What do Arctic Cod, Sardines and Anchovies all have in common? Together they make up the Omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA found in the Nordic Omega-3 Gummies offered by Nordic Naturals. These delicious tangerine fish oil treats are designed and formulated for children aged 2 years of age or older.
It has been claimed that fish oil is helpful in reducing inflammation, arthritis, and symptoms of mental illness, as well as having a positive affect on the heart and decreasing the signs of aging. However, did you know that even children as young as two years old can benefit from taking fish oil on a daily basis? According to Nordic Naturals it can:
- Support proper brain, eye and nervous system development*
- Enhance learning, memory and focus*
- Promote a healthy immune system*
*Note: These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
The Nordic Omega-3 Gummies comes in a 60 count container that is designed to be easy for your child to chew thoroughly. They have a delicious tangerine taste...and I can say that, as I've actually tried it for myself and my kids actually asked for them! That's highly unusual! Plus, they are:
- Gluten Free
- Yeast Free
- Milk Derivative Free
- No artificial flavor, coloring or preservatives
The Nordic Omega-3 Gummies are designed to be delivered to you pure and fresh through Nordic Naturals patented "nitrogen processing" technique. This means fewer negative side effects such as burp-back.
My experience: My children are hesitant to try anything new. Especially if it is declared "good for them", so it was a little bit of a challenge to get them to try the Nordic Gummies. So, of course, I was the first one to try. I put it in my mouth and started chewing. The gummies are actually very good and in fact, remind me of the little candy orange slices that my grandfather used to give to me as a child. I at least appreciated the memory it recalled! After I ate mine and had no ill-effect, my youngest was eager to try. The recommended dose is 2 gummies, so I put two into his hand and two into my daughter's hand. My son immediately popped both of his in his mouth and chewed. No one spit it out! That was a good sign!! Over the course of the next few weeks, they continued to take their fish oil gummies. I was looking for signs of proper brain development...like maybe they would magically begin cleaning their rooms without being told, or maybe they would remember to bring home their homework from school. Let me assure you, this is no miracle cure and your child will still find excuses for not taking out the trash! For the most part, my kids simply ate these each day without incident. However, on about the second week of taking these, my daughter had her first complaint. I went to hand her the gummies and she says to me "I don't want to take mine, they give me the squirts". I wasn't certain if it was the gummies giving her problems or maybe it was something else that she had ate, so I let it go for a few days and she didn't take her gummies. Then, we reintroduced them back in to her daily routine, and a few days later, she had the squirts again. My son never had such a problem. He continued to take his until the bottle was empty. I don't know if the fish oils helped them in the way that it claims it could as I have no way in measuring this, but I do think it at least gave my children a better understanding of how to be proactive toward maintaining their physical and mental well-being. For that, I was thankful. Will we continue to take these? Since my daughter had the reaction she had, probably not, but only because I cannot afford to purchase more than one brand of supplement at a time. However, I like the fact that Nordic Naturals puts a great deal of research into the products they make, assuring the ingredients are safe for human consumption and that the fish used to produce the gummies are not an endangered species.
