What is Krill Oil?
Krill are a type of shrimp-like marine invertebrates and are a common food source of baleen whales, manta rays, whale sharks and numerous other marine animals. The oil derived from Krill is rich in phospholipids, the building blocks for cell membranes, and Essential Fatty Acids including Omega-3, 6 and 9. Krill Oil is very stable, free of heavy metal content and considered more efficient in the body than regular fish oil capsules. Supplement Spot's Krill Oil delivers a potent 1,000 milligrams of purified Krill Oil per serving in every easy to absorb soft gelatin capsule.
Why Krill Oil?
Besides being a great source of essential fatty acids, krill oil is becoming popular because it contains Astaxanthin. Astaxanthin crosses the blood-brain barrier, where it could theoretically protect the eye, brain and central nervous system from free radical damage.* The ORAC factor in krill oil can be up to 48 times higher than basic fish oil.
Also, the phospholipid structure of the EPA and DHA in krill oil makes them much more absorbable and allows for a much easier entrance into the mitochondria and the cellular nucleus. In addition to EPA and DHA krill oil contains a complex phospholipid profile including phosphatidylcholine, a potent source of reductive-stress-reducing choline, which also acts as a natural emulsifier.
