Nordic Naturals ProDHA™ 1000 is an omega-rich formula that offers increased DHA potency in fewer soft gels. With the same great formula as ProDHA™‚ ProDHA 1000 provides maximum benefits in 1000 mg soft gels. With 100% natural strawberry essence for a great fruity taste‚ ProDHA 1000 offers 960 mg of DHA per serving‚ maximizing your dosage‚ and thus benefits. 

Your body can greatly benefit from omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. These substances come from the healthy fats in your diet‚ but can also be taken as a dietary supplement. DHA and EPA are popular types of omega-3 fatty acids‚ while GLA is a common type of omega-6 fatty acid. They’re great for your brain function‚ and they can also help relieve pain by reducing inflammation.

It’s not always easy to keep your levels of essential fatty acids high enough. Since your body can’t produce them naturally‚ it relies on your intake. That means eating healthy foods—like albacore tuna‚ salmon‚ walnuts‚ flaxseed‚ pumpkin seeds‚ and canola oil—that contain omega-3 fatty acids. You can get omega-6 fatty acids from oils such as palm oil‚ sunflower oil‚ and soybean oil. If you usually don’t eat these foods‚ you can make up for it by taking a supplement.

Nordic Naturals’ ProEFA® has plenty of DHA‚ EPA‚ and GLA to allow your brain and body to function at their best. Its formula is designed to help lift your mood and make your joints feel less achy‚ all with a pleasant lemon taste. 

General Nutritional Support

Essential fatty acids, a part of the PUFA family (polyunsaturated fatty acid), are known as the "essential fats". Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids are vital to health and can not be reproduced by the human body - they must be obtained from diet. 

The Omega-3 long chain fatty acids, EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), are found almost uniquely in foods of marine origin. It is the long chain omega-3?s that the body needs to synthesize and ensure proper body function. Clinical studies in the past 30 years have regarded Omega-3 fatty acids as protective, therapeutic and essential for growth and development throughout the human lifecycle. 

Borage oil, an Omega-6 fatty acid derived from the plant, Borage officnalis, is the most concentrated source of GLA (gamma-linolenic acid). GLA is beneficial for skin moisture and has been popularly used by woman suffering from pre-menstrual syndrome. 

Omega-3 fatty acids and GLA from Borage Oil as a combined formula may have a calming effect by increasing the amount of the body?s beneficial anti-inflammatory prostaglandins of the series 1 and 3. Omega-3 fatty acids and GLA together provide optimal nutritional support and are "essential" throughout all stages of life. 

Pro EFA is an Omega-3 (from fish oil) and Omega-6 (from Borage oil) combination. Each 1000 mg soft gel capsule provides EPA, DHA, and GLA, which are important for proper cell signaling and membrane flexibility. The New ProEFA formulation has been enhanced with advanced lipid stabilizing antioxidants, added vitamin E and has natural lemon oil added.

Since our founding, Nordic Naturals has always been committed to sourcing only fish species that are flourishing and only from waters that are not threatened by overfishing. Nordic Naturals cod liver oil products are made from 100% wild Arctic cod (Skrei) that are sustainably sourced from the Norwegian Sea. All other Nordic Naturals products are made from wild, sustainably sourced sardines and anchovies from the South Pacific Ocean off the coast of Peru.

Molecular distillation removes impurities (heavy metals, dioxins, etc.), saturated fats, and other undesirable organic compounds. Molecular distillation is gentle with exceptionally low heat residence time and is performed in a vacuum to further reduce heat requirement. All time and temperature specifications are proprietary, but we can assure you that no trans fats are created during any of our distillation processes. Any potential impurities and saturated fats are distilled out of the oil, leaving only the key beneficial components of the fish oil. Flash distillation accomplishes the same thing as molecular distillation, but utilizes steam rather than a vacuum. The process used depends on the intended concentration of the fish oil. Molecular distillation is used for all of our fish oil products. Flash distillation is used for our non-concentrated fish oils. Independent lab results consistently show that these processing techniques deliver oils of exceptional quality and freshness. Certificates of Analysis are available upon request.

Nordic Natural's only focus is to ensure delivery of ultra pure, fresh and health promoting omega essential fatty oils that have a taste great, and are free from any environmental toxins. All Nordic Natural's products are manufactured in Norway where they adhere to the highest manufacturing standards that guarantee exceptional purity and freshness of all theri supplements. 

Nordic Naturals only uses wild fish like arctic cod, mackerel, sardines, and anchovies. They are low on the food chain which minimizes the potential of impurities. They are also and naturally high in Omega 3 EFAs essentail fatty acids. They have developed and patented natural fruit flavored capsules in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, in particular, small chewable strawberry capsules ideal for children, and even liquids.

They make exceptionally high quality fish oils in their natural triglyceride form to maximize absorption and results. Their goal is to keep the oil's natural constituents to the greatest degree possible. In addition to EPA and DHA, Nordic Natural's formulas also include Docosapentaenoic Acid (DPA, C22:5n-3), Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA, 18:3n-3), as well as some monounsaturated and saturated fats found naturally in the oil.

The most common fish oils are the "18/12" oils, which are 18% EPA and 12% DHA. This formula is ideal for maintaining healthy levels of the key nutrients EPA and DHA. Since it is already in its natural form, an 18/12 oil does not need to be molecularly distilled, unless its source is impure. Flash distillation, a gentle and leading-edge oil processing technique, cleanses the oil while leaving the molecules untouched.

For higher concentrations, molecular distillation is used to increase the levels of the two key fatty acids EPA and DHA. High concentrates can be in their natural triglyeride form or in an ethylester form. Nordic Naturals uses only the triglyceride form of fatty acids since they offer higher stability and bioavailability. Concentrates lend themselves well for specific therapeutic dosing.

In the example of pregnant and lactating women, a concentrated DHA supplement can easily meet a woman's need for brain and nervous system support, without the vasodilation effect of EPA. Higher EPA formulations target heart health and immune system support. Concentrations of both EPA and DHA are ideal for protocols that may require high dosages of Omega-3 in a balanced form.

EFA Essential Fatty Acid Benefits:
EPA - Healthy heart and immune support

EPA builds prostaglandin PGE-3, which is anti-inflammatory and promotes vasodilation.

DHA- Healthy mind, nervous system and visual acuity

DHA is needed for pregnant or lactating women, children's developing brain and nervous systems, periods of high mental stress and any signs of forgetfulness.
Both EPA and DHA maintain membrane flexibility, which supports the cellular intake of nutrients, and the elimination of toxins. EPA and DHA contribute to structural parts of the cells and facilitate electrical channels on the membrane (neural transmission).

GLA - Healthy skin, hair and hormones

Evening Primrose Oil and Borage Oil supply different ratios of GLA (Omega-6) and are rich in Omega-9, otherwise known as Oleic Acid.
GLA nourishes the skin and promotes prostaglandin PGE-1, which is also anti-inflammatory.
Many doctors prefer to supply GLA with a fish oil to maximize the health promoting enzymatic pathways and prevent serum buildup of pro-inflammatory Arachidonic Acid.

Nordic Naturals History

Nordic Naturals originated in Arctic Norway. This is where their founder, Joar Opheim was raised. Where he grew up fish oil is a part of everyday life. Then in the 1980's when he left there he came to California to study. Joar couldn't find the quality of fish oil anywhere that he was used to. He was inspired by his personal experience to start developing many patented fish oil technologies. He evaluated flavor and taste, as well as how it was delivered and processed.

So it was that Nordic Naturals was born. It was based on all the things that Joar had learned. They use ethical and socially responsible practices. They are environmentally conscious. They are proud of their focus on their philanthropic partnerships, corporate transparency, and how they stress education.

They are actively involved in peer-reviewed clinical studies that are recognized by many leading experts all over the world. Nordic Naturals has more than 150 products that have many different flavors and a variety of concentrations. They are consistently selected by independent research institutions and universities like NIH, National Institutes of Health, Harvard University, Columbia University, Stanford University, Duke University, UCLA, and Cedar-Sinai Medical Center. They have 25 studies published, including 15 clinical research studies, and over 30 in progress. They sell their line of essential fatty acids supplements in over 30 different countries all over the world.
