Nordic Naturals developed Omega Joint Xtra based on a 2009 human clinical study which showed that the combination of the omega-3s, EPA+DHA, from fish oil and glucosamine sulfate worked better together than glucosamine sulfate alone.
Most available glucosamine is derived from shellfish however; Omega Joint Xtra delivers the same highly absorbable and heavily researched form of glucosamine sulfate, but sourced exclusively from non-GMO, organic corn.
The formula also includes added UC-II® Undenatured Type II Collagen, the primary form of collagen found in cartilage, to supports the rebuilding of joint cartilage. By combining this revolutionary ingredient with the industry-leading fish oil and shellfish-free glucosamine sulfate, Omega Joint Xtra delivers targeted and accelerated support for joint mobility, flexibility, and comfort. It also supports connective tissue and joint cartilage repair therefore supporting overall joint health.
All Nordic Naturals fish oil products are in a triglyceride molecular form— the form naturally found in fish, which the body most easily absorbs. Every batch of Nordic Naturals oils is third-party tested for environmental toxins and heavy metals, surpassing the strictest international standards for purity and freshness. In fact, you can view the certificate of analysis for your bottle by simply entering the batch number on the Nordic Naturals website! All fish oils are Friend of the Sea (FOS) certified and sustainably made in a zero waste facility powered by biofuel.
