Nordic Naturals, the world’s leading supplier of omega-3 fatty acids, is having a What’s Essential Essay Scholarship competition. This contest will run through March 31, 2013. The winner will receive a $5000 scholarship for college PLUS a one-year supply of their award-winning omega oils!
So what is the hype with omega-3 fatty acids?
Omega-3 fatty acids are important for growth and development. They are essential for brain development, which can clearly affect learning. They are also essential for neural development, which is why they’re also important for children like ours who are on the Autism spectrum or have sensory concerns. With both neural and brain development benefits, omega-3’s are a powerhouse for growing and learning – and they actually have many more benefits as well! I want to share the importance of omega-3 fatty acids for brain development and learning because that is a lot of what the “What’s Essential” Scholarship is all about! We rarely get enough omega-3 fatty acids in the foods we eat, and the body doesn’t produce them, so an omega-3 supplement really is essential for brain development and function. When your brain function is at its peak learning is at its peak as well! Here are a few key findings from omega research:
- Improved attention and behavior. (Again, this is why it was recommended to us to make sure our special needs children get plenty of omega-3 fatty acids.)
- Higher Grades and Test Scores.
- Improved Reading and Spelling.
- Improved Behavior (which can better help children focus on what they’re learning).
- Better memory and problem solving.
These are just a few of the benefits noted on omega research. There are definitely more!
