Calanus® Oil is a new and highly bioactive form of omega-3. Calanus® Oil´s solid scientific documentation show that it counteracts diet-induced obesity and insulin resistance, reduces inflammation and increases aerobic capacity.

Calanus® Oil is the natural lipid extract from Calanus finmarchicus, the small copepod that is the engine of the North Atlantic ecosystem. These precious lipids are finally available as a source of nutrients for humans.

The biomedical research on Calanus® Oil is done by independent researchers at the UiT- The Arctic University of Norway and other scientific institutions in Norway and abroad. The researchers are stunned by the good results. Calanus® Oil has a positive influence on metabolic processes related to insulin handling, fat deposition and aerobic capacity in addition to a powerful anti-inflammatory action.

As per 2017 Calanus AS supplies Calanus® Oil to four human clinical trials within metabolic health, aerobic capacity, insulin sensitivity and cognitive function in children.

In comparative studies with classic omega-3, Calanus® Oil has demonstrated more potency, higher uptake and additional benefits, clearly showing that the form of omega-3 is at least as important as the amount of omega-3 ingested.

Whereas classic omega-3s come as triglycerides, ethyl esters and phospholipids, Calanus® Oil comes as wax esters. Calanus® Oil is the only commercially available source of wax esters.

These are some of the benefits that have been documented in preclinical trials:

• Optimizes insulin handling

• Counteracts intra-abdominal obesity

• Counteracts non alcoholic fatty liver disease

• Enhances endurance and oxygen uptake

• Decreases inflammation
