      We created the omega-3 pharma market

      Over 20 years ago with our drugs Omacor® and Lovaza® - the world’s first omega-3 fatty-acid-based drug for cardiovascular disease – we created the omega-3 pharma market. We pioneered the use of omega-3s as pharmaceuticals and successfully proved the potency of omega-3s in patients suffering from cardiovascular disease and developed the reference standard for prescription omega-3 ethyl ester 90 .


    Our product – made from fish oil – can be traced along the entire value chain, back to healthy fish stocks.
