What can you do to get your brain healthy for the school year? Nordic Naturals is a good place to start. As parents we want our kids to do well in school. We send them to school with healthy snacks and lunch items. We make sure they get a good nights sleep. But the thing we might over look is the basic need for Omega-3 fats on a daily basis. By providing kids with Omega-3 fats increases the health and wellness they need to excel in school all year long.
The vast amount of research available today on the benefits of fish oil for children might interest your readers. Fish oil has been shown to improve children’s cognitive development and prevent disease. Lower levels of omega-3 fatty acids are associated with behavioral disorders including ADD and ADHD. Omega-3s have also been found to have therapeutic benefits on childhood depression. This fatty acid is essential for brain and eye development before birth, and continues to be an essential fat for cognitive development and disease prevention throughout childhood.

An essential fat means it must be obtained through diet because the body cannot make it from other nutrients. The warnings for pregnant woman and small children to limit fish consumption due to high mercury and PCB levels present in many fish species, presents a problem for the need to have omega-3’s daily. Recently fish oil supplements have come under scrutiny for containing impropriate levels of PCBs. Educating consumers on what to look for in their supplements can ultimately clear up confusion and fear about fish oil supplements.

Available in strawberry-flavored liquid and chewable soft gels
Kids everywhere love Nordic Naturals strawberry-flavored Children’s DHA. Made entirely from Arctic cod liver oil, these products are rich in the omega-3 DHA. DHA is essential for the proper development of the brain, eyes, and nervous and immune systems.* Easily swallowed or chewed by children over three, Children’s DHA also contains healthy levels of 100% natural vitamins A and D.
To be honest, they were not a huge fan of the chewable soft gels (these can be chewed or swallowed), but they LOVE the gummies! What kid wouldn’t? They took their Nordic Natural Gummy Vitamin without any complaints of fishy taste… they actually asked for more. As for the Children’s DHA, I would recommend it for any child over 3 who can swallow the pills.
Nordic Naturals has products for everyone, even your pets! A few months ago I went to the doctor and he recommended taking fish oil for my cholesterol. Now, I am NOT a fan of fishy tasting products. I am a frugal shopper, so I bought some generic fish oil…BAD choice. Not only are they HUGE pills, but they have that fishy after taste. I was thrilled the Nordic Naturals sent some samples for me to try. I really like the Omega-3 Effervescent. This is a water-soluble drink mix rich in the omega-3s EPA and DHA. You don’t even know you are drinking FISH OIL…it has a creamy orange taste.
