Omega-3 fatty acids - don't forget the kids!

18.08.2023
INHALT

Omega-3 fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are important components for our body and should be available in sufficient quantities. Even during pregnancy, the omega 3 fatty acids are of central importance for the healthy development of the embryo.

The two Omega 3 fatty acids are essential, which means they are vital and must be consumed through food because the body cannot produce them itself. EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are mainly found in cold seawater fish such as anchovy, mackerel, salmon, herring. Not every child likes to eat fish more than once a week, so Omega 3 for children should be part of children's nutritional supplements.

These important fats are particularly important for children's development and growth and have many other health benefits. In this article we will discuss the benefits of Omega 3 fish oil products for children, give dosage recommendations and thus answer the question of whether Omega 3 fatty acids are suitable for children.

Scientific studies on children

SCHOOL CHILDREN

Perception, attention and the processing of external stimuli improved in more than 70 percent of school children from the Omega 3 group. [1]

PREGNANCY

For women in the omega 3 groups, the risk of preterm birth (34 weeks gestation or less) was reduced by 41% and the risk of stillbirth was reduced by 26%. In addition, the children in the group without omega 3 fish oil had a 10% increased risk of being born underweight. [2]

Omega-3 reduces the risk of premature birth and stillbirth. In addition, the risk of children being born underweight is reduced.

ADHD Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in Children

ADHD Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder with children

  • Several research groups examined the influence of omega 3 fatty acids on aggressive behavior and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children and adolescents. The clinical studies showed [3]
  • “Improving perceived health status and the life quality of the patients as well as with the reduction of health problems , in particular Hyperactivity/inattention and behavioral disorders” (dosage: between 123 mg and 3200 mg omega 3 fatty acids per day) [4]
  • “Reduction in ADHD symptoms, including improvements in hyperactivity, impulsivity, attention, visual learning, word reading, and working/short-term memory ” (exact doses not given in some cases) [5]

Asthma in children

Omega 3 fish oils such as EPA and DHA can reduce asthma and reduce symptoms. Asthma is a chronic condition that affects children and adults, causing symptoms such as difficulty breathing, chest pain, coughing and wheezing.

Dosage recommendation for children

The daily dosage recommendation depends on the age and gender of the child. Scientists and doctors do not agree on what the right dose of omega-3 is in children. According to the National Institutes of Health, the recommended daily intake of ALA for children is as follows:

  • 0-12 months: 0.5 grams
  • 1-3 years: 0.7 grams
  • 4-8 years: 0.9 grams
  • Girls 9-13 years: 1.0 grams
  • Boys 9-13 years: 1.2 grams
  • Girls 14-18 years: 1.1 grams
  • Boys 14-18 grams: 1.6 grams

Foods such as fish, nuts, seeds, and vegetable oils are excellent food sources for consuming omega-3 fatty acids. Alternatively, if your children do not enjoy eating these foods, consider supplementing with omega-3 for children.

Here you should stick to the recommended daily.

Follow the recommended dosage recommendation in children to reduce and avoid possible side effects.
