Antarctic Krill Oil
60 marine gelatine capsules (500mg): Take 1 - 3 capsules per day with food or as advised by your health practitioner.
Also known as Euphausia superba, krill oil is a pure and natural source of Omega 3 oil, which also contains the powerful antioxidant, astaxanthin, and provides high levels of phospholipids - a fundamental component of human cell membranes.
Antioxidants work within the body to help protect against the harmful effects of free-radicals and it is therefore the presence of astaxanthin that sets krill oil apart from traditional fish oils.
People tend to use krill oil for the same reasons that they use fish oil, flaxseed oil or other omega 3 fatty acids. However, unlike fish oil, krill oil doesn't cause fishy burps or an after-taste, a common side effect of fish oil.
Our high grade Antarctic krill oil is sourced exclusively from sustainable fisheries in the Antarctic, through our partners Aker BioMarine™ who work with World Wildlife Foundation Norway to ensure sustainable krill harvesting.
More about krill oil...
Krill oil is derived from small shrimp-like marine crustaceans found in oceans around the world, but they are most common in cold-water oceans, such as the Antarctic and North Pacific. There are 18 species and an estimated 500 - 750 million tonnes of krill worldwide. This makes them the most significant biomass of animals in the world! They are a staple food for fish, whales, sharks, seals, penguins and other sea birds.
Krill eat phytoplankton (microscopic plant life). Unlike many fish, one of the key benefits of krill is that they are low enough on the food chain so that they do not pose a threat of containing mercury.
