Given the vast and growing body of scientific research proving the many health benefits of omega 3 essential fatty acids, we know that fish oil is important in the diet. Why are Essential Fatty Acids important and what can they do for my child with autism?
Nutritional intervention can play a dynamic role in helping children peel back the layers of fog or disconnect, and support the brain and body to function at their true potential. While the fats in fish are technically not essential, in practice they may be conditionally essential for children with developmental delays. In other words, a child must take essential fatty acids from the diet and convert them to the DHA he/she needs for brain development. In children with developmental delays many experts think this does not happen sufficiently – or at all!
Parents of children with autism who gave their children omega 3-rich fish oil reported improvements in general health, sleeping patterns, cognitive and motor skills, concentration, eye contact and sociability as well as reductions in irritability, aggression and hyperactivity (Bell et all, 2004).
I recently learned about the company, Coromega, an omega 3 supplement line of omega-3 Squeezes with exceptional absorption rates.
Cormoga Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids Supplement Facts
Coromega is a great fit for children with autism because:
- It has a delicious, juicy taste
- Perfect for kids who lack fish in their diet (or picky eaters)
- Easy to take as a treat, like a Go-GURT
- Gluten-free, dairy fee
- Contain no carbohydrates, yeast, sugar or artificial sweeteners
- Shelf stable for up to 3 years
- No risk of choking, as with softgels
- Coromega has 300% better absorption than soft gels
I was able to try some of this Omega 3 fish oil and was definitely impressed on how easy it is to take. I prefer to squeeze it out on a spoon instead of taking it right from the packet, but whatever way you choose to take it, Coromega is the way to go if you want to incorporate a fish oil supplement into your daily routine.
The benefit it has over a pill is not just the taste, but also that if you don’t want to take it straight you can add it to yogurt, ice cream, a smoothie…I’m sure you’ll think of lot more ways once you try it.
The other thing that makes Coromega stand out from the competition is TASTE! – Their original Coromega comes in a refreshingly delicious, creamy, orange flavor with NO FISHY aftertaste common with fish oil softgels – and for variety they have these other delicious flavors: lemon lime, chocolate orange and Tropical Orange + D (also contains vitamin D)!
It isn’t just kids that benefit from Omega 3′s though..most women eat less than half the 160 milligrams of omega-3 essential fatty acids experts recommend we get daily. That’s why I’m taking the Coromega challenge! For 90 days I’ll be taking Coromega and at the end of that period I’ll let you know the results of it. Keep reading the blog to see my posts about it!
