The oil from these little underwater creatures boast a source of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) which are types of potent Omega-3 Fats found solely in marine sources. They perform extreme important functions in our bodies and are rightfully linked to a variety of health-improving properties. In addition, Antarctic Krill Oil contains Astaxanthin, which is one of our planet’s most powerful antioxidants!

Ancient Purity proudly presents clean, sustainable and effective Krill Oil Softgels. Krill Oil is a stand apart as it is an all-natural product rich in clean Omega-3s (EPA and DHA). Fish oil can’t even begin to compare with Krill Oil from the pristine Antarctic Waters. Fish Oil is often contaminated with mercury and other toxic heavy metals. Plus, because it is low in antioxidants, fish oil is highly susceptible to spoilage and can go rancid quickly. As said before, clean Krill Oil features unique antioxidants to essential Omega-3 Fats like DHA and EPA that slip across your body’s and brain’s cell membranes health-supporting phospholipids. Using Krill Oil as a simple 1-2 daily supplement can be life changing in natural health, why not find out and see what it could do for you? Especially for those people not consuming 8 weekly ounces of fresh seafood, it might be a very good idea to take Ancient Purity’s superior quality Antarctic Krill Oil Softgels.

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, crab, and scallops. Much of the commercial fish farming industry unfortunately no longer use this natural carotenoid. Instead they use synthetic astaxanthin added to fish food to improve the (fresh) red colour of the fish. Krill is a Norwegian word which means ‘whale food’. Now let's explain what it is that’s so interesting about Krill Oil, in terms of Health and Well-Being.

Components Present in Krill Oil

Phospholipids & Omega-3... Krill Omega-3 Fatty Acids are bound to phospholipids (Phospholipids help by preventing the accumulation of fats in the liver. It plays a major role in the transportation and removal of cholesterol from the cells) It forms the structural components of the cell membrane with the association of proteins 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 (Alternatively referred to as marine lecithin) 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... 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.

Krill Oil - Superior to typical Fish Oil

Since the launch of Ancient Purity (back in 2011/12) we have looked at many types of Fish Oil and numerous other Animal Omega Supplements. We came to the conclusion that Krill Oil is the most effective one to take. I personally consume Krill Oil and I know people that I highly-respect like, Dr Mercola, taking Krill Oil as well. It's trusted, it gets results and if you are vegan, you can use our Vegan Omega Supplement A Vegan Omega DHA EPAs. Oil from the Marine Alga Schizochytrium, fully absorbable with natural pineapple flavouring. 

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 far away 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 often leads to side effects of fishy aftertaste, reflux or belching of fish flavours, this doesn’t occur with Krill Oil. Both Krill Oil and fish oil are not suitable for those with a shellfish or seafood allergy. Anyone with a blood coagulation disorder or taking blood thinners should also avoid Krill or fish oil.

Our Krill Oil Suppliers Commitment

Krill Oil is mostly used for the same aims as fish oil: to fight inflammation and to improve heart health. Compared to fish oil, premier quality Krill Oil contains higher amounts of astaxanthin, which is a carotenoid pigment providing Antarctic Krill and many other crustaceans their vibrant red-pink colour.

Krill Oil & Ocean Sustainability

Krill are small crustaceans of the order Euphausia 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. Therefore 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 Oil 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.

Pollution-Free... The tiny Krill Fish 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.

Stability... 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 to refrigerate.)

Krill Oil… Closing Thoughts

Krill Oil comes from a small, shrimp-like creature. Whale sharks, baleen whales and mantas eat primarily krill. In Norwegian Language, "Krill" means "Whale Food." This oil is good source of Omega-3 Fatty Acids. A small Scandinavian research found that Krill Oil supplements increase levels of DHA and EPA more effectively as fish oil supplements. And Krill Oil has been revealed reduce blood fats in laboratory animals. However, research and more evidence in support of krill oil are continuing. Scientists are convinced that Krill Oil has several advantages over fish oil. Because Krill are at the food chain’s bottom and the ocean’s bottom, they aren’t likely to contain heavy metals such as mercury which may have a negative effect on the nervous system of young kids and unborn babies. Krill Oil contains about the same quantity of DHA as oily fish, but it contains much more EPA.

Krill Oil is mostly used for the same aims as fish oil: to fight inflammation and to improve heart health. Compared to fish oil, premier quality Krill Oil contains higher amounts of astaxanthin, which is a carotenoid pigment providing Antarctic Krill and many other crustaceans their vibrant red-pink colour. Unlike numerous other antioxidant components, preliminary scientific research has found that this particular carotenoid pigment may cross the blood-brain barrier and helps the central nervous system and the brain from free radical damage.
