NORSAN Omega-3 Total (200 ml) consist of a natural (no added concentrates) omega-3 rich fish oil and a biological cold-pressed olive oil as an antioxidant. The daily dose consists of 2,000 mg omega-3 fatty acids. The preferred liquid form and the pleasant taste allow the oil easy to be used in daily food plan, for example as dressing for salad or as ingredient in the smoothie. Most consumes, however, take the oil “pure” before or together with the breakfast; “one spoon fish oil a day, keeps the doctor away”. The fish oil comes from sustainable fishing and is cleaned of pollutants and PCBs.
NORSAN Omega fish oil is FOS certified and is derived from fish originating from waters that are certified sustainable by FOS. The FOS certification ensures NORSAN’s efforts to protect the ocean’s limited natural resources is verified by an independent third party. Friend of the Sea is an internationally recognized non-profit organization that has set itself the task to preserve the global marine habitat. FOS operates leading certification projects which analyse the sustainability of fisheries and omega-3 fish oil products.
The NORSAN fish oil is processed and produced in Norway and cleaned of pollutants and PCBs and inspected according to strict Norwegian regulations.
The raw materials come from a modern fishing fleet. The fish is cooled directly on the boat and the boats run to the port every day to keep their catch fresh. Typical there are only 4 hours between the catch and the transfer to the production.
Natural fish oil consists of a fatty acid complex of over 50 fatty acids. The natural fatty acid structure of the fish is preserved during the recovery and purification of the NORSAN Omega-3 Total oil. The effect of taking such a non-concentrated natural fish oil is similar to the effect of fish consumption.
Omega-3 Total oil contains 2,000 mg of omega-3 fatty acids per daily dose (8ml corresponds to 1 tablespoon).This is the recommended dose to achieve a balanced omega-6/3 ratio. The recommendation is based on results from numerous fatty acid analyses and scientific studies that show that at least 2,000 mg of omega-3 fatty acids are necessary for an anti-inflammatory effect. More than 3,000 blood measurements have confirmed that normally more than 2,000 mg Omega -3 fatty acids per day are needed to regulate an omega-3 deficit. The primary source of these studies is Dr. med. Jochen Henn who has completed numerous research papers in the field of measuring, analysing and regulating fatty acids.
The quality of the fish oil is – as with all other nutrition – also reflected by the smell and taste. Trust your nose! NORSAN Omega-3 Total oil is carefully processed without contact with oxygen, therefore the oxidation values remain low (is the reverse parameter for “freshness”). The result is particularly fresh, well tolerated and good smelling oil. The oil is offered in liquid form. This allows you to directly perceive the quality of the oil when it is taken.
The extra virgin olive oil used in our product is selected based on its high levels of antioxidants and natural flavour. The olives are grown on a small farm operating under strict ecological guidelines. NORSAN team members often visit the farmer Rafael at his orchard, to ensure the highest level of quality is maintained and conformance to recommended guidelines. The olives are hand harvested in order to preserve their natural flavour.
Although it is not well known, the molecular double bond forming the vital chain among the fatty acid is extremely fragile, and represents a weak point in the chemical structure of the fatty acid series. By blending the fish oil with extra virgin olive oil, the delicate polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids are protected both prior and post consumption.
