Melrose Omega-3 Kids Fish Oil is an easy-to-swallow liquid that is rich in omega-3 fatty acids just like fresh fish. It is a delicious Tutti Fruity flavour with Natural Orange and Pineapple flavors, which kids (and adults) will love. Australian Dietary Guidelines recommends two serves of fish a week for children. Omega-3 fatty acids are essential to the cerebral developments and visual functions.
A deficiency of Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA may cause problems with learning, memory, vision and behavior. Supplementing EPA and DHA can improve reading, spelling and behavior and may also improve attention, brain function and self control in children with less than adequate intake of Omega-3.
Melrose Omega 3 Kids Fish Oil is derived from fish species containing high amounts of Omega-3. The species most commonly used are anchovies and sardines. Fish Oil has higher concentrations of EPA and DHA than Cod Liver Oil. Unlike Cod Liver Oil, Fish Oil is obtained from the body of the fish, excluding the liver.
Fish oils are processed using state of the art refrigeration and preservation methods. The fresh fish are rapidly processed to remove the body oils by steam distillation and further processed by vacuum separation of the low boiling toxins and filtration to provide a standard uniformity. Modern processing methods and the processing of smaller fish have kept both mercury and PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls) at less than 0.2ppm.
