What are Omega 3 fish oils?

Omega 3 fish oils are rich in the essential fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Essential fatty acids are not naturally produced by the body and so need to be obtained through diet or supplementation. Worryingly, findings suggest that 9 out of 10 children do not consume adequate levels of fish on a weekly basis. A high quality fish oil supplement can offer a convenient way to help children top up on omega 3 fish oils.
 

Benefits of Omega 3 for children

Studies show that omega 3 fish oils can support the general growth and development of children. In particular, they are believed to support proper brain function, concentration levels, learning and behaviour. It is important to ensure that children receive adequate levels of these fish oils from pregnancy through to their teenage years. Research shows that children with low levels of essential fatty acids may also be at higher risk of language delays and behavioural problems. 
 

Why choose Simply Supplements Omega 3 for Kids?

You may find it difficult to ensure that your child gets sufficient omega 3 in their diets as many children dont like the strong taste of oily fish. Our high quality 500mg fish oil supplement has been carefully developed to provide 90mg EPA and 60mg DHA, which are ideally suited for children aged between 5-14 years old.

At Simply Supplements we ensure that our fish oils are of the highest quality and purity in order to provide your child with the best possible support. We choose to use the advanced molecular distillation process for the concentration and purification of our fish oils, which are packed with beneficial omega 3s and completely free from toxins. 
 

Ingredients:

500mg of Fish Oil Providing: Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) 90mg, Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) 60mg, Vitamin E 10mg (83.3% RDA), Gelatin, Glycerin, Purified Water.

 

Directions:

Take one to four capsules daily as a food supplement or as directed by a healthcare professional. Store in a cool dry place and out of reach of children. Do not use if the seal is broken.

 

Cautions:

If your child is taking any prescription medication, has a medical condition or you have specific concerns about the suitability of any of our products in relation to these, you should always consult your GP or Pharmacist prior to taking supplements. Pregnant or lactating women should consult a GP before taking supplements. Do not exceed the recommended daily dosage. Supplements should not be taken as a substitute for a varied diet.

    Seem to improve concentration 
    Olla Bigsby, Swindon
    I have two young sons, aged 7 and 5, who take two of your Omega 3 capsules each morning to support their development. Neither are particularly keen on the taste of fish and I used to worry that they weren't getting enough. Since taking these capsules, my husband and I have noticed an improvement in their (particularly our younger sons) ability to concentrate when reading and sitting down to complete homework. The capsules are great value for money and are small enough for the boys to swallow.

    My Children Like taking them 
    Daniel Birtles, Stockport
    My children, surprisingly, like taking your omega 3, I thought they would be stubborn and not want to take them. I'm not sure if it's because they like the small capsule or because it doesn't leave a nasty after taste. I'm just glad they are getting the nutrients required at their age. Excellent product and great value too.

    I got these within a matter of days and was most impressed thank you for the speed of the delivery, I'm unsure if I can give my children more than 1 of these a day, is there a reccomended daily amount they should have? would love it if they could have more as it helps them to concentrate at school.

    Q: Is the gelatin used bovine source? If so does it by any chance meet food law requirements on BSE, and is it certified both Halal and Kosher?
    A: The gelatin in our fish oil capsules is beef gelatin. It is halal friendly and kosher inspection service certified. At Simply Supplements we ensure that our fish oils are of the highest quality and purity in order to provide your child with the best possible support. We choose to use the advanced molecular distillation process for the concentration and purification of our fish oils, which are packed with beneficial omega 3s and completely free from toxins.

    Q: Does it matter at what time of day you take these capsules? And how long do you need to be taking them to see any effects? (Like improved concentration)
    A: Unless otherwise stated on the packaging, fat-soluble substances including fish oils, should be taken immediately after food. Fish oils are ideally taken with food containing some fat, i.e. milk, as it helps increase absorption and reduce after taste.
  • 11th November 2013 - Maria
    Q: Could I give my child "Omega 3 for Kids" with the "Children's Chewable Multivits"?
    A:

    Providing that your child does not exceed the recommended dosage of either product, Omega 3 fish oils and Multivitamins are perfectly safe to take together. If you do have concerns, we would advise that you speak to your GP or pharmacist.

  • 9th March 2013 - vanessa
    Q: what age can children start taking the omega fish oils? thanks
    A:

     We recommend this product for children aged between 5-14 years of age.

  • 27th September 2012 - Merle Youngs
    Q: Hi, This may sound silly, but my 15yr daughter has trouble swallowing large capsules. Would taking 2 of the kids omega 500g be equivalent to taking one 1000g capsule? Thanks again, Merle
    A:

    Yes, taking two of the smaller capsules would be equivalent to one of the larger 1000mg capsules. With your daughter also being over the age of 14, she may take the adults Omega 3 500mg (S155) which are also smaller capsules than the 1000mg strength.

    Q: hi i have just purchsed these omega 3 tablet. i have a 7 and a 10 year old. it recommends to take 1 to 4 tablets a day. Please can you advise me how many they should take each. thank you
    A:

    Providing that the RDA of the product is not exceeded, it would be at your discretion on how many they take a day. We would obviously advise no more than 4 a day, and generally with supplements we would suggest starting on the lower dosage. If you feel that the effects are not quite strong enough, then there is the option of taking more.

    Q: Will you be doing a chewable version of Omega for kids in the future?
    A:

    We do supply a chewable multivitamin for children, but we would certainly consider a chewable Omega 3 in the future.

    Q: Hi, Is it chewable for the kids?

     No, these are in gelatin capsule form.

    Q: it is reccomended that kids with behaviour probs take a dose of 450-500g of EPA/DHA per day. Therefore is it safe to take 3 of these capsules per day as yours only contain 150g of EPA/DHA?
    A:

    We would not advise exceeding the RDA of any of our products. Doing so would have to be at each individuals own discretion. If you have any concerns we would advise that you consult your GP.

     

  • 26th November 2009 - Sarah
    Q: Is this product chewable or is the child expected to swallow whole?
    A:

     This product is a small capsule designed to be easy for children to swallow. It is not chewable.
