Coromega Omega 3 Squeeze Sponsor Spotlight Review

That was a long winded title to have to put up there, let me tell you! I am not 100% sure I can still say it correctly but here goes. We were very fortunate recently to get to sample some of Coromega's Omega Squeezeable vitamins in an array of flavors:

1. Lemon Lime
2. Orange
3. Chocolate Orange
4. Tropical Orange
5. Juicy Orange

Sounds like they are almost the same thing, huh? All orange? I guess because out of everything, orange is something that can be mixed with just about anything and it will taste good enough for you to either drink it or eat it. And that is the beauty behind the squeezable packets. They are easy to carry in your purse or pocket and can be nipped and squeezed onto your food or I guess you could mix it with water or any other beverage but not so sure how that would come out. I can tell you this, they have taken on a promise to get every American to the 7.2 or higher level of Omega 3's by 2015 so that we will all be healthy! Here are the 10 top reasons why we all need to have healthy levels of Omega 3 levels which is 7.2:

1. The intake of the recommended amount of DHA and EPA was shown to have healthy benefits
2. To support healthy triglycerides
3. To keep your brain functioning at its best
4. To support the body’s natural anti-inflammatory response
5. To maintain healthy mood
6. To maintain healthy eyes and good vision
7. To support joint health and mobility
8. To balance omega-6 (which we get too much of the American diet) and promote omega-3 metabolism
9. To make sure every cell in your body has the omega-3 it needs
10. To be your best and keep your body running strong1

I know that I really need help with #2 because my trigs are not good at all but that is because of the Fibromyalgia and RA. I don't have the energy most days to even get on my computer, let alone exercise. Plus, all the foods that don't have alot of potassium in them are the higher calorie foods, especially sweets. And then here is the other bad news for me, I could not take any of these because of the citric acid in each flavor. Remember I have the chronic bladder pain that just about kills me if I drink or eat anything acidy or with potassium. So, my husband and my friends were the testers for me on this one.

If you would rather stick to the soft gels, they have those also. They have gummy fruits for children also. Coromega has tried really hard to make this as easy as possible or to taste good enough that you can tolerate taking them without too many problems. You can check out all the different kinds of forms and flavors they have by checking the Product page on their website.

These were just a few samples of how you can really get creative and put your Coromega 3's. I think out of all of them I could do yogurt. But I can't have many of those either. Who would have thought yogurt would be high in potassium! So, I only have them once in awhile to keep from getting too much potassium. But for the rest of you the possibilities are endless! I think that the smoothie really looks good, too!
They have really neat vitamins for children also! You can get the squeeze packs along with the gummy fruits for those who don't mind chewing their vitamins. I know some children are very stubborn about vitamins so the squeeze one would work by putting it in their orange juice or favorite flavored water. Either way they get the same dosage and the same benefits.
To make things even more fun for them Coromega has made some down loadable fun masks of their vitamins for them to wear and enjoy:
Just click on the above image and it will take you to where you need to be and just follow the directions! Easy as Pie! I think they will have lots of fun playing around with these. Here are some suggestions to what Coromega thinks might help you get your children to take the vitamins:

Unfortunately fish isn’t usually one of our kids’ favorite foods –have you ever tried fish pizza? That’s why we developed a yummy, squeezable alternative, like a Go-GURT®, to provide the critical Omega-3 little ones need for healthy brain and body development with cute animal friends that make it fun!

Here is what I found under About Us:
It all started when a little girl in Norway wouldn’t take her fish oil. Norwegians don’t handle such news well. So her grandfather, who happened to be a renowned scientist, set to work to find a solution to this pesky problem. His discovery later became Coromega; a way for his loved one to get her Omega-3 in a way she enjoyed.

After almost ten years of development, Grandpa Johan finally perfected the patented emulsion formula we use today. What a thought – make an Omega-3 supplement that actually tastes great.

Since 1999, we have produced the most advanced delivery form of Omega-3, and have done Grandpa Johan proud by making it into incredibly tasty, natural citrus flavors with no fishy taste. As they say, the proof is in the pudding – and we’ve made it easy, just squeeze!
