What is Omega Oil Junior?
Omega Oil Junior an omega-3-6-9 essential fatty acid (EFA) supplement designed specifically for children ages 2 and older. Using unrefined, cold-pressed rapeseed oil, evening primrose oil, and Camelina sativa oil, Omega Oil Junior provides a spectrum of omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 EFAs to help children meet their daily needs of these crucial nutrients. Since you can easily add Omega Oil Junior to foods and recipes, this is a great option for adding healthy fats to your child’s favorite snacks/dishes. Alternatively, it can be taken by the spoon with a glass of water.
Benefits of Omega Oil Junior
Research continues to show that deficiencies in certain omega essential fatty acids, notably alpha-linoleic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) can increase the risk of health issues in children since these omega-3 EFAs are an integral part of healthy nervous system development.1
Moreover, lacking omega EFAs can hinder normal growth and maturation of vital organs and tissues in children, leading to problems down the road. Since children might not consume foods that are good sources of omega-3s (e.g. salmon, mackerel, tuna), supplementing with Omega Oil Junior makes it simple to get more of these key EFAs in their diet.
It’s important to note that virtually all of the omega fatty acids must be consumed through food and/or dietary supplements since the body doesn’t produce them endogenously. Omega Oil Junior provides a comprehensive blend of omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids to ensure a proper balance of unsaturated fats.
Benefits of Omega Oil Junior may include:
- Support for proper nervous system development
- Help children meet their daily EFA needs
- Support healthy immune function
- Promote healthy growth and maturation
