Omni-B Active

£ 22.25
Supplementation with Omni-B Active provides high dosages of all the B vitamins - in combination with the essential nutrients Choline and Inositol. B vitamins are a group of water-soluble vitamins each of which plays a role in cell metabolism. The group of vitamins B consists of a total of 8 water-soluble vitamins, and the vitamin B group includes all essential, water-soluble vitamins - except vitamin C. B vitamins are well absorbed from the small intestine and distributed from here where they are easily assimilated in the body.. Due to  their role as co enzymes in the organism's metabolism, the B vitamins are present in all body tissues.

Make sure to use all the B vitamins

Because the B-vitamins are water soluble, they are with few exceptions virtually non-toxic - even in large doses - as any possibly excess of these water-soluble vitamins do not accumulate in the body but are rapidly excreted via urine. It is always recommended to take the entire B-vitamin complex, as a whole because they work in synergy with each other.  This is probably also the reason why the B vitamins naturally often occur together in foods containing B vitamins.

Activated forms

Nordic Nutraceuticals’ focus is on optimising the body's bio availability of nutrients in our products, because of this we predominantly use activated B-vitamins in our product Omni-B Active. "Active" in the name Omni-B Active is merely a reflection of the fact, that the product is largely based on activated B-vitamins. The activated forms used are Riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), Vitamin B6, Folic acid (B9) and vitamin B12. By using primarily the activated forms of B vitamins we ensure an effective bio availability of these nutrients in the body. For example, in the case of vitamin B12, the most commonly used form, Cyanocobalamin, is converted in the liver to Methylcobalamin before it can be absorbed. In Omni-B Active we use Methylcobalamin thus ensuring an optimum readily absorbable form, which does not require conversion in order to be ingested. As a source of folic acid, we for the same reasons also supply the activated form, called methyl-folate. OmniX and Omnimin also includes the activated forms of niacin and pantothenic acid.

Choline and Inositol

Omni-B Active also contains the essential nutrients Choline and Inositol, both often grouped with the B vitamins. Choline and Inositol are located mainly as part of the structure of the so-called phospholipids throughout the body, which are complexes of polyunsaturated fatty acids. Phospholipids are important building blocks of cell membranes and are thus essential for cell function in all body tissues and organs.

With phospholipid blend for efficient bioavailability

Omni-B Active contains a proprietary phospholipid blend. Phospholipids are important components of the body's cell membranes, and they contribute to the efficient bioavailability the nutrients in Omni-B Active.

Also for vegetarians and vegans

Omni-B Active is registered with the organisation The Vegan Society, that have  approved all ingredients in this product. Omni-B Active can be consumed safely by both vegetarians and vegans. The Vegan Society is located in England and is the oldest vegan organization in the world, founded in 1944.

OmniKrill®

£ 23.49
OmniKrill® contains krill oil of premium quality. The oil has its origins in the Antarctic Ocean - the world's cleanest waters - where krill  live in large colonies. Health food stores in Denmark have awarded OmniKrill® Health Food Product of the Year in 2011 with the comments:` Good quality` - `Beneficial effect` - `Caring for the environment` - High level of active substances - Innovative and cutting edge. Served in capsules made of fish gelatin. There is no fishy after taste and does not cause "indigestion" typically associated with the intake of marine oils. 

Odorless capsule

In the Autumn of 2016 OmniKrill® was relaunched with a completely new type of capsule – still made from fish gelatin. What distinguishes the new capsule is that it is now completely odorless, thus avoiding the characteristic krill-odor associated with traditional capsules. Changing the capsule is an important part of our Nordic Nutraceutical Pure-strategy, in which we always strive to offer our users as clean products as possible by reducing the use of excipients to an absolute minimum. The new type of capsule does not require excipients at all – as opposed to traditional capsules – which means the capsule contains the active, beneficial krill-oil served in a capsules made from fish gelatin – and nothing else! Another important advantage of the new capsule is the increased stability of the sensitive constituents, made possible by the innovative sealing of the capsule, which reduces risk of leakage and oxidation to an absolute minimum not seen before with traditional capsules.

Essential fatty acids

The oil provides the body with the healthy Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA in phospholipid form. OmniKrill® was the first product in Denmark to contain the healthy Omega-3 fatty acids in the phospholipid form, and the first product to offer this new generation of Omega-3 fatty acids, which have superior bio availability compared to traditional fatty acid forms. EPA and DHA are essential fatty acids that must be supplemented to the body in the same manner as vitamins because the body cannot produce these essential building blocks itself. 

The heart, brain and eyesight

The long-chain Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA help the heart to function normally. Studies in healthy humans have shown that this beneficial effect on the heart depends on the dose. This effect is obtained with a daily intake of 250 mg of EPA and DHA (total). OmniKrill® also provides DHA to maintain normal vision and normal function of the brain. These beneficial effects are obtained with a daily intake of 250 mg of DHA. The Omega-3 fatty acid DHA is the most common fatty acid in the human brain, as much as 20% of all the fatty acids present in the brain is DHA. 

Nordic Pure®

OmniKrill® is part of the quality mark, Nordic Pure®. Here Nordic Nutraceuticals consumers are given a unique opportunity to gain insight into the quality and purity of our marine and plant-based oils. Purity analysis are carried out by a reputable, independent Danish laboratory.

Complement

OmniKrill® constitutes a good addition to to your diet, which according to the official dietary recommendations from the National Food Authority should preferably contain fish 2 times a week. Biosym was one of the first companies to introduce fish oils into the Danish market back in the 1980's. We  have great expertise when it comes to  selection, composition, production, and the quality of marine oils we use. OmniKrill® equates to safety and quality. The gentle process where krill oil's natural properties are preserved and contact with atmospheric oxygen is avoided, and its high content of natural antioxidants provides a very stable oil, which is better protected against rancidity than conventional fish oil. The presence of phospholipids and the powerful antioxidant astaxanthin in good amounts has a protective and stabilising effect on the fatty acids of the krill oil. This, and the gentle handling of oil during manufacturing, is the main reason why OmniKrill® have unusually good purity figures – the  Totoxnumbers. Nordic Nutraceutical recommends that the capsules in OmniKrill® be swallowed whole, and that no attempt is made to bite into the capsule. Pure, natural Krill oil naturally has a very distinctive, powerful fish-shrimp-like smell and taste. This characteristic smell and taste should not be confused with rancidity. OmniKrill® has impressively good purity figures. 

Sustainability

Krill are an important component of the Antarctic ecosystem. A single krill can weigh up to two grams and can be up to five to ten years old. The Antarctic krill population overall by weight, is about 400 million tons thus making it the most common animals in the world measured by weight. The Organisation The Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) monitors the catch of krill to ensure maintaining a sustainable population of Antarctic krill. The organization's monitoring ensures that only a tiny portion of the stock is used for production of krill oil, as well as ensuring that the animals that feed on krill, are not affected by the harvesting of krill. OmniKrill® is also certified by Friend of the Sea, a leading international organisation that controls the way marine  based products are  harvested. OmniKrill®  meets the organisation sustainability criteria.

Omnimin®

£ 16.95
Omnimin® is an ideal multivitamin for anyone who wants a strong vitamin and mineral supplement with antioxidants and other nutrients. The composition of Omnimin® focuses on strength and bioavailability, using activated vitamins, minerals and organic lecithin. Omnimin® is also suitable as a multi-vitamin for vegetarians. It is a 100% vegetarian product that is registered with The Vegetarian Society in England.

Based on research

Omnimin® is a very comprehensive multivitamin - with all 28 vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other essential nutrients. Omnimin® has been voted Best New Health & Nutrition Product (best new health food product). The award ceremony took place at the Natural Product Scandinavia event in 2013; this is Scandinavia's leading international business exhibition for natural products, health food, natural beauty and organic products.  Omnimin® has also won the award for the Year's Vitamin at the Danish Health & Science Awards 2018.

New color and fewer auxiliaries

Omnimin® has been optimized and as one of the first companies in Europe, we can now offer a new natural tablet coating. This means that technical aids like titanium dioxide are no longer necessary. The color of the tablets is therefore less yellow, due to the fact that it is based on natural dyes from safflower and lemon. Some of the other changes include chromium and selenium, which now contain respectively 150 μg (before 125 μg) and 160 μg (before 125 μg) per two tablets. The content of Vitamin B6 has also been changed to 14 mg (before 12 mg) and molybdenum to 100 μg (before 25 μg) per two tablets. Copper and manganese, on the other hand, are reduced a little. It should also be emphasized that the source of calcium is now only from a plant-based source (algae).

With phospholipid blend for efficient use

Omnimin® contains a phospholipid blend. Phospholipids are important components of the body's cell membranes, and they contribute specifically to the efficient use of the fat-soluble nutrients in Omnimin®.

Activated Vitamin B

As mentioned, a great emphasis is set on optimising the body’s use of nutrients in our products. In Omnimin® this is reflected in the fact that activated B vitamins are used. The activated forms of the B vitamins are used in order to ensure effective use in the body. For example: in the case of  vitamin B12, the most commonly used form, Cyanocobalamin, is converted in the liver to Methylcobalamin before it is absorbed. In Omnimin® we utilise pure Methylcobalamin and so the vitamin is readily absorbable and does not require conversion by the body. As a source of folic acid, we use the activated form, Methylfolate. It also includes the activated forms of Niacin and Pantothenic acid.

Suitable for Vegetarians

Omnimin is registered with The Vegetarian Society, which guarantees this  product is 100% vegetarian. The Vegetarian Society is located in England, and this is the oldest vegetarian organisation in the world, founded in 1847.

OmniVegan®

£ 21.49

Calcium source in OmniVegan®

The calcium source in OmniVegan® is organically bound calcium from haval, which is also used in our other multivitamins. It provides better bioavailability. At the same time, the calcium source contains a little magnesium, whereby the magnesium source in OmniVegan® is a blend - with magnesium oxide.

With phospholipids

Sunflower Lecithin is now also included in OmniVegan®, similar to other multivitamins from Nordic Nutraceuticals. Sunflower Lecithin contains useful phospholipids that contribute to the efficient utilization of the other nutrients.

Vegan Vitamin D3

OmniVegan® a vegan source of vitamin D3 from specially selected wild-grown lichen. Lichen consists of a fungus and an algae that co-operate in a form of symbiosis.

Retinol from a non-animal source

Both vegetable carotenoids and retinol from animal sources belong to the group of A-vitamins. Retinol is the most effective and biologically active form of vitamin A, while the carotenoids must be converted to retinol in the body to have the same effect. The most common form of vitamin A in supplements is retinol. However, most vegan-certified products supply beta-carotene and other carotenoids, but it is worth noting that OmniVegan® contains retinol from a non-animal source, which our registration with The Vegan Society confirms.

B12-vitamin in the form of Methylcobalamin

As a vegetarian and vegan, it is essential to ensure that one obtains enough vitamin B12. OmniVegan® contains Methylcobalamin, which is a more easily-absorbed and biologically more active form of vitamin B12 than the traditional form Cyanocobalamin. Methylcobalamin works more actively, and dosage requirements are therefore lower than for traditional vitamin B12. OmniVegan® includes vitamins A, B, C, D, E, K and the minerals calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, copper, iodine, manganese, chromium and selenium. Below are a number of physiological effects of vitamins, minerals and trace elements - all approved by the English and European health authorities. The mechanisms of action mentioned below are just a sample of what nutrients can beneficially do (this is not a complete list). OmniVegan® is registered with the organization The Vegan Society, which has checked and approved all ingredients present in OmniVegan®. Registration in this context is your guarantee for a 100% vegan product. The Vegan Society is located in England and is the oldest vegan organization in the world, founded in 1944.

Veg D3

£ 14.95

Veg D3 –High potency Plant-based Vitamin D3.

Nordic-Nutraceuticals are one of the first company`s within the  Nordic countries to introduce a plant-based version of Vitamin D3. Veg D3® features 75 µg (3000 iu) Vitamin D3 per capsule. To further enhance the uptake a phospholipid blend is added. Anyone who preferred to use a plant-based forms of vitamin D have traditionally had to take vitamin D2, which is typically synthesised. Vitamin D2 also requires a higher dose than the D3 form to be effective. It has therefore been desirable to locate a plant-based source of vitamin D3, which is a more natural form and resembles the way in which the body absorbs vitamin D from sunlight.

Lichen - the first plant-based Vitamin D3 alternative

Lichen consists of a fungus and an algae that cooperates in a form of symbiosis. The algae takes care of the production of sugar substances using CO2 and water as well as the energy of the sun. The fungus  gets nutrition from the algae, which it also helps protect. This gives them unique features such as survival in extreme climates and the ability to grow and accumulate useful nutrients, including vitamin D3. There are many different species of Lichen, and in Veg D3 specially selected wild-grown lichen, which contains higher concentration of Vitamin D3, are selected.

Veg D3 contains a vegan source of vitamin D3 derived from carefully selected wild growing lichen.

Vitamin D helps maintain normal bones, especially since Vitamin D promotes a normal absorption of calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin D contributes to the normal function of the immune system, and plays an important role in the cell division process. In addition, vitamin D contributes to maintaining normal teeth and a normal muscle function. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin, therefore Sunflower Lecithin is added to ensure optimum bioavailability in veg D3. Lecithin has a high contents of Phospholipids, which are important constituents of the body's cell membranes.

Zinc 3

£ 9.75
Zinc 3 contains 20 mg zinc per tablet from 3 easily absorbable organic sources: zinc L-pidolate, zinc bisglycinate and zinc citrate.

Immune system and antioxidant defence

Zinc helps the immune system to function normally. In cases of zinc deficiency several important functions of the immune system are inhibited - eg. the development of the immune system's cells and antibodies. Zinc is part of the body's antioxidant defence which protects the body's cells against oxidative stress. Our bodies are constantly exposed to free radicals which are extremely aggressive molecules that can cause oxidative damage to the cells in our body. The free radicals are formed during the body's normal combustion processes, but also when exposed to for example, sunlight, cigarette smoke, air pollution and hard physical activity. In order to neutralise the free radicals and avoid oxidative damage we need a good and varied supply of antioxidants.

Bones

Zinc helps maintain normal bones. This is because zinc forms a structural part of the bones, while zinc also supports the formation of bone tissue because zinc activates important bone-forming enzymes.

Eyes, skin, hair and nails

Zinc is part of several enzymes necessary for the conversion of vitamin A, which is crucial for the eye’s ability to see. Zinc also helps to maintain normal skin, hair and nails.

Hormone system

Zinc contributes to normal fertility and reproduction. The formation of sperm cells is dependent on zinc. Zinc also helps to maintain a normal testosterone level in the blood.

Also for vegetarians and vegans

  OmniZinc 3 is a vegan product and registered with The Vegan Society, England OmniZinc 3 can safely be taken by vegetarians and vegans.
