In brief: Good nutrition

The digestive enzymes may help you with food absorption but are broken down by your intestinal lining before they enter your bloodstream in significant quantities ( though some are present in the blood in low levels in healthy adults (high levels could indicate a medical condition)).
Your baby's brain will thank you for the dha. Thank you for breast feeding your baby!
