Children's Health

Children’s cognitive development and mental performance are influenced by many factors, including nutrition.  Deficiencies in the key omega-3 fatty acid EPA have been shown to have detrimental effects on behaviour, mood, attention & concentration in children.

Autism, like dyslexia, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and dyspraxia, is part of a group of neurodevelopmental disorders, which are all associated with problems in the metabolism of long-chain fatty acids.

Children with autism have lower levels of long-chain fatty acids than other children, possibly because of an inability to convert what are known as short-chain essential fatty acids to long-chain fatty acids, as found in fish. Long-chain fatty acids play a crucial role in learning, memory and behaviour via direct effects on brain function, including the regulation of neurotransmitters, and also indirectly on the expression of genes in the brain.

Supplementation with concentrated omega-3 (and in particular EPA) can help overcome deficiencies and has been shown to be an effective treatment for these conditions. Daily supplementation with EPA may result in improvements in overall health, cognition, sleep patterns, social interactions, eye contact and anxiety, restlessness, aggressiveness and anger control

E-EPA 70 is a patented supplement with high levels of EPA and GLA, formulated to maintain healthy omega-3 levels required for optimal brain function. Our original E-EPA 70 was used in a double-blind placebo-controlled pilot trial in 97 children with ADHD, all of whom were resistant to treatment with methylphenidate. 81.2% showed statistically significant improvements in restlessness, 87.5% in aggressiveness and 70.8% in anger control.  An impressive 83.3% showed statistically significant improvements in cooperation with both parents and teachers, with 77.1% of children showing improved educational functioning and academic performance.

Orange Chewables provide the same proven formula at a lower dosage, suitable for younger children or those who have difficulty swallowing.

Neurobalance is highly synergistic with our Omega-3 formulas and provides key cofactors known to influence brain power. Zinc, magnesium and vitamin B6 work together to regulate the production of chemicals involved in key aspects of cognitive function – maintaining concentration and attention and improving memory – all of which are important factors which influence a child’s overall mental performance.
