Nordic Naturals GIVEAWAY

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


I received a generous package of products and samples from Nordic Naturals.


My initial interest in reviewing for Nordic Naturals was the Baby's DHA product.  Luke has been taking an Omega 3 supplement, but it's in squeeze packets.  Imagine trying to squeeze a catsup packet into a shrieking moving target, and you'll understand why a dropper was so much more appealing to me.


Nordic Naturals' Baby DHA is made from Gold Standard Arctic Cod Liver Oil.  It's a safe, effective way to ensure that growing babies and toddlers get the DHA they need for healthy development.  It is 3rd party tested, and surpasses international standards for purity and freshness.  As you can see from the chart below, the dosage goes up to Luke's weight, even though he will be 3 this summer, so it's not just for babies.


Their Baby DHA is far from their only product, however!  I particularly liked the Vitamin C gummies.


The sample was soft and a little bit sour, but not puckery sour.  I liked them!


This would be a painless way to get extra Vitamin C in during cold season.


Since I am not pregnant, and have no intention of becoming so, I passed along the prenatal vitamins to an expectant mama at homeschool park day.  I'm starting to get a reputation as the sample lady for all the fun things I am able to share.  Any time we head out to meet up with friends, I grab my "bag o' loot" with Lego magazines and an assortment of sample products to pass out.

We had Zyto scans done recently, and 2 of my kids scanned for Omega 3 supplementation.  Given the half dozen different samples of Omega 3 supplements Nordic Naturals sent us, we were able to try out some options and figure out what will work for them.

The lip balm went into my purse, and gets used frequently.  It's a no-frills, colorless, fragrance free balm, much like a favorite yellow brand that I use.

Since I couldn't find Nordic Naturals at Safeway, I went to their store locator on the website, and discovered that the vitamin shop one of our neighbors owns carries this brand.  I have a coupon for the fish gummies, and I'd like to try them for Jack, since he doesn't care for squeeze packets, but he's not quite swallowing pills yet.

Nordic Naturals would like to send YOU this fun package of products to try out, too!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

    1. Whoops! Good catch, Jess! I accidentally forgot to update the question from the Australia book giveaway Rafflecopter. How about, "Do you currently take supplements, and if so, what types?"
