 He is 4 years old. I give him 4 pills a day. I heard from it through a friend, that is a seller of shaklee. So I now am part of shaklee. its omega3, fatty acid,and DHA all in one. It takes some time to see a difference but it works.

I also give my 8 year old son fish oil and it works wonders! We use Nordic Naturals brand of Arctic Cod liver Oil capsules. The bottle says Childrens DHA across the front and they're sold at Byerlys, Coborns, Valley Natural Foods. Some stores you have to look in the natural foods section to find them. This is the only kind my son will take since he is extremely picky! (He also has HF Autism) He takes 6 of them a day. They are expensive though and the price varies depending on which store you buy them at.

I had my son on Fish oils. I used to give him one that worked wonders for him. But they no longer sell it where i live. I have tried several others, but nothing has given us any results other than the one that i can't find! ahhh



I think it depends on the child, just like everything else. I've tried different types of fish oils, and the one that did work was Health from the Sea A+ kids. It was a Salmon oil one. Even to give him Salmon Oil capsules, never the same effect as the one that did work. And now i can't find it anymore.

How long has he been taking them. I heard it takes a couple of months. I couldn't afford fish oil, and I heard apple cider vinegar has the same type of effect. It made a difference from the get go.
