Of the 4 million annual pregnancies in the United States, 70% women don't consume the essential Omega-3 DHA. I too was part of this statistic. When I was pregnant, my doctor never mentioned anything about consuming Omega-3 DHA. Only after I added Omega-3 specialty ingredients in my company's raw material portfolio, was I introduced to the extensive science and health benefits of Omega-3s. I joined the Scientific Committee of the Global Organization of EPA and DHA (GOED) and learnt more about this 'Holy Grail of Essential Fatty Acids'. As my knowledge increased, I made it my mantra to talk about Omega-3's health benefits to family, friends and any one who cared to listen.
As my passion for Omega-3s peaked so did my frustration with prospect raw material clients. They overlooked my high quality, ultra-purified Omega-3 raw materials in favor of low priced, low grade fish oils for their products.
Then came the 'Aha' moment... What if I made my own high concentrate Omega-3 product for women? What if I took the highest potency DHA available and put it in the tiniest softgel?
Thus began Nurture Me's story...
