Supports DHA Maintenance During Pregnancy and Lactation
Nordic Naturals is the official omega-3 of the American Pregnancy Association
Size – 90 caps
Expires August 28, 2012
Promotes healthy development of the brain, eyes, and nervous and immune systems*
Provides 450 mg of DHA, surpassing the minimum recommendations (300 mg) of daily DHA intake
A woman’s demand for the omega-3 DHA increases during pregnancy and lactation, as the fetus uses omega-3s for its nervous system development. Omega-3s are also used to make breast milk, and provide important mood and nerve support for mothers.* Third-party tested for purity, Nordic Naturals Prenatal DHA is a safe and effective way to ensure that both mother and baby receive the daily recommended intake of this fundamental nutrient without any risk of toxicity. And in response to concerns in medical and scientific literature about the prevalence of vitamin D3 deficiency in the United States, and to recommendations that higher intakes of vitamin D3 are necessary, we’ve also added 400 I.U. vitamin D3 to each serving. The unflavored soft gels are perfect for even the most sensitive palate, and are half the size of standard soft gels, making them easier to swallow.

Brain Development and DHA:
The human brain grows at an incredible rate during the first few years of life. During this period, 75% of brain growth is completed. In the first year alone, the brain more than doubles its size.
During this period of rapid growth, the brain is especially sensitive to nutrition, particularly the omega-3 DHA. DHA is the primary building block of brain tissue. Adequate intake of DHA is essential for proper brain development, and remains necessary throughout life to maintain brain health.*
Nordic Naturals Prenatal DHA is a high concentrate DHA supplement for mood support, proper memory and neurological function, and proper infant development. Encapsulated in small, easy-to-swallow soft gels, Nordic Naturals Prenatal DHA is a healthy way to ensure adequate intake of the essential brain nutrient, DHA.

General Nutrient Support
DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) is a polyunsaturated fatty acid, and is an essential building block of brain and nerve tissue. DHA cannot be synthesized by the body, and therefore must be obtained by a diet high is deep-sea cold water fish.
DHA, which constitutes approximately 40% of the brain, supports brain development during the last trimester of pregnancy when the unborn child’s demand for neurological growth increases greatly. If added to the mother’s diet, it can help prevent the depletion of the mother’s store of DHA and support the developing baby’s essential fatty acid needs. Currently, the proposed Adequate Intake of DHA for pregnant and lactating women is 300 mg per day. (ISSFAL)*
Clinical investigations are continually carried out on the importance of DHA and omega-3 fatty acids in health and disease.

Why Nordic Naturals
Why are so many Medical Professionals and Research Institutions choosing Nordic Naturals Fish Oil and Fish Oil Blends?
Exceptional Freshness Levels
Freshness, which ensures product integrity and biological efficacy, may be the single most important quality of fish oils. Nordic Naturals’ patented, oxygen-free manufacturing process delivers peroxide values (indicators of freshness) down to absolute 0.0 mEq/kg, with an average of 0.75 mEq/kg or approximately 14 times below the Norwegian Medicinal Standard and European Pharmacopoeia Standard limits. The lower the peroxide value, the fresher the fish oil.
Exceptional Purity Levels
Purity is a significant concern among fish oil consumers
Nordic Naturals’ raw material is harvested from some of the cleanest waters in the world, and is tested by independent laboratories for heavy metals and over 210 other environmental contaminants.
The key objections to taking fish oils are taste and aftertaste. Nordic Naturals utilizes a proprietary enzymatic process to ensure a completely repeat-free product. Our patented manufacturing process adds natural fruit essences into both the capsule and oil for a light, fruity taste.
Backed by Extensive Research
Formulations are driven by the latest developments
Nordic Naturals is a research driven company, where processing technology and product formulations are driven by the latest developments. Without solicitation, leading research institutions such as Harvard University, Georgetown University, Columbia University, and the National Institute of Health have chosen the Nordic Naturals brand for clinical studies. Nordic Naturals products are currently used in fourteen clinical studies at various research facilities and universities around the world. More studies are added every month.
Multi-Patented Manufacturing Process
Without chemicals or excessive heat
Nordic Naturals’ multi-patented manufacturing processes, accompanied by leading edge processing technologies, deliver fish oil with exceptional freshness and purity levels. Nordic Naturals uses several steps in processing the oils, from water and clay filters to an enzymatic molecular distillation process.
Only the natural triglyceride form of fish oil are used
Triglycerides are considered the natural form of the essential fatty acid molecule. Over 98% of all fats ingested are in triglyceride form.
Exclusive and Exceptional Raw Material
A great finished product starts with the best
Nordic Naturals starts with the best raw materials available: fish low on the food chain, which naturally contain low levels of impurities. All of our products are made exclusively from three fish species: Arctic Cod, Anchovies, and Sardines, as they are naturally high in the Omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA. Additionally, we use organic evening primrose and borage oils whenever possible for our fish oil blend products.
Only harvest in areas that have a plentiful supply
Nordic Naturals' fish are harvested only from abundant waters: our Arctic cod/Skrei are harvested in Arctic Norway outside of Bodø, and our anchovies and sardines are harvested from the Norwegian Sea and the Southern Pacific Ocean, which are some of the world's healthiest oceans. Sardines and anchovies, given their short reproductive cycles, are considered ideal species for sustainability. Nordic Naturals also ensures that 100% of all fish harvested are utilized for human or animal consumption.
Optimal Blend of Natural Stabilizers
Nordic Naturals has spent over five years researching the impact of various natural stabilizers on
fish oil. A recent study completed at Nutrasource Diagnostics in 2005 showed that Nordic Naturals’ product freshness level (measured by peroxide value) increased only 6% over a 36-month period, compared to other products showing an increase of more than 50% over an 18-month period. Exceptional freshness means no fishy smell or odor, and improved compliance and results.
Exceeds International Pharmaceutical Standards
Standards are set to protect consumers
Governmental fish oil quality standards do not exist in the United States. To ensure consistent quality, Nordic Naturals adheres to and exceeds the stringent Norwegian Medicinal Standard (NMS) and the European Pharmacopoeia Standard (EPS) as well as the voluntary standards set by the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) and the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3s (GOED) for all of our products. These standards guarantee quality products by setting maximum allowances on peroxides, heavy metals, dioxins, and PCBs.
No Heavy Metals
Nordic Naturals products show no detectable lead or mercury when tested down to 0.1 ppm, which is 10 times below the Norwegian Medicinal Standard and European Pharmacopoeia Standard limits.
Nordic Naturals oils have been tested down to 1.0 ppt with zero detection of dioxins. The Norwegian Medicinal Standard and European Pharmacopoeia Standard limits for dioxins are 2 ppt. Analysis is based on the toxicity equivalent testing methodology established by the World Health Organization (WHO).
Nordic Naturals oils show no detectable Dioxin-like PCBs when tested down to 1.0 ppt. The Norwegian Medicinal Standard limit for PCBs is 3 ppt. No Limit has been established by the European Pharmacopoeia Standard. Analysis is based on the toxicity equivalent testing methodology established by the WHO.
California's Proposition 65
Using the most advanced testing methods to detect PCBs, third-party tests show that Nordic Naturals products have no detectable levels at one part per trillion of Non-Ortho and Mono-Ortho PCBs and are compliant with the WHO.
