Clean and pure Energy

The small crustacean Calanus finmarchicus is the most numerous animal species on the planet, and constitutes by far the largest harvestable biomass production in the productive Norwegian Sea.

Calanus finmarchicus is an herbivorous zooplankter with a one-year lifespan. It is a complete and pure energy- and nutrient source in the marine food web, and serves as an excellent raw material for Arctic Marine Bioactives.

Scientifically Proven

In Calanus AS we work continuously to build a solid scientific basis for our 100% pure and natural products.

In collaboration with UiT The Arctic University of Norway and other scientific institutions in Norway and abroad, we conduct basic and applied research to support product development and regulatory approval. Research results are being published in peer reviewed scientific journals. 

Preclinical and clinical trials with Calanus® Oil demonstrate effector mechanisms and health benefits beyond those found in ordinary omega-3s. Calanus® Oil could actually become an important part of the solution to the ever increasing incidence of metabolic syndrome associated with the unhealthy lifestyle and obesity development in the Western world. Increased glucose tolerance, reduced deposition of intra-abdominal fat and increased oxygen uptake are some of the effects that have been documented, and that are currently being further investigated in several human clinical trials.
