NEOLACT MUM is a food supplement with DHA, folic acid, iodine, iron and other vitamins and minerals, developed especially for women who are in the preconception phase, pregnant or breastfeeding.
The supplemental intake of folic acid increases the level of maternal folate. A low amount of maternal folate status is a risk factor for neural tube defects in the developing fetus. This beneficial effect is obtained with a daily supplemental folic acid intake of 400 μg for at least one month before and up to three months after conception.
Maternal intake of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) contributes to the normal development of the brain and eyes of the fetus and breastfed baby. The beneficial effect can be obtained with a daily intake of DHA 200 mg in addition to the recommended daily intake for omega-3 fatty acids for adults.
