Dr. Jan Raa, a world-renowned microbiologist, was looking for a way to save the Norwegian salmon industry from the constant barrage of bacterial infections they faced at farming facilities.
At the time, salmon were routinely treated with antibiotics to ward off infection. But antibiotics only achieved limited success because infecting microbes often quickly develop resistant strains. Dr. Raa discovered that beta glucan, if carefully and properly extracted from the cell walls of baker's yeast, could dramatically increase the salmon's resistance to infections without any of the negative consequences of using antibiotics because beta glucan enhanced the salmon's own natural immunities. So effective was this discovery that Dr. Raa began to produce his beta glucan, now internationally known as Norwegian Beta Glucan (NBG), to be used as a natural immune enhancing commercial feed ingredient.
Because of his sudden and profound success with NBG, Dr. Raa and his colleagues founded Biotec Pharmacon in 1991.

Arctic Ruby Oil - Calanus finmarchicus - The most sustainable, powerful, and pure source of essential omega-3s ever discovered!

Possibly the world's most precious marine oil comes from a sea organism Calanus finmarchicus found off the coast of Norway,---a sea organism whose phenomenal health benefits lay dormant, actually ignored by leading scientists, until a Norwegian scientist, Dr. Jan Raa, decided to look deeper.
What he discovered would shock the scientific community and contribute to Dr. Raa earning Norway's most prestigious award, the Commander of St. Olav, presented by the King himself!

Recently, Dr. Raa realized this never-before-fished, tiny sea creature (only #2 above plankton in the food chain) was the key source of energy, proteins, vitamins, minerals, and the extremely powerful antioxidant-astaxanthin-for sustaining migrating sea birds and mammals on harsh, long journeys.
