The long-awaited Accentrate® Gummy has arrived!
Since the launch of Accentrate® in 2017, parents have been asking for a gummy option for kids that struggle with swallowing pills. This gummy has been in the works for years, and we are so excited for you to try it!
Accentrate® Gummy is the only supplement providing EPA and DHA in phospholipid form in a natural blueberry flavored gummy to encourage compliance in children. Like Accentrate®, the gummy is formulated for individuals under 110 lbs. It contains all the ingredients in Accentrate® with the addition of tyrosine—the amino acid precursor to dopamine—and vitamin C, which are also necessary for proper neurotransmitter regulation. Why did we add tyrosine and vitamin C only to the gummy? We would love to be able to include these two beneficial ingredients in Accentrate®, but to keep the softgel small enough for kids to swallow, it limits the amount of nutrients we can add. Since the gummy is much larger, we had the ability to add the tyrosine and vitamin C as well for additional benefit.
Accentrate® Gummy has a natural blueberry flavor to help mask the “fishy” taste of the krill oil that provide the EPA and DHA the brain needs. While this makes it much more palatable, we would like to mention that as a natural sea product, Accentrate® Gummy is not a “candy-tasting” gummy due to the high concentration of omega-3s. If your child is sensitive to the taste, check out our tips and tricks for taking supplements.
You may have tried Accentrate® Chewable Softgel in the past, which was our previous product for children unable to swallow pills. This product came in a softened softgel coating that you bit into to get the cherry flavored nutrients. This was never intended to be a long-term solution as we always planned on formulating a gummy. We have now discontinued Accentrate® Chewable Softgel to replace it with Accentrate® Gummy, but the price will remain the same. If you have any questions or feedback about the new Accentrate® Gummy, please send us a message!
