BiOmega Jr – Brain Power for Your Child.
If you are a parent with a young child or children, you know the most important stages of brain development are those crucial early years. The knowledge and cognitive function your child builds in his or her early years will pave the road for their success as they become teenagers and eventually responsible adults.
As you may very well know, part of this healthy brain development relies heavily on good nutrition. Our organs are nurtured by the foods we eat and thrive off of healthy food choices. But you may also know that the pickiest eaters on earth are children!
And getting them to eat “brain food” could often be an impossible task. Unlike fish, popular kids foods – like anything, , do not fall into the category of foods that support brain health.
So getting your child to enjoy a lovely piece of salmon is a long shot that you probably do not have the time nor patience for.
In situations like these, parents like yourself can rely on a strong Omega-3 supplement designed specifically for young children who need proper nourishment to help support strong cognitive development.
But it cannot be just any supplement off the shelf. It should be backed by thorough research that proves its effectiveness.
Introducing USANA BiOmega Jr.
BiOmega Jr. is the first Omega-3 supplement of its kind, developed by the team of researchers at USANA Health Sciences. It helps parents address the issue of getting those brain-boosting nutrients mainly found in fatty fish – a food that is widely not eaten by choice by most children. Each serving of USANA BiOmega Jr. contains a creamy gel that tastes great!
But what makes it so special is that each serving has two very important fatty acids, EPA and DHA, as well as Vitamin D.
The best part?
There is not even a hint of a fishy taste. Your children will have no problem taking these supplements as part of a balanced nutritional program.
The Power of the Ingredients in BiOmega Jr.
The ingredients in each BiOmega Jr. packet were carefully researched and selected with your child’s health in mind. Keep reading to find out the importance of each and why you should consider this supplement for your kid!
EPA and DHA
Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) are two examples of Omega-3 essential fatty acids found in fish and some other high-fat food products.
These fats are not to be confused with the fats you’d consume from a deep-fried hamburger or french fries. Those fats are mainly trans fats and saturated fats and can wreak havoc on anyone’s health when consumed frequently.
EPA and DHA are polyunsaturated fats and, when taken together, can provide your child with a long list of health benefits, both in cognitive function and other areas of the body.
Our brain loves these essential fatty acids because it helps it to function at optimum levels. When your child’s brain is functioning properly, important functions such as their memory, mood, concentration, and ability to learn are positively impacted.
Research has shown that low blood levels of EPA and DHA are directly linked with poor brain development in young children.
Can Fish Oil Help Children With ADHD?
ADHD is a commonly diagnosed condition for young children with noticeably short attention spans and who’s energy levels may seem erratic. Prescription drugs are often prescribed to control this condition, but their side effects are well known and less than desirable.
Studies have shown that children (and adults) who have ADHD also have lower DHA levels in their blood and that proper supplementation with DHA at a young age could help offset this cognitive condition and provide an alternative to harmful prescription drugs.
Apart from the cognitive benefits, EPA and DHA could provide your child with other health benefits as well. It has been shown to help promote healthy eyes and help to reduce symptoms of dry eyes.
These fatty acids also play an enormous role in cardiovascular health, helping to keep your child’s heart very healthy and strong as they develop throughout their early years.
Since these fatty acids are considered ‘essential’, our only way of getting them is through proper nutrition and effective high quality supplementation
Just half a packet of a BiOmega Jr. serving contains 325mg of EPA and DHA, which is almost as much as the average consumed by most children (the average is 351mg daily, and it is not considered to be “enough”).
Obtaining these essential fatty acids from salmon or tuna might be easy for you or other adults, but try getting a child to fall in love with a seafood diet in this world of sugar and fast food, and you will release it is an uphill battle every step of the way.
Vitamin D: The Power Vitamin Your Kids Need
Last, but certainly not least, BiOmega Jr. provides a healthy dose of vitamin D in each serving. This nutrient is an important part of the overall development of your child’s brain and body.
It helps to properly develop bones and muscles and also assists the body in absorbing calcium and phosphate found in the food we eat.
Adding Vitamin D to each serving of BiOmega Jr. ensures your child is receiving a complete supplement developed to ensure they thrive as they grow.
BiOmega Jr. can mix easily with your child’s favorite juice or even yogurt snack, and it doesn’t contain any extra unhealthy sugars like most children’s supplements do.
Instead, BiOmega Jr. is naturally sweetened with stevia making it easy for kids to consume even on its own.
