What are 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?

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.

|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.|
|Q:||Could I give my child "Omega 3 for Kids" with the "Children's Chewable Multivits"?|
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.
|Q:||what age can children start taking the omega fish oils? thanks|
We recommend this product for children aged between 5-14 years of age.
|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|
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|
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?|
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?|
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.
|Q:||Is this product chewable or is the child expected to swallow whole?|
This product is a small capsule designed to be easy for children to swallow. It is not chewable.
