Why Choose Krill Oil?
They couldn’t have known it, but since cavemen began fishing, fish have been humans’ best source of Omega-3s. With time and experience comes knowledge, and in recent years innumerable products have been developed, aiming to give us the health-boosting benefits these essential fatty acids can provide. That said, many of us don’t know that the quality of what we’re consuming is often compromised. Sea dwelling fish species are frequently exposed to pollutants that must be removed, the process of which fundamentally changes Omega-3 enriched oil’s structure, rendering it less absorbable by the body.

In the pursuit of an alternative, researchers began to consider Krill Oil to be the Omega-3 supplement of the future. Going far from fishing channels and shipping routes in search of pristine waters, they realised that living in the deep Antarctic, combined with the Euphausia Superba krill’s naturally short lifespan, meant that they faced far less risk of being exposed to contaminants. Furthermore, forming the world’s largest collective animal mass, they are incredibly sustainable. These nutrient-filled crustaceans are also many other animals’ nature Omega-3 source (they themselves eat only plant matter). And what’s more, even when the actual Omega-3 dose is lower, Krill Oil has been shown to offer similar positive outcomes to fish oil, thanks to its high EPA and DHA content, such as supporting brain function and vision. By taking Antarctic Krill Oil as a dietary supplement, you can enjoy the same nutritional perks and more - only purer, more potent, and from one of the first steps in nature’s energy-passing process.
Omega-3 fatty acids, including eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), are essential to our bodies natural processes, even though we cannot produce them ourselves. In times past, the best way to gain access to these health-giving compounds was through eating fish. EPA and DHA together contribute to healthy blood triglyceride, a fat required in low amounts for energy, as well as healthy blood pressure. At the same time, DHA on its own contributes to the maintenance of healthy vision and brain function.* Links have also been established between Omega-3s and an improved response to an intense workout, as well as dealing with sugar-levels.

You can also find some unique factors in Antarctic Krill Oil, that you cannot find in fish oil. Choline is a water soluble nutrient that is a structural part of fat, and is related to vital B vitamins. Supplementing your diet with Choline has been suggested to improve cognitive function and lift mood, in addition to metabolising fat lipids and maintaining energy levels. An organic pigment responsible for the capsule’s red colour, as well as that in cooked seafood, Astaxanthin has powerful protective capabilities. It’s molecular shape allows it to fit inside cells and accumulate in the membranes, shielding internal Omega-3 against damaging oxidation. It’s also understood to aid your heart, skin and eyesight.
Taking Antarctic Krill Oil
The capsules are easy to take and will become an easy part of your day. With a full glass of water, take one capsule twice everyday before a meal. With any new supplement, we recommend trying for at least three months, and investing in longer-term use to get the most out of Antarctic Krill Oil.
With just one, natural ingredient encased in a softgel shell, Antarctic Krill Oil capsules are not known to have any side effects. However, please do not take if you have a crustacean allergy. If you’re pregnant, breastfeeding, or taking any medication, please consult a healthcare professional before use. They are not intended for use by anyone under the age of eighteen.
*The beneficial effect of EPA and DHA on the maintenance of normal blood pressure is obtained with a daily intake of 3 g, and on the maintenance of normal triglyceride levels with a daily intake of 2 g, of EPA and DHA. The beneficial effect of DHA on the maintenance of normal brain function and normal vision is obtained with a daily intake of 250 mg. Do not exceed a supplemental daily intake of 5 g of EPA and DHA combined.
