I'm excited to share these with you because I LOVE vitamins! I'm a firm believer that the more natural you go in medicine, the better. Always better to prevent than to treat, etc. etc. I even used to manage a retail vitamin store, back in the day!
I was given the opportunity to give four New Chapter products a trial run, and I'll be posting all four reviews as I go through them. After the very last one, one lucky Serial Access Mom reader will be lucky enough to win a full-sized bottle of their choice from the four reviews!
Have you ever opened up a bottle of store-bought, possibly-generic fish oil softgels and smelled it? Chances are, it smells pretty terrible. Fishy, musty, and just plain gross. You probably don't want to put those pills in your mouth now, am I right?
New Chapter's Wholemega is here to show you that not all fish oil is created equal!
Right after opening the bottle I could tell that these were no ordinary omega-3 softgels. The bottle doesn't stink, and they're beautiful transparent gold in color. Here's a bit about them from the site:
"Wholemega is a true expression of nature’s wisdom. By using only sustainably caught Alaskan salmon – among the world’s cleanest and most pure fish stocks in the world – chemical processing to deliver purity is not required. Our extra virgin, low-heat process is all that’s needed to deliver Nature’s whole basket of vital Omega fatty acids and naturally beneficial nutrients, like Vitamin D3 and Astaxanthin. As a FOOD GRADE oil, Wholemega is extensively tested for detectable contaminants that other fish oil products must “purify” or distill out.
Wholemega, however, delivers an oil that is striking in color and transparency. The brilliant hue in Wholemega comes from Astaxanthin – an extremely powerful antioxidant that is naturally found in wild salmon and abundant in this extra virgin fish oil. The gentle process used to extract Wholemega preserves this antioxidant as well as numerous other beneficial compounds – including Vitamin D. In fact, this whole oil is delivered from a government inspected FOOD GRADE facility."Natural omegas have been researched and are found to help with many ailments. Everything from lowering triglycerides to easing joint and arthritis pain. I even attended a seminar a year or so ago where a specialist linked most every ailment imaginable to cellular inflammation...which the omegas can help soothe!*
These omega oils should be taken with food, twice daily for full benefit.
Purchase: You can buy Wholemega in 4 different sizes (and different formulations, including a prenatal!) at BestPriceNutrition.com.
