Q.

Omega' s

I am currently buying one of the imported omega combination capsules for my children, (10 &  9 ) These are so expensive! Are the ingredients essentially the same in the local products ie: Dischem range, can i give them a combination of the Salmon oil and Evening Primrose oil and what is the ideal combination and haw many times a day?

Dear Paul,
As I do not know what is in the particular supplement you are importing, I suggest comparing the contents of the bottle of the imported omega's with various products available locally; perhaps with the assistance of a pharmacist. The most beneficial dosage depends on your children's weight and their diet, again consulting with a pharmacist may be beneficial.
Kind regards,
Delia
