USANA’s BiOmega Jr. omega-3 supplement delivers a healthy amount of the omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid(EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid(DHA), along with vitamin D, in a creamy orange-pineapple flavored gel.
The Benefits of BiOmega Jr.
Omega-3 fatty acids assists in many actions throughout the body, which is especially important for children up to 12 years of age. Our bodies require omega-3 fatty acids, especially DHA to help support the development of the brain, eyes, and nerves while supporting cognitive health and brain function.
The ingredients found in BiOmega Jr. help in the absorption and use of phosphorus, which is necessary in the prevention of osteoporosis. While osteoporosis isn’t necessarily a cencern for children, it’s important to recognize it early in life. That’s why calcium intake, when combined with sufficient amounts of vitamin D and a healthy diet, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
The Science of BiOmega Jr.
Developing a healthy body early in life can ehave long-term, positive effects. Some research suggests that early nutrition can ahve life long health effects. That’s why getting enough omega-3s can help in the development and maintenance of teeth. It can also help prevent vitamin D deficiency, which helps in developing and maintaining bones.
One serving of BiOmega Jr. provides 350 mg of EPA and 230 mg of DHA omega-3 fatty acids. (See nutrition information for total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol content.)
