- Supports the body's natural anti-inflammatory response
- Supports proper growth and function of cartilage
- May strengthen joints and bones with long term use
- Promotes joint mobility, flexibility, and comfort
Nordic Naturals developed Omega Joint based on the latest human clinical trials, which show that the combination of 1000 mg EPA+DHA from fish oil and 1500 mg of glucosamine sulfate work better together than glucosamine sulfate alone. And whereas most available glucosamine is derived from shellfish, Omega Joint delivers the same highly absorbable and heavily researched form of glucosamine sulfate, but sourced exclusively from non-GMO, organic corn. Plus, we’ve added vitamin D to further promote joint health. By combining these key joint-supporting nutrients, Omega Joint delivers targeted support for joint mobility, flexibility, and comfort.
Why Nordic Naturals
California’s Proposition 65
While the World Health Organization (WHO) has focused on PCBs that are harmful to human health, California Proposition 65 (Prop 65) simply focuses on total PCBs. The Prop 65 limit is established as <0.09 ppm or 90 nanograms per day.
Nordic Naturals’ purity surpasses all PCB standards set by Prop 65, the GOED voluntary monograph, and all international standards—as documented by third-party analysis.
Exceptional Freshness Levels
Protection from fishy smell, taste, and harmful free radicals
Freshness, which ensures product integrity and biological efficacy, may be the single most important quality of fish oils. Nordic Naturals' patented, oxygen-free manufacturing process delivers peroxide values (indicators of freshness) down to absolute 0.0 mEq/kg, with an average of 0.75 mEq/kg or approximately 14 times below the Norwegian Medicinal Standard and European Pharmacopoeia Standard limits. The lower the peroxide value, the fresher the fish oil.
Award-winning Purity Levels
Protection from harmful environmental toxins
Every batch of Nordic Naturals products is third-party tested for environmental toxins including heavy metals, dioxins, and PCBs, ensuring that every product exceeds international pharmaceutical standards and is at least 750 times purer than fish. Nordic Naturals was ranked #1 out of the top 10 fish oil brands in Norway for freshness, purity, and highest concentration.
Unsurpassed freshness equals great-tasting, repeat-free fish oil
The key objections to taking fish oils are taste and aftertaste. Nordic Naturals utilizes proprietary enzymatic and oxygen-free processing technologies to ensure a completely repeat-free product. Their patented encapsulation process also adds natural fruit essences into both the soft gel and oil for a light, fruity taste.
Years of feedback from health professionals and customers alike indicates that children, teenagers, and adults of all ages enjoy the clean, light, burp-free taste of Nordic Naturals fish oils.
Exclusive and Exceptional Raw Material
A great finished product starts with the freshest and purest raw material
Nordic Naturals starts with the best raw materials available: fish low on the food chain, which naturally contain low levels of impurities (and are also ideal for long-term sustainability, given their short reproductive cycles). All of their products are made exclusively from three fish species, none of which are endangered: wild-caught Arctic cod (Skrei), sustainably harvested from Norwegian waters, and wild-caught anchovies and sardines, sustainably harvested from the Southern Pacific Ocean.
Multi-Patented Manufacturing Process
Without chemicals or excessive heat
Nordic Naturals' multi-patented manufacturing processes enable us to deliver fish oil with industry-leading freshness and purity levels. They use several steps in processing their oils, from water and clay filters to an enzymatic molecular distillation processes, with no chemicals or excessive heat, and all while preserving the natural constituents of the oil to the highest degree possible. Their patented enzymatic process removes environmental toxins (heavy metals, dioxins, PCBs, etc.), saturated fats, and other undesirable organic compounds, leaving only the beneficial components of the fish oil (omega-3, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11, etc.). They also utilize a proprietary nitrogen (oxygen-free) environment to achieve their industry-leading freshness levels, and to further reduce heat requirements thereby maintaining the integrity of the oils. Moreover, they use only natural enzymes to form triglycerides for all their high-concentrate products, and all their products are manufactured in triglyceride form in order to best preserve the oil and enhance absorption and utilization.
Natural Triglyceride vs. Ethyl Ester Form of Fish Oil
Ensuring optimal absorption and utilization
The established health benefits of omega-3s are based on decades of data—much of which are based on natural triglyceride omega-3s. Whereas most concentrated fish oils on the market today are in the ethyl ester form—a "new to nature" fat with only 18 years of history in the human diet—all Nordic Naturals formulas are produced in the natural triglyceride form, to ensure optimal absorption and utilization, and thus results.
Driven by the latest science
Nordic Naturals is a research-driven company, where processing technology and product formulations are driven by the latest developments. Their dedication to innovation is grounded in scientific research guaranteed by active participation in peer-reviewed clinical studies recognized by leading experts worldwide. With a reputation for efficacy and potency, Nordic Naturals fish oils are regularly chosen, without solicitation, by independent research institutions and universities—such as Harvard University, Columbia University, National Institute of Health (NIH), Stanford University, Duke University, UCLA, and the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center—with 13 published scientific studies and more than 30 currently underway.
Sustainable Fishing Practices and Environmental Activism
Since their founding Nordic Naturals has actively embraced responsibility for the impact their activities have on the environment—in their oceans, their processing, their offices, their partnerships, and their communities. They’ve devoted a website to outlining the practices through which they honor this responsibility—planetnordic.com.
Optimal Blend of Natural Stabilizers
Vitamin E and rosemary extract optimize the long-term freshness of their oils
Nordic Naturals has spent over five years researching the impact of various natural stabilizers on fish oil. A recent study completed at Nutrasource Diagnostics in 2005 showed that Nordic Naturals' product freshness level (measured by peroxide value) increased only 6% over a 36-month period, compared to other products showing an increase of more than 50% over an 18-month period. This exceptional freshness ensures no fishy smell or taste, improved compliance, and results.
Nordic Naturals Mission & Profile
Nordic Naturals' mission is to deliver pure and great-tasting omega fish oils that promote optimal health and wellness. Through science, education, and community outreach, they initiate standards of excellence and integrity that apply not only to their product line but to all of their business practices worldwide. As an industry leader and innovator, Nordic Naturals strives to lead individuals to a better quality of life while maintaining a deep respect for the environment.
Nordic Naturals was born in Arctic Norway, where founder Joar Opheim grew up and where fish oil is a part of everyday life. When he came to California in the mid-1980s to complete his MBA, Joar was unable to find the quality fish oil he relied on to manage his old gymnastic injuries, and had to consistently bring bottles from Norway—filling his suitcase on trips back and forth.
Driven by his Norwegian heritage, knowledge of fish oil, and love of science, Joar was inspired to contribute to advancing fish oil quality and industry standards. Guided by his personal mission to bring high quality fish oil to the world, Joar has developed several patented fish oil technologies that include flavoring, taste, delivery, and processing—shaping standards for a country and industry that had few guidelines in place.
Values-Driven & Research-Based Innovation
Bringing forward a new definition of fish oil quality as it relates to purity, freshness, taste, dosage, and sustainability, Nordic Naturals' leadership has also shifted the model of how to conduct business truthfully and authentically.

In line with these core values, Nordic Naturals dedication to innovation is grounded in scientific research guaranteed by active participation in peer-reviewed clinical studies recognized by leading experts worldwide. With a reputation for efficacy and potency, Nordic Naturals fish oils are regularly chosen, without solicitation, by independent research institutions and universities—such as Harvard University, Columbia University, National Institute of Health (NIH), Stanford University, Duke University, UCLA, and the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center—with 13 published scientific studies and more than 30 currently underway.
