If you yourself are taking omega 3 supplements to meet your omega 3 needs, you may be wondering if omega 3 is also a welcome addition for your child.
It certainly is!
Omega 3 fatty acids are essential nutrients for both you and your child.
Your body does not make them itself, so you will need to get enough of them through diet.
Why omega 3 for my child?
Omega 3 has several positive effects for your child. It is good for the heart, vision (staying sharp) and brain function.
As much as 20% of the fat in our brains is omega 3 DHA; it is an important building block for brains (as calcium is for bones).
Omega 3 can be found in fish, seafood and green leafy vegetables, among others. Usually just those products that are not so popular among children.
The very fish that are popular among children, such as kibbeling, fish sticks, tilapia and pangasius, contain hardly any omega 3 fatty acids. Does your child not like herring, salmon, mackerel or sardines?
Then omega 3 for your child in the form of liquid fish oil or fish oil capsules is a good idea. n
Are you vegetarian or prefer not to have fish? Then algae oil is the best option for replacement.
Which omega 3 for children?
Do you want to give extra omega 3 to your children? Then fish oil or algae oil is a smart choice, as it is packed with omega 3. However, some "urban legends" tend to circulate about fish oil.
It would taste and smell foul and cause nasty belching. If you buy old, low-quality fish oil, you may have to deal with this.
However, this is most definitely not the case with Arctic Blue's. Ours is fresh and has a low Totox value. This prevents burping and also ensures our distinctive mild taste.
Moreover, due to its quality and freshness, there is no need to add artificial flavors, preservatives, dyes or sweeteners to the fish oil.
We even give a 100%-No-Object-Guarantee! This also applies to our natural variant: algae oil. The omega 3 for children that is extracted from fish actually gets it from algae.
So we actually get the omega 3 directly from the source. Our algae oil has the VEGAN label which guarantees 100% that no animal products are used in the making.
How does omega 3 work for children?
Our products with omega 3 have the right concentration for children:
a high dose of EPA and DHA omega 3 and vitamin D specifically for children.
You can start taking our supplements as early as 1 year of age. Because of the mild taste, you can easily stir our oils with omega 3 for children into cold dishes such as yogurt, custard, shakes and smoothies.
And thanks to added orange flavoring from real oranges and a rosemary extract from real rosemary leaves, the taste of omega 3 supplements for children is especially appealing.
How much omega 3 for children per day?
The recommended dose of omega 3 for children is 5 ml per day for children 3 years and older.
Half a dose of omega 3 is sufficient (2.5 ml) for children aged 1 or 2 years. One bottle of liquid MSC Fish Oil contains 30 times the dosage of omega 3 for children.
Arctic Blue does not use plastic bottles for its liquid fish oil, only glass bottles.
We are therefore assured that no hormone-disrupting substances can migrate from the plastic into the supplements.
Our capsules are also of high quality and extra small for children, making them very easy to swallow.
Omega 3: small capsules or drops for your child?
At Arctic Blue you can buy special omega 3 for children: MSC Fish Oil Child, also called "Brain Building Blocks. This pure Arctic MSC fish oil also contains vitamin D.
Vitamin D is good for maintaining strong bones, muscles and teeth and ensures good immunity. Does your child eat little fish and often play indoors?
Then the skin receives less sunlight and extra vitamin D is recommended.
We sell fish oil and algae oil with omega 3 as small capsules or as "omega 3 drops" for your child. The nice thing about our omega 3 drops is that with the measuring spoon, your child can easily take the right dosage himself or with your help.
Because the oil is liquid, you can easily halve the dosage for a younger child. With capsules, this is not possible.
A child under 3 does not need a full capsule, so omega 3 drops are preferred for a child under 3.
