OmegaEmbrace Kids by CHI4Health is sourced off the coast of the world's least industrialized coast line, the Chilean coast. These cold, fresh waters supply the purest, most sustainable source of fish in the world. OmegaEmbrace contains a perfect balance of EPA and DHA as re-esterified triglycerides. Omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFA’s) in the re-esterified triglyceride form, like the type found in Omega Embrace, are more easily digested and significantly more absorbable than lower quality omega-3 EFA’s in other forms. Omega 3 EFA’s are known for their cardiovascular, anti inflammatory, cognitive, joint and visual benefits.
Major changes in modern diet over the last century have led to a decrease in the general consumption of omega-3 fatty acids. Since this is considered a cornerstone nutrient for human health it is important to get plenty of Omega-3 fatty acids via diet, supplementation, or both. While the importance of omega-3 fatty acids for adults is well-known, children also require adequate amounts of these essential fats for healthy brain development, vision, skin and joints and to support a normal inflammatory response.
Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) is a polyunsaturated fatty acid that functions as a metabolic precursor to important lipids (fats) known as prostaglandins. Prostaglandins regulate processes like inflammation, blood flow, and the formation of blood clots. Food sources include albacore tuna, anchovies, halibut, oysters and salmon.
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is a polyunsaturated fatty acid that is crucial to brain development. DHA is a major structural component of the brain and is absorbed by the brain in preference to all other EFA’s.
