Krill Oil

Clean / Safe (Sustainably Sourced) Omega 3 EPA/DHA
60 x 500mg (Softgels)

Krill Oil is sourced from Antarctic krill (Euphausiasuperba) a small, shrimp-like crustacean that exists in large swarms. It attains an individual maximum size of 2 inches and feeds mainly on phytoplankton or sea ice algae, it contains a host of nutrients, Vitamin E, Canthaxanthin, Omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA.

Krill is the staple food of many mammals, fish and seabirds in the Southern Oceans.

Krill oil is a natural source of the red carotenoid astaxanthin, which is derived from the micro-algae food source of the Antarctic krill.

Astaxanthin is responsible for the red colour of krill and other crustaceans such as lobster, shrimp and salmon. Much of the commercial fish farming industry no longer use this natural carotenoid, with synthetic astaxanthin added to fish feed to improve the colour of the fish instead.

Attributes of Krill Oil

Phospholipids & Omega-3
Krill Omega-3 fatty acids are bound to phospholipids where it is considered that they are more efficiently absorbed via the small intestines with the phospholipid complex readily absorbed into the cell membranes. Other sources of Omega-3 fatty acids are bound to triglycerides, which are insoluble and require bile salts for their emulsification and absorption via the lymphatic system.
A study of the metabolic effects of krill and fish oil found comparable dietary sources of Omega-3 fatty acids when assessing plasma concentrations. Despite the lower levels of EPA and DHA in krill, researchers found no statistical significance in levels with their findings, indicating an increased bio-availability of krill to that of fish oil.

Phosphatidyl Choline
Krill phospholipids contain choline, an essential nutrient, and neurotransmitter precursor important to brain and muscle tissue. Phosphatidylcholine participates in fatty acid transport in the blood and across membranes. Choline intake is important, starting in early life during foetal development and continuing where a deficiency of choline is linked to areas of dysfunction, including elevated homocysteine, memory, growth and hepatic disorders. Dietary intake of Choline may be low in many people. Major food sources are liver, eggs and wheat germ.

Astaxanthin is a carotenoid molecule with powerful antioxidant activity found in krill oil. It is profoundly protective to the endothelium of all blood vessels and also to the tissue of the retina. Researchers have identified a number of other health benefits from the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of astaxanthin.

Superior to typical Fish Oil

why choose krill oil over fish oil

You can take 1/5 the dose – two small capsules rather than 10 large ones. The phospholipid binding increases the bioavailability of the omega-3s, improves the omega-3 to omega-6 ratio and supports healthy cell membrane functioning.

Krill are at the bottom of the food chain and collected far from pollution in the pristine seas surrounding Antarctica. So you don't have to worry about unsafe accumulations of mercury, PCBs, heavy metals or other toxins that low-quality fish oil products may contain.

Fish oil consumption commonly leads to side effects of fishy aftertaste, reflux or belching of fish flavours, this has not occurred with Krill Oil. 

Please note that Krill Oil and fish oil are not suitable for people with a shellfish or seafood allergy. Anyone with a blood coagulation disorder or taking blood thinners should also avoid Krill and Fish Oil.

Krill Ocean Sustainability

Krill are small crustaceans of the order Euphausiacea and are found in all the world's oceans. There is an open debate about the environmental sustainability of Krill, we see some real positives with its harvesting. However it needs attention and for you to make your own choice, we must all vote with our money. The fact is Ancient Purity believes this to be a superior Omega 3 EPA/DHA product, clearly, some attention is needed to how and when it is harvested but there is no doubt to us on the powerful positive effects of Krill and there's no reason not to use it providing it's sensibly collected.

Our suppliers are committed to maintaining the sustainability of Krill within the strict guidelines of CCAMLR (The Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources).

Renewable Food Source /Sustainability: Krill represent a renewable, sustainable and environmentally positive nutrition source. They are the largest biomass in the ocean and there is simply no risk of causing them to perish from over-harvesting.

Krill are at the bottom of the food chain and collected far from pollution in the pristine seas surrounding Antarctica. So you don't have to worry about unsafe accumulations of mercury, PCBs, heavy metals or other toxins that low-quality fish oil products may contain.

Krill Oil is more stable and more resistant to rancidity than conventional fish oils. This means it will last longer. It will last for TWO years at room temperature. (There is no need refrigerate.)
