When I became a mom one of the first things that dawned on me (after the no sleep haze lifted) was I am now responsible for someone else's well being. That was more than a little daunting. But it really forced me to reevaluate my own health and choices I made. One of our favorite brands that helps us stay healthy is Nordic Naturals.
Celebrate Mom with Nordic Naturals! Read on to see why Omega-3s are important and to enter for a chance to win a Nordic Naturals prize pack!
Did you know? 91% of all Americans 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. Yikes! 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.
I do not want myself, my husband, or my children to be a part of this statistic. And I'm sure no other mom wants this for her family either! So let's talk about diet and supplements, and see if we can improve the health of our families together.
You may have been reading lately about the benefits to following the Mediterranean Diet. The reason it is gaining popularity and viral status is because it helps combat obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. I'd say those are good enough reasons to make the switch don't you? One of America's leading advocates for heart disease prevention and board certified cardiologist Dr. Michael Ozner has written a book focusing on educating the hows and whys of the Mediterranean Diet as well as sharing delicious recipes. One of our new family favorite recipes from The Complete Mediterranean Diet by Dr. Michael Ozner is Chicken and Spicy Hummus!
The other side of the coin from diet is supplements. Nordic Naturals offers a variety of them perfect for each member of your family! Even our pets get the omega-3s they need! You can always count on Nordic Naturals to be made from the best ingredients out there. We LOVE our Nordic Naturals and daily take their multivitamins and DHA supplements.
Those probiotic gummies are new and very tasty!
Nordic Naturals is on 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.
Thank you to all the Moms out there for all your hard work, sacrifice, love, and caring for your families!

Emily, Our house now a home
I was not familiar with these before, I will have to look into them. Thanks!
I need to be better about looking into supplements or at least making sure I eat what I need. As you age your needs change too.
We enjoyed family time at a local Sunflower Festival.

Well this is a useful gift. I have heard of these supplements, but have never tried them.
Being responsible for a new baby can be so overwhelming! It is so important for Mom to take care of herself too!
Interesting. I have not seen this before. Great giveaway!! I would love to try this.
We celebrated by visiting our local farmer’s market.
Great giveaway! For Mothers day my boys and husband let me do whatever it is I want and don’t bother me! I feel so loved and this year I was able to share that with my mom!
Erin @ Stay At Home Yogi
I’ve never heard of this brand so I’ll have to check it out. My husband takes a fish oil supplement currently. I love how you said having kids made you more concerned about your own health, that has been true for me too.
We celebrate mother’s day by having a big dinner for all our family. My husband cooks!
This year we just got a cake.
We have a cook out and a pot luck with family
We lost our mother last year, so my sisters and I celebrate mom on her birthday with a Sister’s Weekend trip!
We didn’t go out this year. Instead we had a family get-together and backyard cookout.
I’m a HUGE fan of Nordic Naturals, they offer some great products! The Omega’s I take don’t smell like other brands I have tried. These ones actually have a lemon scent, which helps! Thanks for the opportunity to win!
