May 6, 2014—Nordic Naturals’ DHA Infant, the number-one selling baby’s omega-3 in the U.S., has been named the “Official Baby’s Omega-3” by the American Pregnancy Association. A non-profit national health organization, APA is committed to promoting reproductive and pregnancy wellness through education, support, advocacy, and community awareness.
DHA Infant provides a pure, safe, and effective way to ensure that growing babies from 5 to 35 pounds receive the important omega-3 essential fatty acids they need for optimal health. Scientific research shows that an adequate intake of the omega-3 DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is particularly vital for the healthy development of the brain, eyes and nervous system in infants.
“Nordic Naturals DHA Infant has been our official omega-3 for pregnant moms for years,” Brad Imler, APA president, said. “Because we trust their commitment to quality and because of our shared goal to foster health and wellness for both mom and baby, it only made sense to look to their products and expertise for our official baby’s omega-3. This is a natural next step in our partnership with Nordic Naturals.”
DHA Infant is made exclusively from sustainably sourced, wild-caught Arctic cod from the Norwegian Sea. The product is packaged in a 2-oz glass bottle with a measured dropper for easy addition to food or formula. Because Nordic Naturals omega oils do not contain gluten, GMOs, milk derivatives, artificial flavors or colors, DHA Infant is ideal for this delicate time of life. Like all Nordic Naturals fish oils, the product is third-party tested and surpasses strict international standards for purity and freshness.
“As a company, we understand that omega oils are essential to life,” Joar Opheim, founder and CEO of Nordic Naturals, said. “Most of the world is deficient in omega-3, and we are committed to changing that. Making sure mothers and babies receive adequate omega-3s during and after pregnancy is a part of that commitment. Our partnership with the American Pregnancy Association is helping us to achieve our goal of ensuring optimal health for moms and babies all over the world.”
