Nordic Naturals was founded by Norwegian born Joar Opheim. He felt that the US lacked the important fatty acid Omega-3 fish oil upon moving here. Since he felt that Omega-3 was essential to a good diet he began his mission.Today Nordic Naturals has the largest line of fish oil products available. Nordic Naturals also boasts an impressive list of doctors and naturopathic physicians on his team, as well as many professional athletes.

Product Features

There are several lines of Omega-3 products in Nordic Naturals as well as line of products for your pets. Since they are all part of the same tree of products, we will go with the flagship product, the Omega-3.The Omega-3 comes in 60, 120, 0r 180 soft-gels. You must take Omega-3’s each day and we have to get them from our diet because our bodies don’t produce the fatty acid on their own.

Advantages

  • You can purchase online directly from the website.
  • If you don’t want to wait, you can also purchase from many mainstream grocery or drug stores.
  • The website gives you a lot of information about Omega-3 oils, why they’re important, and the history of arctic fishing, which can be informational.
  • Disadvantages

  • The products can be a little pricey. You think you’re only spending about $17 for a 60 count bottle, but if you’re taking the recommended amounts daily, you might need to replace your bottle more frequently than you realize.
  • They aren’t very clear why there are so many different concentrations of fish oil.
  • They offer you a link to which product might be best for you, but it’s a pretty generalized list and not really interactive or detailed enough for the more discerning consumer.
  • Conclusion

    Omega-3 fatty acids are well researched and widely accepted. It’s an important part of anyone’s diet and should be consumed on a daily basis for optimal health. There is always the concern of mercury toxicity, so reputation and ethical business practices are essential for anyone who is marketing and distributing fish oil to the general public. Nordic Naturals takes pride in their filtering processes, their manufacturing processes and their distribution methods. While you do have to take their claims on faith, they do a lot to back that information up with third party studies and plenty of information to chew on.
