DHA and EPA ratio of 3:1 being equivalent to the ratio in mother’s milk
Natural source of choline beneficial for memory, nerve, joint, muscle, eye, and gut health
Naturally stable and resistant to oxidation as a result of high phospholipid levels
Natural emulsifier, easily soluble in oil and dispersible in water
No fishy aftertaste

ROMEGA® ARCTIC CAVIAR PROTEIN
Romega® Herring Caviar Protein
The world’s first neutral smell and odor free premium marine protein. This source consists of 90% pure protein and contains all essential amino acids, high content of nucleotides and perfect for maintenance of muscle mass, recovery, weight management and meal replacements.
The nutrient density – having the highest amount of phospholipid-bound DHA on the market.
Based on extracts from the beginning of life (roe), combining sustainably sourced fish oil and phospholipids, Romega® is extraordinary and new, effective and potent. An excellent dietary supplement alternative for a balanced nutrition.
Advantages of Romega® oils over traditional fish oil are: DHA:EPA ratio ~ 3:1, a source of choline, emulsifying properties, more bioavailable, more potent (smaller daily serving size // capsule), increased oxidative resistance, less fishy burps, and more efficacious for some conditions and diseases. The more protected and stable Romega® oils can be readily mixed into aqueous foods – making it the excellent choice for health food and skin products. Additional advantages of Romega® oils include a potential to be labelled Kosher and Halal, manufactured from a sustainable, MSC certified and environmentally friendly raw material source, Norwegian Spring Spawning Herring.
Major sources of Marine Omega-3 phospholipids are: roe (fish eggs) from herring and krill oil. AN has chosen to develop Romega® from herring roe because herring is a certified and sustainable fishery and the roe are already available from existing fishery operations in Norway. Thus, more fish do not need to be caught to obtain the roe for our operations. Premium food grade roe extracts have been developed from selected fishery operations locally in Norway.
The base component of the phospholipid (for example, choline or serine) may have health benefits independent or synergistic to the Omega-3 fatty acid components. Choline is important for healthy liver and brain function. Choline acts as a precursor to the powerful brain neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which supports memory and information processing. Phospholipid-bound omega-3 fatty acids seem to have select advantages in how they are absorbed and utilized by the human body. Phospholipids have the advantages of being soluble in aqueous vehicles, are more oxidative stable, and potentially more bioavailable than triglycerides.
Omega-3 fatty acids are recognized as important to heart health and are even available as a therapeutic drug in several markets, including the US (Lovaza) and EU (Omacor). Other conditions improved with Omega-3 fatty acids are diabetes, cognition, and inflammatory conditions. The amount of scientific evidence supporting use of Omega-3 for various conditions and for optimizing health is growing in both volume and recognition. Many of us do not consume enough Omega-3 fatty acids according to international recommendations.
Marine Omega-3 phospholipids are phospholipids found in marine organisms, enriched in Omega-3 fatty acids. Technically, glycero-, di-acylated phospholipids contain: a phosphorous group linked to a base (choline, serine, inositol, ethanolamine); and two fatty acids esterified to the glycerol backbone. The primary long chain Omega-3 fatty acids in Romega® are DHA and EPA.
Phospholipids are a class of lipids that are a major component of all cell membranes as they can form lipid bilayers. Due to their unique structure, phospholipids are hydrophilic, making them natural emulsifiers and facilitating easy mixing with water, gastric juices etc. Most phospholipids contain a diglyceride, a phosphate group, and a simple organic molecule such as choline.
