Promotes Children’s Health
Important for their immune health, brain development, hormone production, and bone and teeth development, kids especially benefit from the Omega 3s DHA & EPA and Vitamin D. These nutrients are often lacking so Kids Mega D is a great way to ensure kids get what they need.
Kids Mega D puts these beneficial nutrients into a scrumptious all-natural gummy (3 flavours, too!). Kids need a great healthy start so this product is made with natural flavours and no glucose, fructose, corn syrup, bovine gelatin, chemical preservatives, colours or flavours. They’re so good, you’ll have to hide the bottle!
Give your kids a good start with Vitamin D and Omega 3.
Kids with sunny dispositions are healthier
Research shows that 70 percent of children in US and Canada are vitamin D deficient (due to lack of sunlight). They have more respiratory infections, flu, allergies and asthma compared to kids with adequate amounts. Vitamin D is vital for calcium absorption, and having calcium deficiency during adolescence has been found to increase risk for osteoporosis later in life. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that infants, children and teens take 400 IU per day. But in a study of teens, only those given 2,000 IU a day increased their levels to what is considered optimal.
Children also need vitamin D3 to:
- help the immune system fight infections
- prevent rickets (bone deformation)
- help absorb minerals including phosphorous
- prevent tooth decay
- help to balance blood sugar - important for weight management, moods and diabetes prevention
- promote muscle tone and strength
- help to prevent certain forms of cancer
Bring up brainy kids
Studies show that the majority of North American children eat too much processed omega 6 fats, and not nearly enough omega 3 fats. This may contribute to weight gain, moodiness, low energy, ADHD, allergies and infections. Omega 3 essential fatty acids are especially beneficial for learning, mood, behaviour, memory and concentration.
EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid)
From birth to age three, DHA is needed for brain and eye development. After that, both EPA and DHA are important for brain function, and may ease ADHD and developmental coordination disorder. DHA can also help to create better moods and reduce aggression in adolescents and teens.
How much do they need?
In a child’s brain cells, up to 50 percent of the fat is DHA, which cannot be made by the body, and must be consumed. Brain cells are healthier with more DHA because it makes them more fluid, allowing them to communicate more efficiently. Babies get DHA from breast milk (not infant formula), and older children can get it from fish, seaweed (sushi), seeds, and spirulina found in a Greens supplement. Dieticians of Canada recommend 350 milligrams of EPA/DHA per day.
Children also need Omega 3s to:
- improve immune function
- help alleviate acne, eczema and psoriasis
- help absorb fat soluble vitamin D3
- improve eye health (especially with DHA)
- develop a healthy nervous system
- increase their energy
- reduce cholesterol
Enerex Kids’ Mega 3D provides Vitamin D3 and Omega 3 fats (EPA and DHA) from wild fish body oils. These work together to help support your child’s immune system, heart and brain health, and bone and teeth development. They are easily taken in a tasty, chewable gummy form.

The cold-pressed, solvent-free wild fish oils that Enerex Kids’ Mega 3D uses provide 50 mgs of Omega 3 (5 mg EPA and 10 mg DHA), and when taken three times a day, offer 150 mgs fish oil with 15 mg EPA and 30 mg DHA.
The Enerex Advantage
What children don’t need? Many children’s chewable supplements have a high sugar content, and are artificially flavoured and coloured, which can lead to behavioural problems, fatigue and dental decay. Preservatives and fillers can cause allergic reactions.

Their natural flavours are made from strawberry, banana, orange, tangerine and lemon, and colours from carrot extract and turmeric.
