The importance of Omega 3
Omega 3 fatty acids play an important role in a healthy diet and have been linked to many health inducing benefits, such as improved cardiovascular, skin and joint health, better brain and central nervous system development and enhanced cognitive functioning.
Studies have demonstrated the beneficial properties of increased blood levels of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. Given the human body’s limited ability to synthesize EPA and DHA the bioavailability of omega-3 is of great importance.Recent studies have suggested that not all omega-3s are equal. There are two primary sources of EPA and DHA: fish oil, which provides triglyceride omega-3s; and krill oil, which provides phospholipid omega-3s. Krill oil is extremely well tolerated, is certified sustainable, and its phospholipid omega-3s are more efficiently utilized by the body.
100% Pure Krill Oil - More Bioavailability, less aftertaste -
Omega-3 Phospholipids and Natural Antioxidants
Good for brain, heart and joint health
Two 500 mg Ocean Krill capsules of pure krill oil extracted from Euphasia superba contain:
Phospholipids 400 mg
Omega-3 fatty acids 220 mg
EPA 120 mg
DHA 56 mg
Other Omega-3 fatty acids 44 mg
Astaxanthin (esterified) 80 μg
A unique composition
Ocean Krill provides an optimum blend of omega-3 fatty acids. Krill oil is rich in phospholipid EPA and DHA, providing clinically proven superior bioefficiency. Phospholipid-bound omega-3 fatty acids are water-dispersible, making them gentler on the stomach and more readily absorbed by the body. And with phospholipid omega-3s, less is more: smaller capsules are easier to swallow and easier to digest (no more fishy burps!).
Rich in natural antioxidants
Antarctic krill is also rich in the natural antioxidant astaxanthin, the component that gives the capsules their deep red colour. Recognized for the health-promoting suppression of free radicals, astaxanthin protects the omega-3 fatty acids and keeps Ocean Krill fresh. No additives are necessary to ensure the krill oil’s long-term stability.
