Ultimate Omega Junior and Vitamin C Gummies Review and Giveaway

I was fortunate earlier in the year- Nordic Naturals reached out to me to review their Baby DHA and Prenatal DHA products.

I used the prenatal DHA when I was pregnant, and while nursing my daughter. I loved them!

 I was very happy to be able to review 2 more products for my daughter- the Ultimate Omega Junior and the Vitamin C Gummies.


They also sent me another great assortment of samples, stickers, educational materials, chapstick and even mints.. unfortunately- my daughter swooped on the package before me, claiming all the goodies that she loved so much from the last review I did. 

It looks a lot like this though

I was able to get the oil sample for the dog before she took off though;) My dog loves the Omega-3 Pet Soft Gels! (hint hint- if anyone needs a mascot dog for this product, I have one adorable Basset Hound/German Shepard mix for hire. She even has her own blog;)

If you are not familiar with Nordic Naturals, you will really be impressed by them. They really want to educate their customers about the way that their supplements enhance health. They adhere to the strictest standards of quality to ensure that the supplements are not harmful- meaning free of toxic metals that can show up in fish oil. I encourage you to educate yourself at their site.

So onto the products.

Disclaimer- since my daughter is under the suggested children's age for the products, I only gave her half a gummie at a time to be certain there was no issue.  I sampled the Omega Junior.

Ultimate Omega Junior

Here are the facts sent over from Nordic Naturals:

  • Double-strength EPA+DHA formula 
  • High-intensity support for healthy brain, eye, and nervous system function in ages 5 and over
  • Smaller soft gel ( half size)
  • 640 mg omega-3s in 2 gels

I will say that the Omega Juniors are labeled as gels that you can either chew or swallow.. personally, I am not a huge fan of gels being chewed in my mouth- that is a personal preference, so I did swallow them. There was a pleasant strawberry flavor. I will not lie- you can taste some fish to the product, but I have seen no pill on the market that is tasteless. This one is the best, and it is gone fairly quickly. My daughter never minded anything with a fish flavor to it, so it really isn't an issue for her. If your child can swallow this gel, you might want to start there first to be safe:)

Vitamin C Gummies

 -For ages 4 
 -250 mg vitamin C 
 -No artificial coloring, flavoring, or preservatives
 -100% vegetarian

The benefits of vitamin C on the body have been well published and known for years.. why do you think your mom always told you to drink your orange juice when you were sick? These gummies are a great way to save your kids from drinking all that sugar in a juice every day, and pack all your vitamin C into 2 little tasty gummies. The tangerine flavor is great. Mu daughter thinks they are candy- I just put one on her breakfast plate every day, and without fail, it is always the first thing to disappear. Even if she shuns the food, she inhales her gummie!

This review round, there is a great program going on at Nordic Naturals- Buy To Give.

When you purchase one of their products from that special link, a backpack stuffed with supplies is provided to a child in need. They are committing up to $20,000 for this project this year. You really can't lose!

Thanks again to Nordic Naturals for another great swag bag and a couple of incredible products!

And one more bonus- Nordic Naturals wants to give you something! - the 2 bottles of supplements that we tried.
