Nordic Naturals: Boat to Bottle

nordic-naturalsEver wonder about fish oil? Where exactly does it originate and how is it processed? Come along on an Omega-3 adventure with Nordic Naturals, one of the Co-op’s best-selling and highest-quality fish oil and multivitamin suppliers. They just released a breathtakingly beautiful new video titled True North: The Omega-3 Journey from Boat to Bottle. This short documentary chronicles the passion of Nordic Naturals in sourcing the world’s safest, most effective omega oils, from catch, to manufacturing, bottling, and shipping. These folks are serious! Go behind the scenes and learn all about the company’s origins in Arctic Norway to their U.S. headquarters in central California.

Company founder Joar Opheim grew up in Norway–where consuming fish oil is a part of everyday life. Back in the mid 1980s, he moved to California to complete his MBA and was unable to find excellent quality fish oil to manage his old sports injuries. He founded Nordic Naturals and began to pioneer sustainably harvested, optimally processed, premium fish oil to improve global health. The company has also received certification from the Marine Stewardship Council, an international non-profit organization dedicated to supporting a sustainable fish market and ending illegal and unregulated fishing practices.

Week One of Elimination Diet

I wish that I could say that this has been a difficult week in the eating world, mostly because it makes better copy, but in truth it has been fairly simple.  I think that the reason is that I feel so much better already.  On the food front, I have eliminated wheat and sugar, but was rewarded with an abundance of greens, fish and lean meats. I will admit to trying a spoonful of the Co-op’s new Rock’n Road Ice Cream…worth it!!!

I need to be SUPER careful with raw vegetables so I have been blanching them and eating them al dente.  This is not raw, but also not mushy.  Using coconut oil as a method of cooking up my fish has been delightful and light.

I want to share a few of the questions I have received.

“Am I taking enzymes to aid in my digestion?” Read more Week One of Elimination Diet …
