Nutritional supplements’ ideal for expectant mums’
Expectant mothers have been urged to incorporate nutritional supplements into their diets in order to safeguard their health and that of their unborn child.
According to Peter Clough, technical director at Efamol, the key steps pregnant women should take to stay healthy and aid their child’s development are to eat a healthy and balanced diet full of all the necessary nutrients and supplement where necessary.
He pointed out that mothers that take the right nutritional supplements are likely to give birth to healthier babies that have better mental and physical development and lower incidences of allergies.
Taking supplements such as Omega-3 during pregnancy helps to improve the health of mothers themselves, and has been linked to a lower likelihood of post-natal depression.
"Fish oil supplements provide the omega-3 fatty acids, and particularly DHA, which is lacking in today’s western diets," Mr Clough said.
"Many well conducted trials have demonstrated that increasing intake of these nutrients in pregnancy can have major benefits for both the mother and baby."
Women were also advised to remove all harmful substances from their diets as soon as they are about to start trying to conceive a child.
"Stop smoking, ideally as soon as you start planning to have a baby, significantly reduce or cut out altogether alcohol, and eat a healthy balanced diet supplementing where necessary to get some of the important nutrients you may be lacking," Mr Clough said.
There are a wide range of nutritional supplements women can take to maintain optimum health throughout their pregnancy, including Fushi’s Total Pregnancy Complex, which contains all the important micronutrients both mother and child need.
The supplement also comes with a range of other compounds that have maximum health benefits during pregnancy, including phytonutrients and amino acids, which have been proven to keep mothers and babies in excellent pre and post-natal health.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
