Fish oil supplements have been top-selling items in health food stores for many years. The list of benefits from fish oil continues to grow when results of new studies and research confirm the positive effects of this natural product in the human body.
So, if fish oil supplements are good for you, how if a similar product can provide even more benefits?
Krill oil is extracted from Antarctic krill Euphausia superba. Krill oil contains the three most important elements the human body needs to function properly: phospholipids, omega-3 essential fatty acids (similar to those of fish oil), and astaxanthin , a very powerful antioxidant.
This marine oil is clinically proven to do more than what fish oil can. Unlike fish oil (which is only 61-65% bioavailable), it mimics the very membranes of your cells, thus penetrating so easily that you get 95-98% of what you pay for. In addition, a super-antioxidant found only in krill oil is an ultra-potent nutrient, stronger than most other antioxidants including Co-Q10, for protection from the free radical damage that promotes aging and disease.
Just like fish oil, Krill Oil can lower cholesterol as well. Omega-3s have been shown to play a key role in heart health, from reducing triglycerides and blood pressure to inhibiting inflammation.
Krill oil contains significant amounts of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA , and it may help to regulate both HDL and LDL cholesterol. Additionally, it can support arthritic joint pain and the physical and emotional symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS).
