Head Back to School with these Kid-Friendly Essentials--Omega-3s Boost Memory and Learning in Children

When it comes to academics, every parent wants their child to be a top performer. As children head back to school, it’s important for parents to learn what the latest science has uncovered regarding the remarkable power of omega-3 essential fatty acids. Better grades,1 memory and learning ability,2 and even a reduction in ADHD symptoms3 all have been scientifically linked to adequate intake of the omega-3s EPA and DHA.

Considered essential for optimal health, eicosapentaeoic acid (EPA) and docosahexenoic acid (DHA) are omega-3 essential fatty acids that cannot be manufactured by the body, and therefore must be consumed through diet or supplementation. The vast majority of children are not getting enough omega-3s because they do not regularly consume enough cold-water fish.4


Research shows that a high-quality, purified fish oil supplement is the safest, most reliable source of the EPA and DHA children require for healthy physical and mental development.5,6  When finding supplements for children, taste and formulation are critical. If products are tasty and easy-to-chew or swallow, children will enjoy taking them.


Dr. Christopher Mohr, noted U.S. fitness and nutritional expert, believes parents should view omega-3 supplements in the same way they view multivitamins. “The benefits received from obtaining adequate levels of omega-3 fats go on forever,” Mohr says. “I believe they should be as ‘mainstream’ as a simple multivitamin.”

Nordic Naturals®, a global leader in omega-3s, gives parents a safe, pure, and easy way to get all the benefits of omega-3s and multivitamins into their children’s diets with a variety of tasty liquid and chewable products. Each is naturally fruit-flavoured and completely free from any fishy taste or aftertaste.
