Additional Information

Omega-3 for brain, eyes, and nerve development

Omega-3 fatty acids are important for proper eye and brain development in children and help support mood.* They are integral to the structure of the body, forming cell membranes. Omega-3s are essential fats; they can’t be produced by the body and must be acquired through diet. Unfortunately, many children can be deficient in these essential fats due to low dietary intake of fish and fish oils. Omega-3 fatty acids help to support growing brains during pregnancy and through the childhood learning years.*

An omega-3 supplement can offer parents assurance that their growing children are getting enough of this important nutrient. Treehouse Omega-3 Gummies are a delicious alternative for children who don’t like fish or cannot swallow capsules. There is no fishy aftertaste and each gummy is naturally sweetened. Kids will love the flavors: green apple, orange-peach, and strawberry banana. They are free of artificial preservatives and sweeteners, and contain no GMOs. They are also free of common allergens including dairy, wheat, gluten, yeast, soy, corn, egg, shellfish, and tree nuts.

Research

Research in brief

A Canadian study showed that almost 4 out of 5 children do not get adequate dietary amounts of omega 3 fats (Madden, et al., 2009). Definitive evidence shows that DHA, a component of omega-3 from fish oil, is essential for the cognitive and visual development of children due to its high concentration in the brain and retina, where it becomes incorporated into cell membranes (Denomme, et al., 2005).

Evidence from clinical trials suggests that fish oil supplementation may help promote cognition and healthy mood. (Freeman, et al., 2006). A pilot study also showed that children who took supplemental DHA experienced more restful and longer duration sleep (Montgomery et al., 2014).
