NEW! 100% Traceable Norwegian Omega-3 Fish Oil

I’ve long been a proponent of fish oil’s many benefits. In fact, I was one of the first to recommend supplementing with a high-quality omega-3 fatty acid formula with substantial amounts of EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). So when the American Heart Association and the World Health Organization, among others, began making similar recommendations, I wasn’t surprised—I knew they’d come around eventually. But there’s more to the story as not all omega-3 supplements are created equal.

Clean, bioavailable omega-3s make the difference

What makes my new Arctic Reserve™ Omega-3 Fish Oil unique is that it contains a bioavailable free fatty acid form of omega-3s, which can be taken on an empty stomach and is easily and efficiently absorbed by the body to help support cardiovascular health, circulation, and endothelial function. Altogether, Arctic Reserve provides…

  • A combined 800 mg daily dose of omega-3s with a 3:1 ratio of DHA to EPA
  • Free fatty acid form of omega-3s efficiently absorbed by the body
  • Support for your cardiovascular and circulatory systems
  • High-quality, 100% traceable, eco-friendly source of cod

This exclusive omega-3 formula, with 2,000 mg of cod oil, including 600 mg of DHA and 200 mg of EPA in each daily dose, is produced by Pharma Marine—a Norwegian company dedicated to the development of innovative marine lipids from sustainable and eco-friendly fisheries—in partnership with the Strand family, a respected family in the Norwegian fishing industry for three generations.

High-quality oil from reserve, limited supply

I partnered with Pharma Marine and the Strand family because of their commitment to quality and because of the great Norwegian tradition of caring for nature, resources, and people. Being socially responsible and sustainable are core elements in their activities. In fact, the name Arctic Reserve is a tribute to their careful restrictions on overfishing, which ensure a reserve supply of cod and adequate stock for future generations.

The fish caught by the Strand family’s state-of-the-art fishing vessels—from the clean Arctic waters of the Barents and Norwegian Seas—are processed fresh (never frozen) right on the ship within six hours of the catch. That means you’re getting a clean, fresh, high-quality omega-3 oil. That freshness is why you won’t experience fishy odors or burps. Plus, these cod are approved by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), whose mission is to protect the health of the world's oceans by recognizing and rewarding sustainable fishing practices. Each MSC-certified batch is traceable all the way from sea to softgel, so you see where these boats are located in real time, demonstrating their commitment to visibility and transparency in their fishing practices. Trace the source of your Arctic Reserve Omega-3 Fish Oil.

It is estimated that the average American consumes only 250 mg of EPA and DHA per day. The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends 500 mg per day of EPA and DHA combined for general health and 1,000 mg per day for those with greater heart health needs.

Abundant health benefits of omega-3s

There are thousands of studies—one of the largest bodies of science for any nutritional ingredient—supporting the numerous health benefits of omega-3s. The problem is that the average American consumes only 250 mg (estimated) of EPA and DHA per day.1 Most experts, along with the American Heart Association, recommend that people consume 500 mg per day of EPA and DHA for general health and up to 1000 mg per day for added health support.2,3

Below is just a small sampling of the many benefits of omega-3s:

Cardiovascular health

In a six-week clinical study, omega-3 (180 mg EPA and 120 mg DHA acid) supplementation helped to reduce oxidative stress markers in the body.4

Cognitive health

Higher blood levels of DHA (but not EPA, ALA or other dietary fatty acids) is associated with better cognitive health. The amount of fish consumed was about 3 servings per week, or approximately 180 mg of DHA per day. Twenty percent of the fatty acids in the brain’s cerebral cortex is the omega-3 DHA.5

Vision health

Observational studies suggest an association between high consumption of omega-3s from fish and fish oil and macular health.6 Two follow-up studies show that higher DHA intake supports eye health.7,8 And preliminary research suggests that omega-3 fatty acids like those found in fish may help with natural tear production to help keep eyes moist and hydrated.9

CRP Levels

In a recent study examining blood levels of omega-3 fatty acids and C-reactive protein (CRP)—an inflammatory marker—in 124 healthy men and women, researchers found that those with the highest levels of EPA and DHA had the lowest levels of CRP.10

Inflammatory Response and the Importance of Omega-3s

No matter the source, you need omega-3s in your diet. Essential fatty acids, which are present in every cell membrane, are necessary for many physiological functions—including playing a crucial role in your body’s inflammatory response—and are important because your body can’t produce them.

But today’s modern diet is heavily skewed towards omega-6s, so it’s important to supplement with omega-3s to achieve the proper balanced ratio. That’s why you need to include fish in your diet, because it is one of the best dietary sources of omega-3s. So, in addition to eating cold-water fish several times a week, your best bet is to take a high-quality omega-3 supplement.

Arctic Reserve Omega-3 Fish Oil is manufactured onboard the state-of-the-art, fleet of Norwegian fishing vessels, owned and operated by the Strand family. The fish are caught and processed within 6 hours so you get fresh, never-frozen, high-quality cod oil. Arctic Reserve Omega-3 Fish Oil is MSC-Certified as being 100% traceable from boat to bottle. Trace the source of your Arctic Reserve Omega-3 Fish Oil.

Cod Liver Oil vs Cod Oil: What’s the Difference?

Cod liver oil is extracted from cod livers, whereas the cod oil in Arctic Reserve comes from all of the flesh of the fish. While both are good sources of the omega-3s EPA and DHA, they provide different ratios. Cod liver oil generally contains about 9 percent EPA and 14 percent DHA, whereas Arctic Reserve contains much higher levels of DHA.

What’s more, Arctic Reserve is not known to cause gastrointestinal issues or the burping or bad breath associated with cod liver oil. That’s because of the meticulous, high-quality processes behind making each batch, which ensure freshness and potency and prevents the oxidation of the oil—the cause of the bad taste and odor typical of many standard fish oil products.

Science and Quality

Pharma Marine, the Strand Family, and the History of Cod Oil

The cod oil in Arctic Reserve comes from Pharma Marine, a Norwegian company dedicated to the development of innovative marine lipids from sustainable and eco-friendly fisheries. Pharma Marine has one of the most eco-friendly and modern facilities in the omega-3 industry.

Pharma Marine is an innovator in marine lipids and was established in 2007 by one of the most experienced teams in the marine omega-3 industry. The company uses the entire fish—not a drop goes to waste—from sustainable sources in their state-of-the-art manufacturing facility located on the west coast of Norway, near Ålesund, a region where marine oil production dates back more than 130 years.

In addition to advanced processing technologies, the facility houses an impressive research laboratory. Their equipment enables production of EPA and DHA products and their in-house refining steps make high-quality EPA and DHA concentrates for supplementation.

Pharma Marine is proud of being part of a great Norwegian tradition of caring for the nature, resources, and people. Being socially responsible and sustainable are core elements in their activities.

The Strand family fishing company

Strand Rederi (Norwegian for shipping) is one of the largest family-owned fishing boat companies in Norway. The company has a long tradition in fisheries, and was founded in 1954 by the two brothers, Ole and Olav, together with their father Nils Strand when they bought their first fishing vessel, the long-liner “Norengen.” Today, the fleet consists of multiple vessels, divided into two separate identical companies owned and operated by Ole and Olav`s daughters, Janne Grethe and Solveig.

Strong fishing tradition for centuries!

In Norway, fishing isn’t an industry, it’s a way of life. And cod and cod liver oil has a rich history in Norwegian culture. Cod fishing and the production of cod-related products has played an important role in the economic development of Norway for centuries and still today, cod is economically the most important marine fish.

No one can say for certain when the story of Norway’s fisheries started—it is a rich and hugely diversified history. Rock carvings in Northern Norway dating back to the early Stone Age show fishing of halibut from boats made of hide. Leif Erikson, the famous Viking, sailed with supplies of stockfish (also known as cod) when he discovered America and the first ship exporting fish to Brazil set sail with the fish onboard in 1692.

Cod liver oil (CLO) and salted dried cod were originally traded by the Vikings and used in Norse times and in the Middle Ages as medical preparations, for both use as liniment and oral use. In 1645, UK doctors described that CLO could heal various ailments, and by the end of the 1700s, medical doctors recommended CLO and expanded its use even more with patients. By the 1800s, the benefits of CLO became common knowledge.

Today, cod, referred to as “White Gold,” is an abundant biomass and Norway is home to more than 200 different species of fish and shellfish as well as to the largest cod stock in the world. Of all the saltwater fish along the Norwegian coastline, the cod species is the most abundant.
