Krill oil is a premium quality Omega-3 source extracted from Krill which inhabit the cold ocean areas of the world, primarily the Antarctic and North Pacific Oceans. It contains a remarkable synergistic blend of three biologically active components: Inflammation fighting Omega-3 fatty acids, (EPA & DHA), brain-friendly phospholipids and cell protective antioxidants (such as astaxanthin, a carotenoid that gives krill its characteristic red-orange color). Krill Oil like fish oil, contains omega-3 (EPA and DHA), but hooked together in a different form from that of fish oil. The formation of Omega-3 of krill oil is a double chain phospholipids structure which is quite similar to those of the cell walls of humans, which makes krill oil much more absorbable and allows for a much easier entrance into the mitochondria and the cellular nucleus. According to the number of studies, Krill oil is tremendously effective in reducing LDL-cholesterol, raising HDL-cholesterol, and lowering blood sugar. It is also effective in reducing the pain and inflammation from rheumatoid arthritis and aches, and also appear to relieve many of the physiological and emotional symptoms of PMS and dysmenorrhea, such as irritability and depression, as well as menstrual pain. Krill Oil also contains antioxidants, including vitamin E, vitamin A, vitamin D and astaxanthin. The anti-oxidant potency of krill oil is such that when compared to fish oil in terms of ORAC (Oxygen radical absorptance capacity) values it was found to be 48 times more potent than fish oil.
1ĦBKrill oil delivers omega-3 in the phospholipids form are more efficiently absorbed via the small intestine and distributed to tissue, compared with omega-3 triglycerides. Thus, Krill oil is a more bio-efficient than fish oil.
2ĦB Krill oil effective in treating heart disease and heart-related health issues. The DHA and EPA found naturally in krill oil dramatically reduce factors of heart disease by lowering high cholesterol, reducing high blood pressure, and inhibiting plaque and blood clots in arteries.
3ĦBKrill Oil has anti-inflammatory properties; due to EPA provide pain relief from rheumatoid arthritis and other joint pains, by reducing stiffness and tenderness in the joints, and increases grip strength.
4ĦB Krill oil reduces LDL (the bad) cholesterol, raises HDL (the good) cholesterol, and helps control blood sugar, which can aid in the prevention and treatment of diabetes.
5ĦBKrill oil can assist in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis. EPA increases calcium in the body, which deposits onto bones and improves bone strength.
6ĦBKrill oil contains powerful antioxidants, astaxanthin and vitamins, that are not present in fish oil.
7ĦB Unlike fish oil, krill oil does not cause fishy burps or bloating.
