ABC’s of omega-3
D, H and A are the 3 most important letters of the alphabet when it comes to your child’s health. DHA is the primary building blocks for your child’s healthy brain development, their central nervous system and vision. With ADD and ADHD on the rise its no wonder parents are looking for a natural product that helps support brain function and that can positively affects behaviour and I.Q. levels.
That’s why Platinum Naturals’ developed Omega Pure™ Brain to help improve focus and concentration, plus give your child 100% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin D.
Omega Pure™ Brain has a great tasting lemon flavour and was designed with your child’s best interest in mind.
The first 5 years of a child’s life are some of the most important, especially for the brain. Largely made up of fatty acids, the brain grows almost exclusively during the early years of life. According to the Merck Manual, the brain is 25% of adult size at birth, and by age 1 has completed half of its postnatal growth. By age 3, it is 80% of adult size.
Specially formulated for children, pregnant women and nursing mothers, Omega Pure™ Brain contains concentrated omega- 3 fish oils with high levels of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), in an ideal ratio to eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). DHA is a long chain fatty acid proven to play a key role in brain development. Taken during pregnancy and childhood, Omega Pure™ Brain supports a number of cognitive functions.
Healthy visual and brain development
Research published in Lipids found that light sensitivity is signif¬icantly reduced in newborns with omega-3 fatty acid deficiency, and that DHA significantly enhances visual and cognitive functions.
Supplementing with omega-3 oils during pregnancy has been associated with significantly higher I.Q. levels in children, reports the Institute for Nutrition Research.
Improves motor skills
Omega oils may improve motor skills in young children. According to a UK study, movement skills of dyslexic children improved after 4 months of supplementation with a mixture of high-DHA fish oil, evening primrose oil and thyme oil.
Improves ADHD / ADD
Numerous studies suggest that omega oil supplements may help and/or prevent disruptive behaviours like attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in children. Specifically, omega-3 oils have been shown to help with inattention and hyperactivity.
Added vitamin D for bone health
Omega Pure™ Brain is also high in vitamin D, a fat-soluble vitamin, which helps ensure healthy bone development. Research shows that pre-pubescent girls who received vitamin D during infancy have significantly greater bone mineral density than girls who had not. How much vitamin D a baby receives depends on vitamin D levels in the breast milk. One study suggests that half of all pregnant women are deficient in this important vitamin.
In addition to bone health, vitamin D plays an important role in disease prevention. Recent medical studies have associated vitamin D deficiencies with certain pathologies, such as heart disease, hypertension, autoimmunity, and periodontal disease.
