Benefits

The pristine waters of the Aleutian Islands are home to scores of fish species, including one that has been linked to health and wellness for more than a century: Alaskan Cod. This is a fish that contains high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, including EPA, DHA, and DPA. Studies show that omega-3 fatty acids are linked to immune function and energy metabolism, as well as building healthy nerves, brains, and cell membranes.* Because omega-3s have been shown to improve chemical messaging and cell structure inside the body, these fats may help us respond better to immune challenges, enhance recovery after injury or overexertion, and even manage stress.*

Ingredient Stories

A DEEP DIVE INTO DUTCH HARBOR OMEGA™
REJUVENATE FOR RESILIENCE!

  • ALASKAN COD LIVERS

    Why cod liver—how did this even become a “thing”? To understand the product, you must first understand the fish. Alaskan cod swim in deep, cold water—very extreme conditions. To survive and thrive, these fish need strong immune systems and their livers play an essential role. In cod, the liver accounts for nearly 20% of the weight of the fish. The large size of this organ tells us quite a lot about the metabolic power that is needed to keep a fish resilient in a harsh environment. In Alaskan cod, a unique nutrient composition is paired with exceptionally efficient biochemical machinery. The result: cod livers contain natural substances that have been linked to immune defense and human resilience for more than a century.*

    By now, courtesy of reality television, most people have some level of familiarity with the commercial fishing industry. There was a time in the not-so-distant past when irresponsible fishing practices brought our seas to the brink of crisis. Indeed, the threats of depletion and habitat loss have not entirely passed. The time is now for intentional and conscientious stewardship of our oceans and marine life. Big Bold Health partners with fishermen who use hook-and-line equipment and flash freeze the fish immediately after harvesting, which are practices that humane, eco-friendly, and set high standards for quality. Our team enthusiastically supports these important efforts that protect our vital planetary resources.

  • OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS

    The nutrients that takes center stage in any conversation about fish oil are the omega-3 fatty acids: eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), and docasapentaenoic acid (DPA). For adults, EPA, DHA, and DPA are important. We can use other kinds of fats for energy, but for best immune function, energy metabolism, and building healthy nerves, brains, and cell membranes, we need omega-3s.* The unique properties of omega-3 fats help us on all of these levels because they improve chemical messaging and cell structure inside the body.*

  • PRO-RESOLVING MEDIATORS (PRMs)

    Just when you think you know it all, science tells you to think again. Pro-resolving mediators (PRMs) are natural molecules that are produced by EPA and DHA—two of the omega-3 fatty acids—and they have only recently been discovered. Interestingly, PRMs are found in human breast milk, and it is thought that the role they play there is to support the developing immune system of the infant.* They are also found elsewhere in nature, and one of the most significant sources is raw or minimally processed fish oil. Researchers all around the world are now studying PRMs. As biochemical mediators, these molecules appear to regulate inflammatory processes, modulate infection, and influence cellular repair after tissue injury.*

  • VITAMIN A

    Cod liver oil contains a natural form of vitamin A. Industrial processing methods can often strip this important nutrient from oil that is destined for consumer products, but Big Bold Health’s proprietary system retains the integrity of this ingredient. Vitamin A is well-known to be very important for the support of immune function and it can be significant in activating genes that regulate immune defense.*

  • VITAMIN D

    Like vitamin A, the all-natural form of vitamin D that is present in the livers of Alaskan cod at the time they are caught and frozen is preserved through the consciously crafted standards that Big Bold Health follows. Vitamin D is a bit of a virtuoso: studies show that it can affect a broad swath of physical, metabolic, cognitive, and mood-related functions.* Within the immune system, vitamin D can play a role in immune balance, cytokine production, infectious disease risk, and regulation of inflammation.*

Quality

Here at Big Bold Health, quality is very important to us. Our team is committed to environmental responsibility and regeneration, scientific innovation, and manufacturing methods that embody the spirit of craftsmanship.

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. By visiting and using the Site, you agree that your use of our Site, and any dispute over privacy, is governed by this Privacy Policy.

How We Collect and Use Information

 

We may collect and store personal or other information that you voluntarily supply to us online while using the Site (e.g., while on the Site or in responding via email to a feature provided on the Site). The Site only contacts individuals who specifically request that we do so or in the event that they have signed up to receive our messaging, attended one of our events, or have purchased one of our products. The Site collects personally identifying information from our users during online registration and online purchasing. Generally, this information includes name and e-mail address for registration or opt-in purposes and name, postal address, and credit card information when registering for our events or purchasing our products. All of this information is provided to us by you.

 

We also collect and store information that is generated automatically as you navigate online through the Site. For example, we may collect information about your computer’s connection to the Internet, which allows us, among other things, to improve the delivery of our web pages to you and to measure traffic on the Site. We also may use a standard feature found in browser software called a “cookie” to enhance your experience with the Site. Cookies are small files that your web browser places on your hard drive for record-keeping purposes. By showing how and when visitors use the Site, cookies help us deliver advertisements, identify how many unique users visit us, and track user trends and patterns. They also prevent you from having to re-enter your preferences on certain areas of the Site where you may have entered preference information before. The Site also may use web beacons (single-pixel graphic files also known as “transparent GIFs”) to access cookies and to count users who visit the Site or open HTML-formatted email messages.

 

We use the information we collect from you while you are using the Site in a variety of ways, including using the information to customize features; advertising that appear on the Site; and, making other offers available to you via email, direct mail or otherwise. We also may provide your information to third parties, such as service providers, contractors and third-party publishers and advertisers for a variety of purposes. Unless you inform us in accordance with the process described below, we reserve the right to use, and to disclose to third parties, all of the information collected from and about you while you are using the Site in any way and for any purpose, such as to enable us or a third party to provide you with information about products and services. If you do not wish your information to be used for these purposes, you must send a letter to the Online Privacy Coordinator whose address is listed at the end of this Privacy Policy requesting to be taken off any lists of information that may be used for these purposes or that may be given or sold to third-parties.

 

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily make your personal information available for viewing by third parties online – for example on message boards, web logs, through email, or in chat areas – that information can be seen, collected and used by others besides us. We cannot be responsible for any unauthorized third-party use of such information.

 

Some of our third-party advertisers and ad servers that place and present advertising on the Site also may collect information from you via cookies, web beacons or similar technologies.
