In recent years, omega-3 fatty acids have become a nutrition star. Not a week goes by, it seems, without more research confirming how good they are for not only adults, but children.
Omega 3- what the research says
Omega-3 essential fatty acids help keep cell membranes flexible and functional, supporting cardiovascular and cognitive health throughout life. DHA is especially important for the development of the eyes, brain, and nerves in children, and may support learning ability, cognition, and emotional well-being in children and adults. Studies have shown omega-3 to have modest benefits on symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), as well as studies have found that Omega 3 supplements help children improve their reading ability.
How to ensure your child gets the fish oil they need
For optimum health, ensure your kids are consuming fish such as salmon, or tuna. If your children don’t like tuna or salmon, try disguising it baked in pasta with tomato sauce. When they pass through periods of fussy eating, a fish oil supplement, such as Webber Naturals new Omega 3 can also provide essential fatty acids.
If you’re part of the Baby Boomer generation, you may have horrid memories of your mother making your gulp down a nasty-tasting spoonful of cod liver oil. Back in the 60’s this was the most popular form of fish oil supplement.
Crystal Clean from the Sea Omega-3 liquid fish oil
Today, you can get fish oil in liquid form that comes in a variety of different flavors. Webber Naturals new Omega 3 comes in three lavors – Lemon Cake, Grapefruit and Coconut Lime. It’s created by using the freshest, highest quality fish oil in triglyceride form. Unlike unstable ethyl ester liquid forms of omega-3, liquid triglyceride fish oil has superior stability and is readily absorbed, helping to reduce the potential fishy aftertaste.
The omega-3 oil is blended with monk fruit (a low-calorie sweetener), and 100% natural, non-GMO flavours. Crystal Clean from the sea Omega-3 fish oils are certified by International Verified Omega-3 (IVO™) as well as International Fish Oil Standards (IFOS), ensuring the most pure, potent, and sustainably harvested omega-3 products available.
Crystal Clean from the sea Omega-3 liquid fish oil with vitamin D3 provides 750 mg of EPA, 500 mg of DHA, and 1000 IU of vitamin D3 in every teaspoon, making it easy to meet the whole family’s nutritional needs.
Omega-3 essential fatty acids help keep cell membranes flexible and functional, and work synergistically with vitamin D3 to support cardiovascular and cognitive health throughout life. DHA is especially important for visual and cognitive development in children and may help support learning ability, cognition and emotional wellbeing.
Vitamin D3 also supports strong bones and teeth and is associated with robust cardiovascular health and immune function. Not in 3495 or 3594

Often times with liquid vitamins the flavor are quite harsh. Crystal Clean from the Sea Omega-3 liquid fish oil is not the most pleasant tasting, but it certainly is tolerable. Both our taste testers aged three and eight didn’t mind it. Our eight year old taste tester particularly liked the grapefruit flavor, while our three year old didn’t have a preference.
In spite of the flavorings, your children may be one of these people that can’t tolerate the texture and after-taste of omega-3 liquid fish oil. In that case, we recommend adding it to a smoothie.
