Skin Supplements

Essential Fatty Acids are nutritional cornerstones of human health. Two major families of fats are comprised under this designation, omegas 3 and 6. They are deemed 'essential' because we need them for proper health—much like certain vitamins and minerals—but cannot produce them on our own. We must therefore consume these fats through diet or supplementation.

Sustainable Fishing Practices

Nordic Naturals ensures that all fish caught are done so through sustainable fishing practices.  This includes the Arctic Cod (Skrei) sourced in Arctic Norway, sardines and anchovies from the South Pacific Ocean, and Wild Alaskan Salmon.  For South Pacific sourcing, Nordic Naturals has built a relationship with an independent company that follows strict quotas identical to Norway’s comprehensive and stringent monitoring system.  Every catch is monitored by authorities, and Nordic Naturals receive spec sheets of the catch prior to processing to verify adhearance to quality specifications.

Most people associate omega-3s with cardiovascular health, but their benefits go far beyond the heart. The two main omega-3s eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) promote the body's natural anti-inflammatory response, a normal function that is behind the relief of many chronic conditions but that is too often inhibited by poor nutrition.  Extensive research has documented the health benefits of EPA and DHA which include not only a healthy heart, but brain and cognitive function, healthy skin and hair, joint mobility, eye health, pregnancy and lactation, and a normally functioning immune response.

Omega–3s for Hair, Skin & Nails

 

Skin is the largest organ in the human body and is often the first visual indicator of an essential fatty acid deficiency. EPA and DHA, the omega–3 essential fatty acids in fish oil and flax seed oil, along with GLA, the essential fatty acid found in safflower seed oil, borage and evening primrose oils, are crucial nutrients for skin health and function. These essential fatty acids (EFAs) reside in the membranes that surround skin cells, where they regulate a large number of cellular processes that directly impact skin health.
 

The research-backed benefits of fish oil + GLA include:
• Nourishes skin, hair, and nails
• Protects against age–related damage
• Supports the body's natural anti-inflammatory response
Hydrates skin by retaining natural moisture
• Protects against free radicals
• Stimulates production of healthy skin cells
• Supports a clear and healthy complexion
• Is natural and safe for long-term use

 

Multivitamin supplement drink for the whole body.

Having the correct balance of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and amino acids is important for absorption of essential fatty acids (EFA's,) and for the normal day-to-day function of organs and tissues of the body. 

  • Oxygenates.  The naturally occurring enzymes 'Superoxide Dismutase' (SOD,) and catalase work together to convert hydrogen peroxide into beneficial oxygen and water, helping all cells to release energy.
  • Hydrates.  Important electrolytes control the balance of fluid, important for the movement of nutrients into the cells and removal of waste product from the cells.
  • Circulates.  The amino acid L-Arginine promotes healthy blood flow, which significantly improves circulation.
  • Rejuvenates.  A full range of B vitamins support adrenal health and immune and nervous systems.  High-potency antioxidants: vitamin C, selenium, and bioflavonoids support your skin and body with the fight against free radicals.  Natural vitamin D3 supports bone and heart health.
  • No sugar, zero calories and GMO free.
