The research around the cognitive benefits of these nutrients is so compelling. I am so excited to see them together in a single product, as they work synergistically together.”

Why Omega-3+ is needed.

The right nutrients in bioavailable forms.

We are thoughtful about every ingredient.

Omega-3 DHA

400mg (2 capsules) / 800mg (4 capsules) from algae from algae
DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is a long-chain Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid that is abundant in fish. We source ours from sustainable microalgae, a sustainable alternative to fish, and is actually where fish get their Omega-3 from. The American Pregnancy Association’s recommended 300mg per day of DHA, but research many women need or can benefit from more.

Choline

100mg (2 capsules) / 200mg (4 capsules) as VitaCholine™, Vidaspheres® Beadlet Technology as VitaCholine™, Vidaspheres® Beadlet Technology
Our Prenatal Multi is the only one to match the full RDA for nursing women. Other research suggests daily Choline intake above 930mg is optimal. On average, pregnant mamas consume just 320mg of Choline in their diet (eggs are the most common dietary source), so extra Choline in our Omega-3 capsules helps to fully fill in what's needed. Most prenatal vitamins contain 55mg of Choline or less as it’s a bulky nutrient that can be difficult to formulate with. Choline Bitartrate is an optimal form for providing a concentrated dose that’s easily absorbed. Our Prenatal Multi is the only one to match the full RDA for nursing women.

Easy to Swallow!

I've never been able to swallow other fish oil / DHA pills. I've tried everything! The only thing that ever came close was the Nordic Naturals Ultra Minis. But when I choked on those the other day (scary!), I was lucky I found Needed and that these capsules are thin, narrow and easy to swallow. I love that they are highly absorbable. I would highly recommend these!!!

Amazing Omegas!

I tested my Omega-3 levels through Needed and learned that my levels were very low! I have since started taking the larger dose (4 caps per day) and love them! These are vegan/sourced from algae, third party tested, and have an added boost of Choline. I love that they also contain Lutein and Zeaxanthin, nutrients that I don't get anywhere else. They are super easy to take with and without food. My husband even enjoys taking them. I also struggle with acne and have noticed clearer skin since starting the Omegas. Will definitely continue using these through pregnancy and postpartum!

Ready to talk to your health practitioner
about Omega-3+ and Needed?

What is Omega-3?
Omega-3 is critical fat for before, during, and after pregnancy. You cannot make Omega-3, and must obtain it from diet or supplementation. There are three main types of Omega-3, ALA, DHA, and EPA. ALA is found in plants like chia seeds, flax seeds, and walnuts. ALA needs to be converted into the DHA and EPA forms of Omega-3 in order to be used by the body. This conversion process is highly inefficient (often less than 1%), so it is important for mom and baby to consume DHA and EPA directly. Fatty fish and supplements are the two reliable dietary sources. Fish do not make the DHA and EPA, but instead bioaccumulate them from eating algae.
How do I know if I need Omega-3?
Our testing kit can help. Many are surprised to find that even if they eat a lot of salmon and sardines, their Omega-3 levels are lower than optimal. Our’s were! And, research shows that up to 95% of women are deficient. Even if you are not deficient, the more Omega-3 in your diet the better you will feel, especially when you are building baby as ⅓ of his or her brain is made of Omega-3.
