Krill oil comes from krill - tiny shrimp-like creatures that live in very cold ocean waters.
Krill oil contains two types of omega-3 fatty acid: Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
Krill oil also contains Astaxanthin, as well as Phospholipids.
Astaxanthin is a pigment that belongs to a group of chemicals called Carotenoids. It occurs naturally in certain algae and causes the pink/red colour of krill.
Antarctic Krill Oil (Euphausia Superba) is a natural source of high concentration omega 3 oil, the powerful antioxidant astaxanthin, as well as high levels of Phospholipids - a fundamental component of human cell membranes. It contains two types of Omega 3 fatty acid: Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA).
Krill oil is used for the same reasons as cod liver oil, flax oil and other omega 3 fatty acids, but is often favoured because it does not cause fishy burps or an after-taste - a common side effect of fish oil.
The fact that it contains astaxanthin is also unique. The ultimate antioxidant - researchers have found that it may be more powerful than vitamin E, beta-carotene and lutein. It can also enhance the action of other antioxidants, such as vitamin E and C.
Our krill oil is a high-strength formula (500 mg), provided in an easy-to-swallow marine gel capsule form. It is sourced exclusively from sustainable fisheries in the Antarctic, through our partners Aker BioMarine™ who work with World Wildlife Foundation Norway to ensure sustainable krill harvesting.
