We, at OVitaminPro.com, are always eager to step into a new direction when it comes to introducing and offering another brand we have become loyal to. It is with great pleasure to officially unveil a new brand we now carry, Nordic Naturals. We’re lucky to be able to work side by side with such a great company even happier to introduce to our readers this guest post by our new friends, Nordic Naturals.

Nordic Naturals ProOmega

Pro Omega by Nordic Naturals

The Promise of Health

Since our founding, Nordic Naturals® has remained solely dedicated to delivering the world’s safest and most effective omega oils. We understand that omega-3 nutrition is essential to life, and that maintaining our health and the health of our planet is important for generations to come. We pay equal attention to human and environmental well being in all our business practices, from sourcing only wild, sustainable fish species, to paying livable wages to fishermen, processers and employees. The result is industry-leading omega-3 products that help you feel your best, and that you can feel good about.

Why Omega-3 Fish Oil?

Many people have negative connotations around taking fish oil, perhaps because cod liver oil given to children in decades past was poorly maintained and quickly spoiled, as all oils will without proper refrigeration.  Rest assured, our premium omega-3 products are a world apart from these unpleasant nostrums.  It may come as a surprise to learn that the omega-3 essential fatty acids found in fish are among the most well researched nutritional compounds out there.

Countless studies have documented the various health benefits of the main marine omega-3s: EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). These fatty acids are deemed “essential” because they are necessary for health—much like certain vitamins or minerals—but cannot be produced by our bodies, and therefore must be consumed though diet or supplementation. The benefits of EPA and DHA are wide ranging, from joint and skin support, to healthy immune, nervous and cognitive function.* The most well-documented benefits of omega-3s are for heart health. The evidence there is so strong that the American Heart Association recommends that all adults eat fish at least twice a week, and that individuals with documented heart disease consume 1 gram of combined EPA and DHA daily.[1] Premium omega-3 supplements have quickly become the purest, safest and most effective source for these essential fats.*

The Nordic Naturals® Difference

Nordic Naturals offers the industry’s largest portfolio of premium omega-3 products tailored to meet specific nutritional needs. Our success in the global omega-3 industry is a result of our commitment to delivering the very best in omega nutrition each step of the way. This means products made from the purest, freshest, all-natural ingredients, total transparency of manufacturing, and reliance on sound nutritional science to help guide innovation, and development of our product lines.

Our products begin with sustainably sourced fish from healthy, well-managed stocks in Arctic Norway, the southern Pacific near Peru, and Alaska’s Cook Inlet.  All fish are sourced in line with the Norwegian fisheries management system and processed with minimal environmental impact. Our oxygen and chemical-free proprietary manufacturing techniques eliminate environmental toxins like heavy metals, PCBs, dioxins, and other harmful contaminants. Upon request, we offer Certificates of Analysis for every batch of our oils so that customers can be confident that they are getting fresh, pure and effective omega-3s.  Request your certificate of analysis and compare.

We rely heavily on the latest science to help us grow and refine our product lines.  All Nordic Naturals fish oils are manufactured in true triglyceride form, the same form in which omega-3s naturally exist in fish. Research has shown that triglyceride omega-3 products have a significant absorption advantage over their cheaper, synthetic, ethyl ester counterparts.* With a reputation for quality, our fish oils have been chosen by some of the leading research institutions in the world for studies on omega-3s and health, including UCLA, Duke, Stanford and the National Institutes of Health. They are featured in 14 published studies, with more than 30 currently underway.
