Looking for fish oil for kids? Nutri West's Complete Children's DHA/EPA capsules are formulated to provide children with the omega-3 fatty acids EPA‚ DHA‚ ALA‚ and GLA.
This essential fatty acid is also referred to as Eicosapentaenoic acid. Like other omega-3 fatty acids‚ it's found primarily in the skin of fish that generally reside in cold waters. EPA is well known for possibly providing support for cardiovascular health. In addition‚ this essential fatty acid may help alleviate some pain and swelling.
Short for Docosahexaenoic acid‚ DHA is another essential fatty acid found in cold water fish. This omega-3 fatty acid may help in the development of the eyes and nerve. Additionally‚ DHA may‚ like EPA‚ help support cardiovascular health.
Unlike EPA and DHA‚ ALA (alpha-linolenic acid) is an omega-3 fatty acid derived from seeds‚ nuts‚ and vegetable oils. It may feature many of the same potential benefits of EPA and DHA‚ namely the cardiovascular ones. It's also possible that ALA can act as a precursor to EPA‚ allowing our body to actually produce EPA on it's own. But the results are mixed on that.
The reason why a fish oil for kids like Complete Children's DHA/EPA may beneficial is because some omega-3 fatty acids are considered essential fatty acids. This means tha our body's can't synthesize (or make) them on their own. In order to gain their health benefits‚ we must ingest them. That's why Complete Children's DHA/EPA may be a great choice for a child because it is formulated to provide adequate levels of these essential fatty acids.
