Härnkoll - For your child's cognitive development and ability

Hjärnkoll is a unique dietary supplement developed for children, with a focus on cognitive development and ability. With a unique composition of important nutrients such as omega-3, iron, vitamin C, GLA and choline, Hjärnkoll is a supplement specially developed to support your child's cognitive functions. These functions include literacy, memory, logical thinking, and the use of numbers and language. Hjärnkoll consists of small, easy-to-swallow capsules and has a lemon-flavored surface so that your child can easily swallow them.

Omega-3 for the brain

Hjärnkoll contains the important and essential omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA, from high-quality fish oil. Omega-3 has many important functions in the body and contributes, among other things, to normal brain function in both children and adults and has also been shown to be very important for the development of the brain in infants.

The brain is rich in omega-3 and contains particularly high concentrations in the nerve cell membranes, which is crucial for the transmission of signals between brain cells. Omega-3 is also abundant in the hippocampus and frontal lobe. The hippocampus is a part of the brain central to learning and memory, while the frontal lobe is involved in cognitive functions such as planning, problem solving and emotional regulation.

Iron and vitamin C

Hjärnkol contains iron, which has a significant role in brain development, energy and the prevention of fatigue. Iron has been shown to be very important for the development of children's brains and cognitive abilities, and studies have shown that children who have an iron deficiency and were given iron supplements increased their results on intelligence tests and found it easier to read.

Hjärnkol is also boosted with vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant but which also helps the body absorb iron.

Choline's significant role in learning and memory

Choline is a B vitamin-like and essential nutrient that has a variety of functions in the body. Among other things, choline is important for fat metabolism but also the production of the signaling substance acetylcholine.

Acetylcholine, which is a neurotransmitter, is, among other things, important for the functions of the brain and nervous system. This includes a variety of cognitive processes such as learning and memory, but also attention and problem solving.

The important omega-6 fatty acid GLA

Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) is extracted from the evening primrose plant in the form of evening primrose oil. GLA is an omega-6 fatty acid that has several important functions in the body and functions, among other things, as a precursor to prostaglandin, which is a hormone-like substance produced in the body. Prostaglandins regulate many different processes in the body such as the hormone balance, the build-up of hair, skin and nails, the blood supply to tissues and have a protective effect on the body's nerve cells.

Omega-3 and GLA in powerful combination

The combination of omega-3 and GLA has become an interesting compound to study. Research shows that these fatty acids can have a significant effect for people with, among other things, ADHD where positive changes in hyperactivity, impulsivity, attention, learning and memory have emerged.

That omega-3 is important for normal brain function has long been known, but studies now show that a combination of the omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA together with the omega-6 fatty acid GLA can have a better effect on intellectual disabilities and cognition than taking only DHA and EPA.

Questions and answers

Who can eat Hjärnkoll?

Hjärnkoll is designed for children over 6 years of age, i.e. of school age, to promote cognitive development and function. Hjärnkoll contains a powerful combination of omega-3 and GLA, which in studies has been shown to have a positive effect on, among other things, ADHD and learning difficulties.

From what age do you eat brain milk?

We recommend them for children aged 6 and up. They are developed for the brain's cognitive development, which is important especially in school-age children. The capsules must be swallowed whole, so that is also an aspect of the age recommendation.

Can the capsules be opened?

The capsules are completely sealed and cannot be opened. If your child has difficulty swallowing the capsule, you can make a hole in it and squeeze the contents into any cold drink or on lukewarm/cold food.

Are there any flavors on the capsules?

The capsules have a surface that is flavored with lemon, but they are not chewable capsules, but must be swallowed whole.

The capsules vary in color between different batches, why?

The color of the capsules changes over time and becomes darker. It is the iron bisglycinate that reacts and gives a darker color. The pigmentation has no effect on the product's quality or function. The capsules are green/brown during production and become more brown with time.

Is Hjärnkoll vegan?

No, Hjärnkoll contains fish oil and the capsule is made of bovine gelatin.
