Krill Oil - The New Super Omega 3 ?
Krill is a small shrimp like creature found in the ocean's of the world. Superba Krill is farmed in the Antarctic waters and is said to be the purest , unpolluted krill in the world.
Antarctic krill oil - a perfect source of Omega-3
We all know the multi health benefits of omega fish oil but krill oil - SuperbaTM - is rich in a concentrated omega-3 format. Moreover, the omega-3 in krill oil is mainly in the omega-3 phospholipid form, which research suggests is a preferred and better health supplement when compared to omega-3 in triglyceride form (fish oil). Marine omega-3 in dietary supplements is mostly derived from fish, such as fish body oil and cod liver oil, which provide omega-3 in triglyceride form.
Omega-3 phospholipids from krill are a more bioefficient source of omega-3 than the omega-3 triglycerides derived from fish oil. They are said to be far superior in respect of delivery to the body.
The Four Top Health Benefits of Krill Oil
1. Joint & Bone Support
2. Cardiovascular Support
3. Brain & Memory
4. Powerful antioxidants
Krill Oil and maintaining bone and joint health
Nutritional factors are recognised as key to maintaining good bone, cartilage, and joint health through life. Omega-3 has been proposed as playing an important role in lessening the risk and severity of bone and joint disease and disorders.
Due to Krill oil omega having a better absorption rate into the body than fish oil omega Krill is seen as beneficial and ideal for joint health.
Krill Oil provides cardiovascular health support
Omega 3 is now seen as a key health supplement for cardiovascular health
and reducing high cholesterol risk and so is widely recommended by many health experts.
Krill Oil provides omega-3 in phospholipid form, mainly as phosphatidylcholine. Omega-3 availability is increased when delivered by phospholipids compared with other sources, due to more efficient absorption of omega-3 phospholipids in the small intestine.
It is proposed that Krill Oil is therefore a superior source of omega-3 for cardiovascular health and reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease the biggest killer in the western world.
Studies suggested that Krill Oil can reduced LDL (bad) cholesterol & raise HDL (good) cholesterol by up to 44%.
Krill Oil and maintaining brain & memory health
Krill Oil intake is said to be important in maintaining memory and cognitive functions. Krill Omega delivered in the phospholipid form has been indicated to be superior in transporting into the brain, compared with omega-3 delivered in triglyceride form (fish oil).
This evidence states that Krill Oil has health benefits associated with brain function and structure.
Good levels of consumption of omega-3 is recommended by many health experts to maintain memory performance and reduce the risk of developing severe dementia in later life.
As Krill Oil is suggested as been the perfect omega it can be seen as an excellent brain & memory supplement.
Krill Oil - Powerful Antioxidant - Astaxanthin
Antioxidants are now seen as important for heath. Found in foods like fruit & veg
they are suggested to fight free radical damage which are oxygen molecules that can contribute to poor health and a weakened immune system.
Astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant found in Krill and so for this reason Krill also offers effective antioxidant support on top of the many other benefits of omega 3.
Astaxanthin is said to be up to 300 times more powerful than the respected antioxidant vitamins A & E. Astaxanthin is also seen as beneficial for skin health.
