Last January 24th the results of the PLENUFAR (The Nutrition Education Program for Pharmacists) campaign were presented. It was centered this year on nutrition education for women during the preconception, pregnancy and breastfeeding stages. During this presentation I mentioned how important omega-3 is during these stages and its importance for proper functioning of the brain and retina.  Therefore it is recommended that all those women who want to get pregnant make sure they have an adequate intake of this nutrient in order to ensure good overall health and adequate reserves of DHA.
