Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) are a type of fat required by the body to establish and maintain overall well-being. They are called ‘essential’ because the human body is unable to synthesize them – they need to be acquired daily through diet. Omega-3s have been shown to help support cognitive health, brain function, cardiovascular health, and the healthy development of brain, eyes and nerves in children up to 12 years of age.1 Fortunately, Omegas are today available in a variety of fun formats with kid-friendly tastes like the NEW Ultimate Fish Oil for Kids in Bubble gum flavour.
Omegessentials contains primarily the triglyceride form of EPA and DHA for optimal absorption and assimilation.
