Fish Oil for Children – From WHC, The Best of the Best

Fish oils are widely recognised as being important to our health – whatever age we are.

Like adults, most kids are deficient in EPA and DHA, the essential fatty acids found in fish oil. These nutrients are vital building blocks of a child's development, particularly as it pertains to brain health and vision. 

QuattrO3 + PS is an advanced complex specially formulated for youngsters. It integrates readily-absorbable EPA and DHA with vitamin D3, which is needed for the normal growth and development of bone in children, among other things.

Made by WHC, a company world-famous for the purity of their fish oils, QuattrO3 + PS is a safe, natural and effective way of promoting your child’s mental and physical wellbeing.

Do Children Really Need Fish Oils?

Some parents might wonder if their children really need fish oils. Can’t they get all the nutrition they require from milk, fruit, vegetables and protein?

Since our bodies can’t make omega-3 fatty acids, the answer is no: we must get them from oily fish, fish oil supplements or omega-3 foods like walnuts, flaxseeds and egg yolks. Given that most kids turn their noses up at oily fish, it’s no wonder children's fish oils have become so popular!

Omega-3s have many benefits, but their effect on children is especially noteworthy: maternal intake of DHA not only contributes to the normal brain and vision development of the foetus and breastfed infant, but to the normal visual development of infants up to 12 months of age. 

In one 2012 study by the University of Oxford, daily supplements of DHA improved the reading and behaviour of underperforming kids in mainstream primary schools.

‘Our results showed that taking daily supplements of omega-3 DHA improved reading performance for the poorest readers (those in the lowest fifth of the normal range) and helped these children catch up with their peer group,’ said Dr Alex Richardson, senior research fellow at Oxford’s Centre for Evidence-Based Intervention. 

A separate 2016 trial underscored the benefits of fish oils for children, particularly where reading ability was concerned. Previous studies have also underlined the benefits of omega-3 supplements for kids with conditions like dyslexia and ADHD.

Vital Vitamin D

As well as fish oils, QuattrO3 + PS utilises vitamin D3 to help kids realise their full potential. Vitamin D3 – which Public Health England say we should all consider supplementing with during the sun-starved autumn and winter months – is of particular benefit to youngsters insofar as it promotes growth, contributing to bone development, muscle function and healthy teeth.

Important though the Sunshine Vitamin undoubtedly is, many children are still deficient. According to a study published in Pediatrics in 2017, there was an increase in the rate of vitamin D deficiency among kids between 2000 and 2014. Another study published in the Journal of Steroid Biochemistry & Molecular Biology found that almost half of newborns are deficient in vitamin D, with the number rising to 62% during winter.

Vitamin D deficiency among young people is doubly troubling, since new analysis published in the British Medical Journal suggests vitamin D supplements "could spare more than three million people from colds or flu in the UK each year".

QuattrO3 + PS contains 400 i.u. (10 mcg) of vitamin D3, the official daily recommendation by the Department of Health.

Pure and Eco-Friendly Manufacturing

The purified fish oil in QuattrO3 + PS is obtained using a unique cold and eco-friendly production process. Because WHC respects the environment, only oil from non-endangered species – anchovies, mackerel, herring and sardines – is used.

QuattrO3 + PS contains: 

• Exceptionally high concentration of omega-3 fish oil (over 90%) certified from sustainable fisheries and exclusively from non-endangered species

• 400 i.u. of vitamin D3 (or 10 mcg)

• Evening primrose oil

• Phosphatidylserine (soy-free, no allergy risk)

• No beef gelatine (suitable for pesco-vegetarians)

The product is also gluten and lactose-free and has no fish smell!

Easy to Take Flavoured Softgels 

QuattrO3+PS is supplied in packs of 60 tutti-frutti flavoured softgel capsules and is recommended for children aged 3 to 14 years. 

The recommended serving is 1 or 2 capsules per day, preferably taken at meal times. 

For children who cannot swallow capsules, cut open the softgel and squeeze the content onto cold foods such as yoghurts, pastas, rice or vegetables. A balanced mixture of rosemary and tocopherol extracts guarantees the freshness of each WHC supplement.
