How much DHA do I need?
The answer depends on several factors, including your age, weight, and diet.
The World Association of Perinatal Medicine, along with other recognized health organizations, recommend 200 mg of DHA daily for pregnant and breastfeeding moms. After your baby is born, Health Canada recommends by 24 months of age, children have 2 servings of oily fish a week.
Getting enough DHA from food alone can be difficult. Research shows, on average, many of us are not meeting the recommended intake levels for seafood and could be missing key nutrients that play an important role in our overall health.
