      Comments about Spectrum Essentials PreNatal DHA, 60 ea:

      I really like this product, however was disappointed to find out upon receiving the product that the capsule is NOT vegetarian and contains gelatin. I think it's great that the DHA is not fish oil based, but wish the capsule didn't contain gelatin. I know they make another DHA that is completely vegetarian friendly (as I have taken it with previous pregnancies), but drugstore.com does not carry it.

          I am not an expecting parent, but this has a higher DHA content than the normal Spectrum DHA product - so far have been very happy with it!

          Not sure if this has EPA

                Comments about Spectrum Essentials PreNatal DHA, 60 ea:

                First, if they go through the trouble to get the DHA from a non-fish source, why not use a gelatin free capsule, so that this could be a completely vegetarian product?

                Second, and more importantly, my doctor told me that DHA cannot cross the placenta unless it is paired with EPA. The online supplement facts say that there is a small amount of EPA in each capsule, but the facts on the actual bottle when it arrivied did not list EPA. This makes me concerned that I have been wasting my money taking these pills. I am going to look for something that has a higher content of EPA and that states the content of EPA on the bottle, to ensure that the DHA is crossing the placenta and getting to my baby.

                      I have been using this product since trying to conceive. My daughter is now 1 month and I am continuing to use it because I am breastfeeding. I did a lot of research before settling on this DHA supplement. First, I like that the DHA is non-fish sourced. Second, it is a good value. It costs a couple dollars less per 60 day supply than Expecta (Spectrum prenatal DHA is a 60 day supply and Expecta is 30 day so multiply the cost of Expecta by 2 and you come out at at LEAST 2 dollars more for Expecta).

                        I have been taking this DHA supplement since I was 7 month pregnant. I was suspecious about its effect. She was able to turn her head to sounds at born. Now my daughter is almost 3 months old. I notice that she has very good eyes and develops well. She can recognize me and other people in the household well. Most of all, she is happy and laughs all the time.
