Pregnancy and Maternity

As parents, we must lay the proper foundations for the correct development of our children. This means covering the needs that they require to have a good social, psychological and physiological maturity. SOW helps you in the visual and cerebral development of your baby.

Visual Development

Supplementing pregnant women with omega-3 is beneficial because a higher concentration of this acid in the fetus improves the visual development of the child. These fatty acids are nutrients found in high concentrations in the retina, the part of the eye responsible for transforming light energy into nerve energy. The deficiency of omega-3 fatty acids during pregnancy can result in a lower visual acuity of the newborn. Its consumption is also beneficial in women who are breastfeeding, because omega-3 is transmitted to the newborn through breast milk.

Brain development

Docosahexaenoic (DHA) is a polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acid found throughout the body. It is one of the main structural fats in the constitution of neuronal membranes, especially at the cerebral level, and is present in approximately 30 to 40% of the phospholipids of the gray matter of the cerebral cortex. Our body does not produce DHA therefore it is necessary to incorporate it through diet or with food supplements. The third trimester of fetal development and in the first two years of life of the human being, the brain presents a rapid growth and it is at that moment when the omega-3 requirements rise considerably. Alpha Linolenic (ALA), the omega-3 present in chia seeds, is the precursor of DHA, that is, our body creates DHA from this fatty acid. Therefore, if you are pregnant or breast-feeding, consuming foods or supplements containing ALA and DHA will help your baby's fetal and neuronal development.
