Brain Food for Our Little Ones

When we talk about children supplementations, one of the first things that come to our mind is “Fish Oil”. My brain can’t help but ring that catchy jingle of Scott’s Emulsion “Growing up” advertisement in my head, followed by its signature sweet orange taste. Parents would tell their children that fish oil is good for them, but what exactly is good?

Now that I am a parent, it is no surprise that I too want to give my daughter, Lauren the best protection and nutrients to support her growth. One of the key area parents often focus on is the child’s brain development, especially in their early years. We all know that DHA and EPA are important but why? EPA and DHA are vital to the body because they are building blocks for other fatty acids needed by the body, and many types of cells and tissues are comprised of these nutrients, for example our Brain.

To be absolutely honest, I didn’t think it was necessary to add more EPA or DHA supplement to Lauren since her formula milk already has it, and I heard from various people that some fish oils are not free of toxins, pollutants, and heavy metals. As a mother, I was reluctant to put Lauren at risk. Then 2 months into her Playgroup (20 months old), Lauren started to have immunity issues where she would often fall sick with cold or diarrhea and the frequency of it started to get higher. That’s when my friend Serene, who is also a mummy shared Marine Omega with me. She was raving about the benefits it has for her daughter, Abigail and all I could remember after her sharing was “…it has krill fish oil! It’s super good.”

What is this krill fish oil?

What’s so good about it?

How is this fish oil supposed to help Lauren?

These were the questions I had in mind then. I started to do some readings on my own and found out that Krill is a small crustacean that looks similar to shrimp. They are found in the colder waters of the ocean and contains higher EPA and DHA versus normal fish oil. Unlike fish oil, the omega-3 fatty acids in Krill oil are absorbed and carried to the body's cells in phospholipid form which allows it to pass through the brain-blood-barrier with ease, making it more beneficial and bioavailable. Also, krill oil and omega-3 fatty acids help with boosting immunity and anti-inflammations. Marine Omega has also gone through Pharmanex’s very strict 6S Quality Process guaranteeing that each bottle is free of harmful toxins, contaminants and heavy metals. In Serene’s words, “its cleaner and safer than the fish you buy from market”.

I bought a bottle and decided to check with Lauren’s pediatric doctor first before I let her consume. Her doctor gave the green light and said it is a good supplement to have. However, she was worried about the taste as it has no flavoring added to it except a hint of natural lemon oil. Instead of swallowing the soft gels like adults, I have to cut open the gel to feed Lauren the Marine Omega. The pediatric recommended an orange flavored normal fish oil for Lauren which I also bought just in case she rejects the Marine Omega. To my surprise, she prefers the Marine Omega versus the sweet orange flavored fish oil. I have to say the

Marine Omega does not taste as fishy as the other fish oils in the market and with the touch of lemon, it made it even more pleasant to consume. No wonder Lauren likes it!

2 months into Marine Omega, I can slowly see Lauren’s immunity building up with the help of the S3 Scanner that non-invasively measures a person’s antioxidant levels. I observed that she was also sharper and learns things faster than before which were also confirmed by her teachers during a recent end term review.
