Motivational Monday #27 – Biomega Jr.
Hi, I’m Sarah DeCiccio and I am extremely excited to share with you, every week, some healthy tips and tricks to help you and your family make some simple easy changes to achieve optimal health.
A lot of parents know that omega-3s are important for their children’s development, which is why many give their babies formula that is fortified with omega-3 fatty acids. But when children switch to solid food, it may be more difficult for them to get enough omega-3s, especially if they don’t like fish. In fact, nearly 80 per cent of the children in North America are estimated to be deficient in omega-3s.
According to Dr. Whittaker, children with behavioural problems, usually have “lower red blood cell levels of omega-3 fatty acids. And studies show that supplements containing high doses of DHA, EPA, and omega-6 fats normalize fatty acid levels and improve attention, hyperactivity and impulsivity—without any of the adverse effects of Ritalin.
Fish oil is also being explored as a treatment for autism and Asperger’s syndrome, with promising results. A pilot study revealed that when kids with these conditions were given essential fatty acid supplements, their language and learning skills improved.”
As a mother of two, I want my children to lead healthy lives and with school back in, I want them to be focused in class. Let’s be honest, it’s difficult to get omega 3’s into a child’s diet. When Usana came out with a pure fish oil for kids that did not have the fishy taste and was fun to eat, I bought it right away for my children. They love it!
Here are some health basics on Usana’s Biomega Jr. (fish oil) for kids.
It supplies omega-3 fatty acids: DHA and EPA
Helps support the development of the brain, eyes, and nerves in children
Provides 1,000 IU of vitamin D to help in the development and maintenance of healthy bones and teeth
The fish oil used to make BiOmega Jr. is sourced from small, deep, cold-water fish that are less likely to contain toxins. Additionally, it is purified using a double molecular distillation process, which removes toxins, heavy metals, and PCBs.
It comes in a miniature yogurt tube and inside is a creamy gel that has a delicious orange, pineapple flavour that kids love without the fishy after taste. It also provides excellent bioavailability, meaning the body will recognize the fish oil as “real nutrients” and absorb it.
It does not require refrigeration, which makes it convenient to take at home or on-the-go. Simply tear off the top and squeeze BiOmega Jr. directly into your mouth, into yogurt, directly on to fruit, or in a smoothie. There are many possibilities.
It is fine to store BiOmega Jr. in the refrigerator. However, freezing and heating should be avoided, as it may cause the fish oil to separate.
Those looking for an omega-3 supplement for their children should consider BiOmega Jr.
If you are an adult and have trouble swallowing those giant fish oil capsules the BiOmega Jr. can be used by adults. The dosage of omega-3 fatty acids in a packet of BiOmega Jr. is similar to an adult capsule of Biomega for an adult. If you want your kids to try the Biomega Jr., feel free to contact me.
Cheers to your health!
