Nordic Naturals Arctic Cod Liver Oil—the fish oil that started it all
Nordic Naturals Arctic Cod Liver Oil is made from 100% wild Arctic cod. No fish body oils or synthetic vitamins or additives are ever used.
Nordic Naturals starts with the best raw material available: 100% pure Arctic cod (Skrei) sourced from the Norwegian Sea. We have built direct, exclusive relationships with smaller boats and independent fishermen, rather than larger trawling vessels that spend much longer at sea. These relationships allow us to maintain optimal raw material quality as well as sustainable fishing practices. We offer only 100% Arctic cod liver oil. No fish body oils or synthetic vitamins or additives are ever used—only pure Arctic cod (Skrei), which has the highest DHA, vitamin A, and vitamin D content of any cod species.
Since our processing facility is located right next to the harbor, transportation time is kept to an absolute minimum. This means that just a few short hours after being caught, the Arctic cod are delivered, whole, into our facility for immediate handling. These efforts greatly reduce oxidation, which begins as soon as fish are filleted. Thanks to the short amount of time from catch to processing, as well as the processing method itself, we have been able to maintain the exceptional freshness of our fish oil.
Manufacturing and Bottling?
We use nitrogen to minimize exposure to oxygen at every stage of manufacturing—beginning immediately after catch. The importance of this cannot be overstated: only by using nitrogen can the fish and oil be protected from the oxidative rancidity that leads to fishy smell and taste, as well as to free radical formation in the body. Vertically integrated from boat to bottle, Nordic Naturals delivers exceptionally fresh cod liver oil.
Sustainably Harvested Cod?
We value our relationships with independent fishermen who ensure that we get only fresh, healthy and mature Arctic cod, at a fair price. By paying cod fishermen to preserve their fish whole (rather than clean them at sea, and keep only the fillets) we ensure that 100% of the fish gets used for human or animal consumption, a benefit for the fishermen, for Nordic Naturals, our customers, and for the long term sustainability of Norwegian Arctic cod. The result is, quite possibly, the most sustainable fish oil in the world.

Surpasses International Pharmaceutical Standards Standards are set to protect consumers
Governmental fish oil quality standards do not exist in the United States. To ensure consistent quality, Nordic Naturals adheres to and exceeds the stringent European Pharmacopoeia Standard (EPS) as well as the voluntary standards set by the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) and the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3 (GOED) for all of our oils. These standards guarantee quality products by setting maximum allowances on peroxides, heavy metals, dioxins, and PCBs.
All oils used in Nordic Naturals products showed no detectable heavy metals when tested down to the GOED and CRN standard of 0.1ppm
All oils used in Nordic Naturals products show no detectable dioxins or furans when tested down to 2.0 ppt. Analysis is based on the toxicity equivalent testing methodology established by the World Health Organization (WHO).
All oils used in Nordic Naturals products show no detectable dioxin-like PCBs when tested down to 1.0 ppt. The GOED limit for dioxin-like PCBs is 3.0 ppt. Analysis is based on the toxicity equivalent testing methodology established by the World Health Organization (WHO).
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 recognized 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 maintains the freshness of fish oil used in our products, with peroxide values (indicators of freshness) well below the 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 oil used in 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 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 burp free product. Our patented encapsulation process also adds natural fruit essences into both the soft gel and liquid 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 taste of Nordic Naturals fish oils.
Exclusive and Exceptional Raw Material
Selectively sourced from sustainable seas. A great finished product starts with fresh and pure raw material: 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 our products are made exclusively from four types of fish, none of which is endangered: wild-caught Arctic cod (Skrei), sustainably harvested from Norwegian waters, wild-caught anchovies and sardines, sustainably sourced from the Southern Pacific Ocean, and wild-caught salmon (pink and sockeye) from Alaska's Cook Inlet.
Multi-Patented Manufacturing Process
Without chemicals or excessive heat. Nordic Naturals' multi-patented manufacturing processes enable us to deliver industry-leading freshness and purity levels. We use several steps in processing our oils, from water and clay filters to molecular distillation, with no chemicals or excessive heat, all while preserving the natural constituents of the oil to the highest degree possible. A patented purification process removes any potential environmental toxins (heavy metals, dioxins, PCBs, etc.), saturated fats, and other undesirable organic compounds, leaving only the beneficial components of the fish oil (omegas 3, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11, etc.). We also utilize a proprietary nitrogen (oxygen-free) environment to achieve our leading freshness levels, and to further reduce heat requirements, thereby maintaining the integrity of the oils. Moreover, we use only natural enzymes to form triglycerides for all our high-concentrate products, and all our oils are manufactured in triglyceride form in order to best preserve the oil and enhance absorption and utilization.
True Triglyceride vs. Ethyl Ester Form of Fish Oil
Ensuring optimal absorption. 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 molecular form—a synthetic fat with only 18 years of history in the human diet—all Nordic Naturals formulas are produced in true triglyceride form to ensure optimal absorption and results. New research shows that the absorption advantage of the triglyceride form is significant—up to 70% more than ethyl esters.
Driven by the latest science. Nordic Naturals is a research-driven company, where processing technology and product formulations are driven by the latest developments. Our 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, The National Institutes of Health (NIH), Stanford University, Duke University, UCLA, and the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center—with 15 published scientific studies and more than 30 currently underway.

Born in Norway
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. Nordic Naturals incorporates ethical and socially responsible practices with regards to environmental consciousness, corporate transparency, philanthropic partnerships, and education—all of which are integral to fulfilling our mission of correcting omega-3 deficiency around the world.
In line with these core values, our 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 19 published scientific studies and more than 40 currently underway. Distributing to over 20 countries on 6 continents, Nordic Naturals offers over 150 products in a variety of flavors, concentrations, and delivery forms.
