Omega-3 are essential fatty acids, which means they are necessary for human health, but the body can't make them. They must be sourced through our diet.
Good natural sources of omega-3 include fatty fish such as mackerel, lake trout, herring, sardines and salmon, other seafoods including algae and krill, some plants, and nut oils. Most people don't consume enough of these foods to meet their needs. Supplementing our diet with fish oils rich in omega-3 is an effective way to address the imbalance.
James Slade, a keen triathlete and health case professional became frustrated at the number of low quality omega-3 supplements available on the market and set out to create a product that would provide only the very best and highest quality omega-3 supplements at a competitive price.
James launched his premium omega-3 fish oil product under the Nordic Oil brand-name in 2010 and has developed a reputation for quality among health-care professionals whom he supplies directly. He's even managed to complete his first IRONMAN UK in 2013.
Derived from carefully selected fish sources from deep and clear waters, including cold-water anchovies, herring and sardines, Nordic Oil products are triple filtered, infused with anti-oxidants to ensure maximum purity and freshness. They are also free of artificial colours and flavoring.
ELIVAR has carefully selected a small number of trusted brands that we believe can deliver long term performance and health benefits to athletes over 35. Nordic Oil is one of those trusted brands - used by us and many of our Featured Athletes to supplement our sporting performance and general well-being.
ELIVAR is delighted to recommend Nordic Oil's Omega-3 High Grade Fish Oil And Vitamin D Capsules as an effective way to supplement our diet with these two essential nutrients - Omega-3 and Vitamin D.
