FAQs for Omega-D3
1. Why did
Dr. Connealy create this product?
Connealy stays on top of the latest research coming out on dietary supplements,
and is a strong believer in the benefits of omega 3 fatty acids (particularly
EPA and DHA) and Vitamin D.
omega-3 products come from fish and krill, and many are concerned about the
environmental impacts of overfishing these vital resources. And the latest
research suggests that DHA may be a particularly important omega-3 for
D is now recognized as one of the most critical nutrients, not only for bone
health, but also for immune and overall health Yet over one-third of Americans
are Vitamin D deficient. Limited sun exposure and the use of sunscreen limits a person's ability to produce Vitamin D, and, as we age, insufficient vitamin D is even more likely. Dietary sources of
vitamin D are rare and the winter season and living at higher latitudes limits
your sun exposure and increases your need for supplementation.
Dr. Connealy was particularly excited to find Calamarine—a novel omega-3 product
from squid rather than fish, that is naturally high in DHA, comes from a highly
sustainable source (squid) and is caught using eco-friendly techniques.
Combined with vitamin D, this product offers the ideal way to get the benefits
of these powerful nutrients in one, easy to use product.
Please Note: Dr. Connealy has designed all of the NNH supplements so that they can be safely taken as stand-alone supplements or in combination with each other. Therefore, it is perfectly fine to take both Omega-D3 and Complete Cardio Solution together and receive the benefits of a higher dosage of Omega-3s & Vitamin D3.
