Are you getting enough from your Omega-3s?

Omega-3 from fish oil supplements have many health benefits. Fish oil contains two essential fatty acids, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) andeicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). These fatty acids are very important in preventing and managing heart disease.

According to research, taking an omega-3 fish oil supplement can help to lower blood pressure, reduce trigycerides, slow the development of plaque in the arteries, reduce the chance of abnormal heart rhythm and reduce the likelihood of a heart attack or stroke.

The American Heart Association recommends that adults and children eat at least two meals a week of fish.  The best way to get enough omega-3 is through diet, although fish oil supplements are also available for those who are unable to get enough fish from their diet.  

 If you are considering adding a fish oil supplement to your diet, Barlean’s Organic Oils, carry a wide variety of fish oil supplements including Wild and Whole Krill Oil. 


Krill is an alternative omega-3 solution. 37% of consumers are looking for a new alternative to fish oil and other Omega-3 choices. Krill is considered the next generation of Omega-3’s. It is a healthy, pure and sustainable solution in the Omega-3 marketplace. Adults can add krill to their daily health regimen as capsules are easy to swallow and digest and only one capsule is required daily, making it much easier to fit into busy lifestyles. Krill is also naturally rich in Astaxanthin- one of nature’s strongest super-antioxidants. 

Omega-3 supplements also have many health benefits for children.  Notable research studies have concluded that kids with ADHD may have lower levels ofmomega-3s in their bodies than normal.  A few studies have looked at fish oil supplements as a treatment.  These studies found that the supplements can improve behavior, reduce hyperactivity, and boost attention in kids under 12.

Fish oil has been used to treat depression in adults and is now known to help kids with depression as well. In 2006 a study of fish oil in depressed 6- to 12-year-olds found that it helped their symptoms significantly.  

Omega-3 supplements from fish oil can also help kids at high-risk of developing diabetes and children with asthma.  

As a mother of five children all with different health needs and picky eaters, getting them to have enough omega-3s in their diet is a constant battle.  My two daughters struggle with anxiety and depression and I know that an omega-3 fish oil supplement will help them with their symptoms.  Most fish-oil supplements for kids have a terrible fishy aftertaste. Barlean’s Organic Oils has the solution for families searching for that omega-3 fish oil supplement that the whole family can enjoy.

Barlean’s Omega Swirl fish oil supplement looks and tastes like a delicious smoothie without a hint of unpleasant flavor or oily texture.  My kids love it and think it is dessert. This is a supplement that I can feel confident about giving to my daughters and young boys. 

Omega Swirl comes in eight delicious flavors: Key Lime, Lemon Zest, Mango-Peach, Pina-Colada, Strawberry-Banana, Blackberry, Orange Cream and Blueberry Pomegranete. Barlean’s also has several recipes that call for Omega Swirl.  You can add it to smoothies, top desserts, salad dressings or just eat a spoonful.
