Omega 3 fish oil

I give my son 3 gummies every morning before school. In the afternoons he still has trouble focusing but overall is doing much better in school. I am just wondering if I should increase the dosage. Haven't been able to find much on the exact recommended dosage. The bottle says 3 gummies but I know the labels are usually come out on the low side of the dosage.

Ok, this is our experience..

We had read an article about this, a study by scientists in NJ.
Anyway, ....we decided to give it to our Shane, who was 3 and a half at the time. He has aspergers and spd, so far, LOL

Anyway we figured it was natural and couldn't hurt.
My husband and i had been taking it for years.
And we said it CANT hurt him, and didn't expect to see anything anyway. Even a tinge of change would have been beyond our expectations.
WELL, within 4 days he was ENGAGED...HUGE........
I asked my husband , i thought maybe i was crazy??
He was freaking out also when i said it,
He was like, "I cant believe it!!"
We asked everyone give their opinion, and all agreed!
"I thought i was looking too hard or something", ..............
We could not believe it...
But i tried to turn everyone on to this, and obviously, each of our children are different.............
Some kids wont take it, some parents dont stick with it, so i cant HONESTLY tell you about anyone elses experiences but ours, LOL
IT WAS FANTASTIC, "but" we were also very lucky that he would even swallow it........
But, thats our story, he still has his DX, OT, social speech, and behavioral support, LOL,..... of course, but it helps so much to be able to get him engaged. We had pretty much nothing before that.
How we learn to count the little blessings, huh???
We bought, "Eskimo kids" Omega 3-6-9, it has to be a complete balance.
Its one Tsp. a day.
Give it try, CANT hurt............
Good luck and God Bless you and your family!
