As a new school year approaches, many students, parents, and teachers find themselves preparing for the unknown. Typically, this is the time of year that parents and their kids would be getting ready to hit the stores to shop for new back-to-school supplies. But let’s face it, the way we live has changed. With distance learning and homeschooling on the rise, preparing for school this year will be different for many families. As we all learn new ways to do school, work, visit, shop—and be—everyone is trying to balance what they need to stay healthy and whole. Did you know that omega-3 can help? It’s more important than ever to make sure you get the daily nutrition you need to be healthy and successful.
Omega-3 for Kids at Home or School
In the classroom or at home, the back-to-school season presents a welcome opportunity for kids and parents to get back to healthy routines. After the summer break, we’ll focus on helping our toddlers, teens, and kids of all ages thrive in their studies. Nordic Naturals’ line of children’s omega-3 products delivers fresh, pure, and safe omega-3s in age-appropriate amounts. The fish oil is in highly bioavailable forms that maximize effectiveness whether taken in tablets, soft gels, gummies, or liquid.
Decades of research have established the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) in supporting:
- children’s brain health
- neurological and cognitive function
- social development
These are just what students need to get the most out of the school year.
Children’s DHA – Brain Health, Vision, Cognition
DHA is one omega-3 found in fish and fish oil that is especially beneficial for healthy child development. In early childhood, DHA is particularly important because the brain and eyes rely heavily on it for proper growth. DHA is essential for normal brain and eye functions throughout life. It is the principal fatty acid comprising the brain’s cerebral cortex. This is important to support memory and learning, membrane fluidity, and the development of hormone-like compounds. Interestingly, DHA is also found within the eye. Here it supports the development, function, and maintenance of the eye’s highly active, light-receiving cells. These, in turn, support healthy vision.
There is strong evidence that DHA contributes to overall cognitive health. Research consistently shows that omega-3 fish oil is associated with higher cognitive performance in infants, toddlers, and children. We observe improvements in their intelligence scores. For all these reasons, omega-3 DHA is an excellent addition to your child’s nutritional repertoire.
Sustainable, Triglyceride-Form, and Tasty
All Nordic Naturals omega-3 fish oils are sustainably sourced, impeccably fresh, and carefully purified. Our quality control begins in the ocean. We choose sustainable fish species, naturally low in toxins and high in omega-3 fats. The fish are caught from amongst the cleanest waters in the world. The brand utilizes an oxygen-free, nitrogen-rich processing environment to protect against oxidation that can cause fishy smell and taste. All of our omega-3 formulas are clean and fresh with no fishy burps or aftertaste. What child wants those? Thanks to meticulously controlled molecular distillation, all fish oils are gently purified of heavy metals and other potentially harmful contaminants often found in fish.
Importantly, the omega-3 fish oils are delivered in the triglyceride molecular form. This is the same form that omega-3s are naturally found in fish. We do this for superior absorption and effectiveness. Triglyceride-form fish oils require more manufacturing steps and take longer to produce. However, for this company, there’s no other way.
Shop tasty omega-3 fish oil supplements for children in a form your girl or boy will love: gummies, chewable tablets, liquid. or soft gels.
No matter what school looks like this year, you can rely on top-quality omega-3 nutrients to help your students make the most of every day.
