The Omega 3 family of essential fatty acids, especially ALA, are an important part of your child’s daily diet because they foster health, growth, and well-being.
ALA, DHA, and EPA are the 3 primary and essential Omega 3s, found naturally in various nuts, berries, seeds, some plant-based sources, and grass-fed beef. EPA and DHA are more complex forms of Omega 3 which can only be found in fish, seafood and a few species of algae. Brainstein™ contains only algae-based DHA and chia seed-based ALA.
Our Required Omega 3s differ during various stages of life. Omega 3 ALA and DHA serve vital roles in the growth and development of infants and children. Even during pregnancy, the child’s brain, eyes, and nervous system needs them for development and controlling inflammation. Omega 3s are the core building blocks of the body.
The body is aware of the importance of Omega 3 to child development, which is why a mother’s breast milk is typically loaded with DHA and ALA. Lack of both is known to hinder performance later in a child’s life.
