Möller’s Omega 3 cod liver oil is safe and recommended for kids in order to bring in the necessary essential fatty acids Omega-3 and vitamins A, D and E in the body.
- Omega-3 essential fatty acids are especially important for the optimal development of the brain, sight and nervous system.
- Vitamin D is vital for the development of the immune system, bone development, teeth and regulating the use of calcium in the cells.
The efficiency of Omega-3 fatty acids is proven by over 15,000 scientific articles. In particular, the cod liver oil can be safely used during pregnancy, breast-feeding and in infants. Just one daily dose of 2,5ml of Möller’s cod liver oil replenishes the daily needs for essential Omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins D, A and E.
Children grow and develop rapidly and are in constant physical and mental changes. To help make this process correct, it is important that taking Möller’s cod liver oil becomes a daily routine (for example, take your daily Möller’s cod liver oil dose before going to the kindergarten/school).
With the regular use of Möller’s cod liver oil and essential fatty acids Omega-3 in children, the benefits of harmonious growth and development are great.
- Optimal growth and development of the brain and nervous system. Optimal brain development and brain function affects learning, memory and concentration.
- Improving the behavior of children with neurological developmental disorders.
Importantly, a large number of studies have shown that omega-3 supplements can reduce the symptoms of ADHD. Thus, a Japanese study conducted by Hamazaki and Hirayama of Tokyo (2016) examined a group of children aged 6-12 years with ADHD who received higher doses of DHA (514 mg daily) and EPA (100 mg daily), over a period of 2 months. The results of that study shows reduction in aggression compared to a controled group that is noted by both teachers and parents. Studies of Milte CM (Nutrition, 2012), Perera H (J Child Neurol, 2012), and Bloch MH (J AM Acad Child Adolesc Psychiatry, 2011) shows improved attention in these children, and reduced hyperactivity, impulsivity and aggression.
- Better cognitive achievement. In 2010 Kim from the University of Gothenburg analyzed how the amount of consumed fish affects adolescents cognitive functions and academic achievement. The study found that consuming fish more often, once or twice a week is significantly correlated with higher cognitive performance compared with those who ate less than once a week.
- Less colds during the winter months.
- Beneficial effects on optimal functional maturation of the retina and visual cortex, DHA accounts for 60-80% of all polyunsaturated acids in the structure of retinal photoreceptors, with a role in activating rhodopsin and enhancing visual acuity.
- Significantly lower risk for type 1 diabetes – chronic childhood autoimmune disease associated with prostaglandin metabolism abnormalities.
- The development of healthy bones and teeth is especially important for an active and healthy child.
- The child is constantly exposed to small bacteria and viruses when in contact with other children. A good immune system helps to resist colds and stay healthy.
