I’m a NeoLife believer and Promoter from Washington. I have 2 amazing kiddos who have more energy than of at least two suns! My 5 year-old son was born with a cleft lip so getting proper nutrition in him has always been a huge concern of mine. We were blessed that his lip is mainly superficial and doesn’t affect his palate but his taste buds on the other hand are a different story.
As he got older and started preschool, I noticed that although he is very intelligent, he was having issues with behavior. As a concerned mom, I did research and changed his diet as much as I could till I came across some amazing studies about omega-3s positively affecting behavior. This was the first time I had heard about this, so I began to look at the omega-3 gummies my son was taking and found that it was only provided 72g. I was appalled! I knew that this was little to nothing and only provided DHA; only one of the omegas.
I started to do more research on what would be a good supplement that my picky son would take and just the next week NeoLife came out with Omega-3 Liquid! There was hope, finally a quality supplement I could depend on – the only question was would he take it? I ordered my first bottle of NeoLife Omega-3 Liquid and was so ecstatic to see that he loved it! In the past, I had given him other liquid fish oils and he would spit them out, but this he takes without question and even reminds me when me forget!
He has been taking them for about 2-3 months now and we have seen a noticeable difference in his attention and behavior, even his teacher has noticed he is able to focus much more in class! I’m so happy to see something that allows him to show his sweet personality in the way he means too!
Thank you so much to NeoLife – it has been a seriously life changer in our family!*

It is established that omega-3 fatty acids are a crucial component of cognitive development in children. They are used for building the membranes of new neurons, which is critical for a developing nervous system. DHA in particular makes up about 15% of all fatty acids in the frontal cortex of the brain, and is involved in messaging and signaling processes. But did you know that omega-3s can affect behavior as well? A report published in the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology Journal last June describes how omega-3 fatty acids can affect levels of serotonin, which is a hormone that regulates cognitive functions, mood, decision-making processes, social behavior and impulsive behavior. EPA helps increase serotonin levels and DHA helps make serotonin receptors more accessible to serotonin, both of which aid in improving the positive effects of serotonin in the brain.1
In addition, a recent study suggests omega-3 supplementation could play a role in learning ability. In the study, researchers provided a daily 600mg omega-3 supplement to children ages 7-9 years. Among those whose reading skills were in the bottom 20th percentile, literacy improved over the course of the 4 month study compared to the control group taking a daily placebo.2 While more research is needed to confirm the findings, the study results are promising and highlight the importance of adequate intakes of omega-3s during the developmental years.
