Antarctic Krill Oil high strenght formula 500mg (Euphausia superba) is a natural source of high concentration omega 3 oil, also within the capsule is the powerful antioxidant astaxanthin and high levels of phospholipids - a fundamental component of human cell membranes.
Krill oil is almost identical to fish oil however it is more bioavailable, more sustainable and less likely to contain mercury or heavy metals.
Research has found that Astaxanthin antioxidant may be more powerful than vitamin E, beta-carotene and lutein. It can also enhance the action of other antioxidants, such as vitamin E and C.
Unlike some fish oil capsules, with Antarctic krill oil there is no fishy after-taste! Provided in an easy-to-swallow marine gel capsule form, it is sourced exclusively from sustainable fisheries in the Antarctic, through our partners Aker BioMarine™ who work with World Wildlife Foundation Norway to ensure sustainable krill harvesting.
