The Dutch Brand’s Clean Approach to Sourcing Its Ingredients Means Its Norwegian Fish Oil Is Packed With a Broad Fatty Acid Profile
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Oct. 31, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Omega-3 fatty acids are a major part of a healthy diet. They can help manage triglycerides, cholesterol, heart disease, high blood pressure, and rheumatoid arthritis. However, Omega-3s aren’t alone in the fish oil spectrum. On the contrary, they’re just one category in a broad fatty acid profile that is often referred to as “full-spectrum fish oil” and is a unique attribute of Norwegian wild cod, in particular.
There are more than 30 different fatty acids within the non-concentrated full-spectrum fish oil produced from wild-caught Norwegian cod. More than 75% of these are either monounsaturated or polyunsaturated fats. Along with the primary Omega-3 fats DHA and EPA, the oil contains five other types of Omega-3 fats. It also contains other healthy fats, such as Omega-7, Omega-9, and Omega-11.
“Scientists are working on revealing what these other fats, besides Omega-3 fats, do in our body,” says Arctic Blue founder and owner Ludo van de Wiel. “While we don’t know the exact ways many of them can influence our health, we know that this form of fish oil is a true powerhouse of nutrients pulled straight from the Arctic Barents Sea.”
While the oils in the fish themselves are important, the challenge comes from extracting them for human supplementation. This is where Arctic Blue shines. The health and wellness brand’s careful manufacturing process — some of which takes place right on the fishing ships shortly after catching the fish — ensures that the brand’s cod oil retains this exact fatty-acid profile right into each bottle or capsule, allowing its customers to tap into this unique health benefit at its full spectrum potential.
