Our Krill oil is the easiest and most convenient way to reap the benefits of Omega-3’s without the nasty burps, stomach issues, and embarrassing fish breath that gets in the way of your social life.
Sourced from the pristine waters of Antarctica, where potential toxins and contamination are less likely, our Krill oil offers a sustainable source of high quality Omega-3’s along with the powerful antioxidant Astaxanthin.
What makes our Krill so unique is the fact that our Omega-3’s are in phospholipid form, which are more readily transported into your brain and easier for your small intestines to absorb.
What exactly are Omega-3’s and what do Omega-3’s do?
Omega-3’s are essential fatty acids, meaning that your body can’t produce them on your own and you must get them from your diet. The two most beneficial forms are Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA).
Studies have shown that diets rich in Omega-3’s help reduce inflammation, increase your beneficial HDL and reduce harmful triglycerides, delay the rate of brain aging and atrophy, and slow the rate of attrition of telomeres, a well-known marker for aging. On top of that, The Journal of Clinical Lipidology lists Omega-3’s as one of the main dietary factors for preventable early mortality.
What is Astaxanthin?
Astaxanthin, a carotenoid that gives krill it’s orange color, is a powerful antioxidant that prevents the oxidation of DHA and EPA. In addition, it has been shown to improve blood flow and lower oxidative stress. In one study on mice, it showed that astaxanthin may improve the body’s use of fatty acids and reduce exercise-induced fatigue

Omega-3’s help reduce inflammation which can cause tissue damage, increases the “good” cholesterol HDL, lowers triglycerides, improves cell membrane fluidity, helps with brain aging and atrophy, and slows the rate of attrition of telomeres, a well-known marker for aging.
Antarctic Krill, Euphausia superba, are tiny crustaceans found in the Antarctic Ocean and are known for their omega-3 fatty acids. They make up an estimated biomass of around 379 million tonnes, more than the biomass global population of humans, and are viewed as a one of the most sustainable forms of fishing.
The Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) manages the krill fisheries and has set a limit of a sustainable harvest at 5.6 million tonnes annually.
However, the CCAMLR has a set “trigger” level of 620,000 tonnes that represents approximately 1% of the estimated 60 million tonnes of krill in this region.
Current krill fishing is far below the limit, around 200,000 tonnes and about .02 percent of the total biomass, less than half of the trigger level.
Because of the abundance of Krill, and the tight management of fisheries, Krill is viewed as a more sustainable resource than fish oil.
Animal sources like Krill and Fish are high in DHA and EPA. The short lifespans of krill lessen the potential for mercury contamination, PCBs, and other toxins, unlike the longer lifespans of fish which increases the risk of contamination.
Foods like flax, pumpkin seeds, and walnuts contain the omega-3 in the less desirable form of ALA (alpha linolenic acid).
• Krill Oil omega-3’s have a greater bioavailability than fish oil because they are attached to phospholipids which makes it easier for the small intestines to absorb.
• Krill Oil’s variety of DHA is preferred by your brain.
• Krill Oil contains a unique antioxidant Astaxanthin, which is not found in fish oil.
• Krill Oil is sourced from the Southern Hemisphere, a pristine environment, ensuring less potential of toxins and contamination.
• Fish Oil is heavily processed via Molecular Distillation to remove pollutants like mercury and alters the composition into an ethyl ester form which are less bioavailable.
The recommended daily serving is 1-2 servings.
Great for recovery after a hard workout!!!!
Come back stronger!
