Krill Oil is a natural source of Omega 3 fatty acids and provides astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant
Krill oil is derived from Krill (Euphausia superba), small shrimp-like crustacea that reside in throughout the Antarctic regions of the world. Krill contain naturally rich levels of a special carotenoid antioxidant called astaxathin. This antioxidant gives Krill their unique pink or red colour. Krill swarms or masses are renowned for turning the ocean 'pink' due to their vast numbers.
Astaxanthin belongs to a group of antioxidants called carotenoids. These compounds help support heart health, brain health and eye health and protect cells against the harmful effects of free radicals.
The body need fats to perform many functions, in fact, every cell in the human body is made up of a special double layer of fatty acids called phospholipids. Omega 3 fatty acids are essential for health, as the body cannot produce them, and so they must be supplied in the diet each day. Two types of Omega 3 fatty acids are called EPA and DHA. Studies shown these two fatty acids are needed for maintaining brain health, vision, heart function and circulation and support supple joints.
Krill Oil contains Omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA in a special form. They are attached to a phospholipid compound, a type of fat that surrounds every cell in the body. Phospholipids are highly absorbable and help make Krill Oil Omega 3 fatty acids easier to absorb.
