Joar Opheim, founder of Nordic Naturals struggled to find quality fish oils, in California in the ’80s. He wanted the fish oil he was use to and would fill his suitcase with bottles of fish oil on trips home from Norway.
“As the evidence behind fish oil continues to grow and drive awareness of the crucial importance of omega-3s to good health, it’s more important than ever to understand how purity, freshness, and structure determine the overall quality of fish oil. I founded Nordic Naturals with the fundamental goal of improving fish oil quality, and today our commitment to innovation remains absolute.”

Since the beginning of Nordic Naturals has focused on sustainable and ethical practices with a commitment to using non-GMO ingredients. They test everything for the absence of GMOS through Eurofins Genescan program. Eurofins has over 20 years in GMO testing and they comply with the strict European standards while America fights for the right to know what is in their food. With the extensive testing for purity you don’t have to worry or wonder if your fish oil supplements have mercury in them since testing showed no lead or mercury when tested down to 0.01 ppm.
They’ve also created additional goodies like DHA for the kiddos, fish oil for dogs and they even have a vegan Omega version!
Since fish oils are said to help with everything from ADD to brain development to heart health do you think they’re a supplement you will add to your families vitamin regimen?
