There are two fatty acids, which are essential in the diet of humans, in the same way that some vitamins and minerals like magnesium and iron are essential. The body cannot survive without these essential fatty acids (EFAs) as it can’t make them from other fats or food sources. These 2 EFAs are linoleic acid (at the head of the Omega 6 family) and alpha-linoleic acid (at the head of the Omega 3 family). Both of these fatty acids are converted in the body to produce other “long chain” fatty acids, for example the Omega 3 alpha-linoleic acid produces eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docasahexaenoic acid (DHA) amongst others. The Omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA in particular have been shown to be essential for a range of functions related to the brain, eyes, cardiovascular system, inflammatory response and the skin amongst others. In the past eight years or so, research has shown benefits of supplementation with these fatty acids in children leading to improvements in reading skills, concentration, balance and movement, learning and behaviour.

Benefits: Ideal for children
