Today’s freebie, the Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega-D3 supplement, will be awarded to 10 of our Appetite for Health fans to help them get their daily essential Omega 3-s (DHA and EPA) as well as vitamin D3, the most bioactive form of vitamin D. Today’s freebie is one of Nordic Naturals most popular concentrated formulas meaning you get double-strength EPA+DHA for increased omega-3 benefits in fewer soft gels.
I take a daily omega-3 fish oil supplement because I know I don’t eat enough fatty fish each week and with my risk factors for heart disease, it’s important for my health. Omega 3s are linked to reduced risk for heart attacks and stroke and help lower harmful triglycerides. In addition, they have anti-inflammatory action so that they help temper any inflammation that you may have in your joints or elsewhere.
Since my main form of exercise is CrossFit, my muscles are almost always sore. I have found that taking 1 gram of fish oils daily seems to help lessen the degree of muscle soreness after my workouts. Taking DHA and EPA means that you’re taking the right forms of the essential amino acids unlike getting your omegas from nuts, flax or other plant-based sources.
Ten winners will be chosen to receive one bottle of the Ultimate Omega-3 package (60 soft gels) which has a SRP of $28.95. You’ll also receive a Nordic Naturals T-shirt.
To enter, please be sure that you “like” us on Facebook and you should check out the Nordic Naturals “What’s Essential” contest on Facebook and leave us a comment below about why you want the essential omega 3s. The grand prize is a trip for two to beautiful Santa Cruz, California and second and third-place winners can win great prizes too. No purchases are required to enter or win and it’s open to residents of the US and Canada.
