With Mother's Day right around the corner, a lot of us are thinking a lot about the meaning of family. Family means a lot of different things...They're our ride or dies, our soft place to fall when the world feels cold. No matter how you think of family, it all boils down to one thing: Love. Since we love our families, we want to make sure they're well cared for, happy, and healthy.
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!
Nordic Naturals is driven by a mission to eliminate the global omega-3 deficiency and to help people of every age live a better life. As the # 1 fish oil company in the US, they invoke a set of very high standards when producing their products. One of these standards is TASTE because in order for a fish oil to taste good it has to be outrageously fresh and if it doesn’t taste good, you won’t take it. Ensuring their products are PURE is the next important standard as they believe a fish oil supplement should be obsessively tested for high quality and they don’t just say it, they prove it. And finally LOVE, when Nordic Naturals manufactures their fish oil products they will not stop until it is passionately perfected, because nothing less will do. Their love for what they do and the people they do it for drives them to do it right at any cost. They do what they do for health, for the health of your children and your children’s children.
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

· Children’s DHA
· Probiotic Gummies KIDS

· Baby’s DHA
· Omega-3 Pet

We are all loving our Nordic Naturals omega-3 supplements. They are convenient and easy to take, and they don't leave a gross, rancid, fishy aftertaste. I actually don't eat seafood at all, so this is a HUGE plus for me!
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!
