Blackmores Fruity Fishies™ have been developed using concentrated fish oil so you only have to give your child one chewable softgel capsule a day. It is a naturally flavoured product that has been developed without the use of artificial sweeteners.
Fish oil is a source of omega-3 essential fatty acids. Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are incorporated into every cell membrane in the body in the form of compounds called phospholipids. Cell membranes play the vital role of regulating what goes into, and what comes out of, each cell. The integrity and fluidity of the cell membrane is determined by the type of phospholipid that is available for the body to use.
Cell membranes made up mainly of phospholipids derived from the essential polyunsaturated fatty acids are more fluid and function better than cell membranes made up of saturated fat or trans-fatty acids.
Omega-3s play a role in brain development and function during the early stages of life. They cannot be manufactured within the body and therefore they must be derived from the diet or from supplementation.
Studies suggest that omega-3s may also play a role in healthy development.
