Omega-3 fatty acids are healthy fats that our bodies can’t produce, so we need to consume them from food sources. They are essential for proper eye and brain development in children, but the best source of omega-3s is fish and getting children to eat fish can be a challenge! However, green apple, orange-peach, and strawberry-banana gummies, loaded with omega-3s, is no challenge at all.
Omega-3 fatty acids support heart, brain, vision and mood, and keep our cell membranes flexible. Omega-3 DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is highly concentrated in the brain and eyes and is important for brain, visual, and nervous system development.
Every ingredient we use as a raw material in our products is tested for purity, identification (so we know it IS what it is supposed to be), heavy metals, pesticides and other contaminants in accordance with Canada’s Natural Health Products Directorate requirements and United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) guidelines.
All Treehouse Omega-3 products meet higher standards for purity than those required by Health Canada’s Natural Health Products Directorate regulations.
Omega-3 oils used in Treehouse supplements are IVO certified. IVO stands for International Verification of Omega-3s. It means our fish and vegetable oil products are certified by IVO, a non-profit agency, ensuring only the purest and most sustainably harvested Omega-3 products for our customers. Consumers can have confidence that Treehouse omega-3s have met the highest standards of purity and potency, while supporting the long term sustainability of the fish and marine oil industries.

Research in brief
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 has indicated that fish oil supplementation may be effective for conditions such as ADHD, anxiety, depression, and learning and behavioural difficulties (Freeman et al., 2006).
Unfortunately, many children are not consuming adequate amounts of omega-3s. In one study of UK school children, 9 out of 10 children did not meet the recommended guidelines of two servings of fish per week. The study also found that children with low levels of omega-3s had poorer reading ability and memory (Montgomery et al., 2013).
In one literature review of 15 studies examining DHA status and children, researchers concluded that DHA supplementation initiates brain changes that improve learning and behaviour (Kuratko et al., 2013).
