Our krill oil is a low temperature extracted oil that is derived from fresh ocean krill. It is rich in Omega-3 EPA and DHA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid and Docosahexaenoic Acid), other phospholipids and antioxidants including Astaxanthin. A large portion of the EPA and DHA in krill oil, the same fatty acids that fish oil contains, is in the form of a phospholipid, with a phosphate group on the end of the fatty acid. This results in higher bioavailability (quicker absorption) which leads to better effects than fish oil but without the risk of trace mercury or rancid oil found in many fish oil supplements. We guarantee our krill to be the freshest available and not rancid.
Emerging science demonstrates the potential of krill oil to support the body in multiple ways, some of which includes healthy blood lipids, ultra-potent marine phospholipids that help and support normal brain function, improve the ability of the liver and glucose metabolism to respond to dietary challenges, reduce inflammation in the joints, muscles and bones, boost cardiovascular function (heart health), and increase lean muscle development.*
BRAIN & EYE SUPPORT
The brain makes up one half of the central nervous system and is composed of 60% fat. Most abundant among the brain’s fatty acids is DHA, a polyunsaturated fat that plays an important role in brain function and signaling systems. Krill oil can supply the body with DHA and other Omega-3s, which are metabolized by the brain. A diet rich in Omega-3 fatty acids may support mental clarity and help promote the maintenance of a healthy brain system function. Krill is a form of Nootropic. Nootropic is a term for a supplement that is ingested for its benefits on the brain.
A diet high in Omega-3 may also support the maintenance of ongoing vision health, as retinal tissue is partially composed of DHA, which the body can only metabolize, not produce. In addition, Astaxanthin is an antioxidant that occurs naturally in krill oil. This carotenoid can help protect eyes during daily sun exposure. Unlike fish oil, krill oil provides a unique combination of Astaxanthin and DHA to support healthy vision. Adding krill oil supplements to a healthy diet can help maintain eye health and normal vision in adults.*
POTENT ANTI-INFLAMMATORY & JOINT HEALTH
Fatty acids play an important role in inflammation. They produce compounds called resolvins and protectins, which help quell inflammation before it can do too much damage to your tissues. Several studies have been published on the remarkable effectiveness of krill oil in combating inflammation related disorders, such as arthritis (Journal of the American College of Nutrition, American Journal of Gastroenterology).*
BIOAVAILABLE OMEGA’S, HEART HEALTH & ANTIOXIDANTS
Unlike fish oil, the omega-3 fatty acids in Krill oil are absorbed and carried to the body’s cells in phospholipid form. Omega-3 fatty acids, in combination with diet and exercise, work by lowering the body’s production of “bad”, low density lipoprotein (LDL) and triglycerides, and may raise high density lipoprotein (HDL) “good” cholesterol. High levels of cholesterol and triglycerides can lead to coronary artery disease, heart disease, and stroke.
Supportive, but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.*
ANTI AGING, SKIN, IMMUNE HEALTH & ANTIOXIDANTS
Krill oil contains powerful antioxidants. Antioxidants inhibit oxidation and may neutralize the oxidant effect of free radicals and other substances in body tissues that may lead to disease.*
Numerous antioxidant tests have proven that Krill oil effectively repairs aging cells when compared to other antioxidants. Since krill oil is also high in the well absorbed omega-3 fatty acid compound DHA, it has been shown to boost activity of a white blood cell called a B cell, a vital part of the body’s immune response. And because of the particular way the DHA-rich fish oil works, the researchers noted the finding could have special applications for people with compromised immune systems.*
Included in krill oil is a carotenoid antioxidant called Astaxanthin, one of the most potent antioxidants available. It has been widely studied and is beneficial in may different ways. Has shown to work as an internal sunscreen of sorts since it reduces inflammation and helps reduce UVA damage to skin cells.
Astaxanthin is 6000 times more powerful than Vitamin C, giving it tremendous ability to reduce free radicals. It is able to cross the blood/brain barrier and the blood/retina barrier so that it can benefit the brain and eyes (many antioxidants do not have this ability.
Supports brain, heart, skin (anti-aging), joint and eye health. Bioavailable Omega-3’s, potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidants.
