetus. Besides, omega-3 deficiency also relates to the increase of depression in mothers.
