A study shows that children who eat 600mg of omega 3 a day in the form of food supplements slept more and especially woke much less often at night than children who had not received supplementation with omega 3.
Why? Because DHA, or cervonic acid, contained in certain types of omega 3 activates sleep by increasing the level of melatonin, the sleep neurotransmitter.
According to Dr. Mercola, krill oil is the best source of omega-3 rich in EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docasahexanoic acid). Krill oil would have the advantage of containing phospholipids that ensure better assimilation of these valuable active ingredients that are EPA and DHA. Krill is a micro-shrimp caught mainly in the icy waters of the Arctic and Antarctic oceans, which whales in particular feed on.
Come on, good night, young and old ;-)
