What is Krill Oil
- Supports cardiovascular and brain health.
- support the strength of cell membranes.
- joint and skin support.
- a natural source of astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant carotenoid.
- an extremely bioavailable source of omega-3 essential fatty acids EPA and DHA.
- support already-normal-range cholesterol levels.
Krill are shrimp-like crustaceans that are approximately 1 to 6 centimeters long. They live in the ocean, where they feed mainly on phytoplankton. They are near the bottom of the food chain and are eaten by whales, seals, penguins, squid and fish.NSP has added Vitamin K2 which works primarily outside of the liver in the bone and blood vessels. While K1 is preferentially used by the liver to activate blood clotting proteins, K2 is preferentially used by other tissues to deposit calcium in appropriate locations, such as in the bones and teeth, and prevent it from depositing in locations where it does not belong, such as the soft tissues.(Spronk et al., 2003, pp. 531-537)
Omega 3s supports cardiovascular and brain health, provide joint and skin support and may help support cholesterol levels already within the normal range. Krill is a natural source of astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant carotenoid. Vitamin K2 is added to provide added support for the cardiovascular system and bone health.
Krill oil naturally contains phospholipids, which bind to the omega-3 fatty acids, improving their absorption in the body. These phospholipids provide strength and elasticity to the cell membrane, helping to keep toxins out and let nutrients and oxygen in.
