Omega-3 fatty acids

Essential fatty acids (EFAs) include both omega-3 fats (high in the vital compounds DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid)) and omega-6 fats. EFAs cannot be manufactured by the body, but are beneficial for overall health and, more specifically, heart health, immune function, mood support and metabolism. Therefore, they must be obtained from our diet.

 

In a perfect world, we would all be able to get enough EFAs from the fresh fish we eat. Unfortunately, as a result of environmental pollution and poor eating habits, this is now no longer a reality. Studies show that eating fish can potentially expose you to a high degree of contamination with industrial pollutants and toxins like mercury, PCBs, heavy metals and radioactive poisons.


Our Antarctic Krill Oil is of the highest grade and is sustainably-sourced from fisheries in the Antarctic through Aker BioMarine™, who work with World Wildlife Foundation Norway.

 This unique supplement contains important omega-3 fatty acids (DHA and EPA), “good” fats that are required for a healthy body and mind.

 It also contains the powerful antioxidant, astaxanthin. Antioxidants protect our cells from damage by harmful free radicals - unstable substances that are thought to contribute to certain chronic diseases. Unlike many other antioxidants, astaxanthin crosses the blood-brain barrier, where it can protect the eye, brain and central nervous system from free radical damage.

 People use krill oil for the same reasons they use fish oil, flax oil or other omega-3 fatty acids. However, unlike fish oil, krill oil does not cause fishy burps or leave an after-taste, a common side effect of fish oil. Krill oil is also more easily absorbed by the body and contains higher amounts of astaxanthin than fish oil.

environmental pollution and poor eating habits, this is now no longer a reality. Studies show that eating fish can potentially expose you to a high degree of contamination with industrial pollutants and toxins like mercury, PCBs, heavy metals and radioactive poisons.

 Krill oil provides a unique means of supplying the body with both antioxidants and omega-3 oils simultaneously.

What’s more, it boasts a full complement of necessary antioxidants not seen in fish or cod liver oil.


 Scientific evidence to date has shown that the safest and most effective carriers of EPA and DHA are phospholipids. Standard fish oils (and inferior krill oil brands) lack this phospholipid complex.

 Phospholipids are important because they are the building blocks for cell membranes, regulating cellular transport by functioning as “gate-keepers”. In this role, they protect cell membranes from free radical attack. This unique relationship between the phospholipids and omega-3 fatty acids greatly facilitates the passage of the fatty acid molecules through the intestinal wall.


This is beneficial in two ways:

 • It makes the omega-3 fats in high grade krill oil significantly more bioavailable than those in fish oil, by allowing EPA and DHA to directly enter cells.

• It improves the omega-3 to omega-6 ratio. Although some omega-6 fats are good for health, the balance of omega-6s to omega-3s is crucial. Most people today consume an over-abundance of omega-6 fats.

 

Antioxidant power Antioxidants protect our bodies' cells from damage by free radicals - unstable substances that are thought to contribute to certain chronic diseases and the ageing process.

 Krill oil has an extraordinary oxygen radical absorbance (ORAC) capacity and the antioxidant properties are over 40 times more powerful than those of fish oil!

 The EPA part of the phospholipids in krill oil contains the antioxidant astaxanthin. The algae that krill eat produces the bright red pigment astaxanthin, which gives them and other crustaceans (such as lobsters and shrimp) their reddish-pink colour. Unlike many other antioxidants, astaxanthin crosses the blood-brain barrier, where it can protect the eye, brain and central nervous system from free radical damage. It can also protect your skin against the harmful effects of UV rays and the reduction of collagen, among other things.
