High in health promoting Omega-3 fatty acids and easily absorbed by the body, Krill Oil proves that not all Omega-3s are created equally.
Nu-Health Krill Oil is derived from Antarctic krill, tiny crustaceans that are highly abundant in the glacial waters of the Antarctic. For years, the benefits of fish oil supplements have been have been widely studied but more recently the wide ranging health benefits of krill oil have begun to be more thoroughly understood.
Krill Oil contains powerful antioxidants, including Astaxanthin, as well as Omega-3 fatty acids that help support heart and joint health. The Omega-3 fatty acids Eicosapentaenoic Acid and Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA and EPA) found in krill oil are provided in phospholipid form and studies suggest that this gives krill oil a significantly higher bioavailability than fish oil. Essentially, the body is able to utilize the health benefits of Omega-3 oils more quickly and efficiently.
Since phospholipids are soluble in water, this allows krill oil to more easily disperse and as a result, eliminates the fishy burp taste that is oftentimes associated with fish oil products. Taking two small softgels a day with a balanced diet supplies the body with nutrients that can help optimize healthy functioning.
