Fish in fish – a natural solution
Each Omega 3 Kids capsule contains 1.000 mg of fish oil in a stable, natural triglyceride form with a high content of the essential omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA. The capsules are made from fish gelatin, ensuring that the fish oil is contained in its natural “wrapping”. This is a great advantage to those who do not wish to consume gelatin of bovine or swine origin.
Omega 3 Kids is an economical fish oil preparation for regular everyday consumption. In contrast to the free fatty acids in Bio-Marine Plus, which should always be swallowed whole to avoid the free fatty acids to sting in the throat. Also they cost more to manufacture. The triglyceride-based fish oil in Bio-Marine Natural caters to those who want to take a fish oil supplement every single day. This is an advantage for families with children who are interested in high quality, but not in a fish oil product that represents a large part of the household budget.
What are omega-3 fatty acids?
Omega-3 fatty acids is a group of essential, polyunsaturated fatty acids that are primarily found in fish, namely oily fish like herring, salmon, and mackerel. The two most important omega-3 fatty acids are eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Way back in the late 1970’s two Danish doctors, Bang and Dyerberg, demonstrated why Greenland Eskimos, because of their large consumption of fish and sea mammals, generally had better health than the Danish population. Kids who don’t eat fish can with an advantage take a supplement of omega-3 fatty acids to ensure a sufficient intake of these beneficial compounds. In fact, it is ideal if a diet provides the right balance between omega-3 and omega-6 (a group of fatty acids found in plants). Experts believe it is ideal to ingest omega-3 and omega-6 in a 1:4 ratio.
EPA and DHA have several positive health benefits. For instance, a 200 mg per day intake of DHA contributes to normal visual development of infants up to 12 months of age. 250 mg of DHA each day contributes to maintaining normal vision and brain function. If you intake 250 mg in a mix of EPA and DHA it will support a normal heart function. The mentioned levels correspond with 2 Omega 3 Kids capsules daily.
In higher amount two grams of EPA/DHA daily help to maintain normal triglyceride levels in the bloodstream and three grams of EPA/DHA help to maintain normal blood pressure.
Fish oil for those with a refined taste
Some children dislike the taste of fish and may therefore benefit from using Bio-Marine Natural that has a pleasant lemon flavor. The capsules can either be swallowed whole or chewed. The lemon flavor also helps prevent unpleasant “fish burps” that may occur during the day.
