Why Omega-3s Are Great For Your Kids

We have all heard of the amazing health benefits of omega-3s, but have you heard how beneficial they are for your kiddos? When we think of omega-3 fatty acids, we usually think of fatty fish like sardines, anchovies and salmon, which are full of these health-boosting omega-3 fats. Kids aren’t typically attracted to foods that are full of these healthy fats, so luckily they have fun to take and delicious options with our pure, emulsified fish oil blends Coromega Kids Omega-3 Squeeze and Kids DHA Omega 3 Gummy Fruits


The top three benefits omega-3s have on children are: 

1. The development of a healthy Body and Brain; both which need lots of omega -3s during development.*

2. A healthy immune system with Omega -3s to balance inflammation*

3. A healthy psychological status*

Our scientific advisor, Dr. Doug Bibus explains why kids benefit from consuming omega-3s.

“Childhood is a period of brain growth and maturation. The long chain omega-3 fatty acid, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), is a major lipid in the brain recognized as essential for normal brain function,” said Dr. Bibus.  

He explains that animals with low brain DHA results in impaired learning and behavior. In infants, DHA is important for optimal visual and cognitive development. The usual intake of DHA among toddlers and children is low and some studies show improvements in cognition and behavior as the result of supplementation with polyunsaturated fatty acids including DHA.

According to Dr. Bibus, studies of brain activity have reported benefits of DHA supplementation and over half of the studies reported a favorable role for DHA or long chain omega-3 fatty acids in at least one area of cognition or behavior. Studies also suggested an important role for DHA in school performance.

Dr. Bibus also noted from his studies that omega-3s can also help manage kids on the autism spectrum, as well as reducing symptoms of ADHD, nutrient deficits, and can even improve the health of the child when the mother consumes enough omega-3s during pregnancy.

Our fish oil blend is high in DHA, with no artificial ingredients to interfere with your child’s health. The oil used in Coromega comes from small, deep, cold-water fish (sardines and anchovies) that are less likely to be contaminated. The oil then undergoes molecular distillation, which removes toxins, heavy metals and PCBs.

What Is A Healthy Omega-3 Level And Why It Matters!

Are you getting enough healthy omega-3s from your diet?  From your supplement?

By now, it’s well recognized that a diet rich in Omega-3s has a range of health benefits ranging from heart health, healthy hair and skin to crucial brain development in children and aging adults.*  You might be taking an Omega-3 supplement every day, but how do you know if it’s working or if you’re really getting enough?  We went to Dr. Doug Bibus, a scientific advisor for Coromega and a clinical nutritionist, who helped explain how an individual’s Omega-3 level is determined and why you should know your number. 

“Research shows that the majority of Americans are deficient in Omega-3s.  According to Dr. Bibus, the optimum Omega-3 range is 8% or above, but the U.S. average is almost less than half of that at 4.2%!  A study published in 2002 in The New England Journal of Medicine* suggests that Omega-3 blood levels at 6.87% are associated with a 90% relative risk reduction of sudden death from cardiac causes.

Getting tested for your omega-3 level is easy. A simple at home blood test will do the trick.  Just like you would test for your cholesterol or vitamin D, testing you omega-3 blood level will give you the best sense of where you are and what you need to do to get to a healthy level.  It will also tell you if you are getting enough omega-3s through your diet and if you are taking a supplement, is it working?

Coromega’s Omega-3 fish oil is emulsified for superior absorption.  In fact, it’s clinically proven to have 3Xs better absorption than fish oil soft gels*.   Why does that matter?  Well, it means your body will absorb more of the healthy benefits and will help to boost your omega-3 blood level. 

So do you fall in the in category of deficient or are you at a healthy level?  If interested in testing your omega-3 blood level, please contact Coromega at support@coromega.com.

Be Bright™ Superfood Oil Blend Pairs With Bulletproof® Coffee

You’ve probably heard of Bulletproof Coffee® by now. Currently trending among health-conscientious bloggers, magazines, and social media sites, this brew promises to “keep you satisfied with level energy for 6 hours”- eliminating the crash most people experience a few hours after drinking regular coffee. "Bulletproof Coffee is a great way to get healthy fats first thing in the morning," says Kerry Bajaj, a Be Well Health Coach at Eleven Eleven Wellness Center in New York City. Starting the day with healthy fats provides energy, is good for cognitive function, and supports your hormonal system." 

But what exactly is this “Butter Coffee”?  It is actually a blend of brewed coffee with butter and MCT oil, which stands for medium chain triglycerides and is comprised of the fat from coconut/palm kernel oil. The actual brand, Bulletproof® coffee, was created in 2010 by Dave Asprey, an entrepreneur in Silicon Valley who, legend has it, was "literally rejuvenated" after being given yak butter tea by locals after hiking in Tibet in -10 degree weather at 18,000 feet.  Asprey claims: ”It can promote brain function, memory, and energy levels. It can serve as a massive source of antioxidants and is associated with all sorts of positive health outcomes … you never feel hungry, get low energy …”

Which MCT oil to use?  People are using oils such as coconut oil and chia seed oil to get the healthy fats.  Coromega® has come up with a Superfood version of the original Bulletproof® recipe that allows you to reap the benefits of this brew while getting a daily dose of some of the best Superfood Oils.   We blended our new Be Bright™ Superfood Oil Blend (a Non-GMO blend of coconut oil, chia seed oil, hemp seed oil, avocado oil, black cumin seed oil) with an amazing cup of coffee and Kerrygold® unsalted butter for a ramped up version of Bulletproof® coffee.

Try this super-blend out for yourself using this 4-step recipe:

  • Brew 1 cup (8 oz.) of coffee (in order to obtain all the benefits of toxin-free coffee, use Upgraded™ Coffee)
  • 2 tbls. Kerrygold unsalted butter
  • 1-2 tablespoons of Be Bright Superfood Oil Blend
  • Mix it all in a blender (We recommend a Vitamix or NutriBullet) for 20-30 seconds until it is frothy like a foamy latte. 
  • Enjoy!

Stay Bright!

Fish Burps…Need We Say More?

We don’t know a single person who loves, or even enjoys, the taste or the smell of fish burps! We don’t even like them and can’t imagine why anyone would! Here’s a few quotes from some fish oil consumers that feel the same way: 

“It tastes fishy, haha, so I try to eat something sweet to take out that fishiness breath!” – Lauren Blancaflor

“So after taking my fish oil, I leaned over to give my wife a kiss and that’s when we knew we both wanted sushi.” – Gino Franco

“I’ve never had an embarrassing moments but it definitely was disgusting and not pleasant when it happened.” – Brandon Hetzler

“So recently, I was going on a date and was running late. Noticed I had run out of my fish oil gummies so I had to resort back to my dreaded liquid form. I didn’t even waste time to measure it out in a spoon. I just took a swig and bolted out the door. I finally arrived for my date and went in for a kiss and the awful smell - horrible smell - came rushing up right as our lips touched!” – Terrence Buchanan

“I started burping way more than I wanted to during my lifts at the gym. One of my belches was so bad that the people that were around my workout station started saying how it smelt like someone farted…after that, I changed my oils up and I take them before bed just in case, haha!” – Nico Silva

We say just say no to fish burps!  Coromega Omega-3 fish oil si smooth, delicious and easy to take.  Superior absorotion and purity with the fish burps!

A Smoothie To Love

Smoothies...With just this one word, our mouth begins to water. It’s amazing how easily smoothies can be made and how great they are when you’re on the go. If you’re not a smoothie lover – just wait until you see the smoothie we found from About.com’s Cooking For Kids article written by Stephanie Gallagher. 

Makes: 2 smoothies

Total Time to Make: 5 minutes


  • 3 cups frozen, unsweetened pineapple chunks
  • ½ cup unsweetened coconut milk (not cream of coconut)
  • ½ cup pineapple juice
  • 2 Tbsp. unsweetened shredded coconut
  • ½ cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 Tbsp. pineapple chunks for garnish (optional)

Once you have all your ingredients ready, place them into a smoothie blender and begin blending until ingredients are smooth. After serving, you can garnish the smoothie with pineapple chunks on top.

We think this smoothie is great on it’s own but would also be an excellent host to blend in either 2 teaspoons of our new superfood oil blend, be bright or even one squeeze pouch of our Coromega, Tropical Orange +D! 

Give it a try and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

Food Fit For An Egyptian King

In the world we live in today, black cumin seed oil is typically not an oil we automatically think of when we hear the words superfood oils. In fact, the most popular oil that many people first think of is none other than coconut oil. Well, we think coconut oil should make some room and share the spotlight with another superfood oil – black cumin seed!

Although black cumin seeds are in their infancy of being well recognized and wildly popular, their benefits are well known and their usage dates back to when Egyptian kings ruled. In fact, these tiny seeds were so treasured that they were often times found sprinkled in the king’s tombs! King Tutankhamen, also known as King Tut, was found with a bottle of black cumin seed oil in his tomb and it has been said that Queen Nefertiti has used these “magical” seeds to reap their benefits as well!

Here at Coromega, we wanted to take those same tiny seeds and include them in our new superfood oil blend, be bright. We believe that if Egyptian Kings were treated to such a great superfood, then you should too!

Providing the power of antioxidants, omega-6 fatty acids, linolenic acid and acting as a detoxifier, black cumin seed oil is truly a superfood that we are proud to provide you with! 

Are you currently taking black cumin seeds as a whole or in the form of an oil? Comment below to share with us how you reap these tiny seed’s benefits!

Hemp Seed Oil - It's Not What You Think!

If your first thought that comes to mind when hearing the word hemp is of the psychedelic drug, marijuana, you’re not alone! Many people often only think of hemp as a reference to this medicinal and recreational drug. However, you can rest assured our hemp seed oil is not to be confused with the commonly used drug. In fact, our superfood oil blend, which includes hemp seed oil, is extremely healthy for you! So much so, that we recommend taking two teaspoons a day!

Hemp seeds are even suggested to take in daily, which may come as a complete surprise if you were thinking of hemp only as a drug. Hemp seeds have been well recognized for their outstanding source of proteins, anti-oxidants, vitamins and omega-3, omega 6 fatty acids, fiber and iron! It’s no wonder why hemp seeds have been known to be one of the most nutritious foods on Earth!

How exactly do you consume hemp seeds or hemp seed oil in your daily life? Most people tend to lean towards adding these little seeds into their morning oatmeal, adding them to their healthy smoothie or even on top of their salads! There’s even people who add hemp seed oil on top of their salad as a dressing, sprinkled with some yummy pepita seeds and blueberries – we bet that’s tasty!

There’s so many different ways to consume hemp seeds and their oils in order to get their benefits. We’re just happy to say we’ve made it much, much easier for you to reap those benefits – and more! – by consuming our new superfood oil blend, be bright! Best part is that it’s vegan too…SCORE!

Avocado Superfood: Nature Knows Best!

Avocados might just be one of nature’s most delicious fruits known to man…well, at least we think so anyway! Their creamy texture and beautiful bright green color makes avocados such an easy fruit to gravitate towards. When looking for a quick breakfast, a delicious salad topping or the perfect game-day snack, avocados always seem to make a much-appreciated appearance – But did you know that these delicious fruits are much more than a palate-pleaser?

Considered a superfood, these tasty fruits are easily consumed by simply slicing one in half and spooning out the delicious green-goodness. Known for their fiber, potassium, vitamins and folic acid, avocados are making their way around many health food-lovers kitchens alike. However, there are a few other ways to reap the benefits of avocados. If you’re looking for beautiful and shiny hair, mashing up some avocados and adding them with a few other natural ingredients makes a great hair mask. Even cooking with avocado oil is a common way for today’s health-nuts to gain the great benefits for a healthy life.

Although consuming an avocado is fairly easy (yet a bit messy) and cooking with avocado oil is useful, we have created a super easy way for you to get those antioxidants, Vitamin E and monounsaturated fatty acids into your daily life by creating our new vegan superfood oil blend, be bright. This emulsified blend of oils includes coconut, chia seed, hemp seed, black cumin seed and, of course, avocado oils all mixed in to one delicious and tasty “treat”.

No matter how you wish to get the amazing benefits of avocados, one thing is for certain. Nature has given us one of the most nutritious and delicious fruits of all time!

Why You Should Love Chia Seeds!

 Chia seeds, the tiny, multicolored seeds that are often times recognized as the “jelly” specs floating around in your green drink or yogurt provide such a huge benefit for your overall health! It’s no wonder why these itty-bitty seeds have become such a popular and mainstream powerhouse food.

You may recognize these seeds from your 1980s and 90s ever-popular family potted plant but did you know these seeds popularity date all the way back to the Aztecs during the pre-Columbian times? In fact, these seeds were once referred to as the “Aztec Running Food.” This was because Aztecs used these seeds for their great benefits and were able to run for long periods of times because of the immense amount of energy chia seeds provided them!

Fast-forward to today and chia seeds are becoming more and more popular. People consume them by adding them to their drinks, yogurt, salad or even eating them as they are! Even the word of cosmetic beauty is calling “dibs” on chia seeds by using them as a part of a chia seed hair gel for maximum hair hydration, facial exfoliator and hydrating masks, eye creams and even for facial redness or scars.

Luckily, we don’t only believe in the great benefits these chia seeds can provide when used topically, but we love the advantages achieved when consuming chia seed oil. Everything from antioxidants and vitamin E to omega-3,6 and 9 fatty acids and even heart health 1 are just a few of the reasons why we love chia seeds and believe you should love them too!

We have made chia seeds our best friend and recommend you do too!
