The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition recently identified that the DHA in Omega 3 fish oil comes with a huge amount of benefits to children and their weight management in early childhood.
According to the study, increasing maternal DHA intake could have a favourable outcome on the body composition of the foetus in later life.
We know DHA really helps children’s visual, cognitive and behavioural development. Intake of DHA by the mother throughout pregnancy and while breastfeeding improves a child’s development dramatically.
Another interesting point the study raises is that the nutritional experience the mother has while pregnant tends to effect children’s own bodies for nearly six years after birth.
This finding shows that a lot of our children’s development is predetermined during pregnancy and in infancy meaning the right nutrition during this period is vital.
Last week, Sona launched two new fish oil products as part of its large range of Irish vitamins. SOMEGA 3 for Women and SOMEGA 3 Junior is a new innovation in the fish oil category.
Designed as a tasty smoothie, the mango flavour (for women) and the Tutti Frutti flavour (for kids), provide 100% of the daily recommended Omega-3 dose, including EPA and DHA and added vitamins including Folic Acid, B12 and Vitamin D12 for women and vitamin K and B1-6 for kids.
Fish oils have long been hailed as an essential supplement to take as part of a balanced diet. However, individuals often find the taste and texture hard to ingest. These smoothies offer all the great benefits of a fish oil, without the strong after taste.
DHA, a component fatty acid of Omega-3, is a key ingredient in SOMEGA 3 and is responsible for the healthy development of the brain, heart and vision.
With this in mind, fish oils benefit a huge variety of health issues. For women, taking fish oils regularly is highly recommended. Omega-3, a type of polyunsaturated fat, is key to optimal health as the human body cannot produce it on its own. For kids, fish oil is essential for brain development.
SOMEGA 3 is available online and in local pharmacies.
