Our work with omega-3 fish oil began in the 1990s. Back then, Bo and I owned independent family medicine practices in Norway.
For many years, we had maintained our separate medical interests. Bo had spent years in the business sector, leading corporate wellness programs; I had an integrative practice incorporating acupuncture along with traditional Western medicine.
Practicing Family Medicine in Norway
As our children were going through school, Bo and I became increasingly interested in nutrition — particularly omega-3 fatty acids. We understood that this family of molecules was crucial for good health, but that few people were getting enough, thanks to the glut of processed foods in the standard Western diet.
While we tried to help our patients understand the value of omega-3s, we recognized the many compliance problems standing in their way. Fishy oil, hard-to-swallow capsules and low doses made taking omega-3 supplements unpleasant and ineffective. We decided to create a better solution.
Creating the World’s Freshest Fish Oil
We started working closely with a group of top manufacturers, researchers and fishermen in Norway. The goal: To create a fresh omega-3 oil with no fishy taste or smell, delivering a standardized EPA/DHA dose and the range of omega-3s and nutrient co-factors you find in fish.
It has taken over a decade of tireless work, research, experimentation, and investing in new technology to get where we are today. The result is Omega Cure — a full-spectrum cod liver oil with the lowest oxidation values in the omega-3 industry.
Developing New Methods of Supplementation
Along the way, we’ve also been busy pushing the bounds of what an omega-3 supplement can be. We’ve created a patented process for getting clinical doses of fish oil into high-fiber, low-sugar breakfast cookies and chocolate truffles. And because we believe that good health is determined by more than one thing, we’ve also created omega-3 combinations that include vitamin D and melatonin.
All our innovation, however, stems from Omega Cure. There is no other omega-3 oil like it on the market, and we are excited to share its potent benefits with you.
