Studies have shown that omega 3 fats improve cognitive functioning. Children who take a daily dosage of an omega 3 supplement have experienced improved memory, a heightened ability to concentrate on tasks, and protection from potential life-threatening disease on the cellular level. Antarctic krill brings you the most pure form of omega 3’s available.

Superior Omega 3 Supplement Option:

The best type of omega 3 supplement for children and adults is Antarctic krill oil. Krill look like shrimp, but their tails are rich in omega 3 fats and antioxidants. Fish oil supplements were popular in the past, but the fear of contamination has pushed more people toward krill oil supplements instead. Fish oil also has less effective properties then krill oil does. Krill oil is bound to phospholipids and fish oil is bound to bad fat. Because krill oil has the same properties as your body, it is absorbed much easier and is more effective at getting results.

What to Look For:

When purchasing krill oil for children, you must consider the following three factors:

1. Purity

Make sure to select a krill oil supplement that reveals the location where the manufacturer sources krill. The Antarctic Ocean is the best place to source krill because that ocean is protected by the government; the krill are not wiped out by the fishing industry and the waters remain free of contamination. Make sure the supplement you purchase is made with pure krill oil from a clean body of water such as the Antarctic Ocean.

2. Form

 Krill oil soft gels are small, but powerful. Most young children can swallow them without any issues. Every child is different, and some will have better results taking more than one soft gel at a time. Krill oil soft gels are easy, so your kids wont get any negative side effects or aftertaste.

3. Dosage

Because the body cannot make omega 3’s, taking it on a regular basis will produce the best results. We recommend giving your child a soft gel in the morning and a soft gel in the evening. there are no side effects from taking our omega 3 krill oil supplements so you can try a higher dose if you feel your not getting the results you desire. Each child is different; therefore quantities will vary based on your child’s size and their current existing conditions. If your child is on medicine you may want to check with your family pediatrician or family doctor to ensure you give your child enough krill oil to benefit them most effectively. 

Krill oil has one more perk that parents and children appreciate: it does not have the strong aftertaste that comes with fish oil supplements. Most people find that their breath does not stink, as it might with some other types of supplements, so this is a more pleasant way to give your child the benefits of an omega 3 daily supplement. With krill soft gels there is no fishy aftertaste.
