— Our Pledge of Integrity —
The nutritional demands placed on a mother during pregnancy are enormous. Supplementation with many nutrients, including omega fatty acids and essential fatty acids, may be helpful to both fetus and mother. Country Life recognized the unique needs during pregnancy and introduced the first Omega product specifically for Prenatal Women.
Baby Care Prenatal Omega 3-6-9 offers over 600 mg of Omega fatty acids, including a triple blend of DHA, EPA and GLA. It also includes vitamin B12, calcium, and phosphorus for additional nutritional support.
The Omega fatty acids contained in this product are derived from fish and borage seed oil. The fish oil, derived from anchovy, sardine, mackerel, herring, salmon, and tuna, has been processed using molecular distillation to ensure its purity. The borage seed oil was also 100% expeller pressed without hexane or harsh chemicals. Country Life's Baby Care Prenatal Omega 3-6-9 is made according to high quality and exacting standards.
And understanding the sensitive palate of the expectant mother, each softgel is natural lemon flavored - no fishy taste, and also includes ginger root extract and peppermint oil.

Whether for your developing fetus or yourself, Omega-3 fatty acids can help in many ways.
Research with Omega-3 fatty acids supplementation has shown promise in many areas, including:
- Cardiovascular Health
- Brain Health
- Skin Health
- Immune Health
The body needs eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). To make these, the body requires alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). This is an omega-3 essential fatty acid that is converted in the body to the fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Linoleic acid (LA) is an omega-6 fatty acid that also complements the diet.
When fatty acids such as EPA are present in the body, it becomes a precursor for hormone-like agents known as eicosanoids. These help regulate fundamental processes such as cell division and growth, blood clotting, muscle activity, secretion of digestive juices and hormones, and movement of substances like calcium into and out of cells.
The omega-3 fatty acid DHA is the major polyunsaturated fatty acid found in the brain and is important for brain function. Brain cells, as well as many other cells, in the body are rich in DHA, which suggests that this fatty acid is involved in brain health.
People with diets low in fat or heavy in saturated, hydrogenated, or trans-fat may be deficient in valuable fatty acids. In a convenient way to supplement your (and your growing fetus) diet with the omega fatty acids and linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid that it may be missing.

So far, so good. No mercury in these pills, which is important. The pills are a little big, but they are broken up over 2 servings. I guess I would never know if they're filled with vegetable oil, but I hope the nutrients are making their way to my baby.
