Third Trimester Vitamins And Supplements

Zita West supplements contain everything you need to support your body’s nutritional needs throughout the third trimester of pregnancy. 

From week 28-40 you have a crucial window of opportunity to help your baby’s brain begin to develop to its full potential:

The brain needs a distinct set of nutrients, quite different to the rest of the body’s requirements. Her or his bones mainly need calcium and muscles are powered by protein, but the brain needs fats. More than 60% of the brain will be composed of fatty acids, but your baby cannot make essential fatty acids (EFAs) herself or himself – they must come from you.

Fats are needed for the smooth and rapid transmission of signals between nerve cells. There are basically two types that are crucial to brain function: linoleum acid (omega-6) and alpha linolenic acid (omega-3). One of the crucial forms of omega-3 is docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which is important for cognitive brain function, vision and heart health, and may also increase your baby’s birth weight.

Choline is another ‘smart fat’ found in the brain that is needed for the production of cell membranes and is linked to the memory and learning centres of the brain. It can be found in a number of foods, but the richest source is egg yolk.

It is advisable for all pregnant women to think about taking an omega-3 supplement as it can be hard to receive adequate levels needed for you baby’s brain development just through your diet.
