is a highly absorbable source of omega-3s
Krill oil is a rich source of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. It is extracted from an Antarctic krill specie called Euphausia superba.
which our heart, brain,
eyes and liver are dependent on.
Oil, omega-3 fatty acids are bound to phospholipid
TYPE OF FAT
Krill oil is rich source of omega-3 fatty acids of which the most important ones are EPA- and DHA. It also contains super antioxidant astaxanthine and necessary nutrient called choline.
We use Superba Boost krill oil, which is from an Antarctic krill specie called Euphausia Superba. Krill we use is harvested sustainably from the pure Southern Ocean with
and by the MSC Certification standards.
WHY KRILL OIL?
It is a pure source of Omega-3. We know that the krill oil we use is 100% pure & natural source of omega-3s. Besides that, we love that we know exactly where our krill comes from.
Krill oil's fatty acids are phospholipids - in fish oil these same fatty acids are in the form of triglycerides. Phospholipids are said to absorb better than triglycerides.
Smaller capsules - thanks to the phospholipid formed fatty acids.
It contains choline which is an essential nutrient for proper function of the nervous system, muscles and eyes. It also contains astaxanthin, krill oil’s own antioxidant which also gives to it beautiful reddish color. It’s works as a natural preservative protecting fatty acids form oxidation.
No fishy burps! Unlike fish oil, krill oil’s phospholipid formed fatty acids are easily mixed with stomach fluids and they do not cause any fishy burps, produce reflux or cause stomach ache.
KRILL OIL VS. FISH OIL
Both are rich in omega-3s but krill oil is said to absorb better than fish oil. Besides that it doesn't cause fishy aftertaste because of phospholipid formed fatty acids.
Krill oil also contains antioxidant astaxhantin which fish oils usually doesn't contain - no need for added preservatives. Krill is also free from mercury and pollutants because it is at the beginning of the food chain.
Krill oil is also more sustainable omega-3 source than fish and harvesting of krill is regulated in order to avoid overfishing.
OMEGA-3 RICH FOODS
