It has been designed to help protect both partners’ DNA from oxidative damage during preconception as well as to support normal fertility and healthy sperm production. Vital DHA also plays a critical role in the development of a baby’s brain during pregnancy and early infancy, so is recommended to take during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

  • Triglyceride form for increased absorption
  • Ultra-pure distillation

description

Why you need it:

  • Vital DHA is specifically formulated to provide essential nutrients, including Omega-3 fatty acids (EFA's) and Zinc, crucial for the development of healthy cells, body tissue, and the baby's brain during pregnancy and early infancy.
  • The supplement is designed to support both men and women during preconception, pregnancy, and breastfeeding. It addresses the increased nutritional needs during these phases, ensuring that partners' DNA is protected from oxidative damage, supporting fertility, and healthy sperm production.
  • Highlighting the reliance of babies on the mother's supply of EFAs emphasises the importance of meeting the daily intake through diet or supplements, especially for those who may not regularly consume oily fish.

Why we love it:

  • The molecular distillation process ensures that Vital DHA is ultra-pure and free of known contaminants, including Mercury. This commitment to purity aligns with the product's goal of supporting the health of both partners and the developing baby.
  • The inclusion of Omega-3 EFA's and Zinc in the formulation provides comprehensive support for both male and female fertility. This recognises the importance of nutritional balance in both partners for optimal reproductive health.
  • The recommendation to start supplementation at any time during pregnancy, even if not considered before conception, demonstrates the product's flexibility. This adaptability caters to various situations, allowing individuals to benefit from the supplement's advantages regardless of when they begin.

What's inside (and why):

  • Zinc: Essential for various bodily functions, including cell division, cognitive function, and fatty acid metabolism. Its inclusion addresses potential deficiencies often found in women with fertility problems and long-term contraceptive pill users. For men, it is crucial for sperm development.
  • Omega-3 (DHA): Plays a pivotal role in protecting DNA from oxidative damage during preconception, supporting normal fertility, and contributing to healthy sperm production. It is also essential for the structural development of healthy cell membranes, body tissue, and the baby's brain during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
  • The acknowledgment of the critical role of DHA during pregnancy and breastfeeding, with the baby relying on the mother's reserves, emphasises the supplement's importance throughout these phases, whether started before conception or during pregnancy.

I was looking for a multi vitamin to aid my healing after having my third child. I was so scared of hair loss after delivery. In my previous experiences I lost a lot of hair while using other brands for breastfeeding multivitamins but I still lost a lot of hair and felt tired most of the times and my sleeping patterns were awful. I searched in Google for other brands and that’s when I found site west, I read some reviews and decided to purchase one for a month but then I subscribed for nearly 6 months. I took the breastfeeding and omega 3, 6 vitamins while breastfeeding my LO. It helped me massively with postpartum hair loss, I mean I lost nearly little hair. My hair, skin and nails looked amazing and healthy. While I’m a mother of three kids I would think without taking these supplements I would’ve been more tired. But comparing my experiences after having three kids and taking different postpartum supplement this is by far the best supplement I had. I could not thank you enough Zita West for the amazing experience. I will definitely recommend it to my other mum friends and family. And I would say the price is great!

Great service with prompt delivery. I particularly love Zita’s DHA omega oil capsules as I don’t ever get the fish tasting reflux I’ve had with most other brands. Since taking vitamin D I’ve had more energy and feel better in myself.

Customer

Excellent. The products themselves I had the pre conception premium vitamins and the omega DHA. We have just completed our first IVF cycle and have 6 grade A and 6 grade C embryos gone in the freezer ready for a transfer as soon as possible and perhaps these supplements helped contribute to the quality!

The Mac Daddy supplements

After about a 2 year pregnancy journey, with several loses, we tried Zita West. Thinking it was worth a try. Within a few months my wife became pregnant, after only 2 months. Though we suffered a loss she fell instantly pregnant the following month, we are sitting here at almost 22 weeks and cannot wait to meet our first born.
We refer to Zita West as the "Mac Daddy" of fertility supplements. Cannot recommend enough.

Frequently asked

Why do I need to take Vital DHA if I am taking Vitafem or pregnancy plan?

Vitafem and Pregnancy Plan are excellent multivitamins and minerals but they don’t contain the essential fatty acids you need. By taking Vital DHA alongside them, you will help to ensure you are optimally nourished when you get pregnant.

What are the benefits of taking both Vitafem or pregnancy plan and Vital DHA?

VitalDHA will help with hormone balance and egg production for conception as well as increasing your reserves of DHA to the benefit of your growing baby when you become pregnant.

Why should I take a supplement when I can take DHA from fatty fish?

It is sensible to incorporate fatty fish into your diet if you can. However, you would have to eat an awful lot of it to get the equivalent dosages delivered by the supplement. Unfortunately, as you may be aware, the FSA (Food Standards Agency) has recently had to warn women who are pregnant, or who are trying to get pregnant, to restrict their consumption of fresh tuna (the most popular of the oily fishes in the modern diet) due to concerns over the high levels of mercury found in some tuna fished from contaminated waters. VitalDHA does not contain any tuna but is produced from mixed, deep-sea, oily fish (using a process which removes any possible pollutants) and is biochemically screened for extra safety too.

How long in advance should I be taking Vital DHA?

Zita West recommend that both men and women should ideally start to take a DHA supplement three to four months in advance of trying to conceive; but it is still worthwhile starting at any time prior to conception, or during pregnancy, for women. 8 out of 10 women enter pregnancy deficient in this essential fatty acid. It is important to take some form of DHA supplementation so that you can build your reserves for your developing baby. DHA supplementation has an important role to play for men too. It is thought that over 40% of cases of sub-fertility or infertility are now due to male factor problems (such as low quality sperm or low sperm motility) where deficiencies in DHA may be a contributory influence.

Why is DHA going to be the next Folic Acid?

The benefits of taking folic acid or another equivalent form of Folate are now widely known, particularly its role in minimising the chance of anomalies with babies’ spines. And DHA is starting to get lots of recognition and press as well. A good maternal supply of DHA is crucial throughout pregnancy, particularly during the first 12-16 weeks of pregnancy when your baby’s brain and nervous systems are starting to develop. It’s important during the third trimester too (28 – 40 weeks) as this is when maximum brain development occurs. 70% of the nourishment your baby consumes during this period goes towards it.

Is there an RDA for DHA?

No, but research suggests 700 – 1000mg per day is what is needed to maximise this vital nutrient for your baby.

Is it possible to overdose on DHA?

It is best to maintain the recommended dosage on the product. 2 capsules provides 450mg of DHA per day.

How do I know DHA is safe to use during pregnancy?

Health experts around the world now agree on the importance of DHA both during pregnancy and the post-natal period.

I have read about fish oil being contaminated in the sea.

Vital DHA is produced from the oils of mixed, deep-sea fish, sourced from clean waters using only dolphin friendly techniques to harvest the fish. The product is made from highly refined oils (using a process which removes any possible pollutants) and is biochemically screened for extra safety too, so there is no risk of contamination. Given the concerns that have been raised about excess levels of mercury in fresh tuna and the risks this could pose for women who are trying to get pregnant or who are pregnant, there is all the more reason to consider using a good DHA supplement to cover your nutritional needs during this critical period. Does not contain any tuna oil.

I am very forgetful in pregnancy. Can DHA help?

Your growing baby cannot manufacture his or her own DHA, so he or she has to rely on your diet and your sources. In all likelihood this will be from your richest source – your brain. So far as we know there is no research to link memory loss directly with depleted levels of DHA, but it certainly seems possible that DHA deficiency may be an underlying cause.
