Q.

Omega + Zimaflor

I would like to change my childs omega supplement to Eye Q. On the box it says that you need to take 6 caps per day for 12 weeks and then 2 per day.

If my child (8) has been using omega for 1 and a half years can I just give him 2 or must he also take 6 first?

My other question is how do you know what quantity zimaflor to give your child. I don''t know how much fluoride is in his drinking water. Please assist. I am giving him 2 at the moment. Thank you!!

You can use the regular Omega3 capsules 100mg per day. If your son cannot swallow the capsule cut it open and squeeze the contents onto a small amount of food. Your son no longer needs to be on Zymoflor. He can simply use a toothpaste containing fluoride.
