Berry EFA Plus is the most delicious way for children (or adults) to take their Omega 3 Fish Oils. It tastes so great that kids think it's a dessert and gladly take their Tablespoon each day.
Berry EFA Plus is a very special fish oil independently tested to ensure the absence of detectable levels of mercury and other heavy metals, PAH's, PCB's and dioxins. It is made by emulsifying a pharmaceutical grade, molecularly distilled oil with fruit concentrates and prebiotic oligosaccharides. The result is a 'smoothie' with a delicious thick syrup consistency which will make you want to lick the spoon after taking it!
The new Berry EFA contains summer berry fruits, concentrated to remove water providing 30mg of anthocyanin antioxidants which is equivalent to a quarter cup (56g) of fresh berries.
Berry EFA can be taken directly from the spoon, or alternatively mixed into water, fruit juice, milk or any type smoothie.
Berry EFA is the same as the Fruit EFA Liqui in all respects except that a different fruit concentrate mix has been used which contains more antioxidants. How are Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) broken down in the body? Does it require much work from the liver?
EFAs are broken down in the gut (hydrolyzed) and the individual fatty acids are absorbed by the enterocytes lining the GI tract. The enterocytes assemble the fatty acids and glycerol into triglycerides.The triglycerides and other fat soluble nutrients are collected and assembled into chylomicrons, which are absorbed by the lacteals (lymphatic vessels of the small intestines). The chylomicrons flow with the lymph into the blood and reaches every tissue in the body. In the tissues the triglycerides are absorbed in a similar way as triglycerides are absorbed by the enterocytes. In the tissues the fatty acids can be metabolized into for example local hormones.
The hydrolization process in the gut requires lipase secreted by the pancreas and bile synthesized in the liver and secreted from the gallbladder.

Sublingually-absorbed anthocyanidins help to enhance immune function and protect cells from oxidative stress and damage. Studies show EPA is important for the regulation of blood pressure, blood clotting, and immune and inflammatory response. Increasing evidence indicates DHA is an important contributor to cardiovascular health by improving the overall blood lipid profile. It also plays a vital role in the functioning of the retina and the central nervous system, and it helps repair and regenerate neural tissue.
Berry EFA Plus is indicated for all cardiovascular disorders including hypertriglyceremia and congestive heart disease; for neurovegetative conditions; and for free radical damage, cataracts, and premature aging. Berry EFA Plus is a unique mixed berry and fruit concentrate exclusively formulated for palatability making it ideal for children and adults who dislike fish odor, and emulsified for individuals who have difficulty absorbing fats due to digestive dysfunction.
I give this to my son daily. He likes the taste and asks for more. It has improved his attention and memory.

I'm in my late 50's and I have had problems with slowly growing weight gain, increasing cholesterol, a decline in energy and enthusiasm and I have a congenital back problem.
My MD/ND put me on Berry EFA: over 9 months, I consistently lost 30 pounds, my energy level and enthusiasm were both back, and the inflammation around my back damage was negligible. I tried going without this for ~3 weeks, but started backsliding on all these great gains. I'd say it does everything it claims to do.
Love the taste

I give this to my son daily. He is usually very picky and he likes this. He even asks for more. Only drawback is since it is thick, it takes a while to pour it into the spoon.

very thick. Did not like the texture. Also has soy in it. But is a great product for anyone who can tolerate soy.
