.. I want to ask whether taking fish oil supplements is good for women who are newly pregnant?

1 Answer:

Hi Gitayon. In general, fish oil is recommended for pregnant women where it is said that it has a good impact on the mother and fetus. The benefits mentioned are that it contains DHA which helps brain development, helps the development of the baby's eyes and helps prevent upper respiratory tract disease at birth later. However, giving fish oil supplementation itself still requires further research even though the reason for giving supplements is the risk of mercury contained in fish, especially sea fish and the amount of fish consumption that is less in mothers.

There are things that need to be considered in choosing fish oil, namely not choosing fish oil that comes from the liver of fish, such as cod liver oil, because it contains the compound retinol, which is another form of vitamin A, which can actually harm pregnancy. In addition, avoid consuming fish oil which contains vitamin A itself.

It's still better to consume fish oil that comes from the fish itself, in this case the body of the fish, such as salmon, sardines. However, avoid consuming fish in cans because there is a possibility that nutrients have been lost due to the production process.

Consult your doctor for more information. Next about fish oil. Hopefully helpful, and thank you. Greetings, Dr. Alyssa
