Why we sell Nordic Naturals 0 Comments
Governmental fish oil quality standards do not exist in the United States. To ensure consistent quality, Nordic Naturals adheres to and exceeds the stringent European Pharmacopoeia Standard (EPS) as well as the voluntary standards set by the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) and the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega–3 (GOED) for all of our oils. These standards guarantee quality products by setting maximum allowances on peroxides, heavy metals, dioxins, and PCBs.
Heavy Metals: All oils used in Nordic Naturals products showed no detectable heavy metals when tested down to the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega–3 (GOED) and Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) standard of 0.1ppm
Dioxins: All oils used in Nordic Naturals products show no detectable dioxins or furans when tested down to 2.0 ppt. Analysis is based on the toxicity equivalent testing methodology established by the World Health Organization (WHO).
PCBs: All oils used in Nordic Naturals products show no detectable dioxin–like PCBs when tested down to 1.0 ppt. The Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega–3 (GOED) limit for dioxin–like PCBs is 3.0 ppt. Analysis is based on the toxicity equivalent testing methodology established by the World Health Organization (WHO).
California's Proposition 65: The Prop 65 limit is established as <0.09 ppm or 90 nanograms per day. Nordic Naturals' purity surpasses all PCB standards set by Prop 65, the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3 (GOED) voluntary monograph, and recognized international standards—as documented by third-party analysis.
Every batch of oil used in Nordic Naturals' products is third-party tested, ensuring that every product exceeds international quality standards and is at least 750 times purer than fish. Freshness, which ensures product integrity and biological efficacy, may be the single most important quality of fish oils.
Nordic Naturals' manufacturing processes delivers industry–leading freshness and purity levels. Using several steps in processing the oils, from water and clay filters to molecular distillation, with no chemicals or excessive heat, all while preserving the natural constituents of the oil to the highest degree possible. A proprietary nitrogen (oxygen–free) environment to achieve leading freshness levels, and to further reduce heat requirements, thereby maintaining the integrity of the oils. Moreover, only natural enzymes are used to form triglycerides for all of the high–concentrate products, and all of the oils are manufactured in triglyceride form in order to best preserve the oil and enhance absorption and utilization.
The established health benefits of omega–3s are based on decades of data—much of which are based on natural triglyceride omega-3s. Whereas most concentrated fish oils on the market today are in the ethyl ester molecular form—a synthetic fat with only about 30 years of history in the human diet—all Nordic Naturals formulas are produced in true triglyceride form to ensure optimal absorption and results. New research shows that the absorption advantage of the triglyceride form is significant—up to 70% more than ethyl esters.
Nordic Naturals is a research–driven company, where processing technology and product formulations are driven by the latest scientific developments. Dedication to innovation is grounded in scientific research guaranteed by active participation in peer–reviewed clinical studies recognized by leading experts worldwide. With a reputation for efficacy and potency, independent research institutions and universities regularly choose Nordic Naturals fish oils.
