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. 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.
- Omega-3 in phospholipids form; efficient absorption and bioavailability
- EPA and DHA essential fatty acids for maintenance of good health
- Powerful antioxidants astaxanthin that are not present in fish oil
- No fishy burps or bloating
