The prenatal period is a time like no other in the course of human growth and development. It is a time when parental lifestyle choices can mean the difference between a family’s life of joy and normal development or a life of heartbreak. It is a time when, “70% of the total energy to the fetus goes to development of the brain, which mainly consists of marine fat.” It also is a time when the abysmally low intake of marine-sourced lipids in our diet, especially omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids, is further reduced by the mother’s sharing her nutrient supply with the fetus. Yet, only a small handful of physicians recommend omega 3 supplements during pregnancy.

With the incidence of obesity, insulin resistance, and diabetes exploding in this country, Dr. Mary-Elizabeth Patti, Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School writes in the March 2006 edition of Diabetes: “The bottom line is that if you don't have a delivery of enough nutrients from the mother to the baby, the baby’s pancreatic cells will be programmed abnormally.” Dr. Patti added that the effect doesn't show up until adolescence or adulthood. “Toward the completion of six months, the low birth weight babies started showing very high blood glucose levels, as much as that of a person with full-blown diabetes.”

It is well known that the #1 predictor of developmental disabilities, such as AD/HD, Autism, and many others, is “low birth weight”. Almost no one knows that the #2 predictor is being a “male child”. The study below documents many of the causal factors and outlines what research shows to be safe, effective, and inexpensive steps toward risk prevention.

“Prescriptive prenatal supplements”? Virtually all doctors prescribe them. Why are they “prescriptive”? Is there some kind of dangerous, controlled substance (food) in them? Why are virtually all of them no longer made by a pharmaceutical company? Why are virtually all of these supplements not even of U.S. Pharmaceutical grade? Who really makes them? Find the answers to these questions and many others in the prenatal study (abstract). Please contact us for the complete study.
