It is now easier than ever to stay healthy and vibrant as more and more companies find innovative ways to deliver the recommended daily allowance of essential vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids. “Mom” was recently introduced to three companies that will help you to stay on top of your game this summer and stave off that pesky summer cold, and you won’t have to swallow an oversized pill to reap the benefits!

Ascenta NutraSea DHA

Get your daily recommended dose of Omega-3 fatty acids in a liquid formula with NutraSea DHA, which can easily be added to smoothies or protein shakes! Recently launched, NutraSea DHA comes from the most eco-friendly and sustainable marine source: wild squid, which is typically caught for calamari. Much of the squid is not used for this, and has been regarded as waste, but actually contains 35% more omega-3 than wild salmon and 100% more than krill! Unlike most fish species, Pacific Squid has dramatically increased in numbers over the last 30 years, and is naturally resistant to overfishing due to an early reproductive age and a very short lifespan. NutraSea DHA is an ideal choice for pregnant and lactating mothers as well as seniors and individuals with cardiovascular and eye conditions. For more information on all Ascenta products, visit

Cold-EEZE® reduces the duration and symptoms of the common cold including cough, stuffy nose, sore throat, sneezing, post-nasal drip and hoarseness. This zinc-cold remedy is taken as a lozenge that dissolves on your tongue with a pleasant-tasting flavor!
