First off you maybe asking what is krill? Krill is a spineless, shrimp-like marine organism. The oil produced from krill, in particular from Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba), is rich in various compounds, including long-chain omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants, which likely contribute to krill oil’s beneficial health effects. Also an estimated 14% of krill oil is comprised of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). EPA and DHA are both omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are a class of compounds believed to have beneficial blood lipid- and blood pressure-lowering effects. Krill oil is also believed to contain astaxanthin. Astaxanthin is an antioxidant with purported neuroprotective effects. Early research suggests that krill oil may be useful in the treatment of arthritis, high blood lipids, dental plaque, and painful menstruation. However, further research in these areas is needed before any firm conclusions may be made for its use. You should read product labels, and discuss all therapies with a qualified healthcare provider. Natural Standard information does not constitute medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.
Well after all that information it sounds great but, there maybe one more question you are asking……Is Krill Oil safe?. Krill Oil has been determined to be safe for most people. Everyone, especially those allergic to shellfish, nursing or pregnant should consult a physician before taking it or any other vitamins, minerals, supplements or medication.
Everest Nutrition’s Krill Oil provides you with 50% more Omega-3’s per dosage than competing fish oils!
What’s the BIG difference between fish oil supplements and krill oil supplements? The Omega-3 fatty acids in Everest Nutrition’s Krill Oil are structured in phospholipid form. Phospholipids are also fats that can be found in your body, making Omega-3’s easy to break down and put to work on your health!
Competing fish oil brands store their Omega-3’s in Triglyceride form, making them difficult for our bodies to break down and convert – rendering them nearly useless!
And Another Thing…
There is an incredibly powerful antioxidant found in Krill Oil known as Astaxanthin. Astaxanthin, quite easy to spot as it is a carotenoid that makes itself known in the pink color found in shrimp, salmon and krill. Astaxanthin, however, is known to be the strongest antioxidant in the caretonoid family, easily battling away and quenching free radicals as they try to attack cellular health.
Each caplique contains more antioxidant power than Vitamin A, Lutein, Vitamin E, Lycopene and many more! In fact, astaxanthin is one of the few nutrients that has the rare ability to cross the blood-brain barrier and deliver essential nutrients throughout the body– astaxanthin also fights off free radicals that lead to cell damage! Everest Nutrition Krill Oil has an ORAC value of 431 which makes it 54x times more powerful as an antioxidant compared to fish oil and other nutrients!
Let’s face it…in head-to-head competition, Krill Oil benefits far surpasses the benefits of ordinary fish oil!
