Board Certified Pediatrician, Dr. Nancy O’Hara discusses the importance of probiotics and essential fatty acids in immune system support for children. Quality probiotics have billions of colony forming units and are best found in fermented foods. Good probiotics are usually refrigerated. Essential fatty acids are essential fats that the body does not make itself. Essential fatty acids are important for brain development. For young children DHA is important, for growing children EPA and GLA, in balanced amounts from oily fish, olive oil, macadamia nut oil and coconut oil are essential. When one cannot get enough essential fatty acids through food sometimes a high quality essential fatty acid product is needed. Talk with your medical care provider about the best probiotic and essential fatty acid sources or products for your child. Learn more at www.neurologicalhealth.org.
