You need these nutrients when you are breastfeeding

Being a new mother is wonderful. Maybe the best feeling in the world. But even in all the happiness it is also demanding. And tiring. You have gone through a physically hard period, and it is important to give your body adequate rest and nutrients to recover.

Iodine, iron and folate

Did you know that fully breastfeeding mothers have an increased energy requirement of approximately 500 calories every single day? The recommendations for nutrients are actually higher for breastfeeding than for pregnant women. To make sure that both mother and baby get sufficient nutrition, you may need nutritional supplements to meet your body’s needs.

An important nutrient to get in during the breastfeeding period is Omega 3. A specially adapted Omega 3 that is filtered for heavy metals and environmental toxins is important, in addition to a high content of DPA and EPA fatty acids. This contributes to the normal development of the child’s heart, brain and vision.

Iodine is another important nutrient for the child’s growth and development of the nervous system, and several women in Norway are deficient in this. During the breastfeeding period, there is also a focus on getting enough iron and calcium, which contribute to the development of the child’s cognitive development, skeleton and teeth.

During the pregnancy you are good at taking care of yourself and the baby in your belly, but after birth it can be difficult to find the balance between caring for the baby and taking care of your own health and well-being. It is important to remember that when the mother is well, the child is also well.

“You are in a completely new life situation with little sleep and little time for everyday things such as cooking healthy. Then it is difficult to get good and proper food. When you breastfeed, the nutrients go out by the mother’s milk, so there is automatically an increased need for nutrients to take care of yourself and your child,” explains pharmacist Rose Truong, who has worked in a pharmacy for 10 years.

Strict requirements

Understandably, several people are skeptical about nutritional supplements. The Lifeline Care series has been developed by Norwegian doctors and pharmacists, and is sold exclusively in pharmacies.

In 2008, Lifeline Care became the first complete dietary supplement for pregnant and breastfeeding women, and we want to continue and make life a little easier in an already hectic everyday life.

There are strict requirements for a dietary supplement to be approved for sale in pharmacies.

Quality assurance is comprehensive and is carried out by a specialist department. The entire process of approving a product takes approximately 6 months, and it is recommended to buy nutritional supplements at a pharmacy as you have the opportunity to get professional advice from pharmacy staff.
