Watsonville, CA (June 15, 2010) Nordic Naturals, the industry leader in omega-3 fish oil, introduces Omega Probiotic™, a synergistic blend of fish oil and live probiotic spores for optimal digestive and gastrointestinal health. The breakthrough formula combines two important nutrients that are commonly lacking in today’s modern diet in one easy-to-take supplement that does not require refrigeration. 

Concentrated fish oil works in synergy with a unique spore-form probiotic, Bacillus coagulans, to deliver all the health benefits of omega-3s (EPA+DHA), while also supporting the immune system and promoting an optimal balance of healthy bacteria in the digestive tract. Unlike most probiotics on the market, this species of probiotic is in spore form. Research shows that this unique spore-form probiotic delivers 10 times more live cultures than common probiotic yogurt cultures, delivers those cultures more effectively and does not require special treatments, such as refrigeration. 

According to Dr. Joseph Maroon, Nordic Naturals medical advisor, “This timely product provides an important way for consumers to be proactive with their health care. This two-in-one product is also perfect for travel, making compliance easy.”

Nordic Naturals Omega Probiotic offers these benefits: 

  • Provides more than 2 billion stable and viable probiotic spores per serving
  • Provides double strength EPA+DHA fish oil for more omega-3 benefits
  • Supports the body’s natural anti-inflammatory response
  • Promotes a healthy balance of intestinal flora
  • Enhances overall digestive and gastrointestinal health and function

Omega Probiotic contains purified fish oil from anchovies and sardines sustainably sourced from the waters of the South Pacific. Nordic Naturals’ policy is to harvest 100 percent of its fish in compliance with the Norwegian fisheries management system, which has been a model for the sustainable harvest of marine life for more than 30 years.
