Hello Ni Za, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
The two supplements are different supplements. Calcium Lactate is a supplement containing calcium, a mineral that is very important in maintaining the normal functions of the human body, especially for maintaining bone density and formation. Pregnant women need at least 1000 mg of calcium per day and in general, this calcium requirement cannot be fulfilled from food or drink alone, therefore in general, calcium supplementation will be given to pregnant women. The body can only absorb 500 mg of calcium at a time, therefore the dose of calcium supplementation is usually separated and taken 2 times per day.
Supplements containing fish oil are given to pregnant women to meet their DHA and EPA needs. DHA and EPA are needed to support the brain development and vision of the baby in the womb. DHA / EPA cannot be produced by the body and can only be obtained from food alone. The best sources of DHA / EPA are fish and seafood, but because eating fish in pregnant women should be limited to only 2 times per week, DHA / EPA needs to be given from other sources such as supplements.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
