Nordic Naturals Review & “What’s Essential” To Me

Nordic Naturals is the leading supplier of omega oil supplements and they are committed to providing the safest and most effective omega oils. One of their most popular products is the Ultimate Omega-D3, which provides exceptionally high levels of the omega-3 essential fatty acids EPA and DHA, in addition to 1000 I.U. of vitamin D3. Omega-3's are so important to our bodies health and well-being, including brain and eye function. The benefits of vitamin D3 is that it works to strengthen your bones and build a healthy immune system. This form of Vitamin D3 (or cholecalciferol) is better absorbed and utilized, since it is the type of vitamin D that is naturally produced by the body. The Ultimate Omega-D3 formula really packs a punch with double-strength EPA+DHA, so you get increased omega-3 benefits in fewer soft gels.    

Some of benefits of the Ultimate Omega-D3 formula are:
  • Enhanced calcium absorption
  • It supports optimal bone health and strength
  • It supports the immune and neuromuscular systems 
  • It moderates mood and sleep rhythms 

Recently, I had the opportunity to review Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega-D3. I have been taking them daily for a little bit now and I am quite impressed! The recommended dosage is two soft gels daily and initially I thought that the size of the soft gels was a little daunting, but they actually go down very easily. They say that the soft gels have a lemon taste to them, but I actually don't taste anything (which is ok with me!). Also, I don't get any "fishy burps" (phew!), which I have heard that some people have gotten from other brands. I have a healthy diet, but there are some days when I just can't eat enough fish, fruits, veggies and/or grains to balance my diet. I really love that this is a supplement that I feel good about taking to help fill in dietary gaps and to help my body to function at it's best. I have to keep up with an energetic toddler and that means that I need to take care of myself, so that I am healthy and full of energy too!

  Nordic Naturals believe that omega oils are essential to an extraordinary life and they want to know what's essential in your life too!

What's Essential to Me
 My Family

My favorite thing to do is to spend time with my husband and son. It doesn't matter what we are doing, as long as we are together. Our son is such a joy and a blessing! He is filled with wonder and loves to discover new things. I beyond blessed to be able to stay at home with him and watch him learn and grow. I get to see every little moment and I couldn't imagine it any other way! My husband is truly my best friend - he knows me better than anyone and I am so thankful for him. I love that we take time to enjoy all of the little things in life. He is truly my helper, my companion and he makes my days better! I never knew just how essential this would be to me! 

My Faith

God has always taken such great care of our family. He has blessed us beyond words and still continues to amaze me. I love knowing that God has taken care of us, will continue to take care of us and that He has greater plans for us than we could hope for. I love the stead-fastness of God. I take comfort in knowing that He protects us and loves us with a passion. I am filled with such great joy as I watch my son grow. I have so much hope for him and pray for him constantly! I am so am excited to see how God uses him and guides him as he grows.
Green Living

Over the past two years, I have been working at becoming more and more eco-conscious. It has become a passion of mine to live a more natural life and reduce the amount of toxins that come into our home and our bodies. For me, it started with cloth diapering my son! From there, as I continued to educate myself on living a more "green" life, we started making other eco-friendly choices, like joining a CSA, eating as much organic food as possible, using non-toxic cleaners in our home, starting our own vegetable garden and we look to reduce our waste wherever we can.


Yes, sunshine is actually essential to my health, well-being and my happiness! I live in Southern California, where it is sunny almost all the time. I love it! I thrive on sunshine! When the days are gloomy, rainy or cloudy, I feel like my happiness meter sinks. I love seeing the sunshine pour into our house in the morning, feeling the warm sun on my shoulders and how "sunny" I feel on bright, sunshine-y day!  

Nordic Naturals wants to know what's essential to you too! They are currently running a What’s Essential Contest where you can share what is essential to you and be entered to win a trip for two, to Santa Cruz, California!
