Derived from Antarctic krill (a shrimp-like creature inhabiting the cold waters of the Antarctic Ocean), Krill Oil Omega-3 is rich in omega-3 fatty acids which are among the most researched of all nutrients and are acclaimed for their heart-healthy properties. Krill Oil Omega-3 is different from other marine oils due to the high concentration of phospholipids attached to the omega 3 fatty acids which act as superior delivery systems of nutrients. In addition, it contains a powerful antioxidant known as astaxanthin, which imbues the oil with exceptional protection against oxidation and rancidity - a property that does not exist in most fish oils . One of krill oil’s most promising actions is its ability to improve inflammation and blood lipid levels. Recent research suggests that krill oil may be even more effective at improving cholesterol levels than fish oil.
