Omega 3 for Kids

 

Omega 3 fish oils are rich in the essential fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which support the general growth and development of children.

    Brain Development: DHA an essential building block for developing cell membranes and supports the normal formation of signal pathways and other neurological systems. As a result, it plays a key role in the development of a heathy brain.

      Learning and Behaviour: An increasing body of research shows that children with low levels of essential fatty acids may also be at higher risk of language delays and behavioural problems.

        Vision: DHA also contributes to the normal development of the eye and therefore promotes healthy vision.

         

        How much should my child take?

         

        The Department of Health advise that children eat two portions of fresh fish per week. However, a survey conducted in 2013 showed that 9 out of 10 children ate fish less than twice a week, while 1 in 10 never ate fish at all. While diet should always be the priority, a high-quality supplement can help to safeguard you child’s omega 3 intake.

         

        High Quality Children’s Fish Oil

         

        Fish oil supplements are a popular, effective and convenient source of beneficial fatty acids, particularly for children who dislike the taste of fish. At Simply Supplements, our fish oil is molecularly distilled and compliant with the Council for Responsible Nutrition, which ensures that they are consistently of the highest possible quality. Each 500mg capsule provides suitable levels of EPA and DHA which are effective and safe for children as young as 5 years old. These small soft-gel capsules are easy for children to swallow, but can also be pierced and mixed into food if preferred.

          Q: How pure are these capsules? Do they contain any traces of heavy metals like Mercury? I would be grateful if you could email a copy of the analysis on these.
          A: Our fish oils are all independently tested to ensure that they comply with the safety regulations regarding contamination by heavy metals such as mercury. We will request a certificate of analysis from our supplier and will email this to the address provided as soon as possible.
        • 5th February 2014 - Ali Rashid
          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 3’s 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.

          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.

        • 22nd April 2012 - Weinprl
          Q: Hi, Is it chewable for the kids?
          A:

           No, these are in gelatin capsule form.

        • 18th October 2011 - Helen
          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.
