The Journey Begins

In 1995, Nordic Naturals’ journey began with a small offering of premium omega oils sold to medical practitioners. Since this was the only way to order Nordic Naturals products, we also offered them to a select number of discerning health food stores. In 2002, as word spread about the high quality and efficacy of its products, the company launched its retail line to answer growing demand by natural health retailers. This brought Nordic Naturals’ industry-leading fish oils to customers at health food stores, vitamin stores, and sports nutrition stores worldwide and helped the company become the recognized brand that it is today.

Large Product Portfolio 

As part of Nordic Naturals’ mission to correct the global omega-3 deficiency, the company now distributes to more than 35 countries and offers more than 200 products in a variety of flavors and formulations for adults, kids, athletes and pets across its retail and professional lines. All products are third-party tested for purity and freshness. Certificates of analysis are available upon request.

Exceptional Freshness from Boat to Bottle 

Foundational to the company’s success, and to the exceptional freshness, stability and efficacy of its products, is Nordic Naturals’ unique boat-to-bottle vertical integration. The company begins its manufacturing process with the end in mind, carefully managing every step in order to deliver the highest quality fish oil.

Green Manufacturing 

All of Nordic Naturals’ omega oils are processed at its state-of-the-art, green manufacturing plant in Tromsø, Norway, above the Arctic Circle. Plant features include:

• Largest investment in biotechnology in Arctic Norway

• Reuses waste energy to produce biodiesel and hydropower

• Provides surplus energy to neighboring businesses

• Wastewater cleaned before returning to the ocean

• Uses 20-30 percent less raw material

• cGMP (current good manufacturing practice)-certified and allergen free

Backed by Research 

To meet its longstanding commitment to deliver the world’s safest, most effective omega oils, Nordic Naturals has always been a research-driven company, with processing technology and product formulations driven by the latest developments in clinical research. Leading research institutions such as Stanford, UCLA, Indiana University, and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center have chosen Nordic Naturals for their clinical studies. To date, more than 30 original studies using Nordic Naturals products have been published, and more than 30 are in progress.

Corporate Social Responsibility 

Nordic Naturals recognizes that our presence is felt from the oceans where it sources its fish, to the communities in which the company processes and distributes its products. Nordic Naturals takes steps to proactively improve the quality of life of its employees, their families, its customers and to preserve the health of the environment and society at large.

Award-Winning Excellence 

Nordic Naturals products have won more than 40 awards for taste, product quality and brand excellence, and many of these have recognized its best-selling omega-3s like classic Arctic Cod Liver Oil™ and concentrated Ultimate Omega®. The company’s Gold Standard Arctic Cod Liver Oil has always been derived from 100 percent wild Arctic cod—no other fish oils or synthetic additives are ever used. It comes in a variety of natural fruit-flavored soft gel and liquid formulations, and with added vitamin D3 for increased nutritional support.

Potency, Absorption 

Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega family of products includes its signature omega-3 concentrate—the No. 1 omega-3 in the U.S.—Ultimate Omega, along with variations of this popular formula that offer extra-high potency, added nutrients, smaller soft gels and more. Ultimate Omega is clinically shown to support a healthy heart, and offers better bioavailability than other comparable products on the market, including salmon oil, ethyl ester concentrates and krill oil. Like all Nordic Naturals omega oils, Ultimate Omega is manufactured in the triglyceride molecular form for optimal absorption and results.

Something for Everyone 

One of Nordic Naturals’ newest products reflects its commitment to offer a wide variety of products in order to meet personalized nutritional needs. Omega Boost™ is a creamy, mango-flavored formulation. Each delicious spoonful contains 525 mg of omega-3s. It’s a great option for customers looking for one product for the entire family.

• Free and convenient staff training in a fun, interactive, online format

• Educational webinars and in-store and dinner trainings

• In-store demonstrations
