A Fruity Way to Support the Brain

3 August 2005

Parents can ensure that their children get off to a flying start this new school term with a tasty new way to support their concentration in the classroom.

New Efalex Chewies, delicious Wild Berry Blast flavoured chewable capsules, will be available from September. Developed with kids in mind, the tasty new fruity flavour has already been given a big thumbs up by children, who approved it during the development process.

Taken once a day, each delicious chewable capsule provides an excellent source of the Omega-6 nutrient arachidonic acid (AA) as well as Omega-3 fatty acids docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) which are vital for childrens learning.

An adequate dietary intake of these 'good’ fats will support aspects of brain and visual function including learning ability, concentration and co-ordination which are especially important for the classroom environment.

Peter Clough, Technical Director at Efamol comments: 'The Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids found in oily fish such as salmon, tuna and mackerel, play a vital role in brain and visual development. It is extremely important that parents ensure their children’s diet includes a regular supply of these essential nutrients to ensure that they can perform their very best both in the classroom and at play.’
