Fish oil has become a supplement of choice for many health-conscious individuals due to its numerous health benefits. Many of the benefits of fish oil have been attributed to the omega-3 fatty acids that it contains: eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). 

Nordic Naturals’ ProOmega Lemon contains the following ingredients:

  • 1280 mg of omega-3 fatty acids‚ purified from anchovies and sardines.
  • Added lemon flavor‚ which eliminates any fishy smell or aftertaste.

Consumption of high levels of omega-3 fatty acids has been associated with cardiovascular health; one study found that intake may increase arterial elasticity by 36 percent.

Omega-3 fatty acids contain signaling molecules called eicosanoids‚ which affect the production of most of your body’s hormones; as a result‚ their effect can be widespread. Eicosanoids discourage platelets from aggregating in your blood‚ which can reduce your risk of blood clots. They also can inhibit cell turnover. Eicosanoids can improve immune system function‚ and have anti-inflammatory benefits that may help sufferers of arthritis.

The American Heart Association recommends 2-4 grams EPA and DHA per day for people with elevated triglycerides. 

These lemon-flavored ProOmega soft gels by Nordic Naturals provide high concentrations of EPA/DHA essential fatty acids. EPA and DHA are the two main components of Omega-3 found in fish oil. They are essential for growth and development throughout the human life cycle‚ from infanthood through the senior years.

ProOmega 1‚000 mg by Nordic Naturals contains 70 percent pure omega-3 which has been purified through molecular distillation to ensure that each capsule is free of heavy metals‚ such as mercury‚ and PCBs. The lemon flavor provides a pleasant alternative to the “fishy” taste of some omega-3 supplements.

What are DHA and EPA?

DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) are types of omega-3 fatty acids that are found in fish oil. DHA is an important component of the body’s cell membranes‚ particularly those found in the brain‚ retina and nervous system. Research has shown that supplementing with DHA fatty acids can help support brain‚ eye and nervous system health. EPA has been shown to be a very powerful anti-inflammatory agent. It also produces certain kinds of prostaglandins that can reduce platelet stickiness and the risk of blood clot formation.

Most importantly‚ fish oil may alleviate inflammation‚ therby reducing joint pain and stiffness. This allows you to stay active and healthy. In order to maintain good health‚ experts recommend that we get a balanced ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids‚ but unfortunately‚ the standard American diet is much‚ much heavier on omega-6 fatty acids‚ which can promote inflammation. It is for this reason that most Americans would benefit from taking a supplement such as ProOmega. If your diet is rich in meat‚ grains and starches‚ you are likely experiencing a fatty acid imbalance. Adding ProOmega to your daily routine can help rebalance your fatty acid ratio and help restore your health.

All omega-3 oils have some antithrombotic activity‚ meaning that it reduces the ability of your blood to form clots. This is usually a good thing‚ but if you’re already taking blood thinners‚ you should talk to your doctor before you begin supplementing with omega-3 oils. Each bottle of Nordic Naturals’ ProOmega Lemon 1‚000 mg contains 180 softgel capsules.

Nordic Naturals strives to provide high-quality fish oils sourced from Norwegian Arctic waters‚ along with other supplements essential to life. All Nordic Naturals products surpass international pharmaceutical standards and are pure‚ fresh‚ and tasty. Research-based innovation is a priority for Nordic Naturals‚ and its efficient and potent products are often used in major clinical studies.

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.
