Meet the Founders
Behind every Omega3 Innovations product is the medical training, commitment and passion of its happily-married co-founders, Dr. Bo Martinsen and Dr. Anne-Marie Chalmers. For a complete list of products, visit Omega3 Innovations’ store.
Bo Martinsen, MD
Born and raised in Norway, Dr. Martinsen received medical training at the University of Bordeaux in France and at the University of Oslo. Dr. Martinsen has extensive experience practicing psychiatry, general medicine, neurology and preventive medicine, in addition to training in epidemiology (Ph.D program at the University of Oslo) and business administration. He has served as the medical consultant to large international corporations focusing on stress management and synergistic medicine.
Anne-Marie Chalmers, MD
Born and raised in the United States, Dr. Chalmers graduated from Brown University and completed her medical training at the University of Oslo in Norway. In Norway, Dr. Chalmers practiced emergency, family, and preventive medicine for many years. Her research and development work has included nutraceuticals (especially omega-3s) and medical delivery device systems to facilitate the ingestion of multiple medication combinations.
Before Omega3 Innovations, Drs. Bo Martinsen and Anne-Marie Chalmers ran independent practices in Oslo, Norway. From their extensive medical backgrounds, they knew that omega-3 fatty acids could dramatically improve the health of their patients. But in spite of their recommendations, patients struggled taking the recommended omega-3 supplements. They didn’t like drinking bad-tasting oil or swallowing handfuls of capsules.
Seeking a solution to their patients’ compliance problem, the doctors began to research omega-3s. In the process, they discovered a little known fact: Truly fresh fish oil, just like fresh fish from a fine seafood restaurant, had no bad taste or smell. The only thing was, a truly fresh omega-3 supplement did not exist on the consumer market.
Moving to the United States, Drs. Bo and Anne-Marie founded Omega3 Innovations in 2006 and developed Omega Cure®, a full-spectrum omega-3 oil with exceptionally low oxidation levels. Since then, the doctors have gone further, creating the Omega Cookie® and Omega Passion® chocolates, which deliver a salmon dinner’s worth of omega-3s in the form of tasty breakfast meal replacements.
Today, Omega3 Innovations is continuing to trailblaze the omega-3 industry with its focus on freshness, potency, and ease of use.
