PROLACTIA® has been specially formulated to combine the properties of all the ingredients found in its composition.In addition to stimulating lactation, thanks to fenugreek, iodine and malt extract, PROLACTIA® is a source of omega 3 (EPA and DHA) and vitamin D for the maintenance of bones and good health, not to mention the cholesterol lowering effects of red yeast rice.
Omega-3 and omega-6 are classified as essential fatty acids because the human body absolutely needs them, but cannot produce them itself, so it must find them in the diet or as supplements. EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid are important, but DHA is especially important during pregnancy and during the early stages of the life of the child. After delivery, the level of DHA may remain low because breastfeeding transfers reserves of DHA in breast milk for the baby and for the development of his brain.
