Fish oil liquid with vitamin D
Nordic Naturals has created an omega-3 fish oil concentrate that also adds vitamin D to address the frequent vitamin D deficiencies found in the population. Each teaspoon of ProOmega-D Liquid provides 3,000mg of EPA and DHA, easily fulfilling the dailyrecommendation by ISSFAL of 600mg per day. The American Heart Association recommends 2,000-4,000mg of combined EPA and DHA for documented coronary issues. Each serving also provides 400IU of vitamin D3, which is 100 per cent of the recommended daily value of vitamin D for adults and children more than 4 years of age. The product is based on 100 per cent natural cholecalciferol sourced from sheeps' wool. Due to its natural form, cholecalciferol is easily absorbed and utilized by the human body, the company says.

Infant formulas to help balance microflora
Nestlé Nutrition's Good Start Natural Cultures is designed to help infants fed routine infant formula achieve higher levels of beneficial bacteria, improve the balance of microflora in their gastrointestinal tract and attain a healthy immune system. The product contains Bifidobacterium lactis. Supplementation with specific strains of dietary bifidobacteria in infants has been shown to help balance the flora in the GI tract, acidify the intestinal lumen (creating an environment unfavourable to less-beneficial species), support gut-barrier function and modulate immune-system response, the company says. As with Nestlé's other Good Start milk-based formulas, Natural Cultures is made with easy-to-digest 100 per cent whey protein, partially hydrolyzed through a patented process, and it contains DHA and ARA for brain and eye development. Each 4oz serving contains 107 colony-forming units of viable B. lactis. It is sold in powder form in 12oz and 24oz sizes.
