Ascenta’s NutraSea +D, a delicious product containing EPA and DHA with Vitamin D AND 1500 mg. of Omega Three fatty acids arrived in the mail and I screamed: my doctor had just put me on Omega Threes (salmon oil tablets) and I could NOT digest them. I tasted FISH for three hours and Acid Reflux was a misnomer for the disturbing ALMOST-regurgitation urges I felt all day long. Brown Bagger (as in seasick) days! So when I reached for the APPLE flavored NutraSea and tasted it, I screamed again (genetic – it’s a disease called SCREAMING REVIEWER SYNDROME). Luscious, tasty and my hair jumped up and shouted HEALTHY AGAIN over and over.
I also received the Nutra Sea Kids and I screamed again. My granddaughter and grandson loved it! Since Omega Three’s are essential for heart, skin and hair as well as an all around healthy immune system, I was delighted to find that my kiddos loved the blueberry flavored liquid too! We actually went all over the web finding information out about Omega Threes and we had a blast doing it! Milo won – he got the best information and made a poster with little Omega Three Beings from the Land of Fish and No Fowl and he posted little Omega Three People with names like Heart, Hair, Nails and Body all over them – we felt like Jonathon Swift with the Lilliputians! I have been taking Omega Threes for years (no wonder I thought I had an ulcer – it was the Acid Refluxing Thingie!) and now I can sip a small concentrate in a Silver Spoon and get all the Omega Threes I need! THE OTHER GOODIE in this jar comes in the form of 1000 IU of vitamin D. My doctor just diagnosed me as having -0% of Vitamin D in my system; as an aging Diva, I avoid the sun like the plague, and wear 50 SPF sunscreen every day! Now that gives me The 10 Years Younger look, but I had no idea that I was hurting my (aging) body! See what Ascenta has to say on their website:
“Ascenta launches omega-3 + vitamin D – health in a teaspoon”
Atlantic Canadian developer of natural health products, Ascenta, announced today the launch of Nutrasea+D, its latest product innovation.
NutraSea+D combines Ascenta’s award winning and ultra-pure omega-3 fish oil supplement with 1,000 IU of vitamin D3 based on the latest research, all in a delicious tasting apple flavoured liquid. NutraSea+D also contains green tea extract, an ingredient exclusive to Ascenta which provides superior product stability and freshness.
“Excellent studies continue to tell us that omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D are essential for optimal health. Everyone, regardless of age and gender should be obtaining their daily dose through one easy step.” said Dr. Bryce Wylde, a leading authority in natural medicine and nutrition.
Omega-3 fatty acids are “good fats” that are essential for optimal health and should be obtained from the diet as they are not produced by the body. Scientific evidence indicates that omega-3 contributes to a healthy heart, healthy joints and a healthy mind.
Vitamin D3 is responsible for many regulatory functions in the body including bone mineralization and immune system health. Sunlight is the primary source of vitamin D, but given limited sun exposure due to seasons, indoor living habits and the use of sunscreen, up to 40% of people, from children to seniors have been found to be deficient in vitamin D throughout the year.”
Ascenta, thank you for showing up in my mail! There are 40 servings in a 200 ml bottle – less trips to the store! And priced so well – at about $25.00 per bottle, that’s less than the 2 bottles of Vitamin D3 I go through a month!
I love healthy products for me and the kids and this is one product that will stay in my house forever: Omega Threes ROCK!
