PreCardix®, a natural product for healthy blood pressure, results from over a decade of research and development led by Marealis. This cutting-edge Norwegian biotech develops sustainable, effective, and natural marine-based solutions for blood pressure health. PreCardix® contains bioactive marine peptides derived from the shells of Arctic prawns (Pandalus borealis) supplied by parent company Stella Polaris – a leader in sustainable cold-water prawn production for over fifty years. These shells, typically a waste by-product, are hydrolyzed and carefully refined, resulting in a clinically proven natural health product that maintains healthy blood pressure and cardiovascular health. Gold standard clinical studies confirmed these remarkable health benefits. The ground-breaking research was featured in the International Journal of Hypertension and led to FDA, Health Canada, and EFSA approval. PreCardix® is now available in the US and Canada and will soon be launched in other markets worldwide. PreCardix® has been a huge influence in Marealis’ status as a certified B Corporation.
Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corps are accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy.
CEO Andreas Semmingsen led the rigorous certification process to hold the company to the highest possible standards and to inspire a culture of excellence. The essence of Marealis is a combination of science and environmental stewardship. The potential to leverage waste to develop natural solutions for one of the world’s most pressing health challenges.
In addition to being a B Corp, Marealis sources ingredients from Stella Polaris, which holds several third-party certifications, including MSC, Certified Sustainable Seafood, KRAV, and Sedex. Each of these global organizations recognizes Stella Polaris’ sustainable and environmentally responsible practices and quality control.
PreCardix® is also a proud supporter of Hypertension Canada. Hypertension Canada’s mission is to advance health through the prevention and control of high blood pressure and its complications.
