A Healthy Inflammatory Response

A common Western diet often has a higher percentage of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acids, which can lead to a harmful condition of low-grade chronic inflammation in the body. Our balanced EPA/DHA Omega-3 can help restore your Omega-3/Omega-6 levels.


A polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA), this is a nutrient which the human body cannot generate on its own

Scientists believe that these benefits are due to the PUFAs in fish oil, which include eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)

  • Enhancing elasticity
  • improving barrier function
  • Promoting skin healing
  • Protecting it from free radicals and UV rays with its antioxidant
  • Relieving conditions like eczema, rosacea, acne and psoriasis
  • Reducing inflammation, especially from UV light
  • Regulating oil production
  • Repairing sun damage to help skin retain its elasticity & texture.


Beneath the Surface

Beauty may not be skin deep, having smooth soft and supple skin is certainly an advantage. Omega-3s reputation as a natural beauty aid is probably the most well known of its advantages. Apart from boosting the hydration of hair, skin and nails, its anti-inflammatory nature can help maintain and reduce skin conditions.

Why is Omega-3 So Effective?

Omega-3 fatty acids are simply crucial components in the cell membranes! A healthy cell membrane not only protects cells from harmful substances, but also allows nutrients and waste to easily move in and out. A strong membrane also enables cells to retain water better, which results in softer, plump skin.

The components of Omega-3 are well renowned, to support the skin’s overall health.

Your body incorporates dietary fatty acids into the cell membranes. Healthy cell membranes retain water in the skin, hydrating the cells promoting soft and firm skin. Omega-3 fatty acids contribute to the production of anti-inflammatory compounds which can help to deter the aging process.

Acne & Hyperpigmentation

The irritation to skin caused by acne from pimples to cysts, can be improved by the general anti-inflammatory nature from Omega-3´s within the body from a continuous and sustained intake. Many studies have indicated the great benefits to acne.

Hyperpigmentation, are the darker patches of skin that occur as a result of sun damage (excess melanin). There are other causes of hyperpigmentation, aging, hormonal changes, medications which affect sun sensitivity.

A quality wild water marine omega-3 oil, has the ability to improve hyperpigmentation, potentially minimizing marks left by a wound and accelerate healing. The components of DHA are realized to slow melanin production, which lessens hyperpigmentation.

Do Omega-3 oils have any adverse effects on the skin?

Omega 3 fish oil can cause reactions in some people with allergies to fish.

For example, someone with a fish or shellfish allergy who has a reaction, may develop eczema. A person who has a current eczema condition may find that their symptoms increase.

If an individual has a severe allergic reaction to fish oil, such as trouble breathing, immediate medical attention should be sought.

Taking Omega 3 fish oils?

We only recommend Omega-3 in Capsules, this is the most efficient means. While Omega-3 as an oil may be easier to mix with other foods, the capsules prevent the oil antioxidizing with the air.

As a food supplement, there is no specific daily dosage. However, we recommend 2-6x capsules daily. Through our Swiss partners studies in Luzerne, we have registered a 90% decrease in inflammation within the body when consuming 6x capsules daily.

Norway Omega balanced and multipurpose Omega-3, contains 330mg EPA / 220mg DHA and 100mg of Omega-3, a total of 650mg. We retain our fish oil in its natural state (TGN OMEGA) though twelve stages of refinement, a min. 90% TGN Omega-3 fish oil.

It is recommended to take fish oil supplements with food that contains some dietary fat, which optimizes the bioavailability from the omega 3 fatty acids.

As with any nutritional supplement, it is a good speak with healthcare professional prior to including Omega 3 as part of your ongoing daily routine.


Premium quality Omega-3 Fish oil, such as Norway Omega´s Multipurpose (12x Distilled) Wild Water blend is your answer to a true source of omega-3 fatty acids. Research displays an improvement in overall skin health, along with reducing specific skin conditions. Typically the first thing to notice is the increase in nail growth from taking Omega-3 fish oils, activated by a decrease in inflammation. Usually as soon as 2-3 weeks from including 2-6x capsules into your diet.
