Fish and other sources of seafood are an excellent source of ultra healthy omega-3 fatty acids as well as other beneficial nutrients, such as vitamin D and selenium. Research shows that getting plenty of omega-3 fatty acids helps to reduce inflammation, keep our heart healthy, boost brain performance and improve mood. Getting plenty of omega-3s during pregnancy is particularly important for optimal development of a baby’s brain and nervous system.
