hi dear, dha can be found in small fishes and walnuts. plus you should also take egg whites and milk. as you are already taking protinex, you will be covered, no need of additional drugs....

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

hello...
Mama Protinex is a protein rich supplement that contains high quality protein and DHA, which is essential for physical and brain development of the foetus..
so no need of extra and seperate dha drug... once go through the ingredients on the product..

As per the details per serving of mama protinex contains 20mg of DHA but i found at many places online that 200mg of DHA required per day. Furthermore eggs and fish are difficult to make part of meal daily for me as its cooking smell triggers nausea.

D. kaur - there are soo many other foods which contain dha and we are unknowingly having that in our diet too... soo no need of extra supplement for dha
