> View Our Supplement Facts

Supplies the optimum balance of vegetable-based Omega-3, -6 & -9 fatty acids.
This delicately-flavored organic oil blend is easy to take for children of all ages.

Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) play a critical role in supporting your child’s physical, emotional and mental growth. EFAs may help support healthy bran function, a healthy immune system, healthy skin and overall health.*

Omega-3. Omega-3 oils supply DHA and EPA. DHA is the primary fatty acid that is found in the brain and every brain cell requires DHA to grow and function properly. EPA also plays a role in maintaining a healthy immune system.

Omega-6. Omega-6 oils supply GLA. GLA plays a role in maintaining a healthy immune system.

Omega-9. While not considered ‘essential’ because the body is able to manufacture omega-9, this fatty acid can help support a healthy heart, brain and overall health.

Vegetarian Formula. This formula provides omega-3s from flaxseed, sunflower, olive and pumpkin seeds. These sources will provide your child with omega-3 fatty acids primarily in the form of EPA. Your child’s body will then need to convert some of these fatty acids into DHA – the fatty acid that’s so involved and important for brain function.

The Right Balance. When it comes to the Omega-3, -6 and -9 fatty acids, it is about getting the right balance. Choose a supplement that gets the ratio right. ChildLife® Essential Fatty Acids provides all 3 fatty acids in just the right amount.
