Q: Can children take krill oil? How much can they take?

A: Krill oil can be really good for the kiddos! The omega-3′s in krill oil promote, brain, eye, joint and nervous system development. Omega-3′s, like those found in krill oil, can also help to assist with behavioral issues and regulate mood. A recent study in the journal Nutrients, found DHA, an omega-3 found in krill oil, to have a favorable role in children’s cognition and behavior. Children up to 16 years of age may take 500mg of krill oil per day.

Of course, even though its generally considered safe, ALWAYS run a supplement by your Pediatrician before giving it to your kids. There are always exceptions, and there could be medications it doesn’t mix well with.
