I’m a mum with a very active toddler, who often has me up a few times a night. To say I’m sleep deprived is an understatement. Before takingSimone
NeuroSpark I started some days asking “how am I going to get through today?”. My brain was ‘foggy’. Since taking NeuroSpark I notice my
concentration is better, my energy levels are higher and I just feel “better” in myself. NeuroSpark definitely helps me get through the toughest of days.
Both you and your developing baby need plenty of omega-3 DHA
For pregnant or breast-feeding women foggy thinking and feeling low may be symptoms of an inadequate level of omega-3 DHA available to your brain. While you are pregnant the foetus will ensure it has sufficient omega-3 DHA in order to survive and develop1 by ‘stealing’ it from your brain.Therefore it is important to boost the amount of omega-3 DHA in your diet especially in the 3rd trimester and in the early months of breast-feeding when the baby’s brain is developing and
growing at a phenomenal rate.
Maintain breast milk levels of omega-3 DHA
Scientists have found breast milk levels of omega-3 DHA dropped 35% over 14years and many breast feeding mothers give their baby more omega-3 DHA than they are getting in their diet each day2. Not surprisingly it can take 4 years to return omega-3 DHA levels in the blood to pre-pregnancy levels so with subsequent babies there is even greater risk of you having low levels3. Research studies have found breast-fed babies actually accumulate more omega-3 DHA in their brains than babies fed milk formula without omega-3 DHA4.
NeuroSpark® provides dietary omega-3 DHA in easy-to-swallow capsules without any fishy aftertaste.

I've been taking NeuroSpark for years, but when I fell pregnant I started to notice my thinking wasn't as sharp and foggy-brain was creeping in. Then I increased my dose to three tablets a day like the bottle suggests and I felt better almost immediately. I wasn't struggling for 'that' word any more and I felt like I could easily stay on top of the day to day at work again.Erin
I took Neurospark throughout my pregnancy and continue to take it daily while breastfeeding. I absolutely love Neurospark. I found that compared to my first pregnancy where I was lethargic and struggled to think clearly at work, my concentration was improved and I wasn’t as exhausted. I used to take a generic fish oil brand which made me feel sick and had a fishy after taste. I can really see the difference taking Neurospark, I am so glad I found it.Katrina
