Omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) play a vital role in the healthy development and functioning of the brain and central nervous system in infants and children.
Docosahexaenoic acid [DHA, 22:6(n 3)] is the most abundant omega 3 PUFA in the
human brain, and it supports the normal development of the brain, eyes, and nerves.
Eicosapentaenoic acid [EPA, 20:5(n 3)] is the major precursor for eicosanoid metabolism, and it regulates neuronal and immune processes by influencing gene expression.
Numerous human observational and clinical trials support a link between childhood
neurodevelopmental and immune disorders with a deficiency of dietary EPA and
DHA, as well as omega 6:omega 3 PUFA imbalances. Currently, <10% of children meet recommended intakes of EPA+DHA. Therefore, supplementation of DHA as well as EPA is critical to support optimal neurocognitive, neurobehavioral, and immune function throughout childhood.
120 chewable softgels
Children 1–13 years old and adolescents 14–18 years old: Take 1 softgel four times daily or as directed by your health care practitioner.
