Omega-3 fatty acids have a number of critical functions in young and developing brains. Studies indicate that omega-3 fatty acids may not only help improve children's learning, memory, mood, sleep quality, and vision, but also help prevent mood disorders and help reduce ADHD and even asthma symptoms.

Product Notes:

Commonly associated with fish oils (and/or their source, the oily fish which relatively few children relish eating as often as needed), omega-3 essential fatty acids are crucial for proper eye and brain development and more. But you may find it difficult trying to get your children to eat enough fish to achieve the recommended levels, or you may be wary of their mercury content. Your kids might also find other supplementary forms of Omega-3s to be unpalatable or difficult to swallow. These chewable softgels can give you the peace of mind that they're getting what they need without it being a constant struggle to get them to take it.

Similarly, vitamin D has many important roles, including its better known ones of helping the immune system and helping bones, teeth, and muscles develop, but there are also Vitamin D receptors in the brain, where it appears to be needed for normal brain development, and where a deficiency is linked to a number of disorders including autism, diabetes, and depression. Thus, like several other supplement companies, KidStar Nutrients sees the wisdom in combining these two types of ingredients for optimal health.

This synergistic combination is delivered here in small softgels which many kids will have no problem swallowing whole just as they are, but they can also be chewed, if desired. To help facilitate that, they have been flavoured with an intriguing combination of natural lemon, blueberry, and vanilla. They're naturally sweetened with Monk Fruit (which is exponentially sweeter than conventional sugar, so only a tiny amount is needed in each capsule).

The Omega-3s are sourced from bountiful types of smaller fish, whose shorter lifespans reduce their likelihood of accumulating higher levels of heavy metals like bigger fish can (plus every batch is tested for those, as well), and supply a much higher concentration of the DHA subtype (which is associated with cognitive support) than of EPA (which is associated with reducing inflammation), which is most appropriate for children.

Naming Note: KidStar Omega 3 DHA+Vitamin D3 may also go by the name 'Omega 3 Blast Off' in some markets.
