What is BIOmega-3 Kids fish oil?

Scientific studies* show that fish oil capsules (Bio-Marine Plus, Bio-Fish Oil or BIOmega-3 Kids) provides the same omega-3 health benefits as eating fish on a daily basis. If you want to make sure you get the purest preparation with the highest concentration of omega 3 and the best bio-availability, then Pharma Nord is the best choice.

BIOmega-3 Kids, fish oil contains omega 3 in its natural (triglyceride) form, which is converted to free fatty acids in your digestive system before absorption. The unique aspect of this preparation is that the capsules are made of fish gelatine, making it 100% fish-derived. There is also a pleasant natural lemon flavour added to each 1000mg capsule. The fish used is caught in the cleaner waters of the South Pacific and Northern Atlantic.

18% EPA (180mg) per capsule

12% DHA (120mg) per capsule

The above ratios of EPA and DHA polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) represent the same levels found in nature. BIOmega-3 Kids, fish oil is not chemically or heat modified to claim higher levels.

Safety

BIOmega-3 Kids, fish oil is screened for toxins, PCBs, lead, mercury and other pollutants via the PureMax filtering process. In addition, the oil is derived from the flesh of the fish, not the liver. Once purified, the oil is poured back into its natural wrapping - fish gelatine capsules, which are made from fresh fish.

All Pharma Nord products are produced under pharmaceutical control and comply with Good Manufacturing Practice.

My children are always hesitant to eat their vitamins - for their Multi vits I give them Holland and Barrett teddy jellies and they love them.
Fish oil was always going to be difficult - just because it's fish oil - the 8 year old goes in to details to the 6 and 3 year old on how the fish is squeezed to get the oil out....so yes i knew this one would be hard!
Surprisingly though they have all been having the capsules for a week now - they didn't like chewing on the capsule but they will happily have the oil on a tea spoon followed by their jelly vits! The 3 year old isn't too keen but if big brothers can do it then she has to be a soldier too! Too early to say how much of a difference they have made but the fact that they're taking them has made me a very happy mum!

I purchased my second lot of these capsules for my son. The main reason I bought them was due to the fact my boy used to suffer from eczema and after doing some research online I decided to try bio fish oils to see if they improve his condition. I'm pleased to say after being on them for about a month (1 a day) he no longer has eczema behind his knees or on his head and under his eyes. My wife and I have decided that we will continue giving him them as we have found he sleeps much much better ever since we started giving him fish oils. We had a food intolerance test done which showed he has an allergy to eggs but not fish.
I hope this review will help someone else who may be struggling with this skin condition.

The lemon flavor of the fish oil is amazing, my son thinks that I have started buying him some new lemon flavor yoghurts. Highly recommended.

I give my two children natural fish oil for brain development, behaviour and a healthy immune system. BIOMega 3 Kids is great because they just chew the capsules like sweets! At first they were happy to have them squeezed into yoghurt, but now I have to hide the pack as they were munching their way through half a box in no time. The fish oil here is not chemically treated and the capsule tastes of lemon, so it's easy to give kids.
