Just curious - dh and I are thinking of starting to use them with dd - we are primarily concerned with boosting her immune system know that she is in nursery and help her system to recover quicker from colds etc as well as any other benefits.
I would recommend Green Pastures Blue Ice fermented cod liver oil, orange
Combine with KerryGold butter or grass fed even better
Dr. Price always gave cod liver oil along with high-vitamin butter oil, extracted by centrifuge from good quality spring or fall butter. He found that cod liver oil on its own was relatively ineffective but combined with high vitamin butter oil produced excellent results
Worley, I doubt many of the original posters are around after 10 years.
However, my DS2 with ASD has been using EyeQ for many years now and I definitely noticed an improvement in his concentration after about 6 weeks or so. It is very fishy, but DS2 is used to it. It is high in EPA, as is vegepa.
Manchester University Baby Research Unit did a research project some years ago From Pregnancy too age 3 too find out benefits of Omega 3 you can Google and see lost of Positive results. Seems it's a pet subject.
thank you all.. I've been around 7 years so was hoping there were some oldies about still!! saintly.. do you think you saw a difference with your dc? I was lent some children's chewy orange vitamins with omega 3 in today (?hariborange.. can't remember name now) to try out on ds2, but looked into the eyeQ ones on the net.. I've tried a fish oil chewy gum before but ds2 was literally sick when I made him eat it!! I tried it and apologised to him for giving it to him! I wondered what had happened to robin as all the posts are withdrawn.
I think for good concentration the high EPA is key rather than DHA? I'd check the blurb on the haliborange packet. Though expensive ones that have all the right ingredients that they won't eat aren't much use! The vegepa ones are more expensive, but are reportedly more palatable, being vegetarian.
I recognise you, saintly, but none of the other names, except maybe Davros. Has everyone NCed?
DS (dyspraxia) won't take fish oils with any sort if bribery, he can swallow capsules, but completely knows what the fishy burps come from. He will however take udo's oil - a vegan version! So we make do with that. I think every little bit helps.
Will watch this thread, despite it being started 10 yrs ago! We started DS2 on eyeQ fish oil chewy capsules a week ago. Will be watching to see if there are any changes in him, he has HFA and his concentration span is very short
Diet, it took 6 weeks before I noticed anything with my DS and it sort of crept up on us. His language came on in a bit of a leap as well. Really tricky to tell if it was coincidence, of course. But 9 years on he still takes them.
My private therapist (bit hippy) has been suggesting oil, but not fish oil, basically any oil and an increase in the fat in her diet. This is what we were told to do when the kids had a D+V bug for over a month and it really did the trick in sorting out their tummies. The liquid vitamins have really really helped, so I'm going to try some more oil in their diet too.
Coming in here to the interesting zombie thread! I tried getting my DS to take a fish oil capsule by trying to hide it in yoghurt, my DH still has not forgiven me that from that day to this DS will no longer eat yoghurt (used to be his breakfast, now will only eat rice cakes for breakfast!).
DS however will happily take any amount of liquid vitamin supplements etc (from a syringe) as long as they are a nice flavour (prefers eg orangy type, likes WellKid). Can anyone recommend a liquid (not capsule!) fish oil supplement that is good and also nice tasting.
dietstarts - which ones are you using? were about day 4-5 in to using the haliboborange ones. if i have tine atvweekend ill go to healthfoord shop and look for the ones with highest amount of omega3 in.
my ds2 has recently been diagnosed with adhd and as much as i have tried to limit chemicals etc in his diet he is still very hyperactive, has no concentration at school and strugging massivley with reading and writing. although he excels at sports. anyother suggestions of viramins etc to help? the consultant has givem me a list of medications they can use but ex is very anti medication (he works within a senco residential school and has seen the negative affects if medication on children and unwilling to let me try them)
