Horizons DHA Omega-3 Benefits and Giveaway



Here I go again loving on Colorado Companies! "Horizon milk has a milk line enhanced with DHA Omega-3, an important nutrient that helps support heart, brain and eye health."




Most people who know me or read here or follow there: Twitter and Facebook know that I love Starbucks! It's been my thing since 1992 - really!! As a Mommy, Starbucks has helped to see me through the busy days of mothering twins.


It has been such peace of mind that Starbucks carries the individual Horizon Milk for the boys. Mama can have her Iced Coffee and the Tigers can drink Horizon Milk Plus DHA Omega-3 that has awesome benefits!


So what's all the talk about DHA Omega-3 ...


Renowned Pediatrician Dr. Sears calls it a Brain Food. See his Ask Dr. Sears talks about DHA as a Brain Food article where he shares:


DHA AS A BRAIN FOOD

Fats make up sixty percent of the brain and the nerves that run every system in the body. So, it stands to reason that the better the fat in the diet, the better the brain. So, with all the fat eaten by the average American, why don't we have more geniuses in this country? The average American brain is getting enough fat, but it's not getting the right kind of fat.

Most important to brain function are the two essential fatty acids, linoleic (or omega 6) and alpha linolenic (or omega 3). These are the prime structural components of brain cell membranes and are also an important part of the enzymes within cell membranes that allow the membranes to transport valuable nutrients in and out of the cells.



Our boys love the Horizons Chocolate and Vanilla Milk. You can learn more and stay in the loop and get more information on the Horizon DHA Omega-3 Facebook page.

That is so awesome you can now get some Omega-3 in a glass of milk! How cool is that? Great way to get the children Omega-3.

My kids do drink Horizon and it has been the mil I trust since I found out I was pregnant with my first child. I try my best to get them to try fish, nuts and other foods high DHA and Omegas, but their fave drink is always the easiest.

These things always confuse me. I learned in my exercise class that kids don't need milk after the age of 6. So should they keep drinking it or not? My older boys get their omega 3 from fish oil capsules and other foods. Right now my oldest is off of dairy for his asthma.

My kids do drink Horizon milk (chocolate is their favorite!!) They are picky eaters so I'm not sure how else they would get their DHA-Omega 3 so I give them supplements.

Thanks for the chance to win!

Flax seeds and chia seeds are also great sources for Omega 3. The benefit of flax seed and the benefit of chia seeds are many. Both flax seed and chia seeds contain fiber, Omega-3 and lignans. This helps lower cholesterol and can also benefit people at risk for diabetes by regulating blood sugar by slowing down the body's absorption of sugar. Flax seed and chia seeds are also both great sources for antioxidants.
