Krill are small shrimp-like creatures that are abundant in the waters of the Arctic regions. They are the primary food source for the great whales, seals, penguins, sea birds, squid and fish. An adult whale eats up to 8,000 pounds of Krill each day during feeding season.
Krill are one of the most easily renewable food resources available and are an excellent nutritional source from an environmental perspective.
Krill have been harvested as a food source for humans and domesticated animals since the 1800s. 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.
Our Krill Oil is very stable, free of heavy metal content and works more efficiently in the body than regular fish oil capsules. Our double strength Krill Oil is cold pressed and delivers a super potent 1000 milligrams of purified Krill Oil in every easy to absorb two-gelcap dose.60 paps per bottle.
Essential fatty acids (EFAs) include both Omega-3 fats (high in the vital compounds EPA and DHA) and Omega-6 fats. EFAs are called essential because your body cannot make them and therefore, EFAs must be obtained through your diet.
Although some Omega-6 fats are good for your health, it is the balance of Omega-6s to Omega-3s that is crucial. Unfortunately, most people consume an overabundance of Omega-6 fats.
Americans consume a dangerously insufficient amount of Omega-3 fatty acid, meanwhile, our intake of Omega-6, another fat found in corn, soy, sunflower and other oils, is far too high. The ideal ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 should be 1:1, but the typical American's ratio ranges from 20:1 to 50:1!
Because of this imbalanced ratio, you can greatly benefit from the intake of more Omega-3 fats.
Besides DHA and EPA, our Double Strength Krill Oil has another significant difference from fish oil, which explains why natural health practitioners and medical professionals are so excited about Krill.
Unlike fish oils, Krill Oil delivers the desirable Omega-3s in the form of phospholipids. Why are phospholipids important? Because they make our double strength Krill Oil significantly more absorbable, far above those in fish oil, by allowing EPA and DHA to directly enter your cells.
