{Cool for School} NutraSea+D


Research has shown omega-3 and -6 to be beneficial for concentration and behavior, improved mood and ADHD in children, all benefits that contribute to a smooth transition back to school. I wasn’t able to try out the NutraSea Kids formula, so I was instead sent a 200ml bottle of NutraSea+D to review.

My Dad used to go on and on about taking different vitamins and supplements, Omega-3 being of the ones that he would mention more often than others. How many of us actually listened to our parents when they insisted we take our vitamins? I know I didn’t really listen to the numbers and facts he gave me, but now that I have read a little more on Omega-3 I see that it really is as important as my Dad made it out to be.

Vitamin D Facts

My Review: I took some of this myself and gave 1/2 tsp to my three older kids, and I am sorry but despite the product description I need to say that there is no delicious apple flavor. It was really quite disgusting taken by itself to be honest and would not recommend trying it that way. Thankfully, it can be mixed into salad dressings, pastas, yogurt, or a fruit smoothie and can be taken without the fowl taste being noticed. My kids had a fit after I made them try it and swore they wouldn’t take it again but I was able to sneak it into their foods without them even knowing. It is also available in softgel pill form which I would prefer to have for myself if I decide to continue taking NutraSea+D as a supplement since it does carry many health benefits for my entire family.

Even though we did not like the flavor, I would still recommend this product due to the health benefits it offers.
