Omega 3 for children is essential. And the source is important too. Supplement ingredients should always come from good quality pure fish oil.
Fish oil omega 3 supplements are good for kids for many reasons. To begin with, fish oil with EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) can help make your child smarter and better behaved.
In an extensive British study, children with behavior, social and learning problems who took omega 3 fish oil supplements (not flaxseed oil) for only six months tested more than a year higher in reading skills and better than six months in spelling. They also had significant behavior improvements (less ADHD) with none of the side effects associated with commonly prescribed drugs such as Adderall, Concerta, Dexadrine and Ritalin.
For instance, Elliot, a nine year old participating in the omega 3 study, was falling behind in his schoolwork, had little interest in studying and would crash on the sofa in front of the TV when he came home from school. He’s now read all the Harry Potter books and heads for the library after school. His mother, Sheila says, “Elliot’s reading jumped 18 months. He’s just a lot more interested in everything. He’s even developed an interest in classical music.”
This is not unusual. Advanced brain development in children who take high quality fish oil supplements has been my experience too. I’ve had many friends and clients who began squeezing salmon oil capsules into their baby’s first solid food at six months. As the children got older they would actually chew the capsules. Needless to say, they all grew up with a love for fish – especially salmon. But, even more importantly, most began speaking and reading early with highly developed vocabularies.
Salmon is the highest source of EPA and DHA available. By the way, even though flaxseed is an omega 3 oil, it contains none of the essential EPA and DHA necessary. Besides being great “brain food,” the omega 3 factors in salmon oil have also been linked to the prevention of juvenile diabetes, as well as the development of better vision and hearing in children.
In order to have smarter, healthier kids, be sure to add omega 3 fish oil to their daily supplement program. For best results, I highly recommend Salmon Oil Plus with UHPO3.
Salmon Oil Plus with UHPO3 is the purest (zero toxicity), most complete and balanced fish oil supplement on the market. It has all 8 omega 3 family members vitally important to optimum human nutrition (DHA, DPA, EPA, ETA, ETA (3), SDA and ALA) and has a long, safe and successful history of use with children. It’s also helped millions of adults to lower cholesterol, have optimal functioning of the heart, brain, nerves, eyes, skin and joints and relieve the painful inflammation of injuries and arthritis.
