Before and after pregnancy

Mumomega was developed to help ensure that you and your baby will receive high grade DHA and AA supplementation throughout the birth cycle. Each 750mg capsule will deliver 300mg of DHA. If you find it difficult to include an adequate amount of Essential Fatty Acids in your diet, take 1 capsule of mumomega per day with food.

Before conception
Everyone needs essential fatty acids (EFAs), but if you're planning to have a baby, it's even more important you make sure you are getting enough of these essential nutrients. If you are not getting adequate EFAs through your diet, taking just 1 capsule a day of mumomega will ensure that you are maintaining your intake. Taking essential fatty acids is still important if this is not your first pregnancy, to ensure you continue to maintain your essential fatty acid levels.

During pregnancy
After conception your body still needs essential fatty acids and as an expectant mother we recommend taking a minimum of 1 capsule per day to ensure you maintain your level of EFAs. The baby's demands for DHA and AA are higher during the 3rd trimester, which is a time of rapid brain development. The baby obtains its essential fatty acids from mum's stores, so an adequate intake is essential for her health too!

After delivery
Mother and baby's requirement for structural fatty acids continues even after delivery, so you can keep taking mumomega. If you're breastfeeding and struggling to get an adequate intake of EFAs through your diet, then continuing to supplement during this time helps ensure adequate levels of Essential Fatty Acids (DHA and AA) to your new born baby through your breast milk. Once breastfeeding finishes, you can maintain essential fatty acid supplementation with Equazen eye q baby.

 

The oils in mumomega
Equazen is a specialist supplier of Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids made from high-grade marine and botanical oils. mumomega provides long-chain fatty acids and natural antioxidants, but the formulation is otherwise free of any additives, flavourings or synthetic compounds.

They only use natural-form oils, keeping them in the form of triglycerides. Synthetic ethyl esters are not considered, as these substances are in a form that is less suitable for the body to absorb. The Omega-3 fish oil has been concentrated, but the Equazen process involves deconstructing the fatty acids, and then reassembling them into natural form triglycerides.

Pharmaceutical-grade Omega-3 Fish Oil

  • - The source of our Omega-3 fish oil is tuna, which is harvested at specific times of the year to provide a particularly high level of DHA
  • - The oil is concentrated using molecular distillation, leaving it in a free fatty acid form
  • - The oil is then chilled and filtered, allowing removal of any excess saturated fats, and resulting in a pure clear oil
  • - The free essential fatty acids are recombined into triglycerides, the most bio-available form, allowing maximum efficacy and absorption
  • - The oil is 70% Omega-3 essential fatty acids, the majority being DHA, a key structural essential fatty acid that is part of the membranes of brain cells
  • - The oil has an elevated level of AA, a structural fatty acid that, like DHA, is an important building block for brain cells
  • - The oil has an elevated level of DPA, a 'link' fatty acid between EPA and DHA

Analysis at an independent laboratory proves that mumomega, is in full compliance with stringent EU/WHO regulations with regards to environmental toxins such as dioxins, PCBs and mercury.


The mumomega formulation
Our challenge in making mumomega was to create a supplement that delivered a specific formulation of essential fatty acids for pregnant and lactating mothers and their babies.

The essential fatty acids we included in the formulation, are:
- DHA, or Docosahexaenoic Acid. This is an Omega-3 essential fatty acid that is a component in the structure of cell membranes of the eye and brain. In fact, up to 30% of the dry weight of the brain is made up of Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids, which typically comes from oily fish.
- AA, or Arachidonic Acid. This is an Omega-6 essential fatty acid that can play both structural and functional roles in the brain. In the diet, AA is usually derived from meat and dairy products, as well as cereals.
- EPA, or Eicosapentaenoic Acid. Another Omega-3 fatty acid,  EPA is thought to play more of a prominent role in the function of the established brain than the structural fatty acid DHA.
- GLA, or Gamma Linolenic Acid. This Omega-6 essential fatty acid is known to also have anti-inflammatory actions, and may help to regulate hormonal balance.

So how do you get all of these nutrients into one formulation?
They opted for an oil specification that used high-grade marine and botanical oils to deliver the key Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids. The Omega-3 source has been modified to concentrate the DHA to a very high level, as well as elevated amounts of AA. The Omega-6 source is virgin evening primrose oil. In terms of intake, they recommend that pregnant and lactating women take at least 300 mg of DHA a day. They also suggest infants take at least 100 mg of DHA a day. That’s why they developed Equazen eye q baby.
