If my son (17 years old) and my daughter (11 years old) benefit on omega, can I give them always or I should stop every few months?

Omega?: I'm not sure what you are asking. Are you asking about omega 3 and/or omega 6 fatty acids? If so, these are essential fatty acids, meaning they are essential for good health and just as important as essential vitamins, minerals and essential amino acids. It is impossible to maintain good health without them
