Product summary

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).

EPA and DHA contribute to the normal function of the heart (with a daily intake of 250 mg).
DHA and EPA contribute to the maintenance of normal blood pressure (with a daily intake of 3 g of EPA and DHA).*
DHA contributes to the maintenance of normal blood triglyceride levels (with a daily intake of 2 g of DHA and when taken in combination with EPA).*
DHA contributes to maintenance of normal brain function (with a daily intake of 250 mg of DHA).
DHA contributes to maintenance of normal vision (with a daily intake of 250mg of DHA).

*Users should not exceed a supplemental daily intake of 5g of EPA and DHA combined.

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. Itcontains 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.
