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.
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. It is also a key building block required for healthy brain growth and maturation.
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.
