Nordic Naturals is aware of the fact that many people are deficient in Omega 3 fatty acids and are dedicated to bringing the safest and most effective omega 3 fatty acids to the world. Joar Opheim, the founder of Nordic Naturals, came from Norway to finish his college degree in California and found that he could not get the quality fish oils he had back home that were necessary for healing of old gymnastic injuries. He had to constantly carry bottles back from Norway as he traveled. Joar founded Nordic Naturals with the idea in mind of improving fish oil quality here in the U.S. In the meantime, he has patented several fish oil technologies that have advanced the quality, purity, freshness, taste, delivery and processing that set a new standard. As a consequence, Nordic Naturals fish oils are often chosen to run research and clinical trials in independent universities and medical centers. Currently, Nordic Naturals offers more than 150 different products that come in a wide range of flavors, concentrations and delivery forms.
