OUD-BEIJERLAND – Calanus oil is a new and special form of omega-3 fatty acids and is only recently available as a dietary supplement.
Calanus oil is obtained from Calanus finmarchicus (zooplankton) from the clean waters of the Northern Atlantic. This oil is special because the omega-3 fatty acids are in the form of wax esters and because of its red colour.
Calanus oil has long been used as a food source in Atlantic salmon farming. For the first time, this special oil is now available in the United Kingdom as an active ingredient in a dietary supplement.
