|Previous||6 / 14||Next|
Krill are prawn-like creatures that are approximately 1 to 6 centimeters long. They live in oceans off the West coast of Vancouver Island, Russia, Ukraine and Japan, feeding mainly on plankton, which are the actual Omega 3 factories. Krill are near the bottom of the food chain and are eaten by whales, seals, penguins, squids and fishes.
The Antarctic Krill are able to survive the coldest water in the world due to their high content of long chain omega-3 fatty acids. The pristine Antarctic environment provides a pure combination of omega fatty acids, phospholipids, antioxidants, vitamins, and a novel bioflavonoid (found for the first time in the animal kingdom). This synergistic blend contributes to the uniqueness of this valuable natural oil known as Krill Oil. Special properties include the absence of regurgitation, increase of bioavailability, and the ability of phospholipids bound to Astaxanthin to penetrate the blood-brain barrier.

Comparison Between Krill Oil and Fish Oil
Why Krill Oil is better than fish oil?
- Krill Oil contains 40% phospholipids, but fish oil doesn’t have phospholipids. Phospholipids are building blocks for cell membranes and regulate cellular transport by functioning as “gate-keeper”. The most predominant phospholipid in Krill Oil is phosphatidylcholine (PC), which is partially composed of choline. Choline is important for brain development, learning and memory. PC increases solubility of cholesterol, thus lowering cholesterol levels. PC also protects our liver.
- Krill Oil’s Omega 3 like EPA and DHA are in the form of phospholipids contrary to fish oils where the fatty acids are in triglyceride form. This makes the Omega-3 in the Krill Oil significantly more bioavailable than fish oils because it allows the direct entrance of EPA and DHA into the cells. DHA is important for brain development and functions. Omega 3 can reduce the risk of heart disease.
- Krill oil contains powerful antioxidants. Antioxidant capacity of Krill Oil is 300 times greater than either Vitamin A or Vitamin E, 34 times greater than Co Q-10 and 48 times higher than fish oil.
Is Krill Oil safe?
Krill are at the bottom of the food chain and feed on planktons. Krill are collected from the pristine seas free from pollution and heavy metals. This makes Krill Oil free from heavy metals, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), dioxins and pesticides.
