Nordic Naturals New High-Concentrate EFA Product Targets Joint and Immune Health

WATSONVILLE, Calif., Nov. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Nordic Naturals Physician Exclusive Division announces the release of ProEFA Xtra. ProEFA Xtra provides an exceptionally high concentration of three fatty acids essential to human health. Designed to effectively support joint flexibility and immune health, this concentrated product from Nordic Naturals delivers more functional fatty acids per capsule than any other product, making it more convenient to consume beneficial amounts of these healthful nutrients.

Each two-capsule serving of ProEFA Xtra provides 850 mg EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and 220 mg DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), two Omega-3 fats from fresh, purified fish oil as well as 257 mg GLA (gamma linolenic acid), an Omega-6 fat from borage oil, with added natural stabilizers. In addition, these essential fatty acids (EFAs) are delivered in natural triglyceride form, the form in which EFAs occur naturally in food and the human body.

According to Joar Opheim, CEO of Nordic Naturals, "We have used this formulation in lower concentration in previous clinical studies with very beneficial results, hence we created this concentration to provide a higher dose in fewer capsules."

"We believe ProEFA Xtra will provide substantial nutrition and health benefit related to the beneficial prostaglandin production of PGE3 and PGE1, and compliance will be easier," states Gretchen Vannice, MS, RD, Research Coordinator for Nordic Naturals. "More clinical research is planned in 2007."

One serving of Pro EFA Xtra meets the American Heart Association recommendation of 1 gram of EPA and DHA for individuals concerned with heart health. (Kris-Etherton et al, ATVB,2003;23:151-152.).

Nordic Naturals is the leader in omega-3 fish oils and EFA blends with exceptional taste, freshness and purity levels. The company offers both a retail line and a physician exclusive line of fish oils products, including liquids, capsules and children's chewables. For information, please visit or call 800.662.2544.
