The randomized, clinical trial aimed to compare changes in blood levels of omega-3 fatty acids after consumption of omega-3 supplements when taken according to the manufacturers’ recommended daily dosages, and to assess potential changes in cardiovascular disease risk following supplementation. The study was an open-label, randomized, cross-over study involving 35 subjects.
Results showed Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega/ProOmega in the natural triglyceride form was 382% more effective than krill oil, 227% more effective than salmon oil, and 47% more effective than ethyl ester fish oil. Nordic Naturals was also found to be the best option in reducing cardiovascular disease risk.
“This study underscores, once again, the importance of the natural triglyceride form to product efficacy,” said Joar Opheim, CEO and founder of Nordic Naturals. “We’ve always been committed to manufacturing our products in the natural triglyceride form—and science continues to validate that this decision has always been right. Consumers have the right to see the science, and learn why natural fish oil is critical to achieving results.”
