This product has also been used in a recent successful study on the treatment of autism which is to be published in the Journal of Pediatrics in January of 2005. Formulated especially for the needs of young, developing minds, Nordic Naturals Omega 3.6.9 Junior provides a full spectrum of omega fatty acids necessary for learning, positive mood and memory. The product is available in lemon-flavored chewable capsules for easy compliance within the age group. Each 2 capsule serving supplies 148 mg of EPA, 98 mg of DHA and 36 mg of GLA.
According to Dr. Perlmutter, M.D. the company’s Medical Advisor, “Omega-3s have been shown in research studies to support children’s brain and eye development, as well as mood, focus, learning ability and overall well being. Omega-6s specifically from GLA have been shown to provide nutrients for nourishing skin, hair and nails.” Further research has suggested the use of fish oil supplementation by expectant and lactating mothers for the purpose of supplying adequate amounts of DHA for prenatal and new born development.
