Antarctic Krill Oil (500mg) 60 fish gelatin capsules

About Krill

Krill oil is derived from small (1 - 5 cm) shrimp-like marine crustaceans found in oceans around the world, but they are most prevalent 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.

Krill oil has become the supplement to try following a great deal of media attention recently.

Antarctic Krill Oil is sourced exclusively from sustainable fisheries in the Antarctic, through Aker BioMarine™ who work with World Wildlife Foundation Norway to ensure sustainable krill harvesting.


Why Choose Krill Oil?

Also known as Euphausia superba, krill oil is a pure and natural source of Omega 3 oil, which also contains the powerful antioxidant, astaxanthin. Krill oil also provides high levels of phospholipids - a fundamental component of human cell membranes.

Krill oil vs fish oil

Antioxidants work within the body to neutralise 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, flax 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.

Can be combined with our other antioxidants and food form supplements such as our Acai Berry Capsules, organic MAXvits SupperFoods and Organic GreenNourish Complete.
