Nordic Naturals, Inc. was founded by Norwegian born, Joar Opheim, BS, MBA, who recognized the lack of fish oils in the United States when he first arrived here 20 years ago. "Having been born and raised in Arctic Norway where the fishing industry is a crucial part of both the commerce and academia, I was aware of the importance of pure Omega-3 in the diet."
He started with the fundamental goal of advancing the overall quality of fish oils, by developing new technologies for improving taste, purity, and the molecular structure of the oils. Today, Nordic Naturals offers the largest line of fish oil products available, with up to 95% concentration, all in natural triglyceride form. Nordic Naturals' award winning omega oils are available in patented natural fruit flavored capsules in a variety of shapes and sizes, as well as great tasting liquids to suit even the most discriminating palate.
Nordic Naturals is a research driven company, initiating numerous clinical studies every year, while expanding a growing portfolio of processing patents. Nordic Naturals' responsibility is to increase the consumption of omega-3 fatty acids worldwide by educating the consumers about the array of health benefits obtained from including omega-3 in our daily diet.
Nordic Naturals, Inc. manufactures all our fish oil products in Norway, where we adhere to the highest manufacturing standards guaranteeing exceptional product Purity and Freshness levels. Our quality level exceeds both the Norwegian Medicinal and European Pharmacopoeia Standards. We also adhere to the GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) facility standard, and utilize a proprietary nitrogen environment to achieve industry leading freshness levels.
Nordic Naturals' products are molecularly distilled, utilizing the latest distillation technology and yielding positively zero trans fats. This process guarantees the removal of potential heavy metals (lead, mercury, etc.), PCB, and dioxins. As an example, Nordic Naturals' dioxin level is documented to be 0.4 particles per trillion which is estimated to be the lowest in the world. Low heat and ultra short residence time is used during the distillation process to ensure positively no damage to the oil. A final enzyme process is applied to ensure a completely repeat free (burp free) product. This is why children and teenagers of all ages love our products.
Nordic Naturals, Inc. uses only wild fish (arctic cod, sardines, and anchovies), that are low on the food chain (to minimize potential impurities) and are naturally high in Omega-3 EFAs.
Nordic Naturals' harvest and the environment
All by-product of Nordic Naturals' fish oil is used for animal or human consumption. Consequently, no raw material contains antibiotics or other impurities found in some fish feed, as all raw material is caught in the wild.
Nordic Naturals, Inc. is a research driven company, where an array of leading research institutions are using our products to identify the effect of EFAs on various medical conditions. Our products are preferred due to exceptional freshness and purity levels, and great taste.
