Why You Should Love Chia Seeds!

chia image

 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!

Be Bright Ingredient Highlight: Coconut Oil

You don’t have to go far to enjoy the delicious taste of coconut oil! Be Bright’s featured ingredient, coconut seed oil, is one of the fastest rising ingredients stars and is the key ingredient that makes Be Bright so appetizing.

Coconut Oil is known for a great deal of uses from cooking to even health! While virgin coconut oil contains 90% saturated fatty acids, it also contains high amounts of medium-chain triglycerides, which are more easily absorbed than their more common long chain counterparts, and may provide loads of energy!

And that’s not all! Coconut oil isn’t just great for your health, it may be used as a moisturizer for skin and hair when used externally. The high volume of vitamin E allows for reduction in absorption of toxins and pesticides on your skin.

Coconut oil is a heart-healthy food that keeps our bodies running smooth and beautiful in so many ways. Do you enjoy the benefits of coconut oil? If so, tell us why! Post a comment or send us a message on our Facebook.

Fish Oil Burps Are Gnarly!

Taking a fish oil supplement to satisfy your daily omega-3 needs is a great thing to do for your body and your health! Of course, if it is your first time taking a fish oil softgel, one thing you may – or may not – be aware of is the unpleasant side affect that happens after taking these pills.

No, we’re not talking about the fishy taste left inside your mouth after swallowing one of these softgels. We’re talking about the ever popular (and widely hated) fish burps!


These disgusting burps are exactly what they sound like – burps that stink and taste of fish.  Yuck!

This unpleasant odor is a direct result of your stomach digesting the softgel and absorbing it into your body to provide you with the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids. When digestion begins, sometimes your body creates a build-up of gases and the way to rid your body of these gases is by burping. Since the fish oil softgel you swallowed is the cause of this gas build-up, the odor that is expelled is the scent of fish.

With this icky side-effect, it’s no wonder why many people steer clear of fish oil softgels. There is nothing pleasant about belching fish odor during an important interview, on your wedding day or even right before a romantic kiss!

Here at Coromega, we are proud to say our products will not only give you all the benefits of Omega-3, but they will do it without the icky fish burps, fishy taste or aftertaste.  How can we do this, you ask? Our patented emulsion formula allows your body to absorb omega-3 in the most effective and advanced delivery form possible. It’s as though we have already taken the fish oil and have digested it for you, making it easier on your body to absorb and reap the benefits of omega-3. In fact, the original Coromega Squeeze is clinically proven to be 3 times better absorbed than fish oil softgels.*

Don’t go another day with icky fish burps. Chose Coromega and surprise yourself, and thankfully those around you, with the delicious citrus taste and best of all no embarrassing fish burps! All the benefits without the burrps.

Feeling Blue? Get Orange…Tropical Orange!

Welcome to 2014, a new year rich with possibilities and opportunities! While many of us are feeling a renewed sense of anticipation for the year ahead, some of us can’t shake a feeling of sadness or fatigue that mirrors the grey skies that accompany the season. In some cases, wintertime produces a lack of daylight and fuels the onset of seasonal affective disorder, or SAD.

SAD and Sunlight

Experts believe that SAD is brought on by hormonal changes in the brain. Many say that reduced sunlight and Vitamin D can lead to reduced production of serotonin in the brain, a hormone that affects happiness.

In most cases, people with SAD experience mild symptoms, such as irritability, while others experience more serious effects such as depression.

Coromega Omega3 + D

SAD is a serious disorder that can affect your whole life. Aside from laughter, prevention is also known as the best medicine and Coromega Omega3 + D is a great place to start!


Available in a delicious Tropical Orange flavor, the newest squeezable supplement promotes much-needed Vitamin D absorption, while still providing all the benefits and essential nutrients of fish oil into daily diets. The uniquely emulsified Coromega Omega3 + D delivers the same amounts of DHA and EPA (230 mg and 350 mg accordingly) as the traditional Omega3 Squeeze, with the addition of 1,000 IU of Vitamin D3 per pouch.


In addition to taking Coromega, don’t forget to try and exercise 30 minutes a day, three times a week, maintain a well-balanced diet of foods rich in vitamins and minerals, and get involved within your community! Tapping into your social support is a great way to stay active and surround yourself with friends.


This winter, get your own tropical sunshine with Coromega Omega3 + D and boost your mood and the moods of loved ones around you! As they say, smiling is contagious.

Horse Pills Are For Horses!

Many adults and children find it hard to swallow large capsules or simply dislike taking fish oil softgels that leave an icky fishy aftertaste. These reasons are just some of the reasons why we developed our delicious, single-serve squeeze that offers supplement-takers a tastier and easier to swallow capsule alternative, while still delivering the benefits of omega-3.

Why so BIG?

Most popular vitamins are extremely large because they include minerals, causing them to weigh approximately 1,000 mg to 1,500 mg1. In addition, supplements are made with fillers and coatings that help contain the contents of capsules1. Unlike most fish oil, Coromega comes in an easy-to-take squeeze instead of a large oil capsule, eliminating the need for fillers and coatings.

Even though Coromega isn’t a large pill, don’t worry about not getting the same amount of nutrients as capsules. In fact, it is said that nearly 90 percent of the nutrients found in most supplements are simply passed right through the body with little nutritious absorption. Due to Coromega’s patented emulsion process, Coromega has a 300 percent better body absorption rate than encapsulated fish oil supplements2. Essentially, you are getting more bang for your buck with Coromega!

Why so Icky?

One of the largest complaints that come from taking fish oil is the fishy aftertaste and burps. Traditional fish oil can taste yucky going down, and can leave a lingering aftertaste. Coromega is shown to eliminate ‘fish burps’ by improving gastric clearance and the delicious flavors are a treat to have2. Coromega offers a range of yummy flavors to cover everyone’s taste needs including Orange, Chocolate Orange, Lemon-Lime and Tropical Orange.

This year, save the horse pills for the horses, and take something that your body will really benefit from.

Make-Over Your Skincare Routine With Omega-3s!

What’s the secret to beautiful skin? It could just be omega-3s! We might be bias, but science is on our side here with research showing that the essential fatty acids can help nourish and heal dry skin among other benefits.

Omega-3 fatty acids are crucial to skin health, says Prevention magazine, as they form an integral part of the membranes that surround skin cells, making up a key lubricating layer that keeps skin soft and supple. Dry, rough, scaly skin has met its match with these essential fats, which can ultimately help improve overall skin texture by supporting the production of healthy skin cells and the skin’s natural elasticity, restoring its healthy glow. Healthy inflammation levels can also be supported with omega-3s since the fatty acids work to combat damage caused by free radicals and sun exposure.

Your skincare routine might just need a makeover with this news, but it’s an easy fix to start working towards better skin. Try adding fish rich in omega-3s to your diet, including salmon, tuna and anchovies, or pop a delicious Coromega Omega3 Squeeze once a day! 

How do you keep your skin looking and feeling healthy? Share your tips on our Facebook wall!

Fishing For The Facts: Omega-3 Myths Busted From Dr. Bibus

Omega-3s have been shown in many studies to help support heart, brain, eye and joint health, but there are some common misconceptions out there about omega-3s. We tapped our resident expert and nationally-renowned omega-3 expert, Dr. Doug Bibus to help clear up some of the omega-3 myths we often hear.

Myth: Omega-3’s will keep your blood thin.

Fact: Long chain omega-3 fatty acids naturally compete with another omega-6 fatty acid called arachidonic acid, that is used by cells (when converted to certain compounds) to clot blood. Increasing the level of omega-3 in the diet is a good way to balance omega-6 fatty acid effects. I recommend consulting with your health care provider if you take blood thinner medication and want to start taking an omega-3 supplement.

Myth: Multiple servings of omega-3 must be taken in order to provide all of the daily omega-3’s that one needs. 

Fact: There is no daily recommended intake for long chain omega-3 in our diet by the FDA. In the U.S., expert panels recommend 650mg of EPA, DPA and DHA (all omega-3) per day.  One pack of Coromega has 650mg of omega-3.

We want to know the questions you have for Dr. Doug Bibus! Are there any myths about omega-3s you wish to clear up? Post your questions to our Facebook wall!
