91% of all Americans (think moms, dads, babies, kids, grannies, and the in-laws) are deficient in omega-3s! It is also a fact that omega-3 deficiency is the 8th leading cause of preventable death in the US.
But what does all that mean exactly?
Being deficient in omega-3s means that your body is deficient in a nutrient that can help support many vital health functions. Omega-3s are made up of the essential fatty acids EPA and DHA, and are considered essential because they are required for optimal health. Because they cannot be produced by the body, they must be obtained through diet and supplementation. There are over 8,000 clinical studies conducted on omega-3s all pointing to the fact that omega-3s are good for your health. What is a mama or a papa to do?
Nurturing the family with love and providing them with a pure and tasty omega-3 supplement, together with including wholesome good food in the daily diet, is the easiest and most effective way to ensure mom and her beloved family are not part of this statistic. As we all know, it is often mom that guides the health decisions in the family and Nordic Naturals would like to celebrate moms all over the world!
Here are the benefits of omega-3s:
- Normal cardiovascular and brain function
-Healthy joints, skin and eyes
-Nervous system function
-A healthy pregnancy
-Proper brain, eye and nervous system development in young children
-Cellular health, brain and eye health, immune health and a healthy skin and coat for pets

The kiddos are huge fan of the gummies, and love both the berry and watermelon flavors. This is wonderful, since usually, convincing my children to take their supplements is a chore and a half! They actually look forward to their Nordic Naturals!
Last but certainly not least, we have our Yorkie, Trouble, and our cats. Yes! Omega-3s are essential for pet wellness, too! We have a dog and cats, and they aren't having any issues at all with the Omega-3 Pet.
Supplements alone aren't enough, though. A good diet is also essential for health and wellness. I am absolutely LOVING The Complete Mediterranean Diet. I am a huge fan of Greek and Italian cuisine, and this cookbook certainly doesn't disappoint. It's packed full of bright, colorful, delicious meals that not only delicious, but healthy, too!
As a mom, I want what's best for my entire family. Keeping them healthy and happy ensures that they will be around for a very long time, God willing. Nordic Naturals is helping me do just that.
A big thank you to all the moms out there for keeping the family running by making the best choices possible for them! Happy Mother's Day!
