What You Should Know
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.
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.

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.
