ADA, Mich., Aug 22, 2005 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- What's yummy and gummy and comes from the sea? New NUTRILITE(R) BRAINIUMS DHA(TM), the first and only DHA gummy and tasty Omega-3 supplement for kids.

NUTRILITE BRAINIUMS DHA is a fun, kid-tested, sweet lemon-flavored gummy that offers a natural source of Omega-3s, fatty acids that are the building blocks of every living cell in the human body and required for optimal function of the cells. BRAINIUMS DHA offers two important Omega-3s, DHA and EPA. DHA helps support optimal memory, learning, and concentration. EPA supports physical health within joints for mobility and flexibility.

Omega-3s are abundant in ocean fish, but many people in North America don't eat a lot of fish. Kids especially tend to avoid fish -- unless it's in the form of sticks -- as they often dislike the taste of seafood. This could explain why the average American diet contains less than 200 mg of EPA and DHA. According to experts, those of us not currently consuming at least two meals of fatty fish per week may benefit from a supplement rich in DHA. Many DHA supplements, however, come in liquid form and have a fishy taste. With no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives, and nothing fishy to mix, stir, or drink, BRAINIUMS DHA is easy to eat, for kids and adults alike.

Consumers concerned about PCBs or other contaminants sometimes found in ocean fish can rest assured with NUTRILITE BRAINIUMS DHA. NUTRILITE scientists voluntarily joined with 23 other international companies, under the guidance of the Council for Responsible Nutrition, to develop standards for ensuring a supply of consistent, high-quality raw materials. Applying those standards, NUTRILITE starts with high-quality fish oils from ocean fish like anchovy, mackerel, and sardines. These oils then undergo a proprietary six- step process to extract the Omega-3s and purify them. Finally, NUTRILITE scientists test the refined oil for purity and stability.
