Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for a baby’s brain development. Most people choose to meet their daily requirements by consuming salmon or fish oil supplements. The mercury content in fish tends to make most pregnant women skeptical, so chia is a great alternative. For such a tiny seed, chia is quite high in omega-3 fatty acids.

It is possible that some people, for reasons unknown, just can't tolerate Noni juice. Advocates of Morinda citrifolia place these folks in the minority and continue to focus on the health benefits of the drink.
