Nutricost brings you a high quality and affordable Krill Oil supplement, designed to deliver potent omega-3’s and antioxidants. With 1000 mg per serving, each softgel provides Phospholipids, Omega-3 fatty acids, EPA, DHA, and Astaxanthin. Why take krill oil over fish oil competitors? Fish oil is weaker in antioxidant content, potentially contaminated from toxins, and susceptible to spoilage and oxidation.
Unlike fish oil, krill oil carries omega-3’s in the form of phospholipids – a lipid compound that delivers the fatty acids directly to cells. These phospholipids are imperative because they provide the building blocks for cell membranes, regulate cellular transport, and help protect cell membranes from free radicals. Phospholipids also greatly facilitate the passage of the fatty acid molecules through the intestinal wall making them more bioavailable, allows EPA and DHA to directly enter cells, and improves the omega-3 to omega-6 ratio.
Astaxanthin is also an incredibly important component of krill oil, because unlike in fish oil, it protects the omega-3 fats along every stage of harvesting and processing to keep it from oxidizing. Astaxanthin (a carotenoid antioxidant) is produced by microalgae when water supply dries up, forcing it to protect itself from ultraviolet radiation by acting as a “force field” to protect from lack of nutrition or intense sunlight. This is the same mechanism that protects krill oil from oxidizing, which is critical since once a product oxidizes it becomes rancid, and may do more harm than good.
Both Omega-3’s and Astaxanthin have a huge impact on the immune system, and potentially can reduce overall inflammation.* Astaxanthin has been shown to modulate immune response, inhibit cancer cell growth, reduce gastric inflammation, and protect against oxidative stress. Dietary omega-3 fatty acids have a variety of anti-inflammatory and immune-modulating effects as well, and the particular fatty acids that appear to be most potent are the long-chain polyunsaturates derived from marine oils, namely eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
* RESULTS MAY VARY
Nutricost has developed a quality and affordable Krill Oil supplement, rich in omega-3’s, EPA, DHA, and antioxidants.
As a dietary supplement, take 2 softgels 1 to 3 times daily with food.
This product is only intended to be consumed be healthy individuals 18 years of age or older. Consult your physician prior to use if you are pregnant or nursing. Do not exceed recommended use. Improper use will not improve results and is not advised. Keep out of reach of children. Store in a cool dry place. Do not use if safety seal is broken.
Eicosapentaenoic acid – Eicosapentaenoic acid, or EPA, is an omega 3 essential fatty acid found in cold-water fish, and may help modulate behavior and mood.
Docosahexaenoic acid – Docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA, is another omega 3 essential fatty acid, and may help in the pre- and post-natal health of both mother and child, particularly in brain development and overall immunity.
Astaxanthin – Astaxanthin is a carotenoid antioxidant produced by microalgae, and exhibits strong free radical scavenging activity and helps protect cells, organs and body tissues from oxidative damage and inflammation.
Q. What’s The Difference Between Fish Oil And Krill Oil?
A. Krill Oil is less likely to oxidize and become rancid, due to the high level of Astaxanthin it contains. Astaxanthin is also a powerful antioxidant, which fish oil is void of.
Q. When Should I Take Krill Oil?
A. You can take Nutricost’s Krill Oil up to 3 times daily, however it is best to take with a meal.
Q. I Have A Shellfish Allergy, Can I Still Take Krill Oil?
A. If you are allergic to shellfish, there is a good chance you may also have an allergic reaction to Krill Oil.
Q. How Long Should It Take To See Benefits?
A. Improvements from consuming krill oil are often noticed in a short period of time, but can take up to a month to notice full spectrum of effects.
