Support Your Child's Development With A Quality Fish Oil
Why Fish Oil Not Plant Oil?
Plant oils (including nuts, grains and seeds) do not contain DHA or EPA. Instead, they contain ALA which has an extremely low conversion to DHA in the human body (<10% dietary ALA conversion).1 On the other hand, dietary DHA and EPA, primarily found in fish and seafood, is well absorbed and readily used by the body.
Most children are deficient in DHA and EPA, two vital Omega-3 essential fatty acids found in fish oil. These vital nutrients are crucial building blocks of a child’s growth and development, playing key roles in brain health and immunity.
Omega 3/DHA Children’s is an exclusive New Zealand formula containing 350 mg of DHA per serve, making it a convenient way to ensure your child gets adequate levels of essential Omega 3 fatty acids daily.
Maximize your child’s intellectual potential with Omega 3
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is the most abundant fatty acid in the human brain, making up about 15 to 20 percent of the brain’s frontal cortex.2 It is also a key building block required for healthy brain growth and maturation.
Children require a regular amount of DHA daily. Not only to ensure proper brain maturation, but to also boost overall brain function.3 Research is now proving the importance of regular Omega 3 supplementation, showing improvement in learning abilities in children including reading, memory and behavior,4 with another study showing that early introduction to DHA may even increase intelligence in later years.5
Natural support for behavioral disorders
Many school-aged children suffer from common childhood developmental and behavioral disorders. Regular omega supplementation from fish oil is shown to support attention and behavior afflictions and may help with hyperactivity and stereotypy in children.6,7
Supplement for better sleep in children
The effect of essential fatty acids on neurological health may even extend to sleep quality, with researchers believing that DHA promotes better sleep due to its effect on melatonin production, with higher levels of DHA relating to increased levels of melatonin.8
New research from the University of Oxford in the UK has found an association between higher levels of Omega 3 DHA consumption in children and a better night’s sleep,9 showing that children aged 7 to 9 who took omega 3 (algae-derived) supplements slept nearly an hour longer each night, with fewer waking episodes.
Support healthy inflammation management
What is NOT in our Omega 3 supplements
Our Omega 3/DHA Children’s does not contain sugar, colorings, flavorings, gluten, dairy, soy, peanut or shellfish.
Omega 3 fatty acids have been shown to display a unique ability to reduce the generation of cytokines from inflammatory cells.10 Daily consumption of fish oil may be beneficial for children in helping to manage inflammation on the skin such as rashes, and promote healthy breathing and airways.11,12
