It all started with a doctor's appointment.
Last week I brought my boys to the doctor to get their flu shot. My boys had not been to the doctor for a check up for quite some time so in order to get their flu shot they had to have a wellness visit check-up. The nurse informed me that my 9-year old would be getting his cholesterol checked as this was something new they were doing. I talked with the nurse about how sad it is that they have to check cholesterol in kids, thinking that my kids did not need it as they eat healthy and exercise. The nurse took some blood from my son's finger and I thought to myself that his numbers would be fine. I was so wrong. The doctor informed me that his number was 185 and a healthy number should be less than 170. Granted my son did eat a peanut butter sandwich before the visit and the test should be done with fasting. The number may have been lower if my son had fasted, I don't know. Well, that got me to thinking that even active skinny kids could have high cholesterol if there was a family history. My family has a history of high cholesterol so I needed to help my kids have healthy hearts. I was already feeding them healthy food so I knew it was time to start my boys on an omega supplement.
I was not sure if I could get my younger boys to take an omega supplement as that would mean swallowing a pill. So when SeabuckWonders asked me if I wanted to sample one of their many products, I thought of my boys and the need for a small sized omega pill. SeabuckWonders had an Omega-7 Complete that was not only small in size but had benefits beyond the Omegas 3,6,7 & 9. Their blend of berry and seed oil contained vitamins too, like C, C, B1, and Betacarotene. This gel cap , which was made from Organic Sea Buckthorn oil, would keep my boy's heart healthy while giving them immune support. My boys can always use extra immune support. Did you know that omegas are also great for the skin, liver, and gastrointestinal?
The orange bottle of Omegas arrived in the mail and I discussed with my boys why I wanted them to take these. I told them about the high cholesterol number at the doctor and how I wanted them to have a healthy heart. The youngest was excited to try the Omega-7 gel cap, as he had a sample in the past that was lemon flavor. I informed my youngest that these had to be swallowed. He took the challenge of swallowing the pill to show his older brother that he could do it. The small gel cap was easier for my son to swallow so his older brother decided to try one. He also had no problem swallowing this small gel cap. Yea, score one for mom! I placed the bottle of Omega-7 Complete in the cabinet next to the probiotics that my boys take. I told my boys that I want them to have healthy hearts so they could run fast and that they could have one omega cap a day along with their probiotic. The next day my boys asked if they could have the omega pill and of course, I said yes.
