There are two crucial nutrients needed for an ideal pregnancy and healthy baby that get forgotten – the ‘dynamic duo’ – DHA and Choline.

We don’t want you or your baby to miss out on all the essential nutrients needed to support you through pregnancy and breastfeeding. That’s why we’ve created our Ovitae DHA and Choline as an addition to our existing prenatal supplement.


Unfortunately, most prenatal supplements don’t include these vital nutrients. Why? Besides basing their formulas on outdated research, choline and DHA are large nutrients, making it difficult to include in a multivitamin that’s easy to swallow.

Firstly, Choline…

While not a vitamin or a mineral, choline is now known to be a crucial nutrient for your baby’s brain development. It’s now recognised as being equally as important as folic acid for the prevention of neural tube defects. In fact, taking choline with folic acid can give your baby even greater protection against birth defects.

Choline has many jobs in the body – it’s one of the building blocks for your baby’s cells; it transports fat around the body; creates our genes and helps our nervous system to function properly. This incredible nutrient is also important for placental health and the transfer of nutrients to your growing baby.

So, what about DHA?

DHA (docosahexanoic acid) is a type of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid that is incredibly important for fertility, pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Studies show it can help increase your chances of conceiving (both natural conception and IVF) by reducing oxidative stress and inflammation to your reproductive organs and improving the health of your eggs. This is great news, especially for those over 35 who want to start or grow their family later in life!

There is also some evidence that DHA may reduce symptoms for those with Endometriosis and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).

Now, you may already be aware of the important role DHA plays in heart health, brain function and overall physical and mental health. And it’s no less important when it comes to pregnancy. DHA plays a critical role in the development of baby’s brain, eyes and nervous system.

Choline is a vital nutrient for baby’s brain development and should be considered as important as folic acid in preventing neural tube defects. It plays multiple roles in the body, such as cell formation, fat transportation, and gene creation, and is crucial for placental health and nutrient transfer. Insufficient choline intake during pregnancy can have long-term consequences for the baby, including cognitive development issues and an increased risk of fatty liver disease, neurological disorders, and cardiovascular disease.

DHA is a crucial omega-3 fatty acid that greatly benefits fertility, pregnancy, and breastfeeding. It enhances conception chances, particularly for individuals over 35, by reducing oxidative stress and inflammation, improving egg health. Additionally, DHA aids in the development of the baby’s brain, eyes, and nervous system, while also preventing preterm birth, low birth weight, allergies, and disease risks, and reducing the risk of postpartum depression for mothers.

Vitamin D helps your body to absorb calcium and phosphorus. It’s also an important nutrient for optimal immune function, maintaining healthy skin and muscle strength. Vitamin D deficiency in pregnancy is a risk factor for developing osteoporosis later in life.

Zinc deficiency during pregnancy is associated with an increased risk of pregnancy complications, including preeclampsia and preterm delivery.

It’s also associated with fetal abnormalities, including congenital issues and growth retardation.
