Boost kids’ brains with DHA supplementation

Croda’s smart ingredients for kids

Children need to be provided with a nutrient-rich diet that can meet the needs of their growth and development. The essential fatty acid DHA is a vital nutrient for their brain functioning1.

Croda’s comprehensive range of essential fatty acids (EFAs) allows you to offer condition-specific supplements to improve the concentration and brain development of your children. Our high purity Incromega ™ concentrates also mean you achieve maximum Omega 3 content per capsule - allowing smaller, more child-friendly capsules.

Our ‘smart ingredients’ package of high purity lipid concentrates can benefit your children by:

  • Improved concentration and learning2
  • Having a calming effect on their behaviour3
  • Having a positive effect on the behaviour of children suffering from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder4
  • Treating Developmental Coordination Disorder/dyspraxia2
