The extraordinary benefits of Omega-3 for kids
A recent research found that parents’ efforts are more important for a child’s educational attainment than the school’s efforts, which in turn is more important than the child’s own efforts. Parents make every effort to provide their children an edge in school and according to Oxford researchers that edge may be found in their daily diet. This has been proven that long-term dietary choices influences children’s mental health and cognitive function, whether positively or negatively. But intake of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids especially Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) influences child’s growth in a positive way. They supports normal growth and metabolism in children. EPA and DHA protect against heart diseases, have anti-inflammatory properties, aid in proper retinal and brain development, and improve focus and behaviour in children. They are among-st the most important good fats that our body requires, but unfortunately cannot produce on its own, and therefore, must be a part of our diet that should be taken externally. A study in journal Prostaglandins Leukotrienes & Essential fatty acids found that “If your child is making the wrong decisions, it could be due to his lower omega-3 fatty acid levels”. Low levels of Omega-3, particularly EPA and DHA, are associated with worse performance on reading tests and working memory, and more symptoms of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children.
Numerous studies have shown multiple benefits of daily consumption of Omega-3s on children, a few of them are: Supports child’s cognitive development, better hand-eye coordination, social skills, attention span, and intelligent test scores, better vision or eye functions, better concentration, supports child’s ability to learn and behave better, moderate improvement in ADHD symptoms including problems in processing emotions and socializing and also it supports memory functioning. Lower Omega-3 levels can make the child susceptible to certain inflammatory conditions or affect their cognitive functioning. Hence parents must ensure to include Omega-3s in their child’s daily diet.
Taking this into consideration, Lipomic Healthcare has launched India’s first Home2Lab test, the OMEGA HealthTest to measure Omega-3 levels in blood. The simple & safe blood collection method does not require a full blood draw or a visit to the doctor. One drop of blood is all require to access the nutritional status of your child. The OMEGA HealthTest is a convenient finger prick Home2Lab test to get a complete fatty acid profile of your child, with a full report that outlines the key inflammatory and dietary biomarkers and recommends a personalized dose to bring the biomarker into healthy target ranges. Therefore, it is important to know Omega-3 levels before embarking on any dietary changes or supplement regime, to know the right dose for your child.
Based on the test results, Lipomic Healthcare or your doctor recommends the consumption of Omega-3 supplements.
