Nordic Naturals is a research driven company, initiating numerous clinical studies every year, while expanding a growing portfolio of processing patents. Nordic Naturals' responsibility is to increase the consumption of omega-3 fatty acids worldwide by educating the consumers about the array of health benefits obtained from including omega-3 in our daily diet. Nordic Naturals, Inc. manufactures all our fish oil products in Norway, where we adhere to the highest manufacturing standards guaranteeing exceptional product Purity and Freshness levels. Our quality level exceeds both the Norwegian Medicinal and European Pharmacopoeia Standards. We also adhere to the GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) facility standard, and utilize a proprietary nitrogen environment to achieve industry leading freshness levels. Nordic Naturals' products are molecularly distilled, utilizing the latest distillation technology and yielding positively zero trans fats. This process guarantees the removal of potential heavy metals (lead, mercury, etc.), PCB, and dioxins. As an example, Nordic Naturals' dioxin level is documented to be 0.4 particles per trillion which is estimated to be the lowest in the world. Low heat and ultra short residence time is used during the distillation process to ensure positively no damage to the oil. A final enzyme process is applied to ensure a completely repeat free (burp free) product. This is why children and teenagers of all ages love our products.
