Nordic Naturals cod liver oil is made from 100% wild Arctic cod.
No fish body oils or synthetic vitamins or additives are ever used.
The leading quality of Nordic Naturals Arctic Cod Liver Oil is made possible by their vertical integration, which means they have full control over every step of production—from catch to finished product. This ability to control the quality of our raw material, transport, manufacturing, and bottling allows us to deliver a finished product that surpasses the strictest international standards for purity and freshness while also maintaining a competitive price.
Nordic Naturals starts with the best raw material available: 100% pure Arctic cod (Skrei) sourced from the Norwegian Sea. They 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 them to maintain optimal raw material quality as well as sustainable fishing practices. They 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 their 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. Thanks to the short amount of time from catch to processing, as well as the processing method itself, they have been able to maintain the exceptional freshness of our fish oil.
Manufacturing and Bottling
Nordic Naturals uses 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 first catch to finished product, Nordic Naturals delivers exceptionally fresh cod liver oil.
