Award-Winning Quality Since 1965

Carlson began as one woman’s mission to improve the health of her family by creating nutritional supplements with high-quality ingredients. Founder Susan Carlson’s father suffered from heart issues but found relief after taking natural-source vitamin E. Inspired by this discovery and her background as a pharmacist, Susan created one of the first full lines of vitamin E worldwide, and the product line continued growing to meet the health needs of families worldwide.

Leading the Way for Omega-3s Since 1982

Carlson helped launch the omega-3 market in North America in the early 1980s, importing our first wild caught, sustainably sourced fish oils from Norway. In 2009, we launched a new marine oil sourced from an abundant species of calamari. And in 2017, we opened Carlson Health Oils, a state-of-the-art facility in Søvik, Norway, where our fish oils are refined, distilled, and bottled. Only the finest, freshest omega-3s are transported to Carlson headquarters, located just outside of Chicago.

Help Make a Difference

For every Carlson product purchased, we’ll remove the same amount of plastic waste from our waterways, giving the purchase a net-zero plastic footprint – so we can all play a part in contributing to a cleaner, greener environment.

Sustainable From the Inside Out

The full Carlson product line is recyclable and 100% plastic neutral. Carlson offsets the plastic in our products through investments in certified plastic removal projects taking place in our global waterways. To date, we’ve helped remove more than 1/4 million pounds of plastic, which is then recycled or upcycled. Look for the Reduced Impact seal on Carlson products, and please recycle your bottle.
