Fish Oils Could Improve Behavioural Issues among Children and Young People

Statistics released by the NHS in England in 2018 found that 1 in 8 children and young people have at least one mental health disorder e.g. anxiety, depression, behavioural, or hyperactive.

Despite the numbers of children and young people needing support, only 1 in 4 reported accessing specialist mental health services.  

Research shows that symptoms such as attention deficit disorder, depression and other psychological disturbances, antisocial and aggressive behaviour are caused by impaired brain function. These impairments are due to the lack of long chain omega-3 fatty acids – DHA, EPA and DPA.

A diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids such as mackerel, salmon, herring, oysters, sardines, anchovies, flax seeds, chia seeds, walnuts and soybeans would certainly help. However, not all youngsters like these foods and to be of a therapeutic benefit these foods need to dominate the diet in both frequency and quantity.

Fish oil supplements are an easy way of getting the all important omega-3's into your family's diet. For teenagers, just one capsule of Aqua Biome Classic Fish Oil each day – and no fishy aftertaste - is a great alternative. The recommended dosage suggestion for adults is two capsules of Aqua Biome Classic Fish Oil.

Aqua Biome Fish OilAqua Biome fish oil, the purest omega formula available, is sustainably sourced and has a unique ratio of DHA:EPA:DPA fatty acids which replicates the ratio found in wild caught Alaskan salmon.




DPA – the Master Omega

  • New research shows that DPA (Docosapentaenoic Acid) is as equally important to the body as EPA and DHA
  • DPA plays a central role in regulating the use of EPA and DHA in the body. It can be converted to either EPA or DHA, depending on the body’s individual needs
  • DPA is an omega-3 that is not typically seen in other fish oil products - traditional fish oil production methods often remove this beneficial ingredient
  • Aqua Biome has a higher ratio of DPA omega oil than any other fish oil
