Is Efalex safe for kids? Efalex is designed for people of all ages but may be especially applicable for growing children.
Helps Learning Skills It is estimated that as many as 3% to 5% of school age children have difficulty focusing and learning. Scientific studies have shown that certain individuals with learning difficulties may be deficient in certain fatty acids. These fatty acids are Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) and Arachidonic Acid (AA). They are the predominant structural fatty acids in the brain and retina of the eyes.
Eye and Brain Health A number of long chain fatty acids are extremely important for vision, brain function and coordination. These are docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), arachidonic acid (AA) and gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). AA is required for normal transmission of messages along nerves and for the laying down of memory. DHA is a building block of all nerve cell and eye membranes. [1-3]
The key step to the body's use of dietary fatty acids is the metabolism of LA to convert it to GLA. There are times when the body's ability to do this is reduced. This results in a deficiency of long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPs). The LCPs form part of the membranes around and within every cell in the body and play an extremely important role in eye and brain activity. [1-3]
DHA and AA are both needed for normal nerve cell and eye membranes, as well as the normal transmission of messages along and between nerve cells. About 20% of the brain and 30% of the eyes are made up of fatty acids, with the most abundant being docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and arachidonic acid (AA). [1-3]
ADD and ADHD A deficiency in fatty acids may result in symptoms such as dry skin, increased thirst and frequent urination and has been found in some individuals with ADD and ADHD. [1-3]

When I called Rockwell Nutrition to recommend a product for kids with ADHD symptoms they recommended Efalex. I have been pleased by the results. I believe this product gives my kids the ability to self-control much better. They seem to be concentrating better as well. We combine this product with Cognitive & Calming and see subtle yet positive results..

I read about Efalex in the book: The LCP Solution: The Remarkable Nutritional Treatment for ADHD, Dyslexia, and Dyspraxia. We started giving it to our daughter about a year ago and have seen improvement in ADD-type symptoms, handwriting, spelling, learning, and her ability to deal with frustration. We are extremely happy with this product!

We are using this product for my son who has some developmental delays and we feel it is making a small difference at the least.
